莱顿·休伊特1981年2月24日出生在澳大利亚阿德莱德市,他母亲是前无挡板篮球冠军,父亲在澳大利亚足球联赛踢球,他的妹妹已经是澳大利亚她那个年龄段排名第一的网球小选手。莱顿在她这个年龄的时候可没有这么好的成绩。

The Hewitt's have a grass court[网球场] at their home. This was where young Lleyton began his tennis career. When Lleyton showed an unusual ability for a 4-year-old and he was hitting balls consistently over the net, his parents decided it was time to find him a coach.
  
“Rather than get into bad habits, it was best he learnt how to hit the ball correctly.” says his father. Two years later, they got Peter Smith as his coach.

At the age of five, when most children that age are playing hide and seek or getting into all sorts of trouble, Lleyton and his family would make the trip to Melbourne for the Australian Open. Lleyton would sit for up to 12 hours a day watching players practice.

By the time Lleyton was eight, he was winning “under-10 games” and always won a year ahead of his age. A professional career was looking very promising[有前途的]. Lleyton officially[正式的] turned pro in 1997.
