As a youthEdit

Fucsovics started to play tennis at the age of five. He came through the ranks quickly and at the age of 8 he played in a field 3–4 years older.

In 2003 Fucsovics won his age group National Championship and the Nike Junior Tour. With that he got the chance to represent Hungary on the World Final in Sun City, South Africa. Fucsovics also showed talent in basketball as a youth, but chose to make tennis his career path.

Junior tennisEdit

Fucsovics's first major success came in 2009, when he won the US Open Boys' Doubles title, with Hsieh Cheng-peng of Chinese Taipei. In 2010 he reached the semi-final of the Australian Open Boys' Singles, and a few months later he won the Wimbledon Boys' Singles, defeating qualifier Benjamin Mitchell in a straight-sets final. Fucsovics did not lose a set throughout the entire tournament. He also participated in the doubles' event alongside Czech Libor Salaba, and reached the quarter-finals. Later that year he also reached the semi-final of the 2010 US Open - Boys' Singles, in which he lost to Jack Sock.

Fucsovics was also an integral part of the Hungarian U-18 national tennis team. The team won the prestigious Galea/Valerio Cup in Venice to claim Hungary's first ever boys' European Summer Cups title. The other members of the team were Máté Zsiga and Levente Gödry.

Fucsovics worked his way to No. 1 in the ITF Junior Rankings in July 2010 and as a result entered the Youth Olympics as tournament's top seed. He suffered a surprise loss, however, in the first round, to eventual quarterfinalist Oliver Golding.

Senior careerEdit

Early careerEdit

In 2013 Fucsovics won two Challenger titles, the first in May at the Kunming Open and at the Andria Challenger in November.

In 2016 he qualified for his first Grand Slam at the US Open losing to Nicolás Almagro in three sets in the round of 128.

2017: Top 100 rankingEdit

In 2017 he won two challengers for the first time since 2013 in June, the first during the Internazionali di Tennis Città di Vicenza and the second at Ilkley Challenger. His success at Ilkley saw him win a Wildcard into the Wimbledon 2017 main draw where he lost to the 16th seed Gilles Müller in the opening round. He also reached a career high ranking of 99, breaking into the top 100 for the first time.

In September 2017 he played a pivotal role in Hungary's promotion to the World Group winning 3 rubbers against favourites Russia.

2018: Top 50 ranking; Australian Open fourth round; First ATP titleEdit

In January 2018 Fucsovics won his first match in a Grand Slam main draw, defeating Moldovan Radu Albot in the first round of the 2018 Australian Open. In the second round he upset 13th Seed Sam Querrey, and went on to defeat Nicolás Kicker in round 3 before falling to Roger Federer next round in straight sets.

In May 2018 Fucsovics won his first ATP title by winning the Geneva Open, which is played on a clay court. He also reached a career high ranking of 45, breaking into the top 50 for the first time.

At the 2018 French Open he defeated Vasek Pospisil in straight sets in the first round to set up a second round match against 16th seed Kyle Edmund[2] which he lost in four sets.[3]

2019Edit

In February, Fucsovics reached second ATP Tour final at Sofia Open, where he lost to Daniil Medvedev.
