Lleyton Hewitt Bio and Stats

Gritty Australian baseliner Lleyton Hewitt made an immediate impact on the ATP when he won his hometown tournament in Adelaide in 1998 to become the youngest title winner (16 years, 10 months) since Michael Chang in 1988 and, at No. 550, the lowest-ranked winner in ATP history. A former Aussie Rules football player, Hewitt was widely regarded as one of the best returners of his era and held the world No. 1 ranking in successive years before the rise of Roger Federer. Hewitt partnered Max Mirnyi to collect his first Grand Slam doubles title at the 2000 U.S. Open to become the youngest men (at 19 years, 6 months) to win a Slam doubles title in the Open era. The fiery, fist-pumping Hewitt had a breakthrough season in 2001 as he posted an 80-18 record and won six titles, including his first Grand Slam title at the U.S. Open. Hewitt beat Andy Roddick in the quarterfinals, Yevgeny Kafelnikov in the semifinals and swept Pete Sampras in the final to win the Open. Hewitt beat Sebastien Grosjean in the Tennis Masters Cup final in Sydney to clinch the year-end No. 1 ranking, becoming the youngest man (20 years, 8 months) and first Australian to finish No. 1 in the history of the ATP rankings. In 2002, Hewitt beat David Nalbandian to win Wimbledon. He won five titles in 2002 when he became only the fourth player to rank No. 1 for every week during year; Hewitt became the seventh man to finish No. 1 for at least two straight years. In June, 2010, Hewitt beat Roger Federer to snap a 15-match losing streak against the Swiss and win his 28th career title on the grass courts of Halle. Hip, foot and toe surgeries hampered Hewitt in recent years. He advanced to the 2013 Newport final, falling to Nicolas Mahut in three sets. The 32-year-old Aussie upset Roger Federer in the Brisbane final in January, 2014 to collect his 29th career title—and first since he beat Federer in the 2010 Halle final. He was briefly engaged to former No. 1 Kim Clijsters. Hewitt married Australian actress Bec Cartwright on July 21, 2005 in Sydney. The couple has three children: Daughters Mia and Ava and son Cruz.
