I've pondered this for quite some time and I think that after yesterday's results, I can finally make the statement that Lleyton Hewitt is in fact the new Jennifer Capriati. So what do I mean? Glad you asked. Check out these statistics for both players plus young upstart Kim Clijsters.

Capriati (former champion)
You know - 28 entries
I think - 10 entries
I mean - 8 entries
Like - 7 entries

Hewitt (and NEW champion of the world ....)
You know - 34 entries
I think - 22 entries
Like - 12 entries
I mean - 0 entries

Clijsters (promising young prospect?)
You know - 25 entries
I think - 10 entries
Like - 9 entries
I mean - 7 entries

So yes. Lleyton Hewitt is the new Jennifer Capriati of interviews. I'm not going to post them all because they're so long so if you wish to check it out for yourself, feel free at this site (http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/news/interviews/index.html).

Thanks for playing "Counting for Insanity" with your host MarcusRock.

no way marcus, Jenny is still alive at the RG so, she still has many opportunities to pile up on the statistics.

Meanwhile, Lleyton just managed to say NOOOOO to Tommy from his last interview.:D:devil:

Some of the non-English speaking players (or those who speak it as a second or third language) don't know how to use the words "you know", "I mean" and "like" in a proper sentence. They pick it up from the normal English-speaking people around them. Jennifer and Lleyton aren't any different to the rest of the world who speak English and use words like "you know", "I mean" and "like". Hands up who doesn't do it when they're pressed for answers or who are put on the spot?
