Having been introduced to the sport at the age of five, there’s been no looking back for Márton Fucsovics. The Hungarian won his first trophy at the 2003 National Championships and also went home victorious from the Nike Junior Tour.
Fucsovics first shot onto the international scene with a triumphant campaign that precipitated in the 2009 US Open Boys’ Doubles title. The following year, he reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open Boys’ Singles and followed it up by taking the Wimbledon Boys’ Singles Championship. Further success with the Hungarian U18 team saw him become the world No. 1 in the junior ITF rankings.
Fucsovics won his first senior title in 2013 by taking home the trophy at the Kunming Open – a feat he repeated at the Andria Challenger later that year. Three years later, he made his Grand Slam debut at the US Open, although that ended with an early exit for the Hungarian. 2017 saw Fucsovics win two challenger titles at the Internazionali di Tennis Città di Vicenza and at the Ikley Challenger. He also broke through into the top 100 rankings for the first time that year, with a career high ranking of 99.
2018 started off positively for Márton with a maiden Grand Slam win at the first round of the Australian Open; a strong run followed before he fell to Roger Federer in the fourth round. A confident run at the Australian Open helped Fucsovics win his first ATP titles at the Geneva Open and reach a career high ranking of 45.
The following year was a tough one for the Hungarian, but he managed to reach the finals of the Sofia Open before losing to Daniil Medvedev and broke into the top 40 rankings for the first time in his career.
The Rotterdam Open final was Fucsovics most impressive display, with strong performances throughout the tournament almost taking him all the way.

Known for his big and powerful forehand, Fucsovics boasts of an aggressive playing style. With strong ground strokes and a powerful service, the Hungarian uses his strong physique to his advantage.
