Karen Abgarovich Khachanov (Russian: Каре́н Абга́рович Хача́нов, IPA: [kɐˈrʲɛn xɐˈtɕanəf]; Armenian: Կարեն Աբգարի Խաչանով; born 21 May 1996) is a Russian tennis player of Armenian descent.[1] He has won 2 ATP singles titles. Khachanov achieved his career-high singles ranking of world No. 26 on 27 August 2018.

For a time, Khachanov was coached by Igor Bitsenko in Moscow and Vedran Martić in Split, Croatia. In 2014 he joined 4Slam Tennis Academy led by Galo Blanco.[2][3] Khachanov parted ways with Blanco in November 2017.[4] Now he trains with his previous coach Vedran Martić.[5]

Career[edit]

Early life[edit]

Karen started playing tennis aged three at kindergarten when his parents put him into the tennis group. His father, Abgar, played volleyball at a very high level before studying medicine, while his mother, Natalia, also studied medicine. He has a sister, Margarita, and a brother, Georgiy. His idols growing up were Marat Safin and Juan Martín del Potro and favourite sports teams are Real Madrid and the Miami Heat.[6]

2013: Davis Cup debut[edit]

Khachanov won the Under-18 European Championship title in July 2013 in Switzerland.[7] At age 17 and 157 days, he became the youngest Russian tennis player in the pro series, surpassing Mikhail Youzhny.[8] Khachanov upset former world No. 8 Janko Tipsarević as a junior at the 2013 Kremlin Cup in Russia. In October, Khachanov defeated Dean O'Brien of South Africa to help Russia advance in the 2013 Davis Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group I.

2014: First Future[edit]

Khachanov lost to Jerzy Janowicz of Poland in the first round of the 2014 Davis Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group I. Khachanov received a wild card entry to the 2014 Sony Open, but lost in the first round to Daniel Gimeno-Traver. Together with Andrey Rublev he won a silver medal in doubles at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics. They lost to Brazilian players Orlando Luz and Marcelo Zormann in the final.

2015: First Challenger[edit]

In September 2015 Khachanov won his first ATP Challenger Tour title in Istanbul, where he was unseeded. In the final he defeated top seed Sergiy Stakhovsky.

2016: First ATP title[edit]

Karen Khachanov at 2016 Erste Bank Open

In 2016 he qualified for the Barcelona Open beating Ramkumar Ramanathan and Marco Trungelliti. He then played his first round match beating Aljaz Bedene from being a set down. Then he proceeded to the second round beating fifth seed Roberto Bautista Agut also in three sets. He eventually lost in the third round to the eleventh seed Alexandr Dolgopolov. He got a wildcard for the Istanbul Open. In his first match he beat Aljaz Bedene for the second time in the month. In his second match he lost to Albert Ramos Vinolas despite winning the first set.

By entering an ATP singles final at the 2016 Chengdu Open, Khachanov became the first Russian since Mikhail Youzhny, who beat David Ferrer in the final at the 2013 Valencia Open 500, to do so.[9] Khachanov won his first ATP tournament there, beating Albert Ramos-Vinolas in three sets.

2017: First Top 10 win, Grand Slam 4th Round[edit]

Khachanov, 2016

Karen reached the second round of the 2017 Australian Open, his best AO result to date. He lost to 20th-ranked Jack Sock. Then he lost five first rounds in a row, interrupting that streak in Indian Wells. In the clay court season Karen showed better results. He went on reaching the quarterfinals of the Barcelona Open and the Lyon Open. At the French Open he got into the 4th Round, his best Grand Slam result to date. On the way he beat 14th-ranked Tomáš Berdych and 22nd-ranked John Isner, but lost to number-one Andy Murray. Karen then got into the semifinals of the Halle Open, ensuring him a seed place in a Grand Slam for the first time. On that tournament he also won his very first grass match on professional level.[10] In the 2017 Wimbledon Championships he was the 30th seed and he reached the 3rd round before losing to 10 time French Open champion Rafael Nadal in straight sets.[11]

2018: Second ATP title & first Masters 1000 semifinal[edit]

Kachanov entered 2018 Australian Open where he lost in second round to Juan Martin Del Potro matching his previous best result at the tournament. In February, he won his second ATP title at Open 13 in Marseille, France. He defeated Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the finals.[12]

In August, Khachanov reached the semifinals of a Masters 1000 tournament for the first time in his career, at the Canadian Open.

Personal life[edit]

In April 2016, he married Veronika Shkliaeva.[13][14]
