The results are in, and it seems tennis fans from over 140 nations want to see Aussie legend Lleyton Hewitt inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame next year. American doubles star Lisa Raymond finished in second place, and Sweden’s former doubles world No. 1 Jonas Bjorkman finished in third place.
While the fan vote will not guarantee Hewitt a trip to Newport, R.I. next year, he will receive three bonus percentage points on his results from the Official Voting Group. He’s pretty much a shoe-in, though. The youngest male player ever to achieve the world No. 1 ranking, the 30-time title winner, and two-time Grand Slam champ is a first-ballot Hall of Famer by any metric. Had he not fallen to Roger Federer in seven different Grand Slams, who knows how many “Rusty” would have racked up throughout his career.
