London - Lleyton Hewitt's 2014 Wimbledon campaign hit the buffers on Friday as the big-serving Jerzy Janowicz knocked him out of the second round in a five-set duel.

Polish 15th seed Janowicz beat the Australian 2002 Wimbledon champion 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (7/9), 4-6, 6-3 in a gritty match that began on Thursday but was suspended due to rain.

Janowicz, a beaten semi-finalist at the All England Club last year, faces Spanish 23rd seed Tommy Robredo in the third round.

Hewitt, 33, was contesting his 61st Grand Slam. He is in joint-second place with Andre Agassi and Roger Federer on the list of the most Grand Slams played in the Open Era, behind Fabrice Santoro (70).
