Milos Raonic dropped his opening match at the AAMI Classic in Melbourne, Australia, on Wednesday, falling to Australia's Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 1-6, 7-6(4) at the exhibition tournament.

The native of Thornhill, Ont, held a 3-0 lead in the third-set tiebreaker before Hewitt came back strong to take the match. The former world No. 1 also beat Raonic in the third round of the Australian Open one year ago.

Raonic still has two matches to play at the Australian Open tune-up, which features an eight-man field and uses a promotion/relegation format. The 22-year-old will take on Croatian Ivan Dodig on Thursday.
