Guess who’s back! Lleyton Hewitt set to hit the court with Alex de Minaur

Aussie tennis star Lleyton Hewitt is once again coming out of retirement.

The 37-year-old will take to the court to play doubles with Australian teen Alex de Minaur at the ATP Estoril clay-court tournament in Portugal.

Tournament organisers made the announcement on social media overnight.


“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.
