Biography

Vasek Pospisil (born June 23, 1990 in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada) is a Canadian professional tennis player. He reached a career-high ATP singles ranking of No. 25 on January 27, 2014 and a career-high ATP doubles ranking of No. 4 on April 27, 2015.

In 2013, Pospisil had his breakthrough at the Rogers Cup in Montréal as a wildcard. He defeated respectively world No. 20 John Isner in the first round, Radek Štěpánek in the second round and world No. 6 Tomáš Berdych in the third round, which was Pospisil's first top-10 win. In the quarterfinals leading 3–0 in the first set, Pospisil's opponent Nikolay Davydenko retired due to illness. In the semifinals, he lost to compatriot Milos Raonic. With this result, Pospisil was ranked in the top 40 for the first time in his career. In 2014, Pospisil reached his first ATP singles final at the Citi Open with wins over Rajeev Ram, world No. 5 Tomáš Berdych, Santiago Giraldo and world No. 14 Richard Gasquet. He was defeated by world No. 7 Milos Raonic in the first all-Canadian final in ATP history. Along with partner Jack Sock, he won the 2014 Wimbledon Championships and the 2015 Indian Wells Masters men's doubles titles. He also reached the quarterfinals in singles at the 2015 Wimbledon Championships. In February 2020 at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier, Pospisil advanced to the second ATP singles final of his career where he was defeated by Gaël Monfils. The same year in November, he reached his third ATP singles final, but was stopped by teenager Jannik Sinner in three sets. Also in 2020, he won the ATP Comeback Player of the Year award.

Vasek was born to Miloš Pospíšil and Mila. In 1988, before Vasek was born, his parents and older brothers unlawfully drove from Czechoslovakia to Austria to escape the Communist regime. Before moving, Miloš worked as the plant manager of a dairy factory, and Mila taught in a kindergarten. Both had experience playing recreational sports such as tennis with their sons and in local tournaments. The family lived in northeastern Austria and saved up to move to Canada despite working long hours for low wages. In the summer of 1989, they finally moved to Vernon, British Columbia, a city in the Okanagan Valley, because Miloš's brother was living there after escaping his home country in the years prior. The entire family had a meager understanding of the English language upon their arrival. Miloš worked two jobs, at a flour mill and as a machinery operator at a brewery. He began taking more interest in the game of tennis after the birth of his third son. He coached Vasek's older brothers on community tennis courts, recorded matches on television, and found tips and guidelines in tennis magazines. When Vasek was about 3 years old, he started acting as his brothers' ball boy when they practiced with their father. He also would "drag a mini tennis racquet all over the house." Vasek played his first tournament at age 6, competing at the under-12 level and still emerging as the champion. In the fall of 2002, the family had to move to Vancouver so that they could find a tennis coach for their youngest son. They had to leave Miloš behind, as he had to stay in Vernon to work at his brewery, but he would make the four-hour drive on weekends to see them. Vasek was coached by Russian-born Vadim Korkh, who had experience working with players such as Andrei Chesnokov while he was a professor of tennis at the Central Sport Academy in Moscow. Under Korkh, Vasek studied for school and did fitness training as well as practicing tennis. He played with Korkh five days each week, each practice lasting four hours. When Vasek was 14 years old, his father decided to return to coaching his son. Miloš left his brewery, moved to Vancouver, and became Vasek's full-time coach, training him at local high school courts once again.
