Born in Kiev in the Ukraine on the 11th of July, 1988, Alexandr Dolgopolov started playing tennis when he was barely three and turned professional in 2006, although it would take him until 2010 to make a name for himself in the world of tennis and make his entry into the ATP circuit.

After racking up a total of 21 victories, he jumped more than 80 places to end 2010 in the Top 50.

He won the Challenger tournament in Meknes and got to the third round of the Roland Garros, his best Grand Slam result up to that point.

He got 2011 off to an ideal start, reaching the quarter final of the Australian Open and reaching his first ATP World Tour final in February at Cost do Sauipe.

He won his first title in Umag and notched up some other good results towards the end of the season: as well as getting to the quarter finals in the Shanghai Masters 1000, he won the doubles competition alongside Xavier Malisse at Indian Wells.

He ended 2011 as the world number 15. His results so far this season have further improved his ranking and confirmed him as one of the most promising players on the ATP.
