Originally published on 02/01/16 00:00
Gone but not forgotten, Lleyton Hewitt, Jarkko Nieminen and Flavia Pennetta all said their goodbyes, with Nieminen and Pennetta bringing the curtain down on their careers in Stockholm and Singapore respectively.
Although Hewitt played his last matches on tour outside his native Australia during what became a farewell tour in 2015, ‘Rusty’ will officially hang up his rackets after his final Australian Open campaign in Melbourne in January.
