Pablo Carreño Busta (born 12 July 1991) is a Spanish professional tennis player.[1][2][3]

Career[edit]

Juniors[edit]

Carreño reached as high as No. 6 in the combined junior world rankings in February 2009.[4]

Pro tour[edit]

His first appearance in an ATP tour tournament was in Barcelona in 2011, where he lost in the first round to Benoît Paire.[5]

He has reached 18 singles finals competing in ITF Futures tournaments; and won eleven of these: one in 2009,[6] one in 2010,[7][8] three in 2011,[9][10][11] and six in 2013.[12][13][14][15][16][17] He also won two challenger titles from two finals in 2011, and at this point reached a career high singles ranking of no. 133.[5] He missed the majority of the 2012 season due to injury, and underwent surgery on his back later that year.[18] Carreño returned to action towards the latter stages of 2012, after five months of recovery, and played in four Futures tournaments to end the year, all of which were in Morocco, although he did not progress past the semi-final stage in any of the four.[19] He ended the year with a singles ranking of no. 715.[19]

After a strong start to the opening three months of 2013, winning 42 out of 43 matches on the ITF Circuit, Carreño entered the qualification stage of the 2013 Grand Prix Hassan II in April, held in Casablanca, Morocco.[5] He won his three qualifying matches, and then proceeded to beat first seed and two-time Grand Prix Hassan II champion, Pablo Andújar, 6–4, 2–6, 6–3.[20] He lost in the following round to eventual runner-up, Kevin Anderson.[21] Later on that month, Carreño reached the semi-final stage of the 2013 Portugal Open, again progressing through the qualification rounds, before ultimately losing to Stanislas Wawrinka in three sets.[22]

Carreño participated in his first ever Grand Slam tournament when he was a qualifier at the 2013 French Open. He won his three qualification matches, before losing to Roger Federer in straight sets in the opening round.[23]

2016: Breakthrough and first ATP singles titles[edit]

In April, Carreño Busta reached his second ATP final at ATP Estoril after defeating Benoît Paire. He was defeated in the finals by compatriot Nicolás Almagro. In August, he won his first ever ATP singles title at the Winston-Salem Open, defeating compatriot Roberto Bautista Agut in the final. This meant he also entered the top 40 of the ATP Rankings for the first time at World No. 39.

2017: French Open quarterfinal, Indian Wells semifinal and Top 20 debut[edit]

After a quarterfinal appearance in Sydney, Carreño Busta reached the third round of the Australian Open losing to Denis Istomin.[24] He also made the semifinals of the doubles alongside Guillermo García López.[25] In Buenos Aires, he lost to the eventual champion Alexandr Dolgopolov in straight sets in the semifinals.[26] The following week, Carreño Busta reached his first ATP 500 final at the Rio Open, saving a match point against rising teen Casper Ruud en route[27] before losing to Dominic Thiem.[28] However, he won the doubles title with Pablo Cuevas.[28] In Brasil, he fell to Cuevas, his doubles partner, the two-time defending and eventual champion in the semifinals.[29]

At the BNP Paribas Open in March, Carreño Busta avenged his defeat to Cuevas, saving two match points in the process to advance to his first ATP Masters 1000 semifinal[30] where he lost to world No. 3 Stan Wawrinka in straight sets.[31] As a result, he rose to a new career high of world No. 19. He received a first round bye at the Miami Open but was upset by Federico Delbonis in the second. In Spain's quarterfinal Davis Cup tie against Serbia, he lost both of his matches to Viktor Troicki in singles and to Troicki and Nenad Zimonjić in doubles.

Carreño Busta began his clay season at the Monte-Carlo Masters, where he lost to world No. 2 Novak Djokovic in three sets in the third round.[32] He reached the same round in Barcelona, losing to lucky loser Yuichi Sugita who had defeated Tommy Robredo and Richard Gasquet in the first two rounds.[33] After early losses in Madrid and Rome, Carreño Busta played his maiden grand slam quarterfinal at the French Open, upsetting eleventh seed Grigor Dimitrov in straight sets[34] and fifth seed Milos Raonic in five sets en route.[35]

He currently resides in Barcelona.
