In some smoky Sydney blues bar, Lleyton Hewitt was getting ready for an open mic night where all kinds of novice musical acts take to the stage. Some were great and some were bad Karaoke at best.

Hewitt, equipped with only an acoustic 12-string took to the stage. At first the audience did not realize or recognize the tennis star.

"G'day mates. Want to sing a song 'bout my life and how it's been going lately."
