Hewitt Annexes Newport HOF Titles

Lleyton Hewitt

Lleyton Hewitt completed a rare double at the Newport Hall of Fame Tennis Championships by winning both singles and doubles events.

He won the singles event defeating huge serving Croatian Ivo Karlovic in a deciding third set tiebreak to take the match 6-3, 6-7(4), 7-6(3), then followed up by partnering with fellow Australian Chris Guccione to win the doubles title 7-5, 6-4 over Jonathan Erlich and Rajeev Ram.

The victory over Karlovic was Hewitt’s 30th career singles title, and propels the 33-year-old up to No. 41 in the ATP world rankings.
