Hewitt close to reclaiming Aussie men's top tennis ranking

AUSSIE veteran Lleyton Hewitt is a couple of wins away from again becoming the country's highest-ranked male player.

The 32-year-old, beaten in the semi-finals at Queens last week by Croatian Marin Cilic, has jumped to No.70.

Hewitt is now just behind our top two men, Bernard Tomic (60) and Marinko Matosevic (66).
