Martín Landaluce continues to consolidate himself as one of the great promises for the future of Spanish tennis, steadily progressing on tour in search of professional maturity. At 17 years of age, last week the Madrid native became the first tennis player born in 2006 to break into the Top 500 in the ATP Rankings, a significant milestone.


After competing at the Copa Faulcombridge in Valencia, where he defeated Pablo Andújar in the final match of the Cuenca native’s career, Monday’s list puts him at No. 443 in the world, currently higher than any other player in his generation.


The Spaniard, who trains at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar and became the junior world No. 1 in February this year, has made solid strides towards professionalism in 2023. With some solid improvement under the watchful eyes of Óscar Burrieza, Gustavo Marcaccio, and Esteban Carril, the Spaniard continues to fine tune his game as he reaches the end of adolescence.


The achievement is the result of a season that has seen him make his first professional appearances on tour, where he has shown off his innate talent against some of the biggest names in the locker room. As he battles to take down his next opponent, Landaluce has managed to produce a positive balance on the ITF World Tennis Tour (20-14) and won six of the 16 matches he played on the ATP Challenger Tour, the highlights of which were reaching the quarter-finals in Alicante and Valencia.


Above all, the season provided him with an opportunity to dream. The Spaniard enjoyed one of the most special moments of his career so far at the Mutua Madrid Open, where he had the chance to compete in an ATP Masters 1000 event for the first time. A wildcard for the main draw in his native city gave him a match against French former Top-10 player Richard Gasquet.


After making his ATP Tour debut in the main draw in Gijon last season, the 2022 Junior US Open champion enjoyed several other significant moments this year, adding to his dream in the Caja Mágica with the experiences in the qualifiers at the ATP 500 in Barcelona and the main draw at the ATP 250 in Umag.


With his sights firmly set on further establishing himself in 2024, Landaluce continues to notch up the small victories as he moves ever closer to the ATP Tour.
