I read on another forum that Lleyton was once a ballboy. Does anyone know if this is true? If so, when and where? I'd imagine it was in Adelaide, but he won the title at such a young age that it's hard to picture him as a ballboy.

I don't know the answer to the question, but I believe at the DC tie you're referring to here (Aus v Fra Sydney 1997) Lleyton was the 'orange boy' (i.e. practice partner) not a ball boy :)

When Lleyton had the age to be a ballboy, he was already winning matches on the ATP-tour, I think.
