Ah cheers.. so non of the big names then.
Lleyton Hewitt was the big-name player who came the closest to pulling it off. His first ever appearance at a tour level ever came at the Aussie Open in 1997 when he was 15 years old. In his 2nd ever appearance, he had a remarkable run to win his home city title at Adelaide in 1998 at the age of 16.
