Ben Shelton, born on October 9, 2002, is an American professional tennis player. He initially did not want to play tennis, so he played football.

His parents never pressured him to join tennis, and he eventually started playing the game when he was 12. 

During his freshman year, Ben helped the Florida Gators win their first national team championship in tennis with his victory at the fifth singles.

The next year, he earned the men’s singles title at the 2022 NCAA Division I Tennis Championships. Likewise, he won the title of ITA National Player of the Year.

After turning professional, Shelton reached his highest ranking in doubles on April 3, 2023. Following that, his best position for singles was 35th in the world on May 8.
