Alex Corretja was born in Barcelona, April 11, 1974, and is a Spanish television commentator and former tennis player.
Corretja made his ATP tournament appearance in 1992, when he debuted at his home tournament. His climb to the top positions has been long but steady. Thanks to a solid game from the baseline, which was exalted on clay, Corretja collected excellent results that led him to be number 2 in the world in 1999, his best ranking.
In total Corretja won 438 matches out of 719 played, which earned him 17 tournaments. The most prestigious of him are undoubtedly the title won in Rome in 1997, where he defeated Marcelo Ríos, the Tennis Masters Cup won in 1998 by beating his countryman Carlos Moya, and the title at Indian Wells in 2000 against Thomas Enqvist.
Corretja also reached the final of Roland Garros on two occasions: in 1998 he was beaten by Moyá, while in 2001 he lost to Gustavo Kuerten. In 2000 he won the Davis Cup with Spain.
