Lleyton Hewitt’s son, Cruz, wins Australian junior tennis title

Cruz Hewitt, son of former tennis world No. 1 Lleyton, is proving he’s a chip off the old block after winning an Australian Under-12s clay court tournament.

The 12-year-old cruised to victory without dropping a set, according to the Australian Associated Press, and even went on to win the Under-12s doubles title alongside Asher Brownrigg.

“So proud to take home the title in the Claycourt Nationals,” he wrote on Instagram. “Had a great week in Canberra.”

While Cruz is no doubt showing plenty of potential, he still has a long way to go to reach the high standards set by his father, a two-time grand slam champion.

On top of his victories at Wimbledon and the US Open, Lleyton became the youngest male player to reach world No. 1 in the ATP era in November 2001. He also won the Tour Finals twice and the US Open men’s doubles title in 2000.

Lleyton added: “National Claycourt Champ Cruz Hewitt.”
