Lleyton Hewitt began his professional tennis career at the age of 17. During his early years, Hewitt went on to win a number of important events, including his first at the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) tournament in Adelaide in 1998, that gained him the title of the youngest winner. Such a successful start influenced Hewitt’s desire to pursue a tennis career, and he made the decision to stop his studies at Immanuel College. In 2000, Lleyton Hewitt won his first Grand Slam title at the United States Open Tennis Doubles Championships with his partner Max Mirnyi. Hewitt’s streak of success continued in 2001, when he won the Medibank International event, and de-crowned first Yevgeny Kafelnikov and then Pete Sampras at the US Grand Slam tournament, winning the title in the process. The year 2001 proved to be extremely profitable and successful for Lleyton Hewitt, as he won a total of six titles that year.Further, Lleyton also won the ATP Tour Finals tournament, rated as the fifth Grand Slam, in 2001 and 2002

Lleyton Hewitt continued to gather tournament wins, a total of 30 over the years, but after his aforementioned Wimbledon win in 2002, no further Grand Slam titles. Even winning the Australian title eluded him, losing to Marat Safin in the 2005 final, after also losing to Roger Federer in the US Final the previous year.  However, Hewitt does hold the record for winning at least one ATP title for ten consecutive years, which is something tennis players would really like to achieve, as it shows terrific consistency over a lengthy period in competition. However, the year 2008 was a rather difficult one for Hewitt, as  he managed to participate in both Australia Open – where he won a fourth-round match lasting 4.5 hours – as well as the Beijing Olympics, yet he didn’t secure any tournament wins because of medical issues, Hewitt’s first year since 1997 that that had happened. However, he did pass the 500-wins mark, only the third player to achieve this milestone in the open era.

However, Hewitt’s injuries and lesser level of performances didn’t prevent him from continuing his career. He has consistently played for Australia in the Davis Cup, the prestigious international teams event, winning in 1999 and 2003. In 2014, Hewitt secured his 600th win, again only the third tennis player to achieve this goal, and in 2015 he competed at the Australian Open Grand Slam tournament for the 19th consecutive year.

Throughout his career, Lleyton Hewitt has played against some of the most notable figures in tennis, such as Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick and Andy Murray, so Lleyton is certainly a prominent figure in the history of Australian tennis in recent years, and recognised around the tennis world as a genuine ‘Aussie battler’. Among his many awards and achievements, Lleyton Hewitt has been awarded ATP Player of the Year, Most Popular South Australian, as well as Vogue Australia Sportsman of the Year titles. Hewitt’s most recent achievement is the Davis Cup Commitment Award. In addition, Lleyton Hewitt has been placed at #34 on the list of 40 greatest tennis players since 1965 by the Tennis magazine.

In his personal life, Lleyton Hewitt has been married to actress Bec Cartwright since 2005, and they have three children.

Quotes

#Quote
1I'm fortunate: I can play as long as I want to play. There's no coach or trainer who is going to say to me that I'm dropped or sacked, it's time to move on. I can play as long as I want to play.
2I'd much rather win in three or four sets than go the distance all the time; I seem to put everyone through the wringer quite a bit.
3I'm not to eager to play tennis in my spare time. I'm more interested in doing gym work and stuff like that. We have a lot of schools and courts around where I live, so if I really want to play, I don't need to go too far.
4Even when I was No. 1 in the world, I was taking it one match at a time. I never was a player to look too far ahead, the way draws can pan out.
5When I was a kid in Adelaide, I dreamed of becoming No. 1 in the world, winning a grand slam and the Davis Cup for Australia.
6There are people who love you and people who hate you, but for me, more so, people only think they know me by how I act or perform on a tennis court.
7I liked Pat Cash, and I loved Mats Wilander. I went to the Australian Open with my parents, and I used to watch Wilander being cheered on by the Swedish fans, and with his game style being like mine, I drew comparisons with him.
8I've probably put up with more criticism than a lot of people out there. At the end of the day, you block out everything, especially with your personal life.
9I was lucky enough to win the Davis Cup in my first year in 1999. I won my first slam at the U.S. Open in 2001 and became world No. 1 later that year. By the age of 20, I'd done it all.
10When I go out to play, I still believe I'm as good as anyone out there. I don't have to prove anyone wrong. I know what I've done and how well I can play.
11I have sometimes played my best Davis Cup matches away from home when you stay in the moment a bit more. But it is tough when half the crowd are spitting on you.
12Tennis players go into a press conference, and almost every one of them is the same. We do very little differently on a day-to-day basis.
13Oh, I get pretty fired up on the court. I try to play with a lot of emotion, especially when I'm playing in front of a large crowd. I want to go out and do my best, and to do that, I have to play with the most energy possible.
14My video game character is a bit better looking than me, actually. I don't think he has to worry about his hair getting messed up.
15Matches are won and lost so many times in the locker room.
16I'm not a guy who needs to read motivation books.
17You always love playing in finals at any tournament. The grand slams and stuff like that are obviously the priorities but any titles go on your record.
18I'm more in that Rafa Nadal high-energy high-octane mold out there. I wear that emotion on the court. That's how I play my best tennis. People either like that or not. And I can't change that: that's who I am on a tennis court.
19I don't have too much spare time, but I try to play games as much as possible. I played a little growing up, but I never played any tennis games before.
20I'm one injury away from hanging up the racket at any time.
21I am two different people. What you see on the court is just natural for me. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I have always said 'C'mon' purely to fire myself up. Off the court, I am a lot shyer. I stick to my team and my family and people I trust.
