Bob Hewitt (born on January 12, 1940 in Sydney, Australia) was a professional male tennis player from Australia. After he married a South Africa he became an official South African citizen. His most significant accomplishments were winning all of the Grand Slam doubles titles (U.S. Open, Wimbledon, Australian Open, French Open) and being central to South Africa's winning the Davis in 1974. That victory was a little controversial though with India boycotting the final because the team on the orders of its government refused to play the final in South Africa due to its Apartheid policies which were affecting the ethnic Indian community of the country.
In 1992 he was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
