With his win over Robin Haase in the first round of the Miami Sony Open, Lleyton Hewitt has become the 21st male player to record 600 match wins. Only Roger Federer (942) and Rafael Nadal (675) have won more matches among active players.

Said Hewitt:

Today was just like another match and an opportunity to go out there and play well.
Obviously afterwards, it’s a great milestone. Not many people get to achieve that. Not many people get the opportunity to get close to that, so it means I’ve been around for an awfully long time as well. I’m getting old.
A few years ago, when I had the last couple lot of surgeries, I probably would have doubted I’d get to this stage anyway. I’m still grateful I’m out there and able to compete with the best guys.
