CareerEdit

2008Edit

On September 29, Jouan qualified for the first ATP tournament of his career in Metz after beating Fabio Fognini, Prakash Amritraj and Tobias Kamke. Ranked #440, he defeated #51 Agustín Calleri 5–7, 6–1, 6–2 in the first round of the main draw, but lost to fourth-seeded Paul-Henri Mathieu 6–4, 6–4 in the second.

2009Edit

His ranking not allowing him to enter even the qualifications, it looked like Jouan would not participate in Roland Garros that year; but when wild-card John Isner withdrew, the qualifications had already started, so his wild-card went to Jouan.[1] He was drawn against World No. 6 Andy Roddick in the first round, who defeated him 6–2, 6–4, 6–2 without facing a single break point.

2010Edit

In October, Jouan qualified for the first edition of the Open Sud de France in Montpellier by defeating Josselin Ouanna, Andrea Agazzi and Vincent Millot. For his first ATP Tour-level tournament of the year, he was drawn against American Taylor Dent. Despite winning the first set on a tie-break, he fell 6–7, 6–3, 6–4.

2011Edit

In August, Jouan qualified for the second Grand Slam event of his career at the US Open, after defeating Denis Matsukevich 6–2, 6–4, Mitchell Frank 6–3, 4–6, 6–3 and Denis Kudla 6–4, 6–2 in the three rounds of qualifying.
