Lleyton Hewitt

Born February 24, 1981 in Adelaide, South Australia, Hewitt is winner of the 2001 US Open and 2002 Wimbledon men's singles titles. In stunning upset, he lost on his own home turf to Russian champ Marat Safin at the Australian Open in 2005.

Growing up in a sports-minded household with father, Australian rules footballer, Glynn Hewitt, he took the tennis world by storm at an early age showing his now signature fierce competitiveness by becoming the youngest winner of an Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) tournament when he won the 1998 Adelaide Invitational. From there he battled his way up the world rankings and won his first Grand Slam tournament at the U.S. Open in 2001, and followed up the next year with a Wimbledon win in 2002.

In 2004, howeer, he became the tennis player who lost in each Grand Slam to the eventual champion - suffering his first defeat to Roger Federer In the Australian Open; to Argentine Gastón Gaudio in French Open; and to Roger Federer again at Wimbledon and at the U.S. Open.

Off the court, Hewitt has been romantically linked to Belgian tennis player Kim Clijsters, but following his loss at the 2005 Australian Open reportedly asked then current girlfriend, actress Bec Cartwright, to tie the knot.

The couple were later married in a celebrity 'love match' in July at the Sydney Opera House.

Most recently, the couple celebrated with a baby announcement when Bec Cartwright gave birth to their first child, a daughter, in late November 2005.
