Paris - Former world No 1 and two-time Grand Slam title winner Lleyton
Hewitt will come out of retirement again to play doubles at the
Estoril clay court tournament, organisers said on Wednesday.
Hewitt, 37, will play doubles with Australian compatriot Alex de Minaur, who is 18 years his junior.
"We have a wild card, we have ex-number 1 Lleyton Hewitt... who will
break his 'retirement' to play at the Estoril Open alongside countryman
Alex de Minaur," organisers tweeted.
Hewitt, who won the 2001 US Open and 2002 Wimbledon titles, retired
in 2016 but played doubles this year in Brisbane and at the Australian
Open, where he made the quarter-finals with Sam Groth, before returning
to his full-time occupation of Davis Cup coach.
