Hewitt reiterates he’s done with Octagon

Lleyton Hewitt re-confirmed on Sunday that he had severed ties with his longtime management company, Octagon and his agent, Tom Ross. He's hired Cricket Australia commercial affairs manager Rob Aivatoglou to take on management duties.
Hewitt denied a Herald Sun report that said Octagon will still be involved. "There’s been no change," Hewitt told TennisReporters.net and The LA Times. "It’s pretty much what I said the other day. Rob will handle the day-to-day stuff and be responsible for any new deals. If someone else brings me a deal, Rob and my dad [Glynn] will look at it. Octagon has been calling my dad daily and talking to him, but things are the same."
Hewitt – who defeated Robby Ginepri 6-2, 7-6 on Sunday – said he hired Aivatoglou because he wanted more control and for his management to be "more one-on-one based and that suits my personality better. In the long run, it will be better for me on and off court."
