Woodbridge likes Hewitt's chances at Games
Australian Olympic coach Todd Woodbridge says that Lleyton Hewitt could be factor at the Olympics. Hewitt, who has had multiple surgeries in recent years, reached the final of Newport on grass two weeks ago. "Lleyton is moving better than he was here four weeks ago. He is the best I have seen him for a long time," Woodbrdge told the Australian. "It has been years since he was pain free. If he can get a reasonable draw he is certainly hitting the ball well enough to go into the tournament. The game has got really big and there are bugs out there who go for their shots. He can keep with them and do that a little easier than if they overpower him in a five-setter."
Hewitt was angry that he did not get a wild card into doubles, but he does have a chance to get one in mixed, possibly with Samantha Stosur. "I think Lleyton is up for a medal and if he could get a medal in any way, shape or form he will take it, so if it means he can get out there in the mixed I think he will have a go," said Woodbridge.
