Former Wimbledon Champion Leyton Hewitt comes into this year's edition of the French Open in the peculiar position of being one of the select few to have won a Grand Slam outside the big three. Hewitt has had a rough year and his win-loss record of 4-2 indicates how ittle hehas plyed this year. At the Aussie Open Hewitt did just what he does best and put in some good hardworking performances to reach the fourth round against all odds, being ranked 181 in the world at the time. Hewitt gave in another vintage performance as he took a set off World No.1 Novak Djokovic in the fourth round. Hewitt is currently ranked 176 in the world which is hard to believe for any tennis lover.
Slovenian Blaz Kavcic has recovered well after dropping to 118 in the world in February. He is now ranked 99 in the world and must feel rather odd to know that he is a whopping 77 places above his opponent today. His win-oss record stands at 3-8, and he has won a challenger event this year in Sao Paolo,also on clay.
Kavcic has won the only meeting between the two.
TennisEarth predicts Hewitt's experience to power him through this one.
