Maxime Cressy (born May 8, 1997) is a French-American professional tennis player. He has a career-high singles ranking of world No. 59 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), achieved on January 31, 2022. He has been ranked as high as world No. 180 in doubles, achieved on November 18, 2019. Cressy has won 3 singles titles and 2 doubles titles on the ATP Challenger Tour. Before 2018, he played for his country of birth, France.
Cressy made his Grand Slam main draw debut at the 2020 US Open as a wildcard entrant where he reached the second round after defeating Jozef Kovalík. He would lose in the second round to 4th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas.
After qualifying for the main draw at the 2021 US Open, Cressy won a five-set match with a fifth set tiebreak against 9th seed and two-time US Open semifinalist Pablo Carreño Busta after coming back from two sets to love down to win in a tiebreak, saving four match points in the process.
Cressy then qualified for the main draw at the 2021 BNP Paribas Open. He defeated Laslo ?ere in the first round before falling to 11th seed Diego Schwartzman in 3 sets. Cressy served for the match against Schwartzman in the third set, but could not convert two match points. He reached the final in the 2021 Challenger Eckental where he lost to German Daniel Masur. As a result he hit a new career-high of world No. 128 on 8 November 2021.
Cressy reached the quarterfinals at the 2022 Melbourne Summer Set 1 as a qualifier saving two match points against 2nd seed Reilly Opelka. He defeated Jaume Munar to reach the semifinals of an ATP tournament for the first time. He defeated 3rd seed Grigor Dimitrov to reach his first ATP Tour Final. Cressy lost the final to 1st seed Rafael Nadal. As a result he reached a career-high of world No. 70 on January 17, 2022.
He qualified as a direct entry at the 2022 Australian Open after the withdrawal of Dominic Thiem. He defeated the 22nd seed, fellow American John Isner in five sets with three tiebreaks in the first round for his second win at this Major. Cressy advanced to the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career after defeating qualifier Tomá? Machá? in four sets. He then beat Australian wildcard Christopher O'Connell to progress to the fourth round for the first time at any Major. As a result he made his top 60 debut in the rankings at world No. 59 on January 31, 2022. Cressy would lose in the fourth round to 2nd seed Daniil Medvedev.
At the 2022 Eastbourne International he reached his second final after defeating leading British player Jack Draper. En route to the final, he defeated World No. 12 and top seed Cameron Norrie. As a result he moved into the top 50 in the singles rankings.
Cressy is a big server who plays a predominantly serve-and-volley style in his service games. His second serve is nearly as fast and sometimes faster than his first serve. He has an aggressive return of serve. He has a good forehand and backhand but is most dangerous when he is chipping-and-charging and volleying.
Current through the 2022 Eastbourne International.
