    January 21st, 2016: the 35-year-old Lleyton Hewitt played his last professional match losing 2-6 4-6 4-6 to one year younger David Ferrer. An interesting thing: it’s the first time that two players created a H2H consisted of four meetings at all majors (Ferrer edges 3-1, lost at Wimbledon ’06 their first encounter). Three days later (along with Sam Groth) Hewitt lost the third round in doubles (to V.Pospisil/J.Sock 4-6 2-6).

    Hewitt’s Grand Slam records:
    – singles: 148-64 (sixty-six appearances, two titles)
    – doubles: 25-17 (nineteen appearances, one title)
    Hewitt is the last man to win Grand Slam titles in singles & doubles.

    Hewitt’s four Grand Slam singles finals:
    2001 US Open: Pete Sampras 7-6 6-1 6-1
    2002 Wimbledon: David Nabandian 6-1 6-3 6-2
    2004 US Open: Roger Federer 0-6 6-7 0-6
    2005 Australian Open: Marat Safin 6-1 3-6 4-6 4-6

    …and his three ‘Masters’ finals:
    2001 Sydney: Sebastien Grosjean 6-3 6-3 6-4
    2002 Shanghai: Juan C. Ferrero 7-5 7-5 2-6 2-6 6-4
    2004 Houston: Roger Federer 3-6 2-6

    Only one month after his retirement, Hewitt as a captain of the Australian Davis Cup team, plays a doubles rubber (along with John peers losing to the Bryan brothers 3-6 3-6 6-4 6-4 3-6)
