Ugo Humbert Facts
- Ugo had started playing tennis from the age of 5 after watching his father compete in local matches. At the age of 12, he had decided to move to the city of Poitiers to avail of practice and training facilities provided by the French Tennis Federation.
- He has had recurring issues with groin injuries and was forced to sit out 18 months in 2010 and 2011, and then 7 months in 2016. In January 2016, he had achieved a career-high junior ranking of world number 18.
- In the 2nd half of the 2018 season of the ATP Challenger Tour, he had reached 3 tournament finals in 3 weeks, winning the last one. These performances had helped him to qualify for the US Open qualifying tournament, through which he had earned a place in the main draw of the US Open, his first appearance in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament. He went on to win the opening round match.
- At the 2019 Australian Open, he had lost a humdinger of a match to compatriot Jérémy Chardy in 5 sets with a scoreline that read 6–3, 6(6)–7(8), 4–6, 7(7)–6(4), 6(6)–7(10). This was the first time since 1976 that the Australian Open had featured a final set tie-break, and this match was the first-ever at the Australian Open singles event to be decided by a super tiebreak. This meant that upon reaching a score of 6-6 in the final set, the players had to go into a tie-break where the winner would be the first one to both reach at least 10 points and lead by 2 points.
- When he won the Auckland Open in January 2020, he had become the youngest Frenchman to win an ATP World Tour title since Richard Gasquet had won a title in Mumbai in September 2007.
