...is that he is silent. No yelling, no starting the lawnmower, no
nothing. Just his tennis. Nice match.

Bit like when Mac played Borg - never played up just all tennis.  I
guess that's a big compliment & sign of respect for Borg/Fed.....

Mmm, from Hewitt, his c'mons are absent when he's down... meaning he
*really* focuses and drops the act, because that's all there is to it.
An act to get on his opponents' nerves, it is bad enough to double fault
to get this guy kicking it in your face...

He should try it against fed, roger would collapse in gales of laughter
and maybe lose some focus :D

I though it was starting a chainsaw.  I don't understand why people get
upset about Hewitt, but then I grew up watching Nastase, Connors and
McEnroe.  To me all of the guys playing now behave quite decently,
including Hewitt.

The bad thing about seeing Hewitt play Federer is the result....too
predictable.

I'm with you.  Frankly, I kind of miss the days when the real bad boys were
on court.  There was nothing more entertaining than watching Connors swagger
around the court with his racquet between his legs, rubbing it suggestively
and leering at the ladies in the front row.
