Todd Widom (born April 24, 1983, Coral Springs, Florida) is a retired American professional tennis player.

Biography

Widom, grew up in Coral Springs, Florida and is the son of Eloise Widom and has one brother, Gary. Todd is married to Beth Eisenberg also of Coral Springs. He coaches professional, college, and junior tennis players at his academy called TW Tennis, located in Coral Springs.[1] He is an avid sports fan and in his spare time enjoys golf and fishing.

Career

Widom attended and played at the University of Miami from 2001-2003. During this time, he was recognized as "Most Outstanding Player" at the Big East Tournament and named to the USA Tennis Collegiate Team.

In doubles, he and the American Scott Lipsky won an ATP Challenger tournament in Busan, Korea, in May 2006.[2]

Widom reached a career high singles ranking of 200 in July 2006 and a doubles ranking of 162 in April 2009.

Despite the fact that in three years Widom has suffered from eye cancer, two knee injuries, and inflammation in his elbow, he has recovered and continues to play and travel across the world regularly.

Playing mainly challenger tournaments, Widom achieved his career breakthrough when he won three matches in 2009 to qualify for the SAP Open in San Jose, and went on to beat 44th ranked Robby Ginepri, former 21st ranked Taylor Dent, and lost in three sets to the 21st ranked Radek ?t?pánek.

The following month, Widom went back to California and qualified for the ATP Masters 1000 at Indian Wells. He started by beating Iván Navarro in straight sets and eventually lost to 12th ranked David Ferrer.

This turn of events prompted ESPN to report that "a red-headed, blue-eyed journeyman from Coral Springs, Florida, made the largest leap of any player on the ultimate tennis ladder. After a series of outrageous misfortunes, Todd Widom did something extraordinary: He reached the quarterfinals of the SAP Open in San Jose."[3]
