Clément Morel (born 16 July 1984) is a former professional tennis player from France.

Career[edit]

Morel was the junior champion at the 2002 Australian Open. He defeated countryman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semi-finals, then won the title with a win over Todd Reid in the final.[1] In the juniors event at the 2002 Wimbledon Championships, Morel lost in the second round to Ryan Henry, with a final set scoreline of 24-26, which was a tournament record.[2]

He took part in qualifying for the 2004 French Open and also appeared in an ATP Challenger tournament in Grenoble that year, but otherwise played on the Futures circuit. His two Futures titles came in South Africa in 2006 and the other a 2008 tournament in Belgium.

In 2008 he switched nationalities and began representing the Monaco Davis Cup team. He played two matches, the first was a win over Algerian Slimane Saoudi in 2008 and the other a loss to Finland's Henri Laaksonen the following year.[3][4]
