Great matchup to end U.S. Open
With two excellent former Grand Slam winners playing, this U.S. Open final could go down as the best ever.
This match will be more about what Federer is able to do than what Hewitt is able to do. Federer has the ability, on a good day, to serve Hewitt off the court. He can overpower Hewitt from the baseline, and he's versatile enough to alter his game to be more aggressive if he chooses.
With Hewitt, you know exactly what you are going to get. He's a consistent baseliner who moves great and can counterpunch better than anyone. He protects his serve very well without getting a lot of free points with the serve, which is unusual in men's tennis. If these two players play at the top of their games, Federer will win the match because he's the best player in the world.
