No grand slam luck for Aussie battler

12:57 pm on 23 June 2012

The Australian tennis veteran Lleyton Hewitt's bad luck with grand slam draws continues.

After missing out to world number one Novak Djokovic at the French Open, the former number one Hewitt has once again been handed a tough draw, coming up against French number five Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Hewitt continues his shocking career run in grand slam draws in his 14th consecutive appearance at The Championships - in the past eight years, Hewitt has amazingly lost to the eventual champion in 13 majors and drawn a top-three rival before the quarter-finals on 10 occasions.
