Lleyton Hewitt's Lost Dream of the Australian Open
Lleyton Hewitt was gutted after his loss to Argentine David Nalbandian last night. He looked very promising at one point when he took the lead but it ended in tears after an exciting five-set match that lasted four hours and 48 minutes. "I'll sit back and look at it but right at this moment, it's disappointing Hewitt said. "To come so close and fight for so long and not quite get the win is frustrating."
Just once in 15 appearances at Melbourne Park has Hewitt gone beyond the fourth round at his home Grand Slam. As he approaches his 30th birthday, will he ever be able to achieve his dream of winning the Australia Open? He is now ranked outside the world's top 50.
