Alexander Mikhailovich Kudryavtsev (Russian: Александр Михайлович Кудрявцев; born 26 October 1985) is a Russian professional tennis player who has played professionally since 2003. He made his breakthrough in 2008, playing in his first top-level international tournaments on the ATP tour, having spent time playing in "Challenger" and "Futures" events. He reached his career-high singles ranking of # 117 in February 2015 and career-high doubles ranking of 70 on 7 November 2011.

Professional career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Kudryavtsev reached the quarter-finals in a futures event in Bucharest in 2003. In 2004 he advanced to the second round in three futures events, and won a doubles challenger title. In 2005 he was a semi-finalist in a Beijing futures tournament, and reached the quarterfinals in Korolev (Russia) and Minsk (Belarus). In 2006 he became a finalist for the first time in Uzbekistan, as well as reaching the semi-finals once and the quarter-finals twice in other events.

In 2007 he started by winning his first Futures title in India and followed it up by winning a second in Belarus in May. In the second half of the season he was a quarter- or semi-finalist in six Challenger events with a 15–11 win-loss record. He also reached 9 finals (5 wins with three different partners) in doubles competitions and finished the year ranked No. 96 in doubles.

2008[edit]

Kudryavtsev began the year positively by reaching the second round of his maiden top-level tournament. After coming through qualifying he beat Prakash Amritraj of India 6–3 4–6 7–6(8). In the second round he faced former World No. 1 Carlos Moyà but lost in a hard-fought game 6–3 6–7(4), 6–2. His next international event was at Estoril in Portugal in April where he lost in the first round to France's Thierry Ascione (ranked #82) 6–1 6–4.

He competed in his first Masters Series event at Toronto in Canada in July. In the first round he upset No. 33 ranked Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6–2 7–6(7) but he could not repeat this in the second round as he lost to Frenchman Richard Gasquet (ranked #12) 7–5 6–3.

2012[edit]

He married his wife Rushana on 16 March 2007 and they had a son named Egor (born 6 August 2007)[1]
