Sebastian Baez is an Argentine professional tennis player who was born on December 28, 2000, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After playing tennnis for the majority of his childhood, the Argentine progressed rapidly through the junior ranks.

After years of successful tennis played at the Challenger and ITF levels, he finally made his main-tour ATP debut in 2021 when he came up against former Roland Garros quarterfinalist Holger Rune in the first round of the Chile Open in Santiago.

Despite losing the encounter, this paved the path for more and more ATP appearances and overall improvement. Later that year, he won his first ATP match at the Hamburg Open but failed to progress further.

After a successful season, the Argentinian earned himself a spot at the Next ATP Gen Finals of that same season, ultimately losing to multiple Grand Slam winner Carlos Alcaraz in the semifinal.

With his ranking now earning him automatic qualification to all the main ATP tournaments, he was ready for rapid improvement. Proof of this came the following season when he overcame Frances Tiafoe to win the Estoril Open and claim his first ATP title.

Progress was then exponential for the South American, winning a host of tournaments the following year – Winston-Salem OpenKitzbuhel Open, and Cordoba Open, propelling his ranking up further. Despite success everywhere on the ATP Tour, deep runs at the Grand Slams are still something that evades the Argentine, with his best results being his third-round appearances in Australia and New York.

Two additional ATP trophies later (Santiago and Rio), helped the Argentine to achieve further breakthrough. He also managed to break into the Top 20 in 2024. Such progress for such a young talent is promising, with his country now getting caught up in Baez-fever.
