Tomas Martin Etcheverry is an Argentine professional tennis player who was born on July 18, 1999, in La Plata, Argentina. Born to lawyer parents Fernando and Maria Lia, Tomas started playing tennis at the tender age of just five years old.

After rapidly progressing through the junior ranks, the Argentine wanted to prove his worth amongst the world’s best on the ATP Tour. Having spent his career gaining experience on the ITF and Challenger tours, the Argentine’s main draw ATP debut came at the 2021 Delray Beach Open.

Despite losing in the first round to Christian Harrison, it was the start of good things to come for the South American player. The following month, he recorded his first ATP main draw win against Andrej Martin to set up a second-round tie against Albert Ramos-Vinolas at his home tournament in Cordoba.

His 2021 season would have filled him with confidence and motivation, as he was ready to push on up the rankings in 2022. At the season-opening Slam in Australia, he battled hard through three grueling qualifying rounds to earn himself his Grand Slam debut at the Australian Open, eventually falling to Pablo Carreno Busta in the first round.

This set him up well, though, as he earned automatic qualification into the rest of the Slams that year. 2023 saw him finally get a win at this level, at the Australian Open. Just one month later, he reached his first ATP main draw final, beating players of the caliber of Fabio Fognini and Sebastien Baez to set up what ended up being a three-set defeat to fellow South American Nicolas Jarry in the final.

He backed up this form with another ATP final, this time in Houston, where he ultimately lost to home favorite Frances Tiafoe, but this progress was just the start. At that season’s French Open, he recorded his first-ever Major quarterfinal after seeing himself past Alex de Minuar and Borna Coric before eventually losing to Alexander Zverev in four sets.

The progress has been exponential ever since, with the Argentine player breaking into the Top 30 in February 2024. It is still that elusive first ATP title that he is waiting for, but it does seem a question of when rather than if.
