I first met Fabrice through a pro friend of mine James Cluskey and ever since I have been following Fabrice's rise to world number 33 in the ATP doubles. He is a massive 6 foot 6 (1.98m) and has a big serve to match. He's won 3 ATP 250 tournaments the past 12 months (Doha, Delray Beach and Chennai) and finishing as runner up in another 5. He mixes up his partners and has played with Jeremy Chardy, Daniel Nestor, Oliver Marach and Purav Raja. He has the doubles game to win a slam and we believe its going to happen soon for him.
I got to see him play in Roland Garros in 2016, heres a small clip
