Bio He is an American professional tennis player.
Fritz has won six ATP Tour singles titles, including a Masters 1000 title at the 2022 Indian Wells Masters. His best results at the majors are reaching the quarterfinals of the 2022 Wimbledon Championships, the 2023 US Open and the 2024 Australian Open. He is currently the No. 1 American in men's singles.

Fritz reached his first ATP final in only his third career event, the 2016 Memphis Open; only one other American, John Isner, has reached an ATP final in fewer career events. He won a junior major singles title at the 2015 US Open, and was the runner-up in junior singles at the 2015 French Open. As of December 19, 2023, he was ranked 10th in the world by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).

Fritz was born the youngest of three boys to Kathy May, a former top-10 player, and Guy Henry Fritz, who also played professional tennis and was named US Olympic Development Coach of the Year 2016. Taylor Fritz is the great-great-grandson of David May, founder of The May Department Stores Company, which merged with Macy's, and he is the great-grandson of Morton D. May.

Fritz has two older maternal half-brothers, Chris and Kyle. His uncle, Harry Fritz, also played professional tennis and competed in the seventh-longest match of all time by number of games.

Fritz grew up with his brothers in Rancho Santa Fe in the San Diego metropolitan area. He attended Torrey Pines High School, where he won the CIF singles title in the San Diego section as a freshman. A few months into his sophomore year, he switched to an online high school to play full-time ITF junior events.

Fritz did not play any ITF events until he was 15, when he competed in a low-level Grade-4 tournament in March 2013 in Claremont near where he grew up. He would not play another event until the 2013 Junior US Open, at which point he began to compete regularly on the ITF Circuit shortly before turning 16. Within the next year, he made it to the semifinals at the 2014 Junior Wimbledon tournament. He then won his first Grade A tournament at the 2014 Osaka Mayor's Cup.

In 2015, Fritz reached at least the quarterfinal of all four junior Grand Slam tournaments, including the final at the French Open where he lost to Tommy Paul, and the final at the US Open where he defeated Paul. This major success helped him finish the year as the number-one-ranked boy's junior tennis player, for which he was named the 2015 ITF Junior World Champion. He was the first American to hold this title since Donald Young in 2005 and Andy Roddick in 2000.

Fritz played his first ATP Tour tournament at Nottingham, where he received a wild card and won his first ATP match against Pablo Carreño Busta.

In September 2015, Fritz turned pro after winning the Junior US Open.

John Isner is the only American that was able to reach an ATP final faster. Fritz would lose in the final to three-time defending champion and top-10 player Kei Nishikori.
