Matt Ebden moved from South Africa to Australia with his family as a 12 year-old and elected to finish school before turning his mind to full time tennis in 2005. Ebden defied the late start to enter the world’s top 100 in 2011 and emerge as one of his nation’s brightest prospects, establishing himself in the Australian Davis Cup team and earning the ATP Nomination for Most Improved Player of the Year.
An accomplished doubles player, Ebden has won four ATP doubles titles and is also a Grand Slam Champion after winning the 2013 Australian Open Mixed Doubles title with Jarmila Gajdosova.
A winner of eight Challenger titles, Ebden made his first ATP singles final in 2017 and achieved a career-high singles ranking of 39 in October 2018.
Ebden is one of the best movers on tour and has played in the main draw of all four Grand Slams, with a third round appearance at Wimbledon in 2018 his best result. He opted not to enter the US Open in 2019 after a long-stretch away from Perth in order to refresh and recharge for the rest of the season.
