Hubert Hurkacz is the Polish No.1 player. He is also the first Polish player to win an ATP Masters 1000 title after he defeated Jannik Sinner at the Miami Open 2021. His tennis idol is Roger Federer and he attained his career-high ranking of World No.16 recently.
Even though Hubert Hurkacz is Polish, he resides in Florida in the United States. It is where he does all his practice and attends his training sessions. So far, he has won three titles in the singles category. He won his first-ever ATP title at the Winston-Salem Open in 2019.
Hurkacz has been a brilliant athlete since his very childhood. As a junior, he ended up as the runner of the Australian Open boys’ doubles finals in 2015. However, it would not have been possible hadn’t he got unconditional support from his parents.
Everything you need to know about the parents of Hubert Hurkacz
Hubert Hurkacz was born on February 11, 1997. Both his father, Krzysztof Hurkacz, and mother, Zofia Maliszewska-Hurkacz are Polish. They were his first-ever teachers who introduced him to tennis.
Hubert Hurkacz’s family has had quite a history in sports. His mother was a junior tennis champion in Poland. Both his uncles were also tennis players and his grandfather was an international volleyball player.
Hurkacz began playing tennis at the age of five. He became so much interested in the sport that he never thought of opting for any other career. However, he believes that if not a tennis player, he would have been a basketball player or a Formula 1 race driver.
Apart from his parents, Hurkacz also has a younger sister, Nika Hurkacz. She is ten years younger than him but hopes to be a professional tennis player like him one day.
As a result, it is definitely his parents’ strong determination and hard work that yielded results. Will Hurkacz be able to win a Grand Slam title this year?
