• Happy Hewitt back in his element on grass

    Happy Hewitt back in his element on grass Lleyton Hewitt is so happy to be back on grass that the 32-year-old Australian doesn't need anyone spoiling his current good mood as he builds at Queen's club for his 15th straight Wimbledon appearance.

    "I don't know. I'm not going to keep answering that every day," snapped the 2002 Wimbledon winner when asked how long he could continue a career which has been marked by injury.

    Instead, Hewitt prefers to concentrate on the joy of playing on his favourite surface. "It's one of my favorite events," he said of Queen's, the classic grand slam tuneup which he has won four times, most recently, though in 2006.

    "I've always enjoyed getting off the clay anyway and onto the grass. I have had such a good record here, as well. Most times it's taken pretty good players to beat me here."

    Hewitt, who went 0-3 in an abbreviated clay season, refuses to gauge his potential progress on grass. "We'll see what happens with the draw and just take it one match at a time. I still believe in my ball striking and obviously my movement out there. I still enjoy the big tournaments, obviously Wimbledon, Australian Open, two of my favorite tournaments. The Grand Slams and Davis Cup are still what I play for."

What? no french open? and happy to get off the clay! What a stupid comment to make Hewitt! Didn't you know FO is the only slam that matters and clay is the only surface tennis should be played on? Are you telling me all these rafalings on this blog are the clowns everyone perceives them to be? LOL!

Hewitt- greatest competitor this sport has seen along with connors. When he says Davis cup is important to him, he is willling to go to any country to help Aussie team every which way he can, unlike a certain drama queen that plays singles only, home ties on clay only. LOL!
