Edouard Roger-Vasselin

The first winner of the Open Deauville Trouville is back for the 2019 edition! This year he will try to cross the semi-final stage where he had failed in the previous edition.

Born in 1983 in Gennevilliers, Edouard Roger Vasselin is the son of Christophe Roger Vasselin also a professional tennis player, semi-finalist of Roland Garros in 1983 against Yannick Noah. He was crowned French champion 17-18 years old in 2001 and triple French champion in team from 2004 to 2006.

After an honorable career in singles started in 2007 (1st game on the ATP circuit), Édouard Roger-Vasselin has devoted himself fully to double since 2017. He set himself high goals: to win a second Roland Garros this year and to participate in the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.

A true doubles specialist, he currently occupies 27th place in the world, thus getting closer to his best ranking obtained in 2014 (6th). During his career Édouard Roger-Vasselin won 17 ATP titles, all in doubles, including the 2014 edition of Roland Garros alongside Julien Benneteau. He also reached the Wimbledon final in 2016 with the same partner.

He will try to recover his trophy and take the opportunity to prepare for Queen's and Wimbledon which he will compete in doubles.
