Édouard Roger-Vasselin (French pronunciation: ​[e.dwaʁ ʁɔ.ʒe vas.lɛ̃]; born 28 November 1983) is a male tennis player from France. He won the men's doubles title at Roland Garros in 2014, partnering Julien Benneteau. He is the son of 1983 French Open semifinalist Christophe Roger-Vasselin.

Career[edit]

2007[edit]

At the 2007 French Open he reached the third round, as a wildcard, after a second-round victory against Czech Radek Štěpánek in five sets, 3–6, 6–1, 0–6, 6–4, 6–4. He also reached the third round at Wimbledon, beating 24th seed Juan Ignacio Chela in straight sets along the way, and made the top 100 for the first time as a result. On 16 July 2007 he reached a career-best ranking of 82.

2009[edit]

At the 2009 Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships, Roger-Vasselin advanced through the qualifying draw to set up a first round match with 2009 US Open champion Juan Martín del Potro. Ranked no. 189 at the time, Roger-Vasselin stunned the world no. 5, 6–4, 6–4. The match was Roger-Vasselin's first ATP Tour level victory of the season. Roger-Vasselin then defeated Austrian Jürgen Melzer to advance to the third round, where he lost to former world no. 1 Lleyton Hewitt in straight sets.

2012[edit]

Roger-Vasselin US Open 2012

In 2012, Roger-Vasselin had considerable success on the ATP Tour in doubles. He won tournaments in Montpellier, Marseille, and Metz, all partnered with Nicolas Mahut. He also made it to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time teamed with James Cerretani. They were defeated by the eventual champions Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen in five sets.

2013[edit]

At the DelRay Beach International Championships, Roger-Vasselin defeated four opponents including top seed John Isner to reach his first ATP tournament final. He lost to Ernests Gulbis for the title. In doubles, he won two titles, at the Hall of Fame Classic in Newport, Rhode Island partnering Nicolas Mahut and in Atlanta partnering Dutchman Igor Sijsling.

He made the semifinals in doubles at Wimbledon partnering Rohan Bopanna.

Vasselin made a breakthrough in the indoor part of the season when he has reached semifinals of the ATP 500 event in Basel, upsetting home favorite Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round. He lost to Juan Martín del Potro, after winning the first set. He finished the year a career-high no. 53.[1]

2014[edit]

Roger-Vasselin had a good beginning to his singles campaign, reaching the final in Chennai (l. to Stan Wawrinka). He reached the quarterfinals in Montpellier and Marseille, losing to Jerzy Janowicz and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, respectively. He also reached the quarterfinals on grass in Eastbourne, losing to Denis Istomin. The rest of his singles season was relatively disappointing.

He and doubles partner Julien Benneteau, however, had a very successful season. They reached the semifinals in Sydney, being eliminated by Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjić. At the Australian Open, they went down in the round of 16 to Max Mirnyi and Mikhail Youzhny. They had another semifinal showing in Rotterdam, losing to Jean-Julien Rojer and Horia Tecău.

The pair won the title in Marseille in February, beating Paul Hanley and Jonathan Marray in the final. Another quarterfinal followed in Acapulco, where they lost to Treat Huey and Dominic Inglot. Then, they went out in the round of 16 in both Indian Wells and Miami. The pair made another quarterfinal, this time at a Masters 1000 event, in Monte Carlo, losing to the Bryan brothers. They followed this up with a semifinal appearance in Nice.

The highlight of his year was the French Open, which he and Benneteau won against the Spanish pair of Marcel Granollers and Marc López.

On grass, they made the semifinals of the Queen's Club tournament, losing to Jamie Murray and John Peers. They followed this up with a quarterfinal appearance at Wimbledon, where they lost to the French pair of Michaël Llodra and Nicolas Mahut.

On the hard-court North American swing, they reached the quarterfinals (l. to Nestor and Zimonjić) in Toronto, and the semifinals in Cincinnati (l. to Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock).

In Shanghai, they reached the final, losing again to the Bryan brothers.
