Hewitt loses to Lopez, falls short of Federer's record of match wins on grass

Lleyton Hewitt remains one victory short of Roger Federer's record of 122 match wins on grass after being beaten 6-3, 6-4 by Feliciano Lopez in the second round of the Queen's Club grass-court tournament on Wednesday.

Hewitt, a four-time champion at Queen's, was broken once in each set and failed to earn a single break point against the 10th-seeded Spaniard. It's the first time the Australian has lost to Lopez in their five meetings.

Hewitt won Queen's in 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2006, while Lopez's best showing is a semifinal finish in 2010.

The 33-year-old Hewitt had been bidding to become the first player to win Queen's five times. He shares the record of four titles with Andy Roddick.
