The curly-haired teen posed for a photo on the pitch with Lleyton and Matt, who happens to be Rebel Wilson’s ex-boyfriend.

“Super excited to get my first ITF title in Fiji,” he wrote.

Cruz wore a colorful T-shirt and shorts as he stood next to his two mentors.

Cruz’s Instagram is full of photos of himself training and playing in tournaments.

Lleyton previously spoke of his high hopes for his son’s career, assuming he will be playing in the Australian Open by the time he is 14.

“Hopefully he will get the chance to play at this great event if he wants to. Hopefully he beats me,” he said at the Australian Open in January 2019.

It comes after Lleyton Hewitt was welcomed into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in July, surrounded by his family.

Lleyton ended his professional career in 2016 and reached the world No. 1 at the age of 20.

He held the first place for about 18 months from 2001 to 2003, and then another five weeks in 2003.
