Hewitt to play doubles at Melbourne Park


//

Lleyton Hewitt will return to the men's doubles at this year's Australian Open, with the Australian Davis Cup captain looking to improve on last year's quarter-final finish.

The 37-year-old will hit the court this year with John Patrick-Smith after crashing out in the last 16 with Davis Cup teammate Sam Groth in 2018.

Hewitt and Patrick-Smith will take on New Zealander Marcus Daniells and Dutchman Wesley Koolhof in the first round.

Hewitt competed at the Brisbane International with Alex de Minaur on a wildcard and that decision added to speculation the former world No.1 would also contest the doubles for Australia in their Davis Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina in Adelaide in February.

Hewitt is the world No.144 ranked player in doubles with a 6-7 win-loss record for 2018 despite walking away from full-time tennis after the 2016 Australian Open.
