Lleyton Hewitt Looking for Revival of His Career in Australian Open 2008

The Australian Open 2005 finalist, Lleyton Hewitt is now waiting for another home ground grand slam tournament. The former world no. 1 could not win any Australian Open singles title so far. The Australian is now ranked 2nd in the men’s ranking. He has set his eyes on coming back to the top ten this year and that is why, he wants to perform well in all of the four grand slam tournaments. The Australian is now under the coaching of Tony Roche.

However, Lleyton Hewitt has a tough draw in the tournament with possible third round opponent could be Safin or Baghdatis, and third seed Djokovic in the fourth round. Moreover, Roger Federer is the most probable semi final opponent of Hewitt. Despite the tough draw, Hewitt seems to be confident.

IOL reported:

"Well, every year is another year down the drain, I guess," Hewitt said.
"(But) not really. I'm only 26 at the moment. The body's been feeling really good the last couple of months.
"You need a little bit of luck in any Grand Slam to win it and for me right at the moment, it's just a matter of trying to survive the first week.
"If I put myself in a position deep in the second week, I've got as good a chance as anyone."

Lleyton Hewitt is now 26 and it is very much possible for the Australian to retain his form. I think, he has lots of talent and if he can keep himself in the right shape then it is possible to regain his lost ground in world tennis. The home crowd will also be happy to see their boy playing well in the tournament. Now, let us see if Hewitt can live up to the expectations of his fans this time around.
