Karen Khachanov Career
The young Russian athlete with Armenian roots Karen Khachanov was born on May 21, 1996. He came into the sport very early, at the age of three, and rather quickly made up his mind about the choice of his profession.
Karen first came out on the court in 2011 at the Futures clay court, where, however, he did not last long, losing to Andrei Gorban. Two seasons later he debuted on the ATP Tour (St Petersburg Championships) where he made a very favorable impression on the public; moreover, Evgeny Kafelnikov, who watched the young tennis player play, predicted he would have a brilliant career and be at the top of the ATP rankings.
In the same year Karen received an invitation to the national team, and in 2014 he took part in the Junior Olympics, wherein tandem with Andrei Rublev won silver. A little later the Russian won his first Futures trophy.
Karen progressed rapidly, even by the most optimistic standards: in 2015, he won the Turkish Challenger trophy, and the following spring he was selected for the ATP Barcelona, where he unexpectedly reached the third round, beating one of the favorites of the draw – the Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut on the way. The same year he entered the top 100, after which he took part in the majors (U.S. Open) for the first time in his career.

In the fall of 2016, the Russian won his first ATP title, beating Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas in Chengdu. Successful performances allowed Karen to finish the year in the top 60 of the rankings.
Khachanov’s 2017 began uneventfully, but his performance at Roland Garros was praised by sports experts: the tennis player managed to reach the fourth round, where he was stopped by Andy Murray (an achievement Karen surpassed two years later, making it to the quarterfinals of the clay major).
In 2018, Khachanov added to his record by winning the Marseille championship trophy, and later showed himself well in the Russian capital by taking the ATP Moscow title. However, his main achievement was not even making it into the top 20, but a fairy-tale victory at the Paris Masters, where Karen defeated opponents such as John Isner, Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem. In the final, the Russian managed to defeat then world number two Novak Djokovic 7-5, 6-4.

2019 did not bring Karen any significant trophies, but his consistently high results allowed him to make his debut in the top 10. In addition, the Russian helped his national team reach the semifinals at the Davis Cup, and early next season he reached the same stage of the ATP Cup.
In 2020, due to the cancellation of most tournaments, Karen was not able to show good results, his brightest performance was at Roland Garros, where he reached the 4th round, and lost to Novak Djokovic.
