Ugo Humbert Career
Ugo Humbert was born on June 26, 1998, in the French city of Metz. His father’s name is Eric and his mother’s name is Ann. Ugo also has a sister named Lea. Humber is one of the most interesting young French players.
Eric Humbert brought his son to court when he was 5 years old. Very soon Hugo “made friends” with the racket, and his coach predicted a great future in tennis. Speaking at the city competitions he enticed representatives of the French Tennis Federation with his game. Immediately after the tournament, Humbert was offered to move to Poitiers. There was a training base for the French national team. After consulting with his parents, Ugo agreed. At that moment he was only 12 years old. Thanks to the experience Humbert received, he began to progress very quickly. Hugo showed good results in the junior competitions, winning many times. Even an injury, which he struggled with for more than a year, didn’t let him down.
Beginning in late 2015, Ugo Humbert began to play tournaments as a professional tennis player. At the time, Ugo was not even in the top 1,000 tennis players in the world, and by the end of 2016, he had climbed to 381. In 2017 he managed to win two ITF tournaments in Egypt and France.
After a disappointing first half of the season on the ATP Challenger Tour, Humbert had a breakthrough in 2018, reaching three finals in three weeks. After losing the first two in Gatineau and Granby, the tennis player won his first Challenger title in Segovia. These successes allowed him to qualify for the U.S. Open, which he successfully passed and made his way into the main draw. Umber defeated Collin Altamirano in the first round, but in the next round he faced a serious opponent, Stan Wawrinka, whom he lost in four sets.
In early October 2018, Ugo Humbert won his second Challenger title in Ortisei, defeating his compatriot Pierre-Hugues Herbert, which put him in the top 100 for the first time, ranking him 99th. At the 2019 Australian Open, Umber faced Jeremy Chardy in the first round, but unfortunately lost to the more experienced Frenchman in five sets: 6-3, 6-7 (8/6), 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 6-7 (10/6).
In February 2019, Humbert reached his first ATP semifinal in Marseille. Later that year, he reached the fourth round of Wimbledon, in which he lost to reigning champion Novak Djokovic. Ugo reached two other ATP 250 semifinals: in Newport, where he lost in three sets to John Isner, and in Antwerp, where he lost in three sets to Andy Murray. The Frenchman ended his season by taking part in the NextGen ATP Finals, but lost as early as the group stage. Despite this, he still managed to get a meaningful victory at this tournament. In one of the group stage matches, Hugo defeated future winner Jannick Sinner.
