Tommy Robredo Garcés (born 1 May 1982 in Hostalric, Girona) is a Spanish professional tennis player. On 8 May 2006, he broke into the world's top ten for the first time. His highest singles ranking to date is No. 5, which he first reached on 28 August 2006 soon after winning the Hamburg Masters.
He turned professional in 1998 and was coached by José Manuel "Pepo" Clavet and is now coached by Karim Perona. Robredo considers his forehand to be his best shot, and red clay is his favorite surface.
Robredo began playing tennis regularly when he was five and his family moved to Olot, where his father Ángel became the director of the local tennis club, Club Natació Olot. (Robredo's mother Dolores is herself a former assistant coach.) He was coached by his father until 1996 when he joined the Spanish Tennis Federation at the Centre d'Alt Rendiment ("High Performance Center"), a famous center for professional sports training in Sant Cugat del Vallès. He turned professional in 1998.
As a junior player, Robredo won the Junior Orange Bowl 16–Under in both singles and doubles (with Marc López) in 1998. As a professional he made the singles and doubles finals of a Futures-level event, winning the doubles title with Pedro Cánovas. In 1999 he made the semifinals of the boys' event at the French Open and won a Futures tournament in singles as well as another in doubles. Earlier that year in Robredo's hometown tournament of Barcelona – his first event at the ATP Tour level – he recorded a win over Marat Safin, who was then ranked in the world's top thirty, before going on to lose to top ten player Todd Martin.
In 2000 Robredo reached the singles and doubles finals of the boys' event at Roland Garros, losing to Paul-Henri Mathieu in singles but winning the doubles with López. He also won the boy's doubles title at the Australian Open (with Nicolas Mahut) and won two Challenger-level tournaments, making the finals of a third and winning the doubles title in a fourth (with Michael Russell).
2001 was a breakthrough season for Robredo: He reached his first final at the ATP Tour level in Casablanca and won his first title on the main tour in Sopot. He also made the fourth round at two Grand Slams, losing to Yevgeny Kafelnikov at the French Open and winning a fantastic five-set match against world number five Juan Carlos Ferrero at the U.S. Open before losing to Andy Roddick. Robredo also made the semifinals of three other tour events, and by the end of 2001 he was the second youngest player to end the season inside the world's top thirty, behind Roddick.
Robredo began 2002 by partnering with Arantxa Sánchez Vicario to win the Hopman Cup for Spain. In the Final against the United States, Sánchez Vicario lost 1–6 6–7 to Monica Seles before Robredo levelled the tie with a 6–3 2–6 7–6 victory over Jan-Michael Gambill. The Spanish pair then won the Mixed Doubles 6–4 6–2.
Unlike the previous year, in 2002 Robredo was not able to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam tournament. However, he reached his first ATP Masters Series quarterfinal at the Rome Masters and quickly bettered that result by reaching his first Masters semifinal at Hamburg. Three additional semifinal results (at 's-Hertogenbosch, Båstad, and Stockholm) and a quarterfinal in Stuttgart helped Robredo end a second season ranked inside the world's top thirty. This season also saw Robredo pass the million-dollar mark in career earnings and make his debut in Spain's Davis Cup team against the United States.
Arguably, the highlight of Robredo's 2003 season was his run to the quarterfinal of the French Open. Robredo's result was notable in that he took out world number one Lleyton Hewitt in five sets and three-time French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten before eventually falling in a second five-set match to defending champion Albert Costa. Robredo remarked before his match against Costa: "I've beaten the ace, I've beaten the king", in reference to his wins over Hewitt and Kuerten. "Now I need to beat the jack, don't I? If I beat Costa, I'll have beaten the entire pack of cards." Despite not reaching a quarterfinal in any Masters Series event this season, strong showings in other tournaments, including three quarterfinals, three semifinals (one of which was a second Båstad semifinal), and a runner-up result in Stuttgart allowed Robredo to break into the world's top twenty for the first time in his career.
2006 has been Robredo's best season to date. Shortly after reaching a career-high ranking of #10 in the world, he rose to #7 by winning his first ATP Masters Series title on 21 May at the Hamburg Masters, beating Radek Štěpánek in the final in straight sets. He then beat Nikolay Davydenko in straight sets in the Båstad final for his second title of the year. During 2006 Robredo also reached the fourth round of every Grand Slam tournament except Wimbledon; the final at Barcelona; three semifinals, including two at Masters events; and three quarterfinals, including one at a Masters event. After briefly peaking at an all-time high rank of #5, Robredo qualified for the year-ending Tennis Masters Cup (TMC) for the first time in his career. He did not advance past the round-robin stage at the TMC but did record a fantastic three-set victory over the tournament's eventual runner-up, James Blake.
In 2007 Robredo reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open for the first time, losing to world number one Roger Federer. Although no one at the tournament managed to win a set from Federer, Robredo and the eventual finalist Fernando González tied for the most number of games won against the world number one. He went on to lose another quarterfinal to Federer at the French Open; in that match Robredo became the first man since Andy Roddick in the 2006 U.S. Open to win a set from Federer in a Grand Slam tournament, snapping Federer's record winning streak of thirty-six consecutive sets in Grand Slam matches. Robredo later won his first title of the year by beating José Acasuso in straight sets at Sopot, the tournament where he had won his first ATP Tour title six years earlier.
2007 brought increased hardcourt success for Robredo: After years of contesting finals on red clay he reached the final of a tournament played on hardcourts for the first time at Auckland, followed by two more hardcourt finals at Beijing and Metz. He won the Metz title, defeating Andy Murray in three sets for his second title of the season. Despite reaching the semifinal of Estoril and six quarterfinals (including three Masters quarterfinals) in 2007, Robredo also lost his opening match at numerous events: At Dubai; at the Hamburg Masters and the Swedish Open where he was defending champion; and at three other Masters tournaments. He ended the year ranked #10 in the world – too low to compete at the TMC but high enough to attend as an alternate.
To date Robredo's current season has not been as successful as the previous two; he did not put together more than two back-to-back victories until the start of the European clay season in April, and his multiple losses to lower ranked players include his earliest loss at the French Open since 2002. However, he did win his first title of the year at Båstad, beating Tomáš Berdych in the final for his second Swedish Open title. He has also made the finals of the Orange Warsaw Open, the semifinals of the Valencia event, and the quarterfinals at Barcelona and the Rome Masters.
Robredo has had some doubles success this season, teaming up with compatriot Rafael Nadal to win his first doubles titles in four years by beating Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles at the Monte Carlo Masters. He also reached the semifinals of the Hamburg Masters with Leander Paes. Bhupathi, Knowles, and Paes are all former world number one doubles players. He ended as world ranked number 21.
Robredo started the year in Sydney, where he lost to Mario Ančić 6–2, 6–1. In the Australian Open he was the 21st seed were he reached the 4th round, but eventually lost to semifinalist Andy Roddick in straight sets 7–5, 6–1, 6–3. He won his first two titles of the year in 2009 Brasil Open defeating Thomaz Bellucci 6–3, 3–6, 6–4 on clay in both the singles and doubles tournaments for the first time. The following week he won his second title in 2009 Copa Telmex defeating Juan Mónaco 7–5, 2–6, 7–6. He then reached the Quarterfinals of 2009 Abierto Mexicano Telcel losing to José Acasuso.

He next was defeated by Israeli Dudi Sela, however, when they played for a spot in the round of 16, by a score of 7–6, 7–5, 2–6, 7–5. Sela had a 2–0 head-to-head record against Robredo going into the match.

Despite bad showings at the tournaments leading up the US Open, Robredo managed to find some form and was rewarded with yet another 4th round appearance of the US Open after wins over Donald Young, Guillermo García López and James Blake. However, he was again denied a quarterfinal, this time by Roger Federer in straight sets.
