Hewitt tried to choke really hard, just like last year..

Anyway, a win is a win, well done for the title Lleyton! Third time lucky.

Watched the set and half and then came back at 3rd set tiebreak. Rusty was much in control and deserved this win! Very happy for him considering its his 2nd in this year :D

Hewitt did everything that he could to choke again. Congrats to him on the title, but I'd be willing to venture that this is his last championship on the main circuit.

Yes it is, to old, great career, but this was only chance winning 250 MM event vs no field on surface just few people can play on this days-i mean Newport being really old school grass-far different to Wimbledon and he needed opponent who can´t do a shit on return and even his serve wasn ´t so great - DF´s - back problems most likely and so on

Watching World Cup so haven't really seen this but happy for Hewitt! Glad he's got his 30th title, and definitely deserved one in Newport.

Good job after that choke in the second. One more good run and he could be seeded at USO. Karlovic didn't look 100% physically, hope he's okay for Bogota.

:worship: great win and finally a win against Ivo on grass. 30th title to boot, second in the year :)

as for the Doctor, I'm not too mad, he got a good points haul and he could defend Bogota yet.

Congrats Lleyton for this 30th title :)

Match wasn't good, but in the most important moments Hewitt was better than Ivo, who also achieved a good result here :)

And celebrate title with kids were cute :) Now waiting for title in doubles ;)

Yes Lleyton!

Glad Karlovic didn't worm his way out of this one. Well done to Hewitt for recovering from the second set choke to close it out in the end.

Onya Rusty mate. He's only won consecutive matches at two tournaments this year and he's won them both. 4th active player to win 30+ titles. Farken Strayyyyaaa..

Brilliant result for tennis. Hewitt might not have been a truly great player but he is a truly great competitor and his passion for the game remains undimmed.

8 grass courts titles at 5 different events. (1 Wimbledon, 4 Queens, 1 Halle, 1 Den Bosch and 1 Newport)

Didn't catch much of the third set for obvious reasons but glad Hewitt got it done. Losing another final after having match point and serving for the championship would've been brutal. A hard fought win like this has been needed for a while.

30 is a good number to end on, if he decides to call it a day soon.
