And as for the other Oz tennis hope wannabe Tomic, who "dared" discuss his third round match against Fed, like in good old days- Fed strikes back and puts him in his place:

“He's also got his work cut out in the first few rounds,” Federer told reporters. “He will be making a mistake about thinking about me in the third round because he also has to get there.”

Federer also said that just because Tomic has been hot the last two weeks is no guarantee that he’ll crack the Top 10 this year.


“I think we should go step by step, see how it goes,” Federer said. “Let's speak in a year's time. Everybody wants to jump from—what's his ranking 60—to 10 in a year. It's hard to do. No. 10 is a big ask. Don't forget how tough the Top 10 players are right now.”



In short: talk is cheap Australian Open 2013 Favourites - Page 2 4006036031!

“The last couple matches I’ve hit the ball as well as I can remember
when I hit it,” said Hewitt, who is playing his 17th consecutive
Australian Open. “I feel confident with where my game’s at the moment.
There are still a couple things I got to try to take care of when I’m on
the match court. But all in all, when my moving comes together and I’m
serving well, my returns and obviously passing shots and counterpunching
has been pretty good anyways. … I felt the way I was able to be
aggressive with the bigger, stronger guys, all three matches are three
of the biggest hitters out there. I was not able only to get their serve
back but put them under pressure on their service games. So that gives
me a lot of confidence moving forward.”

I noticed he's bulked up considerably in the last year, will be interesting to see how that works against the similar, younger version, Tipsarevic tomorrow night, AND the hopefully well implemented 20 sec rule...

Hewitt has beaten Delpo, Berdych, and Raonic in this tournament. Looks in good form. He can be dangerous for some top seeds.
