Hewitt in Danger

September 19th, 2006 · No Comments · Tennis

Lleyton Hewitt arrived in Buenos Aires Argentina on Sunday night for a Davis Cup tie, accompanied by two personal security guards. He has previously been abused and felt threatened by the Argentinean supporters, but it seems like overkill to me.

If he was not popular with the Argentinean fans and players before now, this will certainly not make it any better. David Nalbandian, who Hewitt beat to win his Wimbledon title in 2002, has said that none of the other players like Hewitt, and out on the court this animosity may be just the extra fuel that players need to beat him.
