Career

Among his many achievements, Lleytown Hewitt holds the honor of becoming the youngest tennis player to be ranked No. 1 in the world at age 20.

He saw his first Grand Slam success in the 2000 US Open men's doubles competition, also reaching the Wimbledon mixed doubles final earlier that year. With those excellent results under his belt, he became the first teenager to land a place at Tennis Masters Cup.

The following season, he continued his rise through the rankings, winning at the 2001 US Open and the Wimbledon crown the following year. He also claimed the Tennis Masters Cup in both 2001 and 2002.
