50+ Famous Male Tennis Players

Active & Retired

By Jon Crim

There have been hundreds of successful male tennis players throughout history, and while only a handful will go down as the greatest of all time, there are many more widely celebrated players.

If you’re new to tennis or looking to expand your knowledge of players who have achieved some of the highest levels of success on the court, this resource will help you get up to speed quickly.

I’ll cover some of the most famous active and retired tennis players ever to step onto the court, including some of their most significant accomplishments and why they made this list.

I’ll also provide a complete list of former No. 1s in singles, doubles, and former Grand Slam champions. Check out my list of famous female tennis players if you’d like to explore that side of the tour.

Selection Criteria

A player’s success on the court goes a long way to developing name recognition and fame. However, various other factors, including their personalities, behavior, and exposure off the court, influence how well they become known among tennis fans and the general public.

As part of curating this list of famous male tennis players, I looked at a handful of different factors to gauge their popularity. Here are some of the most prominent that I reviewed:

  • Rankings
  • Titles
  • On-court behavior
  • Off-court exposure
  • Social media followers
  • Newsworthy events

Taken together, I pulled together my picks for the most influential men to ever step on the court. I’ve also included each player’s Instagram account where applicable so that you can follow along with their journeys if that’s of interest to you.

It’s worth noting that some of the active players listed will likely not be remembered the same way as many of the retired players with significantly greater achievements in their careers.

As a result, I’ll update this list over the years to try and provide the most accurate snapshot of famous male players.

Active Male Tennis Players

Some of the best-known tennis players in the world are still competing at the top of their game on the ATP Tour, so we’ll start with them.

Keep in mind that some of these players are nearing the end of their careers, and others have had injuries, so although you might not see them or have heard of them recently, they’re still active.

Novak Djokovic

One of the greatest female tennis players of all time, Steffi Graf, is a legend of the sport.
Novak Djokovic’s success in recent years has helped him quickly become known as one of the greatest tennis players ever to live. Perhaps most notably, he’s currently tied for the second-most Grand Slam singles titles with Roger Federer, nine of which are Australian Open titles.

Indicative of his dominance, Novak currently holds the record for the most weeks as world No. 1, with 364 weeks.

However, Novak is well-known for other reasons beyond the court, including his gluten-free diet, temper, and default from the 2020 US Open. More recently, he received significant global media coverage when the Australian government denied his visa due to his vaccination status when trying to compete in the Australian Open.

Until a few years ago, many viewed Federer as the GOAT in tennis. While many still believe this to be the case, the conversation has shifted toward Djokovic and Nadal as injuries have sidelined him.

Although Roger’s accomplishments throughout his career are numerous, his record eight Wimbledon titles are one of the most significant.

Federer’s talent and success speak volumes, but he’s also well known for his sportsmanship, friendly demeanor, style on the court, and lucrative sponsorship deals. He continues to be one of the sport’s most important ambassadors and one of the best-known players worldwide.

Perhaps most notably in his career, he’s known as the king of clay, with 13 French Open titles on clay courts, the most in any major. He’s also won an Olympic gold medal in singles and doubles for Spain.

Beyond his on-court success, Nadal is well-known for his tennis academy in Mallorca, Spain, his friendly and respectful demeanor, unique on-court routines, and affinity toward yachts.

At the height of his career, many considered Andy Murray part of the big four, including Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal. Although he hasn’t achieved nearly the success of those three, he was one of the few players able to break through to win Grand Slams during their reign.

Unfortunately for Andy Murray, he’s well known for having back surgery in 2013 and then hip surgery in 2018. He even has a Netflix documentary covering the struggles he went through having hip surgery and fighting to return to the highest levels of the sport. Murray is also well-known for supporting women in tennis and, more broadly.

Russian tennis player, Daniil Medvedev, is one of the few players outside of Andy Murray to rise to the top of the game. In 2021, he defeated Novak Djokovic at the US Open, preventing him from achieving a Grand Slam, winning all four majors in a calendar year.

On the court, he’s developed a reputation for his temper, often fighting with fans and umpires, but improvements in this area combined with his success have earned him respect by many. He’s also well known for his unorthodox style when playing tennis.

One of the sport’s most promising up and comers, Alexander Zverev, has been a consistent performer on the ATP Tour for years, including the accumulation of five Masters 1000 titles and Olympic gold. As one of the biggest servers on tour, he’s ironically well-known for choking on serve and double-faulting.

In 2020, Zverev’s ex-girlfriend Olga Sharypova accused him of physical and emotional abuse, which received significant media attention and has tarnished his reputation. At the Mexican Open in 2022, Zverev returned to the spotlight when he struck the umpire’s chair with his racquet multiple times, which unsurprisingly went viral.

In 2019, Zverev and Federer played an exhibition match in Mexico City that claimed the world record for most attendees breaking 42,000.

He’s also one of the few players who consistently challenged the big three, with multiple wins against Nadal and Djokovic and a winning record against Federer. Recently, a recurring wrist injury sidelines him for the second half of 2021 and the first few months of 2022.

Although Swiss tennis player Stan Wawrinka has mostly lived in the shadows of Roger Federer throughout his career, he’s one of the most successful players to compete against the big three. All three of his Grand Slam titles came against Nadal and Djokovic.

Stan is also a gold medal winner in doubles, which came in 2008 when he partnered up with countryman Roger Federer.

More recently, Stan had a foot surgery that saw him miss most of the 2021 season. In 2022, he’s returned to the tour.

Once pegged as the bad boy of tennis, Nick Kyrigios is well known for his explosive game, trick shots, and ability to take out some of the biggest names in the sport, including the big three, all three of which he defeated the first time he ever played them.

Despite his natural talent, Nick’s results are streaky at best as he struggles to apply himself consistently, often undone by outbursts on the court aimed at the umpire or fans.

However, his unorthodox approach to the game, outspoken opinions, and sharing of intimate details, including his struggles with depression and substance abuse, have earned him a large fan base that regularly draws some of the biggest crowds in the sport.

Early in his career, many fans drew strong comparisons between his style of play and Roger Federer, earning him the label “Baby Fed.” However, he was never a fan wanting fans to appreciate his unique style.

Diego has earned four titles during his career and regularly makes deep runs at the Grand Slams, with a career-best appearance in the semi-finals of the 2020 French Open on clay, one of his best surfaces.

Like those previously mentioned on this, Andre Agassi is a highly decorated tennis player. One achievement that sets him apart from most others is one of two men (Nadal being the other) to complete a career Golden Slam, but he remains the only player to win a career Super Slam.

Andre’s autobiography, “Open,” is a best-selling book that chronicles his childhood through his tennis career and famously married Steffi Graff, one of the best female tennis players of all time. In retirement, Agassi has spent much of his time on his charitable efforts in Las Vegas.

Australian tennis player Ken Rosewell achieved great success, earning a No. 1 ranking and eight Grand Slam titles. His name is less known than others because much of his career came before the Open Era in tennis, which started in 1968.

Despite that, Ken is one of the most prominent male tennis players in history and had incredible talent in singles and doubles.

Fed spent a portion of his career as an amateur and then turned professional in 1936. His career took place well before the Open Era, and he retired in 1959. One of his crowing achievements includes a career Grand Slam, winning at least one of each Grand Slam tournament.

Although he’s no longer with us, Fred Perry remains an icon of the sport and one of the more talented players ever to step on a court.

Post-retirement, Fred spent many years as a tennis broadcaster, and in 1979, he released “Fred Perry,” an autobiography. He also had a clothing line, which continues until this day. Finally, he has a statue at Wimbledon and several memorials throughout the UK, which honor his legacy and contribution to the game.

List of Male No. 1s in Singles

Few players reach the pinnacle of tennis by achieving a number one ranking. Since 1973, only 27 players have achieved the feat, which is a surprisingly low number considering the depth of field.

By accomplishing the feat, it’s natural for these individuals to become famous and known by fans and the general public worldwide, especially as the media emphasizes those ascending to the top spot.

Furthermore, as players achieve a world No. 1 ranking, they tend to attract more endorsements from large companies and organizations that promote the player and further increase their exposure.

With that in mind, here’s a list of the male tennis players who have achieved a number one ranking in tennis.

Male Grand Slam Champions

The four Grand Slam tournaments, including the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open, are some of the longest-running and prestigious on the ATP Tour with the highest prize money.

As a result, each is televised widely and gains international media attention as players battle to become the next champion. Naturally, when a player wins a Grand Slam event, their exposure increases significantly, and new sponsorships tend to follow.

All together, Grand Slam champions are some of the most widely recognized tennis players in history.
