It's Tennis, where love means ...

Bec Cartwright's All Seats Taken well you know. I hear today that Lleyton Hewitt, the former Wimbledon Tennis champion and Australian Davis Cup star has wed a pregnant Bec Cartwright at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney. This comes after Lleyton, who has been described as "a lovely guy" proposed after losing to Marat Safin in this year's Australian Open.

Television footage showed Cartwright in a white gown with a sweeping train. Lleyton wore a traditional wedding suit with an ivory tie. Police patrolled the grounds of the Sydney Opera House to make sure no irritating paparazzi or even fans snapped a photo of the lovely couple. Why? Because they have sold the exclusive rights to their nuptials to an Australian magazine!

Cartwright is the star of the Aussie Soap Home and Away, and her former co-star Lynne McGranger said that the wedding party was on a "magical mystery tour." Ken Roche, Hewitt's mentor and Davis Cup coach said the marriage was "a big test" but that he thought Hewitt could handle it.

Hewitt, who once was engaged to Belgian tennis star Kim Clijsters, and Becs announced in May they were expecting a child.

The wedding party went on a sunset cruise in Sydney Harbour and then to the Taronga Zoo for the reception. Who knows, maybe Lleyton and Becs will be the Andre and Steffi of Australia or the Beckham and Posh Spice.
