WATCH: US tennis star proves sportsmanship is still alive

A BOUT of acute sportsmanship has broken out at the Hopman Cup in Perth, left Lleyton Hewitt bowled over by an incredible gesture from American rival Jack Sock in their tennis clash on Tuesday night.

The soon-to-be-retiring Australian champion, trailing by a set and down 4-5 in the second, was serving against Sock when his first service was called out by the linesman.

Incredibly, Sock immediately signalled to the chair umpire, saying to Hewitt with a smile: "That was in if you want to challenge it."
