Lleyton Hewitt - Personal Life

Personal Life

Hewitt is a keen supporter of Australian rules football, having played the game earlier in his career and is currently the joint No.1 ticket holder for the Adelaide Crows, alongside MP and Cabinet member Kate Ellis. He once had a close friendship with Crows star Andrew McLeod, but this broke down over much public controversy in 2005. It was not long before this that Hewitt produced a DVD titled Lleyton Hewitt: The Other Side which precipitated the falling out between him and McLeod over certain filming of Aboriginal sites.

Hewitt and Belgian tennis player Kim Clijsters started a relationship in January 2000, during the Australian Open. The two announced their engagement just before Christmas 2003, but separated in October 2004, cancelling a planned February 2005 wedding.

On 30 January 2005, shortly after losing the 2005 Australian Open final to Marat Safin, Hewitt proposed to Australian actress Bec Cartwright after they had been dating for just six weeks. They married on 21 July 2005 and have three children. Their first child, a daughter named Mia Rebecca Hewitt, was born on 29 November 2005. Their second child, a son named Cruz Lleyton Hewitt, was born on 11 December 2008. Their third child, a daughter named Ava Sydney, was born on 19 October 2010.

In late 2008, to extend his tennis career and reduce the amount of tax he would otherwise have had to pay, the couple relocated for the European and North American season to their future holiday home in the Old Fort Bay estate, in Nassau, Bahamas.

Famous quotes containing the words life and/or personal:

    The nature of women’s oppression is unique: women are oppressed as women, regardless of class or race; some women have access to significant wealth, but that wealth does not signify power; women are to be found everywhere, but own or control no appreciable territory; women live with those who oppress them, sleep with them, have their children—we are tangled, hopelessly it seems, in the gut of the machinery and way of life which is ruinous to us.
    Andrea Dworkin (b. 1946)

    If society gives up the right to impose the death penalty, then self help will appear again and personal vendettas will be around the corner.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
