Arthur Cazaux parents have kept themselves out of the public spotlight. The French player has acknowledged his parents’ support in furthering his tennis career in many of his interviews.
Hailing from Montpellier, Cazaux started playing tennis at three years old. Cazaux has always mentioned that Rafael Nadal was the player he tried to imitate as a kid.
The youngster made his ATP debut in 2020 and a year later won his first match at the 2021 Geneva Open. It was in 2021 that Arthur made his grand slam debut at the French Open as a wildcard.
And since then, he has come a long way. Last year, he made his US Open debut as a lucky loser but lost to Andrey Rublev in the first round.
Arthur has started this year with a bang. The world no.122 has caused a sensation by taking down the world no.8 Holger Rune in the ongoing Australian Open. The 21-year-old won 7-6 (4), 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 on Margaret Court Arena.
Arthur Cazaux Parents: First Tennis Player From His Family
Previously, in an interview, Arthur Cazaux said his parents weren’t athletes but always had a knack for sports. He said his father is a crazy sports fan.
Sitting on the couch and watching Roland Garros with his father was one of the ways how Arthur picked up the sport.
He was three years old when he first saw his icon Rafael Nadal play, and since then, the passion for tennis has been burning inside the youngster.
Soon after watching tennis for the first time, Arthur asked his parents to buy him a tennis racket, and he started practicing by hitting against the wall at his home.
And while he was practicing, Arthur would try to imitate Nadal. Despite not coming from a family filled with athletes, Arthur has always mentioned his parents’ support in his tennis journey.
His parents have kept themselves away from the public limelight. The tennis player’s parents preferred that Arthur stay in France and furthered his career rather than going abroad.
When Arthur reached the 2020 Australian Open Junior finals, his mother was asked for her comments on his performance.
Ms. Cazaux said she was proud of his achievements and that Arthur’s good attitude and combativeness had helped him so far in his career.
