Lleyton Hewitt to come out of retirement at the Australian Open

Lleyton Hewitt, the former world No 1 and Wimbledon champion, has announced that aged 36 he will be playing the men's doubles event in Melbourne with fellow Aussie Sam Groth.

Hewitt retired as a player at the Australian in 2016, but he has still remained heavily involved in tennis. As well as captaining the Australian Davis Cup team, Hewitt picked up his racket to partner John Peers against the Bryan brothers in a Davis Cup doubles rubber last March and then entered the Wimbledon doubles event three months later.

Hewitt says goodbye to professional tennis

Hewitt says goodbye to professional tennis

Lleyton Hewitt has retired from professional tennis on Thursday night in Melbourne after David Ferrer defeated him1 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 in the second round of the Australian Open.

This was his 20th successive Australian Open.

As expected, Hewitt left it all out on the court, but Ferrer held off the Aussie’s challenge to claim victory in two hours and 32 minutes on Rod Laver Arena. Hewitt was watched from his box by his family, Tony Roche and Thanasi Kokkinakis among others.

“He was too good tonight,” Hewitt said. “He’s a Top 8 player in the world, couple of times a semi-finalist here. He plays extremely well in these conditions and is at the top of his game at the moment.

Lleyton Hewitt def James Duckworth 7-6(5) 6-2 6-4

Q. Farewell tour continues.
LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah. Live to fight another couple days. That's good.

Q. Seen you battle for so many five-setters. Almost nice not to have to do that tonight and enjoy a comfortable three-set win?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I wouldn't say 'comfortable.' Obviously that third set I had to dig deep and make a lot of balls to try to get back into it.

He raised his game. I was kind of waiting for him to just dip off a little bit there in the third set. Eventually it happened.

Lleyton Hewitt Press Conference - Australian Open R1 Tuesday, 20 January, 2015

Q. What was the most pleasing thing about that?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Just getting the four points, getting the win. It's always tough any Grand Slam, especially early on in tournaments, especially the start of the year, more so playing at home in your home Grand Slam. The first match is always tough to get through. It's obviously a big buildup to it, as well. You know, I was obviously the favorite going out there tonight, but I knew he was going to be really flashy and I was going to have to weather the storm when he had a run-on of games. Happened every time I played against him. I was able to do that and change the momentum when I needed to.

Q. In the last six years when you have gotten past the first round, you've made it to the Round of 16. Do you find getting over that first hurdle is massive?

LLEYTON HEWITT: It helps obviously. Yeah, obviously the draw can open up a little bit if you keep putting yourself in a position, you hang in there and find a way to win. That was important tonight, to find a way. Obviously I get another opportunity on Thursday. I'll look forward to that. It's going to be another challenge, another step up in class. But come Thursday, I'll be ready.

Q. What does Becker bring to the table?

Lleyton Hewitt Interview - Australian Open Saturday, 17 January, 2015



Q. How do you rate your chances heading in, I suppose?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Oh, I just take it one match at a time obviously. Just try and focus on my first-round opponent, what I need to do to try to get through that match. Played him a couple times before in Davis Cup over five sets, so at least I'm well-prepared for what to expect out there. Obviously just try and get my body as close to 100% by Tuesday. Hopefully go out there and execute what I need to do.



Q. Was it a relief to finally get somebody that wasn't a high seed in the first round of the Australian Open?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, you don't really focus on it that much, to tell you the truth. It's nice not to play one of the real top guys. But you've got to be prepared to play anyone. I try not to worry about it leading into the draw obviously. I've been in this many times to this tournament, it's not something I focus on, I guess, leading up a couple days out from it.



Q. Do you think you'll find yourself soaking up the atmosphere a little bit more? I know you've said it's not your last one, but every one is closer to the last one.
