"I've never begun a tournament that I didn't think I could finish just to receive a guarantee - and I'm not going to start now," Hewitt said in a statement.<br /> <hr></blockquote>
I'm not a fan, but I definitely agree with hewitte here.. What a smart boy/man... <br />Tons of players have withdrawn on both sides of the fence recently. Agassi, Mauresmo, Dokic, Capriati, Hingis, both Williamses, I think Kim pulled out one week. Why? Because it's late in the season and everyone is BEAT!
"Hewitt is not like the Williams sisters- he's a real fighter and terrific tennis player" <hr></blockquote>
Have you looked to see what tennis player- male or female- has WON the most money this year? That's "WON", not "earned via endorsements. The last time I checked it was Venus Williams, so to me she is a hellava fighter and tennis player, her Lil sis is not doing too badly herself <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">
