Lleyki Timeline

Hi guys meet your new member. I´m Mandy, and I have just become a Kim and Lleyton fan.
As I am a new fan, and I´m sure there are quite a few of us around this board after the Aussie Open, I don´t really know any of the history of Kim and Lleyton, like where they met, what parties they´ve been to, any arguments (hope there aren´t many ) etc.
I thought if people could post important/ their fave Leyki moments it would give the new fans a chance to catch up, and also give the senior members a chance to "re-live the memories".
Ignore it if you don´t think its a good idea I won´t hold it against you.

By the way this forum is the best I hope I´ll make friends with you all.

helloo!!!

this is what i've read/heard ( please correct me if I'm wrong)

kim's little sis, Elke, was a fan of Lleyton and asked kim to ask lleyton for an autograph, that's how they started talking. This was in Australia. They're now 3 years and two months together (really not sure about this?).

actually I also want to hear more... so anyone?

plz help me and go to natalielefevre.wantstogotovalencia.com and vote for me!!!!

I've also read that when he met Kim she was a fan of Pat Rafter and Lleyton invited her to a party (for Pat I believe). She accepted thinking he was asking her so she could meet Pat, but he asked her as his date sneaky Lleyton lol

I've heard a few different versions of them meeting and going out..so if this one is wrong, just tell me

I read yet naother that Kim went to get Pat Rafter's autograph for Elke and met Ll whilst she was there.

I think we can accept that she wnt to get an autograph from one of them; Ll asked her out (although I remember vaguely a quote from one of them saying they went to dinner first? Anyone remember that? Angele, remember we said they each had a completely different story of how they first met) but they only started going out with each other properly at the Ericsson Open in March 2000.

According to Kim, she met Lleyton when she approached him for an autograph for Elke at the Aussie open in 2000. They chatted with each other as the tourney went on when their paths crossed. Deep into the tourney, Lleyton asked her out to a party for St. Rafter. They got very close at the TMS Miami. Lleyton went to Belgium with her after that. And we found out (at least I did )they were dating at the Wimby 2000 where they played mixed dubs.
I don't know if she accepted it thinking he was asking her so she could meet St. Rafter coz that was Jon Werthless' version. I don't know where he got it from.

Lleyton's version is a bit different

Here's a part of his interview at TMS Cincy last year where Lleyton talked about it.

Q. As a shy guy growing up did you have the courage to ask a girl out?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Actually didn't have that many girlfriends. When Kim and I started it was -- I don't know, actually, it was a little bit of both. But I didn't have a lot of guts when it comes to that.

Q. Did you just kind of chat her up a little bit or just ask her out?

LLEYTON HEWITT: We were -- when was it -- 2000 Australian Open and I'd just won Adelaide and Sydney that year, and I arrived late and I was chatting with one of my mates who I played juniors with, Nathan, he was playing doubles at the Australian Open. He knew Kim through juniors. I was sitting together, I just sat down and that is how we got introduced. She asked me if I wanted to play mixed doubles. I think she knew we could get a wildcard. I couldn't because I committed to my sister about three months before that. That's how it started.

Q. She literally asked you out?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Well, she asked me to go on the tennis court. I don't know if it was because of my looks or anything to do with that.
(I love this part! )

LOL it appears you're going to have to pick and choose which stories to believe Mandy

I thought the story of Kim getting Lleyton's autograph for Elke was the real story of how they met

Personally I think that she asked him for an autograph for Elke then he asked her to Pat's party and while at the party she asked him to play doubles. There!

Graham Norton: William says, “If his tongue is too long, just push him back gently, and whisper your tongue is too long.”
Orlando Bloom: I wonder what Keira would’ve said. 'Sorry love, your tongue’s just too long.'
G: Your tongue, no it’s too long.
O: Director! Tongue’s too long! Can’t work with this!
G: I can’t breathe!
O: Where’s my agent?!
G: Who cast this guy with the long tongue? It’s a nightmare!

What a wonderful thread

Ok so I'll post a little bit of a timeline, complete with pictures

Ok so they met at Australian Open 2000 but exactly how they met is still a bit of a mystery since Lleyton and Kim tell two totally different stories But anyways, from what I know, they just got together at the Miami tournament a couple of months later.

At Wimbledon 2000, they played mixed doubles and got to the finals and I think that was when it all came out that they were dating. Lleyton was also around to watch some of Kim's matches ( and vice versa I'm sure)





Kim was at the Davis Cup Final in december 2000 to cheer on Lleyton




At the 2001 Australian Open, they were out and about to watch each other's matches!





In late January 2001, Lleyton and Kim are seen arriving in Sydney where Lleyton is filming some kind of tv commercial





At Rosmalen 2001, where they were both playing, we got some nice Lleyki pictures. First of them arrving at the airport and then of them coming home from a romantic dinner







At Wimbledon 2001, Lleyton was out watching Kim with Kim's father Leo



The 2001 US Open was a great tournament for Lleyton, winning his very first grand slam. Kim was of course there to support him during the tournament and of course during the final! She was also there when he received the key to the city in Adelaide










Lleyton was with Kim at the 2001 Filderstadt (sp? ) tournament where they attended the player's party



Kim was there for the Masters Cup final in 2001 which Lleyton won



I'm going continue the rest in another post lol
