Hewitt gives Young a schooling in Melbourne
Melbourne: Local hope Lleyton Hewitt made light work of American youngster Donald Young to ease into the third round of the Australian Open with a 7-6, 6-4, 6-1 victory on Thursday.
Young, a former junior champion in Melbourne, recovered from losing the first set tiebreak to surge 4-2 clear of Hewitt in the second.
The Australian then clicked into top gear and reeled off the next four games to take the second set before breezing through the third as his opponent struggled with unforced errors and wayward serving.
Hewitt will next face Cyprus`s Marcos Baghdatis, who advanced after upsetting Spain`s David Ferrer in five sets and beat the Australian on his way to clinching the Sydney International last week.
