Jonathan Eysseric was born on May 27, 1990 and was raised in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in France, where he started his junior tennis playing career. His parents are Didier and Pascale. He has two brothers, namely, Florian and Benjamin.
He started playing tennis at a tender age of 4. However, it was several years after before he got his first taste of real tennis competition. It was in 2007 when Jonathan competed in Grand Slam Tournaments. The first battle was held in the Australian Open. In the same year, he made it to the first round of the French Open, where he competed in both the junior and main draws.
During the men’s doubles, he partnered with Jeremy Chardy. The game went on a tie break; however, they ended up losing to Leander Paes and Martin Damm, who were actually very seasoned players. Paes, for example, had already reached second and third rounds in the Grand Slam Tournaments. He also lost in the singles competition to Ricardas Berankis, a Lithuanian tennis player.
Nevertheless, his professional career was not all about losing. In 2007, he was able to make it to the U.S. Open, where he played for the doubles titles in the junior’s category. Together with Jerome Inzerillo, they were able to grab the title and won against Vasek Pospisil and Grigor Dimitrov.
Jonathan is known to play using his left hand or more comfortable with double-handed backhand. His coach is Didler Lanne. He prefers to play in a clay court rather than a grass court. During his spare time, he loves to listen to music as well as to surf the World Wide Web. Like every growing tennis player, he hopes that he will make it to the top rank. Moreover, while most go for Agassi, Nadal, and Federer, Jonathan opts for Drew Daniel and Johnny Hamui.
