Hewitt pumped up for Djokovic dogfight

6:31 am on 28 June 2010

The former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt has promised to give third seed Novak Djokovic a run for his money in their last 16 clash tonight.

Djokovic will be expecting nothing less from a grasscourt warrior who has more victories on turf than any other active player in the sport -- Roger Federer included.

Their tussle, which will be only their fifth career meeting, is the pick of the men's fourth-round action as the tournament swings towards its climax and it looks a hard one to call.

Hewitt now has 101 career wins on grass and says although Djokovic is a step up the way he's been playing he's confident he can win.
