Horia Tec?u (Romanian pronunciation: ['hori.a te'k?w];[2] born January 19, 1985)[3] is a Romanian professional tennis player who specialises in doubles.

He is a three-time Grand Slam champion, having won the 2015 Wimbledon Championships and 2017 US Open alongside Jean-Julien Rojer in men's doubles, as well as the 2012 Australian Open with Bethanie Mattek-Sands in mixed doubles. Tec?u has also reached five further Grand Slam finals: at the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Wimbledon Championships with Robert Lindstedt in men's doubles, and at the 2014 and 2016 Australian Opens in mixed doubles.

He reached his career-high doubles ranking of World No. 2 in November 2015, shortly before winning the 2015 ATP World Tour Finals with Rojer. Tec?u has won 38 doubles titles on the ATP Tour, including three at Masters 1000 level. He also won the silver medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, alongside compatriot Florin Mergea.

Career

2010

On January 16, 2010, Tec?u won his first ATP doubles title at the 2010 Heineken Open in Auckland, New Zealand, partnering Marcus Daniell.

Horia showed a solid game in the beginning of 2010 and won two doubles titles, (one Challenger and one ATP World Tour 250 Series), at Marrakech and Casablanca, which confirmed his good form.

He won his third doubles title at 's-Hertogenbosch and his second with partner Robert Lindstedt (his first with him came in Casablanca).

At the 2010 Wimbledon Championships, Tec?u reached, for the first time in his career, a Grand Slam doubles final. He and his partner, Robert Lindstedt, defeated the pair of Tommy Robredo and Marcel Granollers in four sets in the quarter finals, qualifying for the semifinals where they defeated the duo of Juan Ignacio Chela and Eduardo Schwank. In the final Tec?u and Lindstedt were defeated by the pair of Jürgen Melzer and Philipp Petzschner.

At Wimbledon in the mixed doubles, he and his partner, fellow Romanian Monica Niculescu, lost in the second round to Marcelo Melo and Rennae Stubbs.

Horia Tec?u at the 2010 US Open

At the 2010 Swedish Open, Lindstedt and Tec?u won their third title together after winning in the final against Andreas Seppi and Simone Vagnozzi.

At the 2010 Farmers Classic, Tec?u and Lindstedt were defeated by Eric Butorac and Jean-Julien Rojer in the quarterfinals.

At the 2010 Legg Mason Tennis Classic Tec?u and Lindstedt were defeated by the pair of Marcos Baghdatis and Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round on the doubles category.

The fifth title of Tec?u's career and fourth partnering Lindstedt came at the 2010 Pilot Pen Tennis. The final saw them beating Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi, this being their second title win against the Indian-Pakistani pair.

2011

In 2011 Horia started the year alongside his partner, Robert Lindstedt, at the Brisbane International. They had a good start and reached the final of the tournament but a calf injury of Lindstedt forced them to retire after just one set and thus losing the match to the Luká? Dlouhý / Paul Hanley pair. At the Heineken Open Horia was the defending champion and seeded No. 1 with Robert but they were forced to withdrew due to the Swede's left calf injury sustained just days earlier.

At the Australian Open Horia and Robert were eleventh seed but despite leading 1-0 in the first round match against wildcards Colin Ebelthite and Adam Feeney they were forced to retire yet again due to Robert's injury.

After the year's first Grand Slam, Horia decided to give his partner, Robert, time to recover and paired with experienced doubles player, Belgian Dick Norman, for the PBZ Zagreb Indoors. This was a successful choice and they reached the tournament final and won it.

Following the Zagreb title, Horia paired for the next two tournaments with Austrian Julian Knowle and Pakistani Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi but with little success, exiting both competitions after the first round. He then paired with fellow countryman Victor H?nescu for their biggest doubles title to date, the 500 point Abierto Mexicano Telcel. In the final they beat Brazilians Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares in straight sets.

In April, Horia and Lindstedt defended their title in Casablanca, after an impressive display and losing just one set in the first round of the tournament.

He had a good grasscourt season with two finals together with Lindstedt, losing in the final of Wimbledon to the Bryan twins.

At the return to clay he defended his win at Swedish Open, again with Lindstedt.

2012

Horia Tec?u playing at the 2012 BRD N?stase ?iriac Trophy

Horia Tec?u and Bethanie Mattek-Sands from US won the Australian Open mixed doubles final on 29 January.[4] He reached the semifinals in men's doubles with Robert Lindstedt and lost to Bob and Mike Bryan in a close 3-setter. Together they reached the final of a Masters even for the first time in Madrid. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Tec?u and teammate Adrian Ungur lost in the first round.[5]

Horia Tec?u and Robert Lindstedt separated in September 2012 after a fruitful three-year relationship.[6]

2013

Horia Tec?u paired up with Max Mirnyi for 2013. They reached five finals and won three of them.

2015-2017: Two Grand Slam Doubles Titles, ATP Tour Finals and Masters 1000 title

Horia Tec?u and Jean-Julien Rojer won 2015 Wimbledon defeating Jamie Murray and John Peers in the final and the 2017 US Open (tennis) defeating Feliciano Lopez and Marc Lopez in the final.

Tec?u was choosen by Sony Pictures to dub Charles Darwin voice in Romanian in the animated movie " The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!".
