Pablo Carreño Busta Facts

  1. He had started playing tennis from the age of 6 but had played almost exclusively on hardcourts until moving to Barcelona at the age of 15.
  2. In his 4th round match of the 2019 Australian Open, against Kei Nishikori, he was involved in an ugly confrontation with the umpire. He was leading the final set tiebreaker until 8–5 when a late call from a linesperson led to a heated argument between him and the umpire. The point was awarded to Kei and it changed the momentum of the match with Kei eventually winning it with a 10-8 lead in the tiebreaker. After the end of the grueling match, which had lasted for more than 5 hours, Pablo had left the court without shaking the umpire’s hand and had thrown his bag down in disgust, leaving the stadium amidst a booing crowd. He had to apologize for his behavior in the post-match press conference.
  3. He was facing an uphill task in the 4th round of the 2020 US Open when he had to face the then world number 1 Novak Djokovic, who had not lost a match until then in the calendar year. Luck favored him immensely when Novak unintentionally hit a lineswoman in the throat with a ball, an act that disqualified him and handed Pablo an unexpected passage to the next round.
  4. He had been voted the ‘ATP Most Improved Player of the Year’ in 2013.
  5. He is a lifelong supporter of the Spanish professional soccer club Sporting de Gijón.
