Wawrinka hopped to quick lead over Hewitt at 5-3 in the fifth set after almost four hours of play, when bad light suspended the deciding rubber on Sunday. Hewitt saved four set points in the fourth-set tie-break to reach to 6-7 from 3-6. Wawrinka then got a vital serve break for the fourth time in the match at 2-2 in the fifth set.
Play resumed on a shiny Monday morning as Hewitt lost a 30-00 lead and committed two double faults, as Wawrinka focused to earn four consecutive points to snatch victory before celebrating with his teammates and Roger Federer who were courtside. The experienced Swiss improved his Davis Cup record to 14-10, while Hewitt lost his 11th match out his total 48 Davis Cup singles matches.
Previously on Sunday, Swiss No. 1 Federer had equalled scores at 2-2 with a 6-2, 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 victory over Australian youngster Bernard Tomic.
