The top Polish player in men’s tennis history, Hubert is making his first appearance with Team Europe in Vancouver, ending 2021 at a career-high No.9 in the ATP singles rankings. It was the same year he reached the Wimbledon semifinals and defeated eight-time champion Roger Federer in his last professional singles match.
Nicknamed Hubi, the Polish No.1 began playing tennis at the age of 5. His mother, Zosia, was a junior tennis champion in Poland, and his uncles, Lech and Tomek, also played tennis while his grandfather competed in elite volleyball. Naming Roger Federer as his childhood idol, Hubert developed his game on clay and says he would have been a racing-car driver had he not pursued tennis. He also loves basketball, snooker, reading and watches.
Hubert excels on grass and hard court surfaces, and owns six ATP singles titles including the 2021 Miami Masters where he defeated Italian Jannik Sinner in the final. It was a standout year for the tall Pole, who reached the semifinals at Wimbledon with a five-set win over Daniil Medvedev in the round of 16 and a three-set ousting of 20-time Grand Slam singles champion, Federer. Hubert claimed his sixth career title in 2023 at Marseille, and endured three five-set matches at the Australian Open in January, losing the last to Sebastian Korda in the fourth round. He also holds four doubles titles including the ATP Masters 1000 Miami 2022 with John Isner, and the ATP Masters 1000 Paris 2020 with Team World’s Felix Auger-Aliassime.
