Tennis-Hewitt too slick for Dimitrov on grass
LONDON, June 12
LONDON, June 12 (Reuters) - Former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt gave Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov a grasscourt masterclass in a second-round victory at the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old Australian needed little more than an hour to win 6-4 6-3 as 10th seed Dimitrov struggled to cope with his formidable grasscourt skills.
Dimitrov, 22, who was watched by girlfriend Maria Sharapova during his first-round match on Tuesday, never got close to Hewitt's serve and did not manufacture a single break point.
Hewitt, bidding for a fifth title at the traditional Wimbledon warm-up event, will face 2010 champion Sam Querrey in the third round.
Top seed Andy Murray was scheduled to play his first grasscourt match since winning Olympic gold at Wimbledon last year later on Wednesday, although rain threatened to disrupt the schedule again.
