Lleyton Hewitt says he has no plans to retire at the end of the 2014 season. Speaking to reporters while promoting the Brisbane International, the 32-year-old Aussie reportedly laughed when asked if January's Australian Open would be his last.

The former No. 1 is currently ranked No. 60 but reached the fourth round of the U.S. Open, the final of Newport, and the semifinals of Atlanta and Queens in 2013. At the Australian Open, Hewitt lost to Janko Tipsarevic in the first round.

“[The Australian Open] won’t be the last. I can’t see myself finishing at the end of the year at the European indoor tournaments. I am just going out there and enjoying it,” Hewitt said.
