What does this experience mean to him?
The final double’s match of his career
After a successful career in Tennis, Sam Groth is getting ready for his final double’s game at the Australian Open in Melbourne, his hometown. Sam Groth is well known for hitting the fastest serve on record at 263km/h in 2012 at the ATP challenger in Busan. The Australian hit his highest ranking in doubles at No.24 in 2015 which makes this match the perfect setting for his final game.

There is no better partner to share this final experience with than retired tennis player, former World no.1 and his good friend Lleyton Hewitt. As fate would have it, Sam Groth was Lleyton Glynn Hewitts double’s partner at his own final match before he himself retired in 2016, and so out of a ironic conversation between the two, the joke became reality as Sam explains in his Interview: “ I wanted to play with an Australian, and I wanted to make it something special for me. He is a good friend of mine and we have a long history together”.

At home in Melbourne Sam Groth will play his last match today. We asked him what makes this last game so special to him. Watch the full interview to find out!
