He may only be seven but that doesn’t mean he can’t hold his own against a professional tennis player. Of course, it helps that the player is also his dad!
Seven-year-old Cruz Hewitt was the star player on the court when he decided to join his dad’s practice session at Melbourne Park yesterday.

Cruz not only looks the part, he is a pretty mean player – his mum Bec shared this Instagram clip of him nailing a backhand just the other day.
The Daily Mail reports that onlookers were delighted to see the super-cool youngster have a hit behind the scenes at the Australian Open. His mum and dad cheered him on as he darted around the court in his Team Australia t-shirt.
What a dude! And look out, Australia, there’s another Hewitt champ coming up!

The Australian Open will be Lleyton Hewitt’s last professional tournament before retirement. What a fantastic way to celebrate, joined on-court by your lookalike little man, and surrounded by family.
