Quentin Halys Facts
- Quentin, at the youth tier, in the doubles format, had reached the final of both the 2013 Junior US Open as well as the 2014 Junior Australian Open.
- He consequently reached a combined (singles and doubles) career-high world junior ranking of number 3 on March 31, 2014.
- His luck finally turned when he won the doubles event of the 2014 Junior French Open. In the singles format, he had reached the final of the 2014 Junior US Open.
- At the 2023 Miami Open, on his tournament debut, Quentin reached the 4th round of the singles section at an ATP Masters 1000 (an annual series of 9 prestigious tennis tournaments featuring the top-ranked players on the ATP Tour (a worldwide top-tier tennis tour for men organized by the ATP)) event for the first time in his career.
- On the annual ATP Tour calendar, these 9 ATP Masters 1000 tournaments fall only behind the 4 Grand Slam tournaments and the ATP Finals (the annual season-ending championship of the ATP Tour) in terms of prestige. Before the 2023 Miami Open, Quentin had not won a single match in his career at the ATP Masters 1000 level.
- The very next week, in early April 2023, at the Estoril Open (an ATP Tour 250 event – the lowest tier of tournaments on the ATP Tour), he reached the semi-final stage of a tournament on the ATP Tour for the first time in his career. Before this, Quentin had won only a solitary match at an ATP Tour-level tournament on clay in his entire career – at the 2016 French Open.
- During the 2023 Estoril Open, he defeated Roberto Bautista Agut (2nd round) and Dominic Thiem (quarter-final) in straight sets. As of mid-August 2023, these were Quentin’s only 2 wins against players who have been, at some point in their career, ranked in the ‘Top 10’ of the official ATP singles rankings.
