Kenny de Schepper (born May 29, 1987) is a French professional tennis player.[1]

Tennis career[edit]

2011[edit]

While not having any wins, he has several runner-up finishes in ITF Futures events and has a runner-up finish at an ATP Challenger event – the 2011 Open EuroEnergie de Quimper, where he lost to his compatriot David Guez in the final.[2]

He won his first ATP Challenger title at the 2011 Open Diputación Ciudad de Pozoblanco event against Iván Navarro.[2]

Kenny made the main draw of the 2011 Wimbledon Championships. In the 2011 Wimbledon Championships qualifiers he defeated Ádám Kellner (Q1), Matthew Ebden (Q2), and Simone Bolelli (Q3).[3][4][5]

2012[edit]

In October 2012, de Schepper won consecutive Challenger tournaments, taking him to a career high ranking of 123 in singles.[6] The first of the two Challenger victories came in Mons, having qualified for the tournament, before securing a title in Rennes a week later, not dropping a set throughout the competition.[6]

2013[edit]

De Schepper once again played at Wimbledon and this time progressed to the fourth round, the first time he had made the last 16 at a Grand Slam tournament, courtesy of wins over Paolo Lorenzi, Marin Čilić (by walkover) and Juan Mónaco. De Schepper faced Fernando Verdasco in the round of 16 and lost in straight sets.

At the US Open, he lost in the first round to American Bradley Klahn in four sets with three tie-breaks.
