January 2 , 2007: "There shouldn't be a heat rule regardless. We're athletes. If you don't put in the hard yards, don't play. So it's only fair the ATP [doesn't]. We're only playing three sets too; if you can't cope with that, then get another job."
Lleyton Hewitt, pointing out that the U.S. Open had a history of players cramping in hot conditions but the USTA had not brought in a heat rule, a policy which he also favors in Australia despite temperatures reaching more than 42C (107F) at the Adelaide International tournament.

September 13, 2004: "When he plays like he did today, he's in a different league than the other players I've played the last two weeks. He's such a big-time player. He plays some of his best tennis in the big matches."
-- Lleyton Hewitt, after superstar Roger Federer whipped him 6-0, 7-6, 6-0 in the U.S. Open final for Federer's third Grand Slam title this year
