this should at least answer your question with regard to ATP events, just in case you care about them as well :)

Gasquet won Spain#3 2002 (Satellite) and Montaubam 2002 (Challenger) in his first attempt on these levels. Before first Challenger he played 2 ATP tournaments and 1 Grand Slam :)

Unfortunately I don't know a player who won Futures in first attempt. I know players who did it in 2nd or 3rd attempt, not in the first :shrug:

Finding players who won a Futures in their first attempt is extremely easy. :D



Futures started in 1998 and before that you had Satellites only. So the players who won Futures in 1998 were often first timers.

Just check this link from the ATP vault for Futures results from 1998 -
