Newport, Rhode Island: Australia's Lleyton Hewitt took advantage of his second chances to win a title on his third attempt at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.
Playing in his third consecutive final on Newport's grass courts, Hewitt, the No. 3 seed, beat second-seeded Ivo Karlovic of Croatia 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (3) on Sunday.
"Obviously relief to have finally won here," Hewitt said. "It's an important tournament, not a Grand Slam by no means, but the last three years I've come here and put myself on the line and come awfully close the last two years. It was nice to get rewarded today."
