Lewis Steven E. Burton (born 23 March 1992 in Bexley) is an English tennis player.

Career[edit]

Burton started playing tennis at the age of seven, and reached a career high ranking of 172 (singles and doubles combined) on the Juniors circuit, achieved in July 2010. Along with George Morgan, he reached the final of the boys' doubles at Wimbledon in 2010. However, they lost the final 6–7(4), 4–6 to the fellow British pairing of Liam Broady and Tom Farquharson. The following year, Morgan won the boys' doubles title with Mate Pavić, with Burton being too old to compete. In 2012, Burton and Morgan, now both too old for the boys' tournament, were given a wildcard into qualifying for the men's doubles at Wimbledon. They qualified for the main draw, where they lost to Steve Darcis and Olivier Rochus in the first round, by a scoreline of 6–4 5–7 6–7(3) 4–6.
