WASHINGTON - Two-time Grand Slam winner Lleyton Hewitt was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame class of 2021 on Wednesday.

The Australian won Grand Slam singles titles at the US Open in 2001 and Wimbledon in 2002, becoming the youngest ever player to be ranked No 1 in the ATP rankings.

"I am hugely honoured to be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame," said Hewitt.

"When you are competing, you're so focused on training and your results that week or that year, you don't really look ahead to something like this. But when that is all compiled up and deemed deserving of becoming a Hall of Famer, it's just the ultimate recognition for a player, and I'm so honored."
