Born in Bourg en Bresse on 20 December 1981 he made his first appearance on the ATP circuit in 2001. He broke into the top 100 for the first time at the end of 2004 and in 2006 reached his furthest ever phase of a Grand Slam, getting as far as the quarterfinals of the Roland Garros.

Julien Benneteau is one of France’s tennis veterans, whose greatest achievements have come in winning titles at doubles.

He played in his first ATP finals in 2008 (Casablanca and Lyon) and has taken part in one final every year since then, losing all six that he’s contested, the last of which was in Sydney in January 2012.

He climbed to his highest ever positions in the ATP rankings for both the singles (no32) and doubles (no15) categories in 2010.

He has won a total of six doubles titles, the most prestigious of which was the Masters 1000 in Shanghai alongside his partner Jo-Wilfred Tsonga. He has also been unlucky in Master 1000 doubles finals, having lost three in Monte Carlo, Toronto and Paris.
