Lleyton Hewitt is getting fed up with meeting Roger Federer in the major events. For the third time in four grand slams this year, Hewitt was beaten by the Swiss.

In the Australian Open it was the fourth round, at Wimbledon it was the quarter-final and at the US Open it was in the final as he went down 6-0 7-6 6-0.

"I've lost to Roger in three out of the four majors," said Hewitt, who was appearing in his first grand slam final since he won Wimbledon in 2002.

"When he's playing like he did, especially in the first set, there's very little you can do out there. He returned extremely well and it was hard to get any cheap points off him," the Australian told reporters.

"You know, who knows? If I could have met him a little bit later in the Aussie and at Wimbledon, then who knows, but he's the stand-out (player) this year."
