Former champion Hewitt to conquer Davis Cup team-mate at US Open

Former champion Hewitt to conquer Davis Cup team-mate at US Open

The veteran Australian, who is making his final appearance in New York, can spice up your Thursday four-fold

5/2 – Lleyton Hewitt to beat Bernard Tomic

Three semi-finals, one final and the championship title in 2001 – this tournament has been kind to Lleyton Hewitt.

And at his last-ever US Open, the 34-year-old Australian faces compatriot Bernard Tomic.

For all his talent and flair, Tomic boasts a very poor record at the year’s final major, winning just four matches in total.

The 22-year-old’s laboured first-round win against the lowly-ranked Damir Dzumhur did little to dispel any doubters, while Hewitt demonstrated excellent fitness levels by outlasting Aleksandr Nedovyesov.

Hewitt will use his experience and the backing of the lively Flushing Meadows crowd to score another legendary win here.

5/6 – Nicolas Mahut to beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez

Nicolas Mahut may be one of the few serve-and-volley players on tour, but his success in the Grand Slams this year has proven he is still be a major threat.

The attacking Frenchman reached the round of 32 in Paris and the round of 64 in Wimbledon before being defeated by Gilles Simon and Tomas Berdych respectively.

His clinical win over Sam Querrey, meanwhile, sent out a strong message to second-round opponent Garcia Lopez, a player who has lost all three of his previous meetings with Mahut.

Garcia-Lopez is far more comfortable on clay and looks unlikely to add to his tally of just three US Open match wins.

1/3 – Philipp Kohlschreiber to beat Lukas Rosol

Lukas Rosol is best-known for producing one of the biggest shocks in tennis history when knocking out Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon in 2012 and the big Czech will have to rely on a repeat performance to get past Kohlschreiber.

It was, coincidentally, the German who ended Rosol’s fairytale run at SW19 three years ago and, with two further wins against the Czech since, he will be confident ahead of their second-round clash.

Rosol has lost eight of his last 12 matches – that record will extend to nine in 13 on Thursday.

1/3 – Thomaz Bellucci to beat Yoshihito Nishioka

One of the most talented and inconsistent performers on tour, Thomaz Bellucci has finally hit a solid run of form this season.

The Brazilian has won a title in Geneva, gone deep in the Rome and Madrid Masters 1000 events and won 10 of his last 16 matches.

His second-round opponent, Yoshihito Nishioka has only ever reached the main draw of a Grand Slam twice, with both outings resulting in thrashings at the hands of Tomas Berdych and Paolo Lorenzi.

Bellucci will be expecting a comfortable victory and his added consistency and mental concentration will ensure that a huge upset does not occur here.
