Given 

line y x 

You want also a line, it seems, from 

(0,0) to (x[1], y[1]) 

for which I would recommend -scatteri- as 
one solution. 

sysuse auto, clear 
sort weight 
line mpg weight, lstyle(p1) || scatteri 0 0 `= mpg[1]' `= weight[1]' , recast(line) lstyle(p1) yti(`: variable label mpg')  xti(`: variable label weight') legend(off)
