Humbert has a career-high ATP singles ranking of 42 achieved on 2 March 2020. He also has a career high ATP doubles ranking of 361 achieved on 14 October 2019.

He holds six Challenger titles and reached the final in three other Challenger events.

At the 2018 US Open, Humbert made his Grand Slam singles debut as a qualifier. He won his first main-draw match by defeating fellow qualifier Collin Altamirano. He then lost in the second round to Stan Wawrinka in four sets.

He won his first ATP 250 main-draw match on home soil at 2018 Moselle Open defeating Bernard Tomic in three sets.

At the 2019 Wimbledon Championships, Humbert reached the fourth round, defeating en route seed No. 16 Gaël Monfils and seed No. 19 Félix Auger-Aliassime to only fall to eventual and defending champion, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in straight sets.

Early life

Humbert was born in Metz, the son of Eric and Anne, and has one sister, Léa. Both parents are butchers and caterers in Metz.



When Humbert was 12, he moved to Poitiers to train with the French Tennis Federation. However, he suffered a string of injuries which prevented him from playing for a year and a half.[2]

In 2015, he reached the Abierto Juvenil Mexicano doubles final with Geoffrey Blancaneaux. His career-high junior ranking is No. 18, achieved in January 2016.

2017: First Futures title

In September 2017, Humbert claimed his first Futures title in Bagnères-de-Bigorre where he had received a wild card. A week later, he was again awarded a wild card into the Moselle Open where he reached the second round but fell in three sets to Simone Bolelli.

In November, he achieved his first victory against a top 100 player by beating Thomas Fabbiano (No. 73) during Paris Masters first-round qualifying match.

2018: Entering the top 100

After a disappointing first half of the season on the ATP Challenger Tour, Humbert experienced a breakthrough over the summer when he reached three Challenger finals in as many weeks. After losing the first two in Gatineau and Granby, Humbert captured his maiden Challenger title in Segovia. That stretch allowed him to qualify for the US Open qualifying tournament, where he won his spot his first single Grand Slam main draw. In the opening round, he defeated Collin Altamirano, a fellow qualifier, before losing in four sets to Stan Wawrinka.

In September, Humbert reached once again the final of a Challenger tournament in Cassis, falling to Enzo Couacaud. The next week, he received a wild card into the 2018 Moselle Open, where in reached the second round by defeating Bernard Tomic before falling to Nikoloz Basilashvili.

At the beginning of October, Humbert claimed his second Challenger title in Ortisei against world No. 55 Pierre-Hugues Herbert, rising to a career-high of world No. 99.

2019: Wimbledon fourth round

Humbert started the 2019 season by qualifying for ATP 250 Brisbane, before losing to Yasutaka Uchiyama 4-6, 6-7(6) in the round of 32.

The following week, Humbert played ATP 250 Auckland, after qualifying once again. Once in the main draw, he drew lucky loser Pablo Cuevas, defeating him in straight sets for his first ATP match win of the year. He then faced Philipp Kohlschreiber, whom he ultimately fell to 4-6, 4-6.

Thereafter, Humbert played in the Australian Open main draw. He fell in the round of 128 to compatriot Jérémy Chardy in five thrilling sets, 6-3, 6-7(6), 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-7(6) finishing in the first ever Australian Open super tiebreak to 10 points, which he lost 6-10.

In February, Humbert reached his first ATP semifinal, in Marseille, including a surprising upset against No. 2 seed and 13th ranked Borna ?ori? in the round of 16. He subsequently went on to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon later in the year, where he lost to the eventual and defending champion, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

Humbert reached two other ATP 250 semifinals during the year, in Newport where he lost in three sets to John Isner, and in Antwerp where he lost in three sets to Andy Murray.

He ended the year by taking part in the Next Gen ATP Finals, but he did not pass the round robin despite having beaten the eventual winner, Jannik Sinner.

2020: First ATP title

Humbert started the year by reaching his first ATP final in Auckland, beating en route two top 20 players, Denis Shapovalov and John Isner. He then went on to beat his countryman Benoît Paire in three sets to win the title.[3]

Playing style

According to his coach, Cédric Raynaud, Humbert is a true offensive player who likes to volley.[4]
