In an era where players can play until 36 it is becoming more and more likely. We just need one these players to have kids when they are like 17 or 18. are there any current young players with kids?

Remember Grigor is not a blood relative of Federer.

If you're a millionaire, you can just hire a nanny. Obviously not encouraging players to do but its life shit happens.

It happened in handball here in Germany and in football there is the fstory of Eiður Guðjohnsen who entered a match against Estonia for his father Arnór Guðjohnsen in 1996. So it's not impossible.

The youngest player in the top 150 is 20 years old.
The oldest player in the top 150 is 36 years old.

So somehow, a guy must have a child at 16 years old. It has to be male. Despite professional tennis players NEVER being teenage parents, the guy makes it as a pro and stays active until 36. His kid somehow also makes it to the top 150. Then they have to get matched against each other in the few months that they are both active players.

I hope you understand how silly this all sounds.

If Nadal has a kid now and he starts playing professional at age 15, Nadal will be around 42. Could happen but unlikely. Some real young up and comer needs to have a kid right now, and then by age 36 or so he can take on the 16 year old son.

Op should do some research and find out which atp player has the oldest son. Maybe then.

From top 10 i see Federers twins and Stan. Dont recall if its a boy or girl.

Even if this does happen by mathematical reasons. they still need to get a favorable draw. We have a Rafa and Murray waiting to happen for a few months and still they have yet to meet.

In other sports yes. Tennis highly unlikly. But in WTA maybe. Kamiko Date Krum if she had a daughter it could of happen.

I think mother-daughter is more likely. Ladies can break onto the tour at 16, and can also play later into their life. Top touring woman gets pregnant early (20), quits the tour for a few years, gets a longing for the sport and comes back to play later in life.

Sons of famous/ex-players in top 300:
Miloslav Mecir Jr. (age 26 - his father Miloslav - 50)
Emilio Gomez (age 22 - his father Andres Gomez - 54).

Nephew - Uncle thing is more likely and can happen (one day) in ATP. Nikolay Davydenko vs Philipp Davydenko. It can happen if he receives a WC in russian tournaments or Davydenko dares to play challengers. Too bad Philipp is making slow improvement and his ranking 1052.


This year, in WTA, Kimiko Date-Krumm played Belinda Bencic in Australian Open R1.

Age - Krumm 43 (born 28 Sep 1970)

- Bencic 16 at that time. Now 17 (born 10 Mar 1997).

Quite possible in WTA. Also chances to happen in doubles are higher. Both men and women play till 40 or even more.


Oldest top 100 [doubles] players in WTA -
- K. Date-Krumm (born 28 Sep 1970)
- Raymond Lisa (10 August 1973)
- Janette Husarova born (4 June 1974)
- Kveta Peschke (born 9 July 1975)

Hm... hard to think so. Hewitt was 24 when he had is firs kid ( a girl), Wawrinka was almost 25 when he had his first born (also girl), I don't know any other players that became dads at a younger age.

What a remarkably strange and pointless question.

Maybe Arnold-A-Tomic (b. 2014) to beat GOAT at USO 2029 R1 after receiving WC as world no.1 junior, meeting his biological father for the first time, just a couple of weeks after DNA testing confirmed his mother shocking claims about that Miami partying (while Tomic was still slamless) as truthful.
