Aap
Friday, June 13, 2014

LONDON - Lleyton Hewitt and Bernard Tomic remain upbeat ahead of Wimbledon despite their preparations being cut short at Queen's Club.

Hewitt, a four-time champion at the London grass court event and a semi-finalist last year, fell 6-3 6-4 to Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in the second round on Wednesday.

He was followed out of the tournament by Tomic, who fought hard but lost 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-5) to tough Czech veteran Radek Stepanek.

The losses left Marinko Matosevic as the last Australian standing at Queen's.

He defeated Slovakian Lukas Lacko 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 to set up a third-round encounter with fifth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Thursday.

Hewitt had never lost to Lopez in four meetings.
