“Lleyton’s Last Stand” as some Australian media have billed it came Thursday in the second round where Hewitt lost to David Ferrer, 6-2, 6-4, 6-4, in a gritty contest that the numbers alone don’t do justice. It included some dramatic tennis, a few expletives — including a verbal volley Hewitt had with the chair umpire — and was capped off by an emotional send-off on Rod Laver Arena.
