Career[edit]

Juniors[edit]

As a junior Sugita compiled a win/loss record of 34–19 (and 26–18 in doubles), reaching as high as No. 73 in the combined world rankings in February 2006. He competed in singles and doubles at the Australian Open in both 2005 and 2006, reaching the singles second round of the latter.

2012[edit]

Yūichi started his 2012 campaign by making it to the quarterfinals of the Chennai Open before falling to Nicolás Almagro in three close sets, knocking out eighth seed Oliver Rochus on the way.[2]

2014[edit]

In June, Yūichi qualified for Wimbledon by defeating Marco Chiudinelli of Switzerland, 6-4, 6-2, 7-5. It marked the first time he qualified for a Grand Slam after 17 failed qualifying campaigns dating back to 2009. He had previously reached the final round of qualifying at Slams four times, and he dropped decisive sets in three of those matches.[3]
