Lleyton Hewitt pulled out of this month’s U.S. Open, which he won 10 years ago, the United States Tennis Association said.
Lleyton Hewitt and James Blake were given wild-card entries to the 2012 U.S. Open, the final Grand Slam of the tennis season.
Former winners Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova advanced to the Australian Open’s fourth round, losing five games between them to complete career-best starts in the first week of a tennis Grand Slam.
"I was pretty happy with my ball-striking."
