Biography

Filip Peliwo (born January 30, 1994 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) is a Canadian professional tennis player. He reached a career-high ATP singles ranking of No. 161 on May 21, 2018 and a career-high ATP doubles ranking of No. 321 on March 19, 2018.

Peliwo became the first Canadian male and second Canadian ever to win a Grand Slam in singles at any level with his 2012 Wimbledon boys' title win. This was Canada's second Grand Slam title in two days, one day after Eugenie Bouchard's. With the victory, Peliwo reached the No. 1 combined junior world ranking in July 2012, the first time a Canadian has been top ranked. He won his second straight junior Grand Slam title at the 2012 US Open. Peliwo was also runner-up in the boys singles events at the 2012 Australian Open and French Open. At the Masters 1000 Rogers Cup at the beginning of August, Peliwo was granted a wildcard into the main draw, his first appearance at an ATP Tour tournament. He scored an upset with a three-set win over world No. 39 Jarkko Nieminen in the first round when Nieminen retired at 1–3 in the third set. He was defeated in the next round by world No. 66 Denis Istomin in three sets. In 2017, he won his first ATP Challenger title, defeating Denis Kudla at the 75K in Knoxville.

Peliwo was born in Vancouver to Polish parents Mark and Monika. He played his early tennis through his teens at the North Shore Winter Club in North Vancouver BC and was part of the National Training Centre in Montréal from 2009 to 2013. He is the only one of three siblings not born in Poland.
