Although I'm not a huge Tennis Fan, Why the Hell is Lleyton Hewitt allowed to act the way he does?? Considering the backlash towards our cricketers this week, Lleyton's comments after losing last night: "The Umpires were completely useless" are an embarrassment to Australia.

I think he is without doubt my least favourite sportsperson. And that includes Nathan Brown.

I hope he gets knocked out in the first round of the Australian Open by an unseeded no name. [With no legs]

Yes tennis players are usually a pretty petulant bunch of primadonnas and Lleyton Hewitt is a good example of that.

I never though much of him when he'd be out there with his backwards facing baseball cap on the court whilst playing. He looked like a delinquent about to drive a hotted up Monaro down Chapel / Lygon / Alfrieda Street with the doof doof going full bore.

Having said that the Australian Cricket Team is not my favourite group of individuals either. Fine team, no one will dispute that, but I just don't dig them either. I just can't jump up and down and get enthused and enraptured at their every success which is pretty well each time they play. For my line of thinking, give me back blokes with the demeanour, charisma and good nature of Max Walker, Bruce Yardley and Douggie Walters. But that is near on 30 years ago- a whole generation of spoilt brats have grown up in that time.

and he got beat the other day as well!

At least Hewitt has got a Wimbledon win under his belt unlike Rafter. But I agree I don't like his antics on the court.
