Alejandro Davidovich Fokina is a Spanish professional tennis player. He has a career-high ATP singles ranking of World No. 32 achieved on 30 August 2021 and a career-high doubles ranking of World No. 213 achieved on 17 May 2021.
Davidovich Fokina was born and raised in La Cala del Moral, Rincón de la Victoria, about 10 km away from Málaga, to Russian parents Edvard Davidovich and Tatiana Fokina. His father Edvard, a former boxer, has Swedish-Russian double nationality. Davidovich Fokina has a brother, Mark. He began playing tennis with his father at the age of three. When he turned five, he started training at Calaflores and later Serramar tennis courts with coach Manolo Rubiales. Since 2009, Jorge Aguirre has been his coach.
Davidovich Fokina was Spanish Champion at U12, U15 and U18 levels. He started his professional tennis career in 2016. He won his first ITF Grade 1 in Canada at the Repentigny Internationaux de Tennis Junior, defeating Félix Auger-Aliassime in the semifinal, and Liam Caruana in the final.
Davidovich Fokina is known for having one of the best drop shots on the ATP Tour. His playing style could generally be described as aggressive, and his level tends to fluctuate over the course of a match. He also frequently deploys an underhand serve. Although he is not the tallest of players, he makes up for this disadvantage with his quick movement and powerful groundstrokes. Additionally, Davidovich Fokina can often be seen diving on courts of all surfaces, which leads to both wildly entertaining shotmaking and occasionally injury. He is also known for his excellent returns, often finding sharp angles.
In 2020, Davidovich Fokina reached the second round of a Grand Slam for the first time at the 2020 Australian Open. He beat Norbert Gombos in a 5-set epic, before falling to Diego Schwartzman.
He won his first ATP title in doubles at the 2020 Chile Open in Santiago, partnering with fellow Spaniard Roberto Carballés Baena, where they defeated in the final the 2nd seeded pair Marcelo Arévalo/Jonny O’Mara.
There are no reports of Alejandro Davidovich Fokina having a girlfriend or a wife.
