Thursday, July 31, 2014

WASHINGTON - Veteran Lleyton Hewitt is the only Australian left at the ATP event in Washington after a second-round win over compatriot Marinko Matosevic.

Hewitt toppled Matosevic 6-4 6-3 in just over an hour and 20 minutes yesterday for a spot in the last 16.

It was the former world No.1's opening match of the pre-US Open hardcourt tournament, having enjoyed a bye for the first round.

The night didn't go so well for fellow Australian Bernard Tomic, whose six-match winning streak came to end in the second round.

Tomic went down 6-4 7-6 to Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan, less than a fortnight after winning the Claro Open final in Bogota.
