CareerEdit

Zopp reached the second round of the Australian and US Open Boys' tournaments in 2006.

Zopp made a breakthrough on the ATP tour in 2012, qualifying for the main draws of the Australian Open, Roland Garros, and Wimbledon, and achieving his first main draw ATP tournament win in Bucharest, establishing himself as a top-100 player in the ATP rankings at world no. 71.

In qualifying for the 2018 French Open he defeated Thanasi Kokkinakis.[2] Although he lost in the final round of qualifying to Denis Kudla[3] it was enough for him to make the main draw as a lucky loser.[4] In the first round he defeated American seed Jack Sock for his sixth tour level win on clay.[5] He then defeated fellow lucky loser Ruben Bemelmans despite losing the first two sets, therefore reaching a career-best third round at Grand Slam events. His run ended in the third round following a defeat to Maximilian Marterer.[6]
