Florent Lucien Serra (born 28 February 1981) is a French retired professional tennis player.[1] A right-hander, he won two ATP titles during his career and achieved a career-high singles ranking of World No. 36 in June 2006.

Career

Early life and junior career

Serra was born in Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, in 1981 to Jean-Luc and Martine. He started playing tennis at the age of seven[1] at a tennis club in Bordeaux after his father got him involved.[2] After completing his A-level equivalent (the French "bac") with a major in Economics at 18, Serra left Bordeaux for Paris, to train under the national training program at Roland Garros.[2] As a result of playing minimal junior tournaments, his career high junior ranking was no. 437 on 31 December 1999.[3] He turned pro in 2000.[2]

Professional career

From 2000 to 2002, he reached six Futures finals, winning one of them, along with reaching his first Challenger final.[4] He made his debut on the ATP Tour in 2003.[2] In 2005 he had his most successful year, winning three out of four Challenger finals,[4] and his first ATP tour title, in Bucharest. He won his second title the following year in Adelaide.[2] In 2009, he was a runner-up in Casablanca.[4] He has been coached by Pierre Cherret since he was a junior player,[1][3] and his fitness trainer is Paul Quetin.[2] Serra reached the 2nd round of Wimbledon 2012, losing to Kei Nishikori, 3-6, 5-7, 2-6. [5]

Personal

His mother works as a secretary in Bordeaux, while Serra himself lives in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.[2]
