Paul Gerard Capdeville Castro (born 2 April 1983 in Santiago) is a Chilean former tennis player.

Tennis career[edit]

In May 2009, he achieved a career-high singles ranking of World No. 76.

At the 2006 French Open, Capdeville had a shoving incident with Mario Ančić, at the end of his second round match. The two players had to be separated by the chair umpire.[1] Ančić and Capdeville were each fined US$3,000 for the incident.[2]

Capdeville's best showing at an ATP event to date came at the 2009 Estoril Open, where he reached the semifinals. Other notable results include the quarterfinals at Memphis (2006), Washington (2007), Indianapolis (2008) and Viña del Mar (2009).

Capdeville has won ten challenger tournaments: Bogotá (2005), Florianópolis (2007), Binghamton and Aracajú (2008), Binghamton (2009), Guayaquil (2010), Guadalajara (2011), Binghamton (2011), Santiago (2012), and São Paulo (2013).

Capdeville was part of the Chilean Davis Cup team. In his first competitive match, he beat Austria's Stefan Koubek in five sets.[3]

Capdeville announced his retirement after playing at a Davis Cup tie against Paraguay in 2014.[4]
