Hewitt beats Murray in Kooyong

11:58 am on 11 January 2014

Battle-hardened Lleyton Hewitt has continued on his winning way, putting world tennis number four Andy Murray to the sword in their exhibition match at Melbourne's Kooyong Classic.

Fresh from taking out the Brisbane International over Roger Federer, Hewitt gave an underdone Murray a proper workout with a 7-6 7-6 victory.

The Scotsman, who was runner-up to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open last year, has only played one tournament since undergoing back surgery in September.
