You gotta love it!
Over here in the states, Lleyton and Cruz Hewitt are pretty much unknown. Over in Australia, the duo is instantly recognizable, especially by those who follow tennis.
Lleyton Hewitt was formerly ranked as the #1 best tennis player in the world, and he is the most recent Australian to win a men’s singles Grand Slam title. Lleyton’s son Cruz is following in his father’s footsteps, as he became the Australian junior tennis clay-court champ in 2021. No wonder Nintendo was keen to pick them up for advertising purposes in Australia!
The father-son duo is appearing in a new series of Nintendo Switch Sports commercials, and as you might guess, the two are showing off their virtual tennis skills. Check out their debut commercial above.
