Pablo Andújar Alba (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpaβlo anˈduxaɾ ˈalβa];[2] born 23 January 1986) is a professional male tennis player from Spain. Andujar began playing tennis at 6 years old and has won four ATP Tour singles titles, reaching a career-high singles ranking of world No. 32 in July 2015. He trained in Valencia, Spain at the Tennis Club El Collao.

Between March 2016 and April 2017, Andújar underwent three elbow surgeries. He reached the fourth round of the 2019 US Open.

Career[edit]

Juniors[edit]

As a junior, Andujar compiled a singles win/loss record of 67–16 (and 48–14 in doubles), reaching as high as No. 5 in the combined junior world rankings in June 2004.

Junior Slam results:

Australian Open: -
French Open: QF (2004)
Wimbledon: 1R (2004)
US Open: 1R (2004)

ATP Tour[edit]

He competed at the 2010 Australian Open, but lost to Gilles Simon in the first round. At the French Open (Roland Garros), he defeated Robert Kendrick in the first round, but lost in the second round against Paul-Henri Mathieu of France in three sets. In 2010, he made it to the final of the BCR Open Romania, where he lost to Juan Ignacio Chela.

In 2011, Andujar won his first ATP title at the Grand Prix Hassan II tournament in Morocco, defeating Italian Potito Starace in the final. The Spaniard reached two more ATP-level finals during the 2011 season, one respectively in Stuttgart and the other at the BCR Open Romania.

In January 2012, he was a finalist in doubles with Carlos Berlocq in Viña del Mar, Chile. In February, he was a quarterfinalist in the Abierto Mexicano Telcel. In April, he won his second title in Morocco, defeating Albert Ramos Viñolas in the final.

In May 2013, as a wild-card and as world No. 113 in the ATP Rankings, he reached the semifinals of an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament for the first time in his career in Madrid where he faced Rafael Nadal and lost 6–0, 6–4. His road to the semifinals saw him defeat 10th seed Marin Čilić, John Isner, Daniel Gimeno-Traver and 14th seed Kei Nishikori.

Between March 2016 and April 2017, Andújar underwent three elbow surgeries with three different doctors and considered retirement if the third surgery didn't work. Upon his return in January 2018, Andujar lost five of his first six matches at all levels.[3]

In April 2018, Andújar won his fourth ATP tournament and his first for four years, beating Kyle Edmund in straight sets in the final in Marrakesh, became the lowest-ranked tour-level titlist since then-World No. 550 Lleyton Hewitt at Adelaide in 1998.[3]

In September 2019, Andújar reached the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time, at the US Open.[3]
