Playing style

Hewitt is a defensive baseline counterpuncher. He typically likes to stay back towards the baseline during a rally and will usually approach the net only to catch a short reply or drop shot from his opponent. His strength is his return game and he is often described as being among the best returners of serve in the game. Although he doesn't have the devastating return of Andre Agassi who is often regarded as the best returner of serve ever, at the 2004 Cincinnati Masters final commentator MaliVai Washington said that Hewitt was even more difficult to "ace" than Agassi because he gets more returns in play. Hewitt's tactics typically involve putting difficult service returns in play, consistently chasing down attempted winning shots from his opponent, and waiting for his opponent to make an error. In tennis, a player uses different strategies that play up his natural abilities and/or exploit his opponents weaknesses to gain the advantage and win more points. ...

Although he is known primarily as a baseline defender, Hewitt is actually a skilled volleyer and is known for having one of the best overhead smashes in the game. He also has underrated variety in his shots and will occasionally use a drop shot or drop volley to win a point. His signature shot however is the offensive topspin lob, a shot that he executes efficiently off both wings when his opponent approaches the net. US Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe and Jim Courier have both described Hewitt's lob as being the best in the world. Arguably the best volleyer in the game now, Tim Henman is well-known around the tennis community for his excellent touch.

However the area which has plagued Hewitt his whole career and has prevented him from achieving further success is his serve. The main problem with Hewitt's serve is that it is very flat and this does not give him much margin for error. Hewitt's height also means that he hits his serve with a lower projectile and this reduces his serve's effectiveness. Also, Hewitt's inability to hit a consistent 'kick' serve (rather he opts for a faster, riskier, slice serve) on his second serve often leads to him hitting numerous double faults. Throughout his career, Hewitt has made the decision to go strictly for aces and service winners on his first serve. Since 2005, he has powered up his first serve by lifting weights to become stronger and he is capable of serving up to 125mph. Although this does often allow him to achieve many aces in a match for a player his height (5' 10 1/2"), it lowers his serving percentage substantially. Hewitt often has a first serve percentage below 50%. His service motion he rocks his forward foot back (ala Pete Sampras) but then twists his feet sideways and launches into the court off of his toes. This unusual technique often causes Hewitt to "foot fault" in many of his matches because his left foot can easily go over the line. An interesting fact about Hewitt's serve is that he has an odd tendency to look at his opponent right before making impact with the ball on his serve.


Hewitt is known for his tenacity. More than once, he has been close to losing a match in straight sets only to come back and win. For example, in the 2003 Davis Cup semifinal against Switzerland in Melbourne, Australia, Roger Federer had match points in the third set. Hewitt came back to win 5–7, 2–6, 7–6(4), 7–5, 6–1.

Hewitt is a huge fan of the Rocky films. In his junior years, he was often heard saying "Come on Balboa" after winning crucial points in his matches.[9] As a senior player, he is still heard shouting "Come on" at turning points during matches, often simultaneously pointing his fingers at his face for added effect. Robert Rocky Balboa, Sr. ...


Controversies

In a five set match with James Blake at the 2001 US Open, Hewitt complained to umpire Andres Egli and asked for a black linesman to be moved after being called for two foot-faults in the third set. "Look at him," Hewitt said, gesturing at the linesman. He approached the chair umpire and, pointing first to the offending linesman and then to Blake, said,"Look at him and you tell me what the similarity is." [10] Some witnesses, including Blake, had suggested that the "similarity" referred to the colour shared by Blake and the linesman.[11] Hewitt claimed he had merely pointed out that the same linesman had foot-faulted him on both occasions, while other officials had made no such calls.

During the 2001 French Open he was fined US$1000 for calling the chair umpire, Andreas Egli, a "spastic." Hewitt denied this.[12][13] Look up spastic in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Hewitt blamed his losses at the 2005 and 2006 Australian Open on uncooperative maintenance of the courts by the tournament directors. "I don't think there's been a lot of homework done on how the balls play on this surface," he said. "Mate, it could be slower than the French Open." Hewitt was disappointed that the organisers had ignored his concerns about the courts. "I feel like I'm fighting with people that we should be working together to try and make Australian tennis better," he said.[14] Since then, long-time Australian Open chief executive Paul McNamee has resigned, leaving new tournament director Craig Tiley to confirm that the main aim for 2007 was to provide "uniformity and consistency" when the stadium's match and practice courts were resurfaced in November 2006. The courts will be as fast as they were in the second week of the 2006 tournament, which should suit Hewitt's game better.[15] Tim Henman and Dmitry Tursonov playing on the Margaret Court Arena in the first round. ...

During a 2005 Davis Cup match between Australia and Argentina, Guillermo Coria and Hewitt had a series of antics, with the tension heightening when Coria hit an overhead at Hewitt. The match was won by Hewitt. Guillermo Sebastián Coria (born January 13, 1982 in Rufino, Santa Fe Province), nicknamed El Mago (The Magician in Spanish), is a professional tennis player from Argentina. ...


Hewitt is disliked by some Pro Tour players. Mary Carillo said: “He makes guys crazy, they try hard to ignore him, but he’s always barking on the other side of the net.” In his 2005 Australian Open match against Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela, Hewitt angered his opponent by his celebration of an unforced error, to the point where Chela served directly at Hewitt, and spat at him during the changeover.[10] Mary Carillo (born March 15, 1957 in Queens, New York) is an American writer, sports commentator, and former tennis player. ...

In 2006 Hewitt was nominated by GQ Magazine as one of the '10 Most Hated Athletes' in Sport [10]. That year, he also came under criticism from Australian child psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg for "exploiting" his child during the 2006 Logie Awards.[16] Model Heidi Klum on the cover of GQ.

Niclas Kroon, who describes himself as having introduced the famous "vicht" salute to world tennis, is outraged that Lleyton Hewitt has adopted his trademark salute and stands to make millions of dollars from it. However, in a perfect demonstration of the pot calling the kettle black, Kroon himself adopted the idea from Joshua Wilson after seeing him play at a regional tennis centre, in Traralgon Australia. Kroon used his sporting fortune to buy the rights to the gesture, stealing it from an unwilling Wilson who, on a student salary, could not afford to buy the rights himself. Similarly, Hewitt is understood to have bought the rights to the distinctive celebratory gesture behind the back of Kroon, after the former Swedish pro inadvertently let it lapse. Kroon, along with former No.1 Mats Wilander, held the rights from 1988 and often used the signal whenever they won a point or game. Broadly meaning "for sure", it is now widely used by athletes from other sports, including swimmer Grant Hackett. "I wish he had called me first," Kroon said from his home in Houston, Texas. "I don't know what to say. It's all about business and making money. I'm so sick and tired of shit like that." [17]
