Australia's Lleyton Hewitt returns against Poland's Jerzy Janowicz during their men's singles second round match on day five of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, on June 27, 2014 - by Andrew Yates

Polish 15th seed Janowicz beat the Australian 2002 Wimbledon champion 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (7/9), 4-6, 6-3 in a gritty match that began on Thursday but was suspended due to rain.

Janowicz, a beaten semi-finalist at the All England Club last year, faces Spanish 23rd seed Tommy Robredo in the third round.

Hewitt, 33, was contesting his 61st Grand Slam. He is in joint-second place with Andre Agassi and Roger Federer on the list of the most Grand Slams played in the Open Era, behind Fabrice Santoro (70).
