IPTL razzmatazz tempered by Hughes funeral


SINGAPORE: An emotional Lleyton Hewitt dedicated his International Premier Tennis League win to fellow Australian Phillip Hughes on Wednesday as the tragic cricketer’s funeral injected a sombre note into the glitzy event. Hewitt said he watched all of Wednesday’s memorial for Hughes, whose death in a freak accident while batting plunged Australia into mourning. Hewitt’s doubles win with Nick Kyrgios helped their team, the Singapore Slammers, to their first victory of the fast-paced new IPTL against the previously undefeated Indian Aces.
