Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt to trial shortened tennis format ahead of Australian Open
Kei Nishikori will play Marin Cilic for this year's US open men's singles title. It has been 38 majors and nearly a decade since a Grand Slam final failed to include at least one of the Big Four -- Djokovic, Federer, Rafael Nadal, or Andy Murray. That last occurred when Marat Safin beat Lleyton Hewitt at the 2005 Australian Open
Top seed Rafa Nadal will open his Indian Wells title defence against Radek Stepanek after the Czech overcame a poor second set to beat Denis Istomin 6-1 3-6 6-1 in the first round. Stepanek, ranked 50th in the world, was broken only once and did not double fault but needed nearly two hours to defeat the Uzbek. Also on Thursday, Lleyton Hewitt notched his 599th career win when he beat fellow Australian Matthew Ebden 7-6(2) 3-6 6-3. Hewitt will try for his 600th career victory in a second round encounter against South African Kevin Anderson, who has been a losing finalist in his past two ATP events. The top 32 seeds receive a bye to the second round, with the leading players making their first appearance over the weekend. Serbian Novak Djokovic is the second seed, while Stanislas Wawrinka, the Australian Open champion from Switzerland, is third seed for the season's first ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament. On the women's side, the second round starts on Friday and among those in action will be second s ...

Pat Rafter's comeback lasted only one match after he and Lleyton Hewitt went out of the men's doubles at the Australian Open
Due to a case of having the stupid, I missed the Federer-Nadal game last night. 12:30 AM PST on Friday is actually Thursday night. Hmmm! But, glad that Nadal won. If he wins the Australian Open, he's gonna be the first man to win all two slams TWICE and will go on to win his 14th. We all know the 15th (French) is already his (as long as he's not injured). Someone's catching up on all the slams. For those who said "Federer has more slams than anyone else, hence GOAT", here's a question. Hypothetically speaking, if Nadal wins 3 more in the next few years, will he auto-magically surpass Federer as the Greatest Of All Time? That's been my only beef with arguments about someone being the greatest of all time based on just the number of cups they've won. Does rivalry count for nothing? Pete Sampras had Andre Agassi on his *** throughout his career. Borg had McEnroe, Connors had Borg, Lendl had Becker. For a major part of his career, Roger Federer had Lleyton Hewitt. Does that sound like a fair comparison at all ...

Bernard Tomic’s Australian Open campaign has ended prematurely after just one set with Rafael Nadal. An apologetic Tomic says a groin injury forced his early retirement. Lleyton Hewitt also lost a grueling five set match against Italian Andreas Seppi. What are your thoughts on Tomic's early exit? Who will you be watching now that both Tomic and Hewitt have departed the tournament?
Australian Open: No sweat for Nadal, Federer, Murray. Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray all spent mercifully little time on court but Lleyton Hewitt bowed out in a five-set thriller in sweltering conditions at the Australian Open Tuesday. Top seed Nadal was only on court for 41 minutes as his first-round Australian opponent Bernard Tomic retired in a night match with a groin injury after the Spaniard had won the opening set 6-4. Federer, the 17-time Grand Slam title-winner, made light work of Australian wildcard James Duckworth, winning 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 in one hour 46 minutes as temperatures hovered around 42 Celsius (107.6 Fahrenheit) during the day. Three-time runner-up Andy Murray was on court for one hour 27 minutes to register a 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 win over Japan’s Go Soeda. But fiercely competitive Hewitt will not join the superstars in the second round after going down 7-6 (7/4), 6-3, 5-7, 5-7, 7-5 to Italian 24th seed Andreas Seppi in a draining four hours and 18 minutes. Tomic looked to be in ...

Aussie pair Lleyton Hewitt and the retired Pat Rafter are a surprise entry into the men's doubles at this year's Australian Open. - 2014 Australian Open Tennis Championships
A pair of doddering 32-year-olds will give it a go in the hot cauldron of Rod Laver Arena on Tuesday. Lleyton Hewitt is playing his 18th consecutive Australian Open and Roger Federer his 57th Grand Slam event in a row, breaking the record he shared with Wayne Ferreira of South Africa. Hewitt made his tournament debut in another millennium – 1997. “It’s the only time I’ve never played on Rod Laver Arena,” he laughed, “my only singles match on an outside court.” ‘Rusty’ from Adelaide is 30-17 at Melbourne Park and has only once made it past the round of 16 – losing the 2005 final to Marat Safin. His victory over Federer in the Brisbane International final two weeks ago has been a boost. “My ball striking at the moment is as good as it’s been in a long time,” he said. Hewitt is 3-3 head-to-head with this afternoon’s opponent, 29-year-old Andreas Seppi, but the Italian has not won a match in 2014, while Hewitt is 5-0. Federer, 4-1 this year, is no longer the force he was circa 2004 ...

Aussie tennis legend Lleyton Hewitt will look to cap off a terrific week at the Brisbane International by upsetting all time great Roger Federer in the final. Join us for live scores and commentary from 4.30pm AEDT. Hewitt is appearing in his first ATP tour final on Australian soil since 2005 – the year that saw him reach the Australian Open final. For the first time in many years, Hewitt is playing with 100 percent fitness and he has certainly showed enough at the Brisbane International to suggest that he will be a dangerous floater in the men’s draw come the Australian Open. As per usual, Hewitt showcased determination and pure grit to come from a set down and beat Kei Nishikori in three tough sets in the semi-final. Played in grueling heat, Hewitt had to dig deep to eventually win in three sets against a player eight years his junior.

The 2008 ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament was a tennis tournament played on indoor hard courts. It was the 36th edition of the event known that year as the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, and was part of the ATP International Series Gold of the 2008 ATP Tour.

Brisbane tournament officials said Wednesday that Williams, the defending champion, and Australian Lleyton Hewitt would join the previously announced Roger Federer at the hard-court tournament at the Queensland Tennis Centre from Dec. 29-Jan. 5.

Hewitt recently led Australia back into the Davis Cup's elite World Group after a six-year absence. He also reached the round of 16 at the U.S. Open.Source:OlySports.com.
David Nalbandian: 2002 Wimbledon finalist retires Former Wimbledon finalist David Nalbandian has retired from tennis because of a shoulder injury. The 31-year-old Argentine, who reached a career high of three in the world rankings in 2006, was runner-up to Lleyton Hewitt at Wimbledon in 2002. Nalbandian reached the semi-finals or better at all four Grand Slam tournaments during his career. He was also disqualified after kicking an advertising board into a line judge's shin at Queen's Club in 2012. "It's not easy what's happening to me now, my shoulder is not helping me to train as I should for the circuit," he said. David Nalbandian Age: 31 From: Cordoba, Argentina Turned pro: 2000 ATP titles: 11 Grand Slam best: Australian Open semi-final (2006); French Open semi-final (2004, 2006); Wimbledon final (2002); US Open semi-final (2003) Win/loss record: 383/192 Prize money: £6,864,447 Nalbandian, from Cordoba, has slipped to 231 in the rankings after numerous injuries, the latest of which saw him undergo sho ...
Lleyton Hewitt has not gone further in a major than Roger Federer since the Australian Open 2005. Tomorrow, he has his chance.
2000s Sampras reached the semifinals of the Australian Open in early 2000 (falling to the eventual champion Agassi in a five-set match) and won the Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Florida for the third time in March. He then won a record-breaking 13th Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, battling through tendonitis in his right shin and a painful back injury in the process. This victory was his eighth consecutive win in a Grand Slam final (starting at 1995 Wimbledon), which remains a record in the Open Era. After this victory, Sampras did not win another title for more than two years. He lost in the finals of the 2000 and 2001 US Open to Marat Safin and Lleyton Hewitt, respectively, leading many to speculate that Sampras would never capture another major title. At the 2001 Wimbledon Championships, Sampras lost to Roger Federer, who was 19 at the time, 6–7(7), 7–5, 4–6, 7–6(2), 5–7, in the fourth round, ending Sampras's 31-match winning streak at Wimbledon. The match also marked the first and only time ...

Tsonga bounces into quarters Monday, 21 January, 2013 By Nicholas McCarvel Share this If there’s a little bit more flight in Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s post-match celebrating hops, it might be because the Frenchman feels as though he’s standing on sturdier ground at this year’s Australian Open. The reason? He’s got an Aussie in his corner. Beginning in October, the world No.7 partnered up with Roger Rasheed, the former coach of Lleyton Hewitt and – more recently – fellow Frenchman Gael Monfils. On Monday at Rod Laver Arena, Tsonga won through a tough test with compatriot Richard Gasquet 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-2, booking a place in the quarterfinals against either Roger Federer or Milos Raonic. So how’s Tsonga’s Australian lingo coming? “G’day mate,” he joked with a smile during an on-court interview. Rasheed looked on from the player’s box half smirking, half shaking his head. While the accent needs a little work, Tsonga’s game has been raised a level thanks to Rasheed, who Tsonga revealed is ...

World Sports News Djokovic, Berdych win in style in Open Another day another victory for world No.1 Novak Djokovic, who edged closer to a third successive Australian Open title with an entertaining win over Czech Radek Stepanek. The defending champion said the match was the toughest of his three rounds so far at Melbourne Park but he still managed to rout the veteran in straight sets 6-4 6-3 7-5. Czech fifth seed Tomas Berdych was even more dominant in his 6-3 6-2 6-2 thrashing of Austrian 26th seed Jurgen Melzer on Friday night. But Djokovic's clash with Stepanek was more of a crowd-pleaser, with the underdog entertaining fans both with theatrical behaviour and variety of play. Stepanek turned frequently to old-school serve-volley tactics but Djokovic always came up with the big points when needed. The 34-year-old had a break point in the seventh game, but couldn't convert it and didn't get another until the eighth game of the third set, which Djokovic swatted away with an ace. Stepanek advanced to the n ...
World Sports News Tomic must make fast start against Federer It's boom or bust for Bernard Tomic, who says he must win the opening set or perish against fearless frontrunner Roger Federer in their Australian Open blockbuster on Saturday night. In an unparalleled career, Federer's only three Grand Slam defeats from a set up against non-major winners have come against finalists David Nalbandian, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Robin Soderling. It is a frightening record that Tomic is all too aware of heading into their master-versus-apprentice third-round showdown. "The most important thing against Roger is that I've got to hold and keep it close within the first set," Tomic said. "If I keep it close in the first set, manage to win that first set, then it can be a different story. "Being one set to love up is a huge advantage against him. If he frees up and wins that first set, it's different. "But I'm confident." Not dropping serve in four matches and 76 games is fuelling Tomic's belief that he can eliminate the se ...

World Sports News Hewitt out to take eighth seed's Open draw Some deem it another horror Grand Slam draw, but luckless Lleyton Hewitt sees his first-round Australian Open showdown with Serbian eighth seed Janko Tipsarevic as a golden opportunity. So often pitch-forked into early-round confrontations with the Federers, Nadals and Djokovics, Hewitt is relishing the chance to go deep in the tournament with none of the sport's dominators within sight this time around. Lining up for his record 17th straight Open, Hewitt squares off with Tipsarevic at Rod Laver Arena on Monday night. After claiming three successive top-15 scalps to secure his second Kooyong Classic on Saturday, unseeded Hewitt is in a fearless mood. "I don't care. I'll knock him off, try to take his spot in the draw," Hewitt said on Sunday. "It was exactly what I wanted out of the week at Kooyong. There were a lot of positives to take out of it. "The pleasing thing for me, I feel like I got better with every match - my sharpness and cleanness, ...

World Sports News Hewitt opens with win at Kooyong Finally pain-free, Lleyton Hewitt served up a warning to his Australian Open rivals when he upset Canadian world No.15 Milos Raonic at the Kooyong Classic. Hewitt, whose ranking of 82 leaves him at the mercy of the Open draw, was out to prove he could tangle with anyone in the early rounds at Melbourne Park next week. The 31-year-old, who defeated Raonic in their only previous meeting at last year's Australian Open, turned on a three set boilover to prevail 6-3 1-6 7-6 (7-4) at a windswept Kooyong. Winner of the Kooyong title two years ago, Hewitt said his first lead-up match provided him with the competition and confidence he needed leading into his Open campaign. "It was good but obviously they were really tough conditions for everyone out there playing today," Hewitt said. "But that's what you come to expect coming to Kooyong and centre court - it's always tough with the wind. "It's sort of blustery and very tough to get a guide on actually which way i ...
