By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - Lleyton Hewitt of Australia held on to win his
first tournament in two years Sunday with a 6-2, 7-5 victory over
Wayne Odesnik of the United States in the U.S. Men's Clay Court
Championships.
Hewitt won his 498th career match and moved closer to joining
Roger Federer and Carlos Moya as the only active players with 500
or more victories. Hewitt also won his first clay court tournament
since he took the Delray Beach tournament in 1999.
Hewitt ranks 35th on the career victories list.
Hewitt sailed to a 3-0 lead in the second set without much
opposition from Odesnik, making his first ATP final. Odesnik had at
least one service break in each of his 10 service games.
