Lleyton Hewitt, Brisbane 2014

Lleyton Hewitt, 32, beat his fellow former world number one Roger Federer 6-1 4-6 6-3 to win his first title since Halle 2010. Hewitt will move back into the top 50 in the ATP rankings.
Finalist at the Australian Open in 2005, the former number one said:

“If I play like I did this week I have a chance of doing damage to some serious players. It gives me a lot more confidence going out there believing in how well I’m hitting the ball at the moment and that I can match up with the best guys.”
