“We have a wild card, we have the ex-world-number-one Lleyton Hewitt … Who will break from ‘retirement’ to play at the Millennium Estoril Open alongside countryman Alex de Minaur,” they tweeted.
Hewitt retired from professional tennis in 2016, however made a comeback alongside Sam Groth at the Australian Open last year.
The pair made it to the quarter finals before being knocked out.
