Hewitt gets wildcard for Wimbledon
Australian Hewitt beat David Nalbandian in the 2002 final, but the 31-year-old is now ranked 176th in the world. The list also includes 34-year-old Tommy Haas of Germany, who was a Wimbledon semi-finalist in 2009.
Belgian world No.109 David Goffin, who reached the quarter-finals of his first ever French Open before losing to Roger Federer, also gets a wildcard, as does surprise French Open women's quarter-finalist Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan.
Former world No.16 Virginie Razzano, from France, is also included on the list.
Wimbledon traditionally grants entries to British players who would not otherwise qualify, and this year is no different.
British men Jamie Baker, Oliver Golding, Josh Goodall and James Ward all benefit, as do Naomi Broady, Johanna Konta, Laura Robson and Heather Watson in the women's draw.
Wimbledon takes place from June 25 to July 8.

More Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who recently announced his support to the Pro-Kabaddi League, says that sport chose him. "I did not choose kabaddi; in fact, the sport chose me. It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
