Partnered with Martin Redlicki, Majchrzak won the 2013 US Open boys' doubles title by defeating Quentin Halys and Frederico Ferreira Silva in the final.

Majchrzak has a career high ATP singles ranking of 84 achieved on 9 September 2019 and a career high ATP doubles ranking of 241 achieved on 8 August 2016.[1]

Tennis career[edit]

2019: Grand Slam Debut and Top 100[edit]

During the 2019 Australian Open, Majchrzak advanced through the qualifying to reach the 1st round. He won the first two sets against a top-10 player Kei Nishikori, but then was forced to retire due to an injury.[2]

In March 2019 Majchrzak celebrated his maiden Challenger triumph at the 2019 Open Harmonie mutuelle in St. Brieuc, France. Two months later he advanced to the 2019 Prosperita Open final with wins over Riccardio Bonadio, Zsombor Piros, No. 5 seeded Dennis Novak and Lloyd Harris to lift his second ATP Challenger trophy.[3]

Kamil Majchrzak played great tennis on grass this season. He made the semifinals of the 2019 Ilkley Trophy Challenger and then qualified for Wimbledon without dropping a set. In the first round at Wimbledon he lost to Fernando Verdasco. At the Hall of Fame Open in Rhode Island he defeated Alastair Gray before losing a three set match to No 1 seed John Isner in the second round.[4]

At the US Open, Majchrzak lost in the final round of qualifying. With the sudden withdrawal of Milos Raonic, he came in as a lucky loser, and defeated Nicolás Jarry and Pablo Cuevas - both in five-set thrillers. He fell to Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets in the third round.

2020[edit]

At the start of the year Majchrzak withdrew from 2020 Australian Open and Maharashtra Open due to a groin injury.[5] In August he returned to tennis and participated at the US Open where he lost to Ernesto Escobedo in the first round. He then transitioned to clay courts and on September 13th, 2020 won his third Challenger title at the 2020 Czech Open. In the final, he defeated top seed and defending champion Pablo Andújar.[6] Majchrzak continued at the 2020 French Open. In the first round he lost to 15th seeded Karen Khachanov.
