Tennis greats launch new format for Sydney

Tennis champions Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt launched a new world first format of tennis this week which will see a special exhibition match take place at Qantas Credit Union Arena (formerly known as the Sydney Entertainment Centre) on Monday, 12 January 2015.

Tennis champions Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt launched a new world first format of tennis this week which will see a special exhibition match take place at Qantas Credit Union Arena (formerly known as the Sydney Entertainment Centre) on Monday, 12 January 2015. 

Deputy Premier and Minister for Tourism and Major Events Troy Grant said Federer and Hewitt would be the first to play ‘Fast4’ which is a best-of-five sets exhibition match with no advantage scoring, no lets, a tiebreaker to be played at three-games-all, with the first player to four games winning the set.

“The event, secured through Destination NSW, will attract significant international attention, and the new fast format will interest tennis fans around the world,” Mr Grant said.

“I cannot think of two better players to launch this new event – Roger Federer, World Number 2 and arguably the greatest player of all time, and former World Number 1 Lleyton Hewitt, one of Australia’s tennis greats.

“The pair has played some big matches over the years and will undoubtedly put on a terrific display of world-class tennis and I encourage everyone to buy tickets to the world premiere of this exciting new format,” he said.
