No. 2 seeded Ivo Karlovic, No. 3 Lleyton Hewitt to meet in final on Newport's grass

Second-seeded Ivo Karlovic of Croatia and third-seeded Lleyton Hewitt of Australia have advanced to the final of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.

The 6-foot-11 Karlovic ousted Samuel Groth of Australia 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday. Hewitt, who lost in the 2013 final to Nicolas Mahut, beat seventh-seeded American Jack Sock 6-1, 6-2.

The matches were played after the induction ceremonies for a five-person class for the International Tennis Hall of Fame, which was highlighted by Lindsay Davenport.

Davenport entered the hall with five-time Paralympic medalist Chantal Vandierendonck in the recent player category. Coach Nick Bollettieri, executive Jane Brown Grimes and broadcaster John Barrett were inducted from the contributor category during a 90-minute ceremony on Newport's grass courts.
