Djokovic halts Hewitt's Open

THE Australian Open has lost its final Australian singles hope.

Former world number one Lleyton Hewitt was tumbled out of the Open by current number one Novak Djokovic 6-1, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 last night on Rod Laver Arena.

Hewitt capitulated in the first set, winning only the one game, and looked to be heading for a straight sets defeat when the reigning champion captured the second.

However, the Serbian faltered in the third set, handing Hewitt a foothold in the match and giving the crowd a sense that another five-set Hewitt epic was on the cards.

But the number one seed dashed those dreams, breaking Hewitt for the eight time in the match to claim a four-set victory.

Djokovic will now meet Spaniard David Ferrer in the quarter-finals.
