Hitting with Lleyton Hewitt

What could top off hitting with Lleyton Hewitt at his very own court, the very person who you’ve idolised and is a former No. 1 world ranked player. This week for me is an opportunity most people just don’t get. The nerves got me the first few days and I could not get it together as I had hoped. As you look up the other end of the court, and you see who is up there returning balls to me, its pretty hard to focus. I feel a lot less nervous each day, and its down to business with Lleyton and that’s what I like about him. He goes beyond every expectation you have of him, he’s professional, hard working and so consistent. He hits the ball so deep each shot and every point is pure hard work. Just to be on the court with Lleyton and coach Tony Roche also Australia’s Davis Cup Coach, who has coached many other multi Grand Slam winners such as Ivan Lendl, Patrick Rafter and Roger Federer has brought a new level of intensity and made me even more determined than ever to work harder and achieve the goals I have set for myself.
