Lleyton Hewitt defeats Ivo Karlovic for Hall of Fame title

Australian Lleyton Hewitt won in his third time in the final match at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, beating second-seeded Ivo Karlovic of Croatia 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (3) on Sunday.

The 33-year old Hewitt captured his 30th career ATP title in a match that lasted 2 hours, 30 minutes.

Like last year, when he had a chance to serve out the match for the title, Hewitt was broken in the second set and then lost to Nicolas Mahut of France.

This time, the third-seeded Hewitt closed it out on serve in the tiebreaker when Karlovic hit a forehand return long.

American John Isner beat Hewitt in the 2012 final.
