Biography

Overview
Touted as a future champion after an impressive junior career, Fritz is now delivering on his enormous potential. The 21-year-old has soared up the rankings in a career-best 2019 season, with an ATP title breakthrough at Eastbourne a highlight. He set a career-high ranking of No.25 in August.

Off court
Fritz, who grew up idolizing Juan Martin del Potro and Pete Sampras, began playing tennis when he was two. His father, Guy, is a tennis coach and his mother, Kathy May, is a former top 10 player. Fritz married Raquel Pedraza, who competed in all four Grand Slams as a junior, in July 2016. Their son, Jordan, was born in January 2017.

Career
Winning the US Open boys’ singles title in 2015, as well as making the Roland Garros boys’ final, helped Fritz rise to world No.1 in the junior rankings. He reached a first ATP final in Memphis – in only his third tour-level tournament – the following year to break into the world’s top 100 and become the youngest American finalist since Michael Chang in 1989. He received the peer-voted ATP Newcomer of the Year award in 2016 and qualified for the Next Gen ATP Finals last season.
