Corentin Moutet is a French professional tennis player who was born on April 19, 1999, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. Born to parents Rodolphe and Alexandra, Corentin was introduced to tennis at the tender age of three.

Following what would have seemed like a lifetime of grinding out results on the junior tours across France and the rest of the world, Moutet was ready to give going pro a good shot. From 2014, he spent the formative years of his professional career on the ITF and Challenger tours, yearning for that elusive ATP main draw debut.

His hard work paid off in 2018 at the Australian Open, where his Grand Slam and ATP main draw debut ended in a four-set defeat to seasoned pro Andreas Seppi. 2018 was certainly the year when he started to see his luck turn in terms of accessing the main tournaments, with the Frenchman appearing in a lot of qualifying tournaments for the big competitions.

2018 also saw him get his foot on the ladder in terms of the Grand Slams, with his first victory at that level coming in that season’s edition of Roland Garros. The following year, Moutet managed to go even better than previous results, reaching the third round of his favourite event, the French Open.

He rapidly followed this up with a second-round appearance at Wimbledon just a matter of weeks later. Such rapid progress was a testament to the work he had been putting in, and more evidence of this came the following season when he reached his first tour-level final at the 2020 edition of the Qatar Open. Losing to Andrey Rublev, the disappointment was used by the Frenchman as motivation to continue.

Just two years down the line, Moutet was getting yet more career-best. Firstly, he reached the furthest round he ever had at the Grand Slam level when he got to the US Open fourth round, which in turn set him up nicely to achieve a career-to-date best world ranking of number 51.

Despite not yet winning an ATP singles title, the Frenchman’s endless pursuit of silverware continues, and his youthful assets will certainly help him claim his first crown in the future.
