And not everyone was happy at Hewitt's spotlight-stealing interview, including his former coach Roger Rasheed. "No (I'm not getting a percentage of their income)", he said. Lleyton didn't need to. Don't worry - Lleyton's legacy and tennis speaks for itself. He's playing Davis Cup - I thought he was retired. Yeah (they've stopped). I don't think he's got my number anymore, hopefully.
"I look at Alex de Minaur, Bolt, Popyrin, what Millman did at the US Open, there's a lot of good stories too", he said.
The former Australian No. 1 added that he had been supportive of a troubled Tomic for some time, and that "deep down [Tomic] knows what I've done for him". They get one, two weeks a year to shine on home soil. Australia's Bernard Tomic in action during the match against Croatia's Marin Cilic.
Rasheed was not critical of Australia's players and instead spoke largely about the technical and mental aspects of being a professional tennis player.
Tomic claimed some players were picked for the Davis Cup team - and given Australian Open wildcards - because they were represented by a management company owned by Hewitt.
Hewitt said the threats were physical and that Tomic had also attempted to blackmail him over wild cards.
Hewitt started mentoring Tomic after retiring as a singles player, but says he has "not had anything to do" with Tomic for a couple of years.
"No. No. I think the threats that I've received, for me and my family".
"I think the threats that I've received for me and my family that I've had for a year and a half now..."
Hewitt said he didn't feel threatened by Tomic's abuse but was frustrated after trying to help the world No.88 and one-time No.17. He became Davis Cup captain in 2016, soon after retiring from singles.
"Since then, I haven't had anything to do with Bernie..." He still kept making the wrong mistakes. And, to make matters worse, few decent results from the senior players.
"It's not the way you want to go about things, so absolutely something needs to be done".
For the first Time in 15 years, five Australians in the third round of the Australian Open.
