Re: Unpopular Sport opinions
don't have to tell me about people underestimating Hewitt. Being Australian he carried 'australian tennis' for years and was constantly attacked by our media. He was always a far better player when he was yelling out cmon at the end of a winner etc. Which may sound dumb but for mine its all a big psychological advantage yelling out cmon and pumping yourself up. He got bagged so much that he's toned so far down he just doesn't have the same edge mentally.
I'd almost put him in a similar category to Murray in the sense that neither are bad players but the elite players will/did handle them.
Yeah I'd say Murray and young Hewitt are very well matched and would have had some amazing matches.
