Leyton Hewitt: 'I executed my gameplan perfectly'

Leyton Hewitt says that he executed his gameplan against Aleksandr Nedovyesov "perfectly" in the first round of the US Open.

Australian star Leyton Hewitt has claimed that he executed his gameplan "perfectly" when he booked a place in the second round of the US Open.

The 34-year-old, who is competing in his final tournament at Flushing Meadows before he retires in January, sealed victory over Aleksandr Nedovyesov, who was forced to retire with a shoulder injury.

"I felt like I got off to a great start," Hewitt told PA. "Came out and executed my gameplan perfectly.

"He's an awkward opponent because I wanted to be aggressive and play on my terms, but it's a bit hit-and-miss out there so you're trying to make him play that extra shot as well. If you don't get enough on it, he's capable of hitting winners. I was happy to play a really good tie-break."

Hewitt will face Bernard Tomic in the second round.
