Lleyton Hewitt  will look to continue his dream run at the Australian Open when he faces Miles Raonic  in the third round on Saturday night. Hewitt advanced to the third round of the tournament when Andy Roddick had to retire from their second round match with an injury when trailing two sets to one. The former world number one and 2005 Australian Open finalist had beaten German Cedric-Marcel Stebe in four sets two days earlier.

Twenty-fifth ranked Miles Raonic setup a showdown with the hometown favourite after beating German Philipp Petzschner in four sets. The Canadian warmed up for the first major of the year by collecting the Chennai Open earlier this month and will represent Hewitt’s biggest test to date in the tournament.
