Wiki

Édouard Roger-Vasselin (born November 28, 1983 in Gennevilliers, Hauts-de-Seine) is a male tennis player from France, the son of 1983 French Open semi-finallist Christophe Roger-Vasselin.

At the 2007 French Open he reached the third round, as a wild card, after a second round victory against Czech player Radek Štěpánek in five sets (3–6, 6–1, 0–6, 6–4, 6–4). He also reached the third round at Wimbledon, beating 24th seed Juan Ignacio Chela in straight sets along the way, and made the top 100 for the first time as a result. On July 16, 2007 he reached a career best ranking of 82.

At the 2009 Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships, Roger-Vasselin advanced through the qualifying draw to set up a first round match with 2009 US Open champion Juan Martín del Potro. Ranked #189 at the time, Roger-Vasselin stunned the World No. 5 6–4, 6–4. The match was Roger-Vasselin's first ATP Main Draw Tour level victory of the season. Roger-Vasselin then defeated Austrian Jürgen Melzer to advance to the 3rd round, where he would lose to Former World #1 Lleyton Hewitt in straight sets.
