“In the end I was a little bit lucky. He missed a high forehand volley he’d make probably 99 times out of 100.”
Raonic said he could barely believe he missed the overhead in the tiebreaker, a shot he would make “365 days a year.”
Hewitt struggled to overcome injuries and foot surgery last year and was restricted to only 20 matches _ winning nine of them _ in his least active season since 1998.
“I was just hoping the body would hold up for one match. I didn’t look past the first round,” Hewitt said of his expectations for Melbourne Park.
“He was more steady. He was more constant the whole match,” he said. “I was more up and down. It’s going to win the race that way.
“I guess it’s unfortunate in a way because I felt like I had the ability to win, but I just didn’t do it.”
