Day six: Hewett clinches fourth singles title at Cajun Classic

Alfie Hewett clinched his second victory over world No.1 Tokito Oda of Japan in successive weekends as he wrapped up his fourth Cajun Classic men’s singles title 6-4, 6-4 on Sunday in Baton Rouge.

World No.2 Hewett earned the only service hold of the first set in the very last game of the set and then made it six games in a row as he raced into a 4-0 second set lead. However, that’s where Hewett’s progress was temporarily halted as 2023 champion Oda reeled off the next four games to raise prospects of a deciding set.

But Hewett, who also beat Oda a week ago in the Georgia Open final, was having none of it, and forehand and backhand down the line winners on successive points fired him back into a 5-4 lead as he broke Oda to love and three errors off the Japanese racket subsequently set Hewett up with two match points.

The second seed needed no further opportunities, completing victory with a sweetly struck cross court backhand winner to add to his 2017, 2018 and 2022 titles in Baton Rouge.

After dethroning Oda to become a nine-time Super Series singles champion, Hewett will now eat into the 476 point advantage that the Japanese player had at the top of the world rankings at the start of the Cajun Classic.
