1. Lleyton Hewitt

DOB: 24.02.1981
Nationality: Australian
World Ranking: 1
Australian Open record: 
2002 :: first round
2001 :: third round
2000 :: fourth round
1999 :: second round
1998 :: first round
1997 :: first round

Hewitt went into last year as the world number one and built on that success over the following 12 months, winning Wimbledon and retaining his top ranking.

The year ended with a magnificent win in the ATP Masters Cup as the 21-year-old saw off his biggest rivals for the second year in a row.

But it was far from a perfect year, and Hewitt still has plenty to prove on home soil.

At last year's Australian Open he became the first top seed to lose in the first round of a Grand Slam since 1990, and he has yet to make even the quarter-finals in Melbourne.

He also went out of the French Open in the fourth round and let his US Open crown slip with a semi-final loss to Andre Agassi.

But as the world's leading player, and with a game suited to all surfaces, it is surely only a matter of time before he makes an impact at Melbourne Park.
