LLEYTON Hewitt proposed to soap star girlfriend Bec Cartwright after losing the Australian Open last night in a spirited game against Russian Marat Safin.

The couple got engaged soon after the match ended at Melbourne Park, Channel 7 reported today.
"The big news down here is the engagement of Lleyton Hewitt and Bec Cartwright just after the match last night," Seven said.

Hewitt apparently got down on bended knee in a quiet corner before heading into a private party celebrating the end of the competition.

The station reported that Home and Away star Cartwright had had no advance warning, but Hewitt was prepared with a "big diamond".

The 23-year-old tennis player had apparently hoped to propose after winning the match, but instead lost against the fourth-seeded Russian 1-6 6-3 6-4 6-4.

He and Cartwright had their first public outing as a couple in early December and she has sat courtside throughout his Australian Open matches.

Hewitt separated from his former fiance, Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters, late last year following a four-year romance.

And..... you know this has internationally humiliated Kimmy how?

For normal human beings: if you dump or are dumped after 5 years, and the partner is able to not just get over you, but fall in love, and get engaged in 2 months, it indicates that the previous relationship might not have had any depth at all.
Hence.

What depth can a four year relationship that spanned the end of their chidhoods actually have? I dont think it's really that healthy to get hitched to your first and only partner. Live a little, folks.

I bet he had it all planned out that he was going to propose on court after winning.

Oh yeah that would be an even bigger media spectacle and the ultimate
"F--k you" to Kim. :devil: Honestly I think Lleyton's been hell bent on getting married since 2003. When he was asked what's the best thing that you've accomplished in your career, he said it would have to be getting engaged to Kim. :o He bought a house for him and Kim to live in and now it must be lonely in such an empty abode. So his best footy mate moves in to keep him company. Lleyton simply does not like being alone. And when Kim dumped him he was shocked, bought a Ferrari and ran into the arms of the nearest willing and available starlet.
This smells like a rebound. I hope he's not doing this for the wrong reasons, but I doubt it.

So true... the main reason why, for example, Roger and Mirka are such a "dream"couple is because she's dedicated her life to his and his career... This is a one-man-show - these guys don't need a leading lady but a supporting extra.

Lol, very interesting theory. Who knows it's probably true. Seriously though, that's what I thought too when I realized this was actually true. My feeling was bad enough he asks but she compounds the insanity by actually saying YES? I mean he's not the only one who's fresh off a relationship. True she wasn't engaged, but she was with her ex for four years and since she's only 21 now, that means she was with him since she was 17. Meanwhile Lleyton was with Kim when he was 18. Seems to me both Lleyton and Bec missed the concept of "casually dating". It's like they barely took a breath in between their break-ups. Then again maybe the theories that something was going before their respective break-ups is true and that would somehow explain it a little better.

This may be one of those things that just feels right. I suppose its hard to judge unless you know exactly how both parties feel. Just because it may not be the way you would do things doesn't make it wrong.

yeah, kim and lleyton also felt it was the right thing to do, and even after 4 years they couldn't sustain it. so i think most people are not disputing that these two are in love, but given that the odds of pulling a engaged-after-2-months affair without separation are so low, why hurry, is what most people are wondering

I certainly am not questioning whether they're in love. And I think it's possible that it'll last, but the circumstances surrounding the engagement make me wonder why the rush to propose? :confused: They probably can commisserate with each other after going through a breakup with their respective partners and have become very close as a result of that.
But why not take the time to decompress, reflect and date again before jumping into a marriage. It's good to move on with life, but some people take that to mean they need to find a replacement for their ex.
I hope it's not because Lleyton is scared of being alone. Or that he's insecure that she'll take up with someone else if he doesn't propose.
As for Bec, why wouldn't she want to marry him? This means she can kick up her heels and retire, occasionally coming out of retirement to dabble in acting and dancing.

My theory is that Lleyton is needy, emotionally dependent and hates being alone. He's introverted and not the type of guy who makes friends easily so he has a close-knit entourage that flies with him to tournaments. He's been with Kim since he was 18. I don't think he's a pro at casual dating. He's just not swinger material. He always struck me as somewhat insecure in his way with women, the polar opposite of Mark Philippoussis and Pat Rafter. Jim Courier didn't exactly help Lley's ego after one match asking him if his new Ferrari helped pull in Bec :p And when Courier asked him to rate how he played and Lley answered a 2 on a scale of 1-10, Courier answered...don't talk about your looks :haha: It's time to seek professional help and get therapy Lleyton.

Of course he can do what he wants. But there is a whole industry made out of this kind of gossip. People are voyeuristic by nature and the private lives of the rich and famous are cannon fodder unfortunately. It's the price they pay for being rich and famous. The price of my privacy is struggling to make ends meet week to week. We all have our burdens.

its not personal if they announced it..and besides..its an engagement we are talking about...pretty public stuff if you ask me....and it is kinda quick if its true....she seems really young...very pretty..

Well of course they're going to announce it, they're not going to live under a rock all their life. But what he decides to do with his personal life concerns himself only. Who the hell are some people to say what he should do or not in his life?

Is it too quick? Probably... But then again: you live, you learn. You try, you learn. You loooooooose, you learn.

Well of course Kim broke up with him. Think, why on Earth would Kim break up with Llyeton after she has devoted so much time and energy into a relationship. Theres only one reason: She walked in on them having sex. :devil:

Yep, but Kim might have ended it after learning of Bec, it would certainly make some sense. I dunno I'm just speculating.

Exactly. Obviously its not part of his personal life if he decides to come out and announce the engagement while flouncing his new toy around The Australian Open grounds. There is nothing wrong with gossip, I find it healthy. :)

Gossiping is fun, but my point wasn't about gossiping; it's about people who analyse Hewitt and make a judgement on his decisions.

All I have to say is that I feel bad for Bec Cartwright. I mean, Lleyton is only using her to get back at Kim. Did anyone read Lleyton's interview from after his match against Roddick? He brought up the subject of women's tennis just so that he could say that he wasn't interested in it anymore. The annoying thing is that he said it ironically to sort of rub it in Clijsters' face that she is the reason for his lack of interseted in women's tennis these days. I think that Lleyton acted immaturelly and rudely.
Here is the part of the interview I'm talking about:
Q. How will you relax?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I don't know. I won't be watching the women's final, that's for sure.
Q. Why?
LLEYTON HEWITT: I'm not into women's tennis any more (smiling).

Of course he can do what he wants. But there is a whole industry made out of this kind of gossip. People are voyeuristic by nature and the private lives of the rich and famous are cannon fodder unfortunately. It's the price they pay for being rich and famous. The price of my privacy is struggling to make ends meet week to week. We all have our burdens.

Why else would he do it? No amount of love can make you propose to someone after such a short amount of time. Think about it; according to people on this board, he was meant to marry Kim this coming Saturday, and he was in the Aus Open final [which he then lost]. Everything probably seems a bit surreal for him at the moment

Notice Lleyton and Kim broke up after she had a long period off. same thing happened to my cousin and her fiancee. In my cousin case, her and her fiancee been together for 3 yeras, they met on a plane while traveling home from college. They manage to spend all vacations together and at least 1 month and a half doing the summers. He graduated last year and she still had another year to go, so he decided to move in with her while she finish school. It took a little over 6 months for them to break up. She said she did not know him at all, and he gets on her nerves. I asked her couldn't she tell after 3 years that he had those character flaws that obviously drives her crazy. She said no, she did not pick up on them until they where together for 4 consecutive months. Maybe that's what happen to Lleyton and Kim.

Yes. Life does sometimes happen this way. Sometimes there is a proposal on the second date and the marriage lasts a lifetime. Sometimes people date for 10 years and break up the marriage after a year. I've known both of these things to happen.

I think Lleyton has looke happy, relaxed, and for him, incredibly outgoing, these last two months. I wish him all the happiness in the world. I think Bec has a great guy. I hope she doesn't break his heart, but if she does.... oh well, as someone else said.... you live, you love, you lose, you learn. Lots and lots of people break up and regain happiness easily and quikly. Real life isn't Wuthering Heights.... thank god.

Obviously Lleyton is compensating his immaturity and characterial uncertainty by looking for a strong commitment. He's the eternal teenager who has spent his whole existence on tennis courts. He has an inferiority complex. He wants to be loved. He's an amazing sportsman but he's still so very much a little boy. Those suffocating parents of his... I heard they're even there at trainings. :yawn:

Bec, Lleyton engagement official

AGENTS for tennis ace Lleyton Hewitt and soap star Bec Cartwright have confirmed the couple's engagement.

Hewitt went down on one knee following his defeat in the Australian Open final last night.
Home and Away star Cartwright had cheered her boyfriend on during the match.

The couple's agents confirmed Hewitt popped the question after the loss to Russian Marat Safin.

"Stephen Harmon from Encompass Management and Justine Cohen from Octagon confirmed ... Lleyton Hewitt and Bec Cartwright's engagement following the Australian Open finals," a statement said.

"Lleyton and Bec met five years ago at a Starlight Foundation charity tennis day and rekindled their relationship late last year.

"The couple were instantly committed to each other and their close connection has been well documented in the media through their public acknowledgement and mutual support.

"Bec proudly revealed the ring presented to her by Lleyton ... to overjoyed family and friends at the post tennis final celebrations."

Hewitt reportedly got down on bended knee in a quiet corner before heading into the private party celebrating the end of the competition.

Channel 7 said Cartwright had had no advance warning, but Hewitt was prepared with a "big diamond".

The 23-year-old tennis player had apparently hoped to propose after winning the grand slam final, but instead lost to the fourth-seeded Safin 1-6 6-3 6-4 6-4.

A concierge at Melbourne's Park Hyatt Hotel said the pair looked happy when they returned to the hotel last night.

"Magic was in the air, and of course love was in the air. The two parties looked fantastic together and they were both very happy," Damien Miller said on Seven.

Today Cartwright was back at work in Sydney.

The actor dodged media at Melbourne and Sydney airports and was today understood to be filming on the set of Home and Away on Sydney's northern beaches.

Both Cartwright and Hewitt recently ended long-term relationships.

Hewitt was engaged to Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters before that relationship ended last October, while Cartwright split with actor boyfriend Beau Brady late last year.

best of luck to lleyton and bec. only they will ever know if their love is true, but it is great listening to people hash it out and giving it an expiration date. i guess we will all just have to wait and see. i hope it works out for them

secondly, to those thinking maybe she was the reason for the breakup, just recall how lleyton reacted after the breakup with kim. it was right around the Paris Masters Tournament, and he was kind of torn apart, but said he was going to focus on tennis. This doesn't mean he wasn't with Bec, but it would kind of be weird if he was with Bec when him and Kim split up and was hurt by the breakup, wouldn't he have just not worried about the breakup and gone straight to Bec. Okay, so maybe I am over-analyizing it. Oh well, whatever happens, i think it is safe to say, love is a strange thing.

I find this really surprising, but considering the fact that he went out with Kim for so long, I think that the longer you go out and stay engaged, it becomes hard for you to want to commit and marry. I mean it was short considering how long its been since he broke up with Kim. Lets hope it lasts and is not something that will melt down very soon. I just hope that they are doing the right thing and not making a mistake. At the same time, maybe it is better for him to marry someone from his own country. They understand each other more and the culture is the same.

I guess he's just a hopeless romantic. :shrug: Never would have figured that looking at the guy.

Do you guys think Lleyton kept the same ceremony, church, witnesses, etc., than the ones forecasted with Kim ? The timing is perfect after all !! :devil:

No one is saying they are not in love - just that it is very early in a relationship to be getting engaged.

and that he just got out of almost a 5-yr relationship with his EX-FIANCEE, Kim...and that he is supposed to be getting married to Kim on Saturday...

it's a bit strange for him to be engaged now...well...i hope he was thinking clear and logical when he popped the question...

I wonder what Kim has done wiv her engagement ring...probably gave it back to Hewitt and he pawned it for another one to give to Bec! But seriously, good luck to them and if they can make it work...

The BBC said that they knew each other from 5 years ago and were really good friends...wasn't that the time he met Kim, obviously he thought she was better!

Advice to Lleyton:

Get a good lawyer.
Get a good travel agent.
Get a good psychiatrist.

Seems you already have a good jeweler.

:haha: :haha: :haha: :haha: LMAO

Lleyton a shop-o-holic...loves dropping his cash at Tiffany's. Maybe he gets the diamonds wholesale. At the rate he's going, one marriage proposal a year, I'd say it would be a good idea.

God, I hope not. I'm sure their parents are having words to both of them at the moment
