Bec's biggest sacrifice

In a heartfelt public plea to his ‘beautiful wife’, the Australian tennis legend begs forgiveness after her time on the sideline.

As one of Australia’s most high-profile couples – the tennis champion and the beautiful soap star – Lleyton and Bec Hewitt should lead a charmed life. With lovely homes around the globe and three gorgeous children, they seem to have it all.

But the couple have endured persistent reports about cracks in their relationship. And now, for the first time, Lleyton has admitted the strain their marriage has been under – and why he’s the one to blame.

In a shock confession, Lleyton, 32, has finally come clean, saying, “I would like to thank my wife for putting up with all the stress I put her through.”

Friends say the significance of his comments cannot be underestimated, and they hope it’s the first step in a new chapter of their married life together.
