05 May 2015 [13:59] - Today.Az

LLEYTON Hewitt has played his last French Open after confirming he will skip this month’s clay court grand slam to focus on Wimbledon and Davis Cup.

Hewitt forecast such a likely scenario in January when he revealed this year would be his last full season on tour.

He will draw the curtain on his celebrated career after making a record 20th consecutive Australian Open appearance in 2016.

The 34-year-old former world No.1’s manager confirmed Hewitt would bypass Roland Garros and head to Europe next month for the grasscourt season before returning home for Australia’s Davis Cup quarter-final against Kazakhstan in Darwin from July 17-19.
