Dominic Stricker is a Swiss professional tennis player who was born on August 26, 2002, in Grosshochstetten, Switzerland. After being introduced to the sport at the age of just five by his mother, Sabine, and former table tennis champion father, Stephan, it was quickly evident he had the talent.

This talent subsequently developed into a flourishing junior career, with the Swiss player having highlights such as doing the double at the 2020 Boys' French Open, winning both singles and doubles titles. The following year, he was keen to translate this success to the main ATP Tour.

His wish was granted, as he made his main draw ATP debut at the 2021 Geneva Open, beating experienced Marin Cilic and Marton Fuscovics in the first and second rounds. The same edition of this very tournament happened to be his ATP debut in doubles too, with him also grabbing his first win in the opening round.

Successes in 2021 did not stop there, as the Swiss had clearly adjusted to life on the world stage swimmingly. He quickly claimed his first ATP doubles title later that season at the Swiss Open in Gstaad.

Back on the singles side of things, and Stricker was keen to build on his progress from 2021 and fly up the rankings. He did this to a certain extent, as getting more key wins at bigger ATP events certainly boosted his name amongst the world’s best.

Irregular appearances cost him, though, as he only appeared at five ATP main draw events in 2022. The following season did bring with it some very promising results for him, though, as he made his Grand Slam debut at the Roland Garros in Paris, as well as getting his first win at that level just a couple of months down the line at Wimbledon in London.

A stellar run at the final Slam of the season really thrust him into the limelight, though, as wins against Alexei Popyrin, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Benjamin Bonzi at the US Open to reach the fourth round made everyone take note. The future is certainly bright for the young Swiss, who will hope 2024 will be his year to get that coveted first ATP title and further boost his ranking.
