Lleyton Hewitt pulled off an upset 6-1 4-6 6-3 victory over Roger Federer to win the Brisbane International on Sunday.
The Australian made Federer pay for what was an unusually sloppy performance, with the Swiss committing 22 unforced errors in the first set alone, as he won the 29th ATP title of his illustrious career.
Hewitt took the first set in just 27 minutes thanks largely to Federer's consistent errors before the 17-time grand slam champion showed his class in the second set.
Despite missing the chance to go up a break midway through the set after Hewitt produced an athletic lunging volley, Federer didn't let him off the hook when a second opportunity presented itself after Hewitt missed an easy forehand winner in the ninth game.
Had Hewitt made the shot he would have gone up 5-4 in the set but instead Federer broke the Australian and then served out the set to love, levelling the match at one set apiece and setting up a grandstand finish.
Hewitt produced a typically committed performance in the deciding set, saving four break points to hold his serve before breaking Federer to go up 3-1 and put the Roy Emerson Trophy firmly in his grasp.
The 32-year-old kept his composure for the rest of the set to serve it out and ensure he lifted his seventh title on Australian soil and his first since winning the 2005 Sydney International.
The win sees Hewitt move above Bernard Tomic in the rankings to once again become Australia's number one male player, although Tomic could take the place back when he attempts to defend his Sydney International title this week.
