Born in 1999, the Frenchman Corentin Moutet played the third round at the Roland Garros and the US Open, while in Australia and Paris he never went beyond the second game. In his still very young career he reached the final in Doha last year, where he was stopped by the Russian Andrey Rublev with a score of 6-2 7-6.
Already at number 67 in the world, today Moutet occupies the 91st step of the ATP ranking. At the last Us Open in Flushing Meadows, Corentin beat our Stefano Travaglia in three sets before falling with Matteo Berrettini for 7-6 4-6 6-4 6-3.
At Wimbledon he went out immediately against Aljaz Bedene, who dismissed him with a score of 6-4 6-4 6-0. In a recent interview also published by the French website We Love Tennis, Moutet, who is left-handed in tennis, talked about his life as a right-handed, a bit like Rafael Nadal.
Corentin Moutet reveals his resemblance to Rafael Nadal
The Frenchman said: "In fact there is no explanation, the only reason that comes to mind is that I was playing tennis before writing, I must have been about three years old.
The first time I hit a ball it was with my left hand, so it was. That's all." Moutet also took part in the last edition of the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati, where he passed the qualifiers by beating Vasek Pospisil and Alexei Popyrin, only to be stopped by Reilly Opelka in three halves.
The 2021 Laver Cup was won for the fourth time in a row by Team Europe, who got the better of Team World with a resounding 14-1. In Boston Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic were absent, but Danill Medvedev and his teammates do not seem to have missed the three great champions at all.
Djokovic, who failed his Grand Slam feat this year, has already made it known that he is giving up on the Indian Wells event.
