Julien Benneteau Biography

Julien Benneteau is a French professional tennis player whose singles career-high ranking is ATP World No. 26, as of April 2012. He is generally regarded as one of the best singles players on the tour who has not won a title, but was runner up in 6 ATP tournaments. Before his senior debut in professional tennis, Benneteau won the Boys 16s singles title in the 1996 Orange Bowl. At the 2006 French Open, Benneteau reached the quarterfinals by defeating Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis. In the 2008 season, he reached two ATP finals, at Casablanca. In the quarterfinals of the 2009 Western & Southern Financial Group Masters, he played a remarkable 53-point rally with the then World No. 2 Andy Murray in the second set but ended up losing in the final. His best career victory was undoubtedly achieved on 11 November 2009 when he scored a huge upset over World No. 1 Roger Federer in the second round of the 2009 Paris Masters. In 2012, he reached the 3rd round of French Open 2012, followed by another entry into the third round of Wimbeldon where Roger Federer went on to win the title. In the 2012 Olympics in London, he captured the bronze medal in doubles with Richard Gasquet.
