Quote of the Day - Lleyton Hewitt after winning in Houston

"This is what all the hard work is for, to play weeks like this and have this kind of feeling at the end... It makes going through the surgery and all the hard work worth it."

"It's a big day to win a clay court event. I feel every year I'm getting better on clay. Now I'm looking really forward to the French Open - with a good draw I think I can do some damage there."


- Lleyton Hewitt after grabbing the Houston title on Sunday.

The former world number 1, who is currently ranked 57, captured his first title in 2 years with his victory in Houston, which is Hewitt's first career clay title.

Hewitt, who is looking to do some damage at the French Open this year, has made it as far as the quarters in Roland Garros twice in his career, in 2001 and 2004 (lost to Ferrero and Gaudio respectively).

It must feel great to achieve new feats like that at this point in one's career. Congratz, Lleyton, am happy for you, but please don't oust Safin from Monte tomorrow :)
