Career

Lewis and partner Tony Withers won the boys' doubles title in the 1981 Australian Open.[2] He was a singles quarter-finalist in the boys' singles at the 1982 Australian Open and also won the New Zealand National Championships for the 18s age group that year.[2]

Most successful as a doubles player, Lewis was a runner-up in the 1990 Geneva Open with Neil Borwick.[2] He appeared in four Grand Slam tournaments and had his best showing at the 1988 Australian Open, where he and Ivo Werner made the round of 16.[2]

He reached his only singles quarterfinal in 1986, at the Auckland ATP event.[2] The following year, he had a win over the world No. 30, Jonas Svensson, in Wellington.[2]

Lewis took part in seven Davis Cup ties for his country. Of his seven doubles rubbers, six of which were with Kelly Evernden, three were won. He won his only singles rubber against Wu Chang-rung of Taiwan.[3]

Lewis is now coaching director of the South Carolina based Ivan Lendl International Junior Tennis Academy.[4]
