Hewitt hoping for another title win at Queens in London

FOUR-time Queens champion Lleyton Hewitt got his grass-court campaign off to the best possible start by winning his first round clash at the London event.

Hewitt fought back from a set down to beat American veteran Michael Russell 4-6 6-1 6-3.

The result ended a three-match losing streak for the 32-year-old Australian, stretching back to the Miami Masters in March.

Hewitt is looking to build form and gain crucial match practice ahead of Wimbledon, which begins in a fortnight.

Hewitt, the 2002 Wimbledon champion, was joined in the second round by compatriot Marinko Matosevic, who scored a 7-5 6-2 win over Denmark's Frederik Nielsen.
