I thought that since Marton is now starting his senior career officially I'd start a thread for him, as I know a lot of people enjoy following the careers of young guys.

Fucsovics first made a name for himself playing Junior Davis Cup for Hungary at the end of the 2008 season. In 2009 he started the season off well getting to the final of a G2 Clay Court tournament, in April, and would do one better in May of the same year. Fucscovics really became a junior household name when he won the Junior Gerry Weber tournament on Grass, and then made it to the European Championship finals, losing to Stephen Diez. He finished off the year by making the semi-finals of a G1 in Canada, before playing in his first Grandslam, the Junior US Open, where he lost in the Round of 16 to eventual finalist Chase Buchanan. After that Fucsovics would lose in the final of the Eddie Herr U-18s, before suffering an early round upset in the Orange Bowl.
2010 was a good year for Fucsovics, where he would make it to at least the semi-finals of almost every tournament he playedFucscovics made the run to the Australian Open semi-final, but wouldn't play another tournament until May. After that he made it to the semi-finals of Gerry Weber, and then would win the Junior Wimbledon title, becoming the first Hungarian to do so. Fucsovics would then suffer two shock first round losses in the European Championships and Youth Olympics, but, along with team Hungary would win the European Boys Summer Cup. For his last junior tournament Fucsovics lost in the semi-finals of the US Open, having made it to the semi-finals of every Grandslam he played that year.
