Melbourne, Australia - Australian Tennis Open - Hewitt (Aus) Vs Ferrer (ESP) - 21 January 2016

 

 

We were at and videod portions of this 21 January 2016 match. We were in the 1st Row - Rod Laver Court.

 

 

 

 

This match was very very big in Australia as it made Australian Tennis Open history as it was Leyton Hewitts last Australian Open Singles Match as he moves into his retirement phase.

 

 

 

Lleyton Glynn Hewitt  (born 24 February 1981) is an Australian former world no. 1 retired professional tennis player.

 

Hewitt is the youngest male ever to be ranked no. 1 in the world in singles, at the age of 20. His most notable career achievements include winning the 2001 US Open and 2002 Wimbledon men's singles titles, the 2000 US Open men's doubles title, winning back-to-back Tennis Masters Cup (now called the ATP World Tour Finals) titles in 2001 and 2002, and winning the Davis Cup with Australia in 1999 and 2003. Hewitt made it to the finals of the 2004 US Open, where he was defeated by Roger Federerin straight sets. Between 1997 and 2016, he contested twenty consecutive Australian Open men's singles tournaments, including making it to the 2005 final where he was defeated by Marat Safin in four sets.

 

He bid farewell to his professional tennis career at the 2016 Australian Open at the Rod Laver Arena in front of his home crowd, where he lost to eighth seed David Ferrer in the second round.
