Delpo hugs it out
I honest to God laughed for about 5 minutes straight at the youngest Hewitt’s face here. And Mia on the left has got a pretty amazing face going on too.
Since the Hewitt kiddies are stealing the spotlight at the moment. This is my all-time fave picture of them.

What has been the worst (thing about your injury)?
The uncertainty. If we talk about competition, obviously to miss the Olympics. But speaking in general terms, the worst is the day by day. You never know when you will return, when you will feel that you are improving.
Petko you are the best.
This is for you Rafa fans out there because you guys are having a pretty rough time huh?
See this photo makes you think of the awesome things about Rafa, like his ridiculously happy little face, and is goofy-ness, and his ridic hipster glasses! So try not to worry kiddos Rafa will be back soon you’ll see!

How do I begin to explain Serena Williams?
oh my god.
Lleyton Hewitt’s interview:
Are there any of the big boys you really warm to?
Yes. (Rafael) Nadal. He is my favourite to watch, to train with, everything. For me it was even awesome to be able to commentate his Australian Open final against Djokovic. Rafa was struggling with his body going into the tournament but played one of the greatest matches of all time. His never-say-die attitude is awesome.
I remember you saying he intimidates opponents even before a ball is hit by generally being a bulldog. Impressed?
Yeah. He plays to his time. He is always the last to get up at the change of ends. Even when you are tossing the coin at the net he is jumping around and in your face. He sprints back to the base line after that and then and this is something the public don’t see he hits the ball much harder in the warm-ups than anyone else. It creates a major presence.
Does it make a difference?
Of course. Matches are won and lost so many times in the locker room. Guys get in their mind how strong he is the warm-ups and that they will have to endure four hours of that to beat him they are beaten even before they step on court. But that’s why I like him. He basically says you are going to have to kill me to beat me.
