Levy began playing tennis at age seven. His family moved to Portugal for a year and half when he was nine years old. They returned to Israel, and in 1992 the family moved to Ramat Hasharon so he could train at the Israel Tennis Centers there. That year, he was # 1 in the under-14 age group in Israel.
Told that younger Jewish players look up to him, Levy said: "It's nice to hear that. I want to represent Israel and the Jewish people the best I can. I play for myself first. But then whatever my play can do for the Jewish community is great — just great."
