Having finished as runner-up at two Junior Grand Slam tournaments, Janowicz rose to prominence on the pro circuit leading up to and following his run to the final—albeit as a qualifier, of the 2012 Paris Masters, during which he defeated five top-20 players such as Andy Murray and Janko Tipsarević. Despite losing to David Ferrer in the finals, he made his top-30 debut in the ATP Rankings and became the highest-ranked male Polish tennis player.
Janowicz became the first Polish male to reach a Grand Slam semifinal at the 2013 Wimbledon Championships, losing to eventual champion Andy Murray. He struggled with a major knee injury during the 2016 season, which led to a significant drop in rankings and form. Janowicz is currently coached by Günter Bresnik and his strength and conditioning coach is Piotr Grabia.
Born in Łódź, Poland Janowicz began playing tennis at the age of five after his parents introduced him to the sport. Fathe, Jerzy and mother Anna Szalbot were both professional volleyball players. Janowicz has named Pete Sampras as his inspiration. Every October Janowicz and his team run the annual Atlas Jerzyk Cup tennis tournament in Lodz, Poland promoting the sport to young children, ages 8 to 12 years old.
Janowicz inherits his athleticism and height from his parents, who were both volleyball players. Also his parents were highly aggressive and very susceptible to letting their emotions take control of them, which Janowicz clearly inherits given his many controversial moments on the tennis court. At the age of 10 or 11, his parents sold off their chain of sports stores and apartments to support their son's training, recognizing that he had a future in tennis from a young age. As a junior Janowicz posted a 59–23 win/loss record and reached a combined ranking of no. 5 in the world in 2008. He reached the boys' singles final at the 2007 US Open and 2008 French Open, losing in straight sets to Ričardas Berankis and Yang Tsung-hua, respectively.
2012: Top 30 ATP ranking and breakthrough on ATP World TourEdit
Janowicz ended 2011 ranked 221 in the world. At the start of 2012 he could not play in the 2012 Australian Open due to lack of sponsorship. In February, he was the runner-up in a Challenger tournament in Wolfsburg, Germany. Later in the year, he won three Challenger tournament finals. At the 2012 French Open, he got as far as the third round of qualifying, but failed to make it into the main draw. At the 2012 Wimbledon Championships, he made it through the three rounds of qualifying to be in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time, where he defeated a qualifier, Simone Bolelli, in the first round, Ernests Gulbis in the second, then lost to the 31st seed Florian Mayer in the third. At the 2012 US Open, he made it directly into a Grand Slam without having to compete in the qualifying rounds. He lost to young American wildcard Dennis Novikov.
In November 2012, Janowicz qualified for the main draw of the 2012 BNP Paribas Masters, an ATP 1000 tournament. He defeated world no. 19, Philipp Kohlschreiber, in the first round, the no. 14 Marin Čilić in the second and the no. 3 and Olympic Gold medalist and US Open Champion Andy Murray in the third. He defeated Murray in three sets, saving one match point en route. He said afterwards "This was the most unbelievable day in my life." In the quarterfinals, he defeated no. 9 Janko Tipsarević, to go on to play in the semifinals where he beat Frenchman and no. 20 Gilles Simon to reach his first ATP tour-level final. He was the first qualifier to do this since Andrei Pavel in 2003 and the first player to reach the final on his ATP World Tour Masters 1000 debut since Harel Levy in 2000. In the final, he was defeated by fourth seed David Ferrer, but afterwards said "I've got a lot of confidence right now. I learned if you have big heart and you want to do something amazing and you're going to fight for this, you have a big chance to make it." His run led him to the top 30 for the first time in his career, and he finished the year ranked no. 24, almost 200 places higher than the previous year.
2013: Ascent to No. 14 and first Grand Slam semifinalEdit
Janowicz began his season at the Heineken Open in Auckland, New Zealand, where he was seeded fifth; however, he lost his opening match against American Brian Baker. He then competed for the first time in the main draw of the Australian Open, where he was the 24th seed, the first time he had been seeded at a Grand Slam tournament. He won his first two matches against Italian Simone Bolelli in straight sets, and Somdev Devvarman of India, against whom he had to recover from a two-set deficit to win in five. In his third-round match, he lost to 10th seed Nicolás Almagro in straight sets.
He played the Indian Wells Masters, where he reached the third round and was eventually eliminated by Richard Gasquet. He then played at the Miami Masters, where he was seeded 21st, but lost his first match in the second round to Brazilian, Thomaz Bellucci. At the Monte-Carlo Masters, he again lost his first match in the first round to South African, Kevin Anderson. He continued to play at the Madrid Masters, where he won his first-round match against Sam Querrey, but was eliminated in the second round by eventual semifinalist, Tomáš Berdych. He then played at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, where he reached the quarterfinals with consecutive wins over two top-10 players, Richard Gasquet and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. He lost to Roger Federer in the quarterfinals. Federer said: "He obviously has a big game, unconventional shot selection at times, but really fun to watch... I've got to be careful."
At the French Open, he reached the third round, where he was eliminated in four sets by Stanislas Wawrinka.
At Wimbledon, he defeated Kyle Edmund, Radek Štěpánek and Nicolás Almagro for a spot in the round of 16 and Jürgen Melzer for a spot in his first career Grand Slam quarterfinal. He then beat fellow Pole Łukasz Kubot in straight sets, becoming the first Polish man to reach a Grand Slam semifinal. There, he was beaten by No. 2 and eventual champion Andy Murray in four sets.
He did not reach quarterfinals in his next few tournaments, falling to Fernando Verdasco by retirement in Hamburg Open and Rafael Nadal in two tight sets at the Rogers Cup. Janowicz actually served for the first set. His next result was a straight-set loss to James Blake in the Cincinnati Open first round.
Jerzy performed disappointingly in the US Open, falling to world No. 247 Máximo González in straight sets, suffering from a back injury. His back injury caused him to withdraw from next few tournaments. He returned in October to reach the quarterfinals at the Stockholm Open, where he lost to Ernests Gulbis in three sets, a player he had beaten in the previous year's Wimbledon in a long five-set match. Then he traveled to Valencia, where he reached the quarterfinals as well, losing to eventual runner-up David Ferrer.
Janowicz's last tournament of the year was the Paris Masters, where he had made his breakthrough the previous year. He won his opening meeting with Santiago Giraldo, but did not defend points due to his loss to top seed Rafael Nadal. Janowicz finished the season at No. 21.
2014: Foot injury, and out of top 50Edit
Janowicz was to partner Agnieszka Radwańska in the Hopman Cup, the annual international mixed-team tournament in Perth, Australia, but was unable to do so due to a foot injury.

At Roland Garros, Janowicz defeated Victor Estrella Burgos and Jarkko Nieminen, then lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the third round.
Before Wimbledon, Janowicz played at Halle Open in Germany and at the Boodles Challenge in Buckinghamshire, England. At Wimbledon, he defeated Somdev Devvarman and Lleyton Hewitt, then lost to Tommy Robredo in five sets. This third-round loss to Robredo would mean a loss of 610 ranking points, and a significant drop in ranking, bringing him down to No. 51. Following Wimbledon, Janowicz competed at the Swedish Open in Bastad, where he was forced to retire in the first round due to a left foot injury. Subsequently, he entered the German Open Tennis Championships in Hamburg, where he was defeated by Alexandr Dolgopolov in the second round.

2016: Knee injury and Rio Summer OlympicsEdit
Jerzy Janowicz began his season at the 2016 Australian Open where he faced John Isner in the first round. He lost in straight sets. Subsequently, due to an ongoing struggle with a knee injury he was forced to withdraw from all of the tournaments in February.
In March, Janowicz was originally expected to play Poland's first Davis Cup World Group tie, but two days before the event he had to undergo tests on his injured knee. In the end, he was forced to miss the tie, and Poland lost to Argentina 3–2. Due to the injury, Janowicz missed both the Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells and Miami. The knee injury was another in a long line of injuries for Janowicz. A back injury initially stopped his climb toward the top of the tennis world in 2013. A foot injury followed in 2014. With the knee injury and unable to play during the first six months of the season, Janowicz managed to stay on the edge of the top 100 ATP ranking while maintaining his frozen ranking of No. 94.
In July Janowicz participated at the Open Castilla y León ATP Challenger Tournament in Segovia, Spain, where he lost to Luca Vanni in the first round. Following the match Janowicz stated: "I have been out for eight months and I haven't touched the racket for five months". He also added that he hoped of not injuring his knee again during the match.
In August, Janowicz competed at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he lost to Gilles Müller in the first round. Janowicz came back to the ATP tour starting with the US Open. In the opening match, he lost to Novak Djokovic, but managed to take a set off the defending champion before falling in a competitive match on Arthur Ashe Stadium. "It's never easy to play against Djokovic. It doesn't matter where or when or what shape I'm in," said Janowicz. "I was just trying to play my best tennis. I was actually a little bit unlucky because I had quite a few chances to take the first set."
Following U.S. Open Janowicz returned to the ATP Challenger Tour. He decided to primarily play in Challengers to gain match play and rebuild confidence in his game. "My rehab was long because I got injured during last year's US Open and then tried to play through it at the end of the season, which was quite stupid on my part," he said. "The doctors said it wouldn't be easy to come back and there was a chance I might not be able to, but I was still hoping to get better. Now, I'm just trying to get back in shape again." To improve his game Janowicz chose to compete at the Challenger event in Genova, Italy. Showing that his knee can withstand plenty of time on court, he prevailed in a long three-set match over Lorenzo Sonego. He then defeated No. 2 seed Horacio Zeballos, Gianluca Mager, Carlos Berlocq and Nicolás Almagro to win his first tournament of the season. Next Janowicz participated in the Pekao Szczecin Open Challenger tournament in his homeland Poland and then competed at the Open d'Orléans in France, where he was a finalist last year. He ended the season with the ATP Challenger tournament in Mons, Belgium, and year-end ranking of No. 280.
2017: 100th match win and hiring of a new coachEdit
At the start of the season Janowicz hired a new coach, former Austrian Davis Cup captain, Günter Bresnik. Before the Australian Open, Janowicz participated at ATP Auckland Open in New Zealand. At the first Grand Slam of the year Janowicz faced seventh seed Marin Čilić in the first round. Both players produced an extraordinarily high level of tennis in the first two sets, with Janowicz hitting 23 winners and just nine unforced errors, while Cilic struck 27 winners and only 15 unforced errors. Janowicz required just a single break of serve late in each set to take a commanding two-set lead, but ultimately Cilic rallied from two sets down to prevail in five sets. Janowicz continued at Australian Open with his doubles partner Marcin Matkowski. The Polish team defeated Fabio Fognini and Fernando Verdasco but lost to the top-seeded French team of Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut in the second round. Following Australian Open Janowicz competed at the Open BNP Paribas Banque de Bretagne Challenger Tournament in France as a wild card. Next he played at the ATP Sofia Open, where he lost a tight three-set 2nd-round match to the 2017 Australian Open semifinalist Grigor Dimitrov.
In February Janowicz claimed his sixth ATP Challenger career title at the Trofeo Faip–Perrel in Bergamo, Italy. Janowicz, who entered the main draw with a wild card, eased past Frenchman Quentin Halys in two sets. Janowicz continued at Wrocław Open, where he lost to Jürgen Melzer in the second round. He then participated at the Jalisco Open Challenger Tour event in Guadalajara, Mexico where he lost to Denis Shapovalov in the semifinal. Janowicz played his only clay-court world tour tournament at the 2017 French Open, where he lost to Taro Daniel in the first round.
Janowicz began his grass season with a quarterfinal run at the Stuttgart Open. En route to the last eight, he defeated Russian Andrey Kuznetsov and Bulgarian second seed Grigor Dimitrov. In the quarterfinals, he was defeated by Frenchman Benoît Paire in straight sets. He continued with the 2017 Aegon International Eastbourne. At 2017 Wimbledon Championships he defeated Denis Shapovalov and Lucas Pouille but lost to Benoît Paire in the third round.
In September, Janowicz reached the quarterfinals at the Pekao Szczecin Open, the oldest tennis tournament in Poland. He continued at Stockholm Open where he defeated Pierre-Hugues Herbert to face Grigor Dimitrov for the third time this season. Dimitrov drilled nine aces and did not drop serve defeating Janowicz in a tight two set match.
In November Janowicz competed at the 2017 Bauer Watertechnology Cup in Eckental, where he was seeded 7th. He defeated top seeded Ruben Bemelmans and Matthias Bachinger, then lost to Maximilian Marterer in the final. Next Janowicz made a winning start to Slovak Open, a Challenger event in Bratislava, defeating Norbert Gombos and Bernard Tomic, then lost to Mikhail Kukushkin in the quarterfinals. As a result, Janowicz ended the season ranked No. 122.
Janowicz hasn't played since November 2017 due to knee injury. In April of 2019 the doctors approved his return to training. Preparation will begin in Poland and Austria as he looks to return to competitive action in June or July of this year. When he returns to playing on the tour Janowicz will have a protected ranking of 120 in the world.
In 2009 Janowicz played a major role in Poland's 3–2 Davis Cup win over Great Britain at Liverpool's Echo Arena. Janowicz defeated Daniel Evans but lost to World No. 4 Andy Murray. In 2013 Jerzy Janowicz won the decisive fourth rubber for Poland with Slovenia to secure a Europe/Africa Zone Group I second-round tie against South Africa. Janowicz fended off early resistance to defeat Grega Žemlja in straight sets at Centennial Hall in Wrocław. Earlier Janowicz won with Blaž Kavčič, with the final tie result at 3–2 to Poland.
Janowicz possesses one of the hardest serves in the world, hitting a first serve generally between 130 and 140 mph and often hitting a second serve from 115 to 120 mph. His ball toss is extremely high, even for a man who is 6 feet 8, producing a high trajectory. Janowicz also moves remarkably well considering how big he is, and hits powerful groundstrokes from the back of the court and has an excellent drop shot. He has a double-handed backhand, and is known to hit hard and constantly mix up his game by hitting numerous drop shots, slices and spins.
