Arthur Cazaux – The Next Generation of French Talent Has Arrived

France seems to be producing a steady stream of very talented youngsters right now. Arthur Cazaux is one of them, and this 20-year-old has recently cracked the top 200 in the ATP rankings. Because of this, he has been awarded a wildcard into the main draw of Roland Garros this year, which is incredibly exciting for the youngster. 

How Old Is Arthur Cazaux?

Born on August 23rd, 2002, Arthur Cazaux is currently 20 years of age. He was born in Montpellier, France, but he now resides in Les Matelles, France. Cazaux was ranked as high as number 4 in the world as a junior, and he first picked up a racket at just 3 years of age. He worked on his craft against the wall in his early days because nobody in his immediate family played the sport.

However, once he started practising at an actual club with other solid players, Cazaux quickly improved and began competing in France. Over the years, his style of play and tenacity has earned him the nickname of ‘The Jaguar’. 

Arthur Cazaux Career Stats

This young man became a professional player, officially, in 2019. He picked up his first ATP points in October 2019, and this produced a ranking of 1707 in the world. Since then, Cazaux has rarely looked back. He has performed well at the ITF and Challenger levels over the last four years, and his highest career ranking was 191 – achieved in April 2023. As for his official win/loss ratio at the ATP level, this stands at 1/2.

Note that this ratio is so condensed as his career stats are based on main draw appearances, of which he’s only had two.

Arthur Cazaux Ranking and Roland Garros Standing

We mentioned above that Cazaux has been ranked as high as 191 as a career-best. But at the moment, he is ranked 193, although this will improve after the French Open. That’s essentially guaranteed as he has been awarded a wildcard into the main draw, although we do not yet know who he is playing. 

But moving to what we do know, we can give you an overview of his rankings since turning professional in 2019:

  • 2019 – 1053
  • 2020 – 733
  • 2021 – 284
  • 2022 – 281

As long as he does take to the court in the French Open main draw, he will earn a decent number of points to boost his current ranking. 

A Loss to the experienced fellow countryman French Open Round 1

Following Thursday’s French Open draw, Cazaux knew that he would face world number 61 Corentin Moutet in an all-French first round tie. While Cazaux did all right and took a set of Moutet, the older Frenchmen showed quality and experience and elimianted Cazaux 3-1 (6-1, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4).
