Hewitt Stuns Old Rival Federer

Energy Sports

Both 32 years old, it appeared early in their careers that Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt would battle on top for years.  But while Federer earned the most grand slams and spent the most weeks on top of the rankings in history, Hewitt faded away, almost forgotten.  After winning 7 of their first 9 meetings, Hewitt only won 2 of the next 18.  But, he turned back the clock with an inspired performance to beat Federer in the Brisbane final, continuing his tradition of upping his game at home.  After racing out to a quick start, Hewitt struggled as Federer staged a comeback, but regained his game to win 6-1, 4-6, 6-3.
