Personal life

Tessah Andrianjafitrimo's father, Teddy Andrianjafitrimo, was born in Madagascar. Teddy was an excellent, amateur tennis player. He was a tennis champion of Madagascar and Africa. He did not become a professional tennis player because he lacked the financial support to do so. Teddy immigrated to France and worked as a tennis club coach. Teddy is currently Tessah's coach. Tessah was born in Montpellier and has been living in Nogaro since 2010. She has two younger siblings.[1]



Andrianjafitrimo started playing tennis when she was five years old. She was the 2014 national girls' champion of France in the 15-16 year-olds category.[1] She had a career-high ITF junior combined ranking of world no. 29, attained on 14 September 2015.[2]


Andrianjafitrimo made her ITF Women's Circuit debut at the $25,000 indoor hardcourt tournament held in September 2013 in Clermont-Ferrand, France; she only entered that tournament's singles event, losing in the first qualifying round. She played a total of seven ITF Women's Circuit tournaments in 2013 and 2014.[3]


Andrianjafitrimo made her WTA Tour and Grand Slam singles debut thanks to a wild card at the 2015 French Open qualifying, where she defeated Patricia Mayr-Achleitner in the first round before losing to Olivia Rogowska in the second round.

Andrianjafitrimo also made her WTA Tour singles main-draw debut at the BGL Luxembourg Open thanks to a wild card, losing her first-round match to Tatjana Maria. Three weeks later, Andrianjafitrimo made her WTA 125K series singles debut at the 2015 Open de Limoges; she entered the singles main draw as a wild card and lost her first-round match to Carina Witthöft.

Andrianjafitrimo received a wild card for the women's singles main draw of the 2016 French Open (that was her Grand Slam singles main draw debut), where she lost 0-6, 0-6 to the unseeded Wang Qiang in the first round. She also played in the girls' singles of the French Open, where she was defeated in the second round of the main draw by Lucrezia Stefanini.


At the French Open, Andrianjafitrimo failed to convert two match points in the third set of the singles qualifying first-round match against Rebecca Marino; Marino eventually won the match 6-7, 6-4, 7-5.[4]
