Bio He is a Brazilian professional tennis player.
He had a career high ITF junior ranking of No. 8 achieved on January 22, 2018. He won the 2018 US Open junior singles title.

Seyboth Wild made his ATP main draw debut at the 2018 Brasil Open after receiving a wildcard into the singles main draw. He won his first Challenger title at Guayaquil defeating Bolivian Hugo Dellien on November 3, 2019. At just 19 years old, he won his first ATP Tour title in Santiago defeating Casper Ruud on March 1, 2020. By winning this title he became the youngest Brazilian ever to win an ATP title. He also became the first player born in the 2000s to win an ATP Tour title.

In 2018, Wild became the second Brazilian to win a junior Grand Slam (US Open) on September 9, joining Tiago Fernandes. He also made the junior semifinal at the Roland Garros, and at the doubles of US Open and French Open.

In November 2019, at the age of 19, he won his first Challenger in Guayaquil, entering the top 300 in the world for the first time. With the title, he jumped to the 235th place in the world ranking, and became the third best tennis player in Brazil at the moment, behind only Thiago Monteiro and João Menezes.

In February 2020, he received wildcard to participate in the ATP 500 in Rio de Janeiro, where he defeated the Spaniard top 100 Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in three sets (5–7, 7–6 (7–3) and 7–5) in the first round, in the longest match in the history of the tournament (3 hours and 49 minutes). In the next round, he faced world number 32 Borna Ćorić, losing in the third set tiebreak. With this result, he entered the world top 200 for the first time on February 24, moving up to ranking No. 182.

In the following week, invited as a wildcard to the ATP 250 in Santiago, Wild had his best campaign: he defeated Facundo Bagnis, Juan Ignacio Londero (world No. 63) and in the quarterfinals, the top seed of the tournament, and champion of the Rio Open, the Chilean world No. 18 Cristian Garín, who retired after losing the first set in a tiebreak. In the semifinals he defeated Renzo Olivo in straight sets becoming the youngest Brazilian to reach a final at this level, surpassing the achievements of former world No. 1 Gustavo Kuerten, then aged 20, and of Jaime Oncins and Thomaz Bellucci, at 21 years old. He also became the first Brazilian to compete in an ATP level final since Bellucci was runner-up in Houston in April 2017. In the final, he defeated Norwegian Casper Ruud (ranked No. 38 and champion of the Argentina Open two weeks before), in three sets, becoming champion at 19 years old, surpassing Kuerten, who won his first ATP title at the age of 20. Wild was also the youngest tennis player to win a title in the Latin American clay court since Rafael Nadal won Acapulco in 2005, at the age of 18. Wild climbed up 69 positions, reaching a career high ATP singles ranking of No. 113, becoming the second-highest ranked tennis player in Brazil.

In March, Seyboth Wild became the first professional tennis player to announce a diagnosis of COVID-19. He was investigated for an alleged breach of quarantine prior to receiving the test results.

After the season was stopped for a few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he made his Major debut at the 2020 US Open (tennis). In September, Seyboth Wild participated in the Challenger 125 in Aix-en-Provence, France, reaching the final.

After two years of having poor results, in March, Wild reached the final of the Challenger in Santiago, losing to Hugo Dellien, and the following week, he won the Challenger in Vina del Mar, defeating top seed Hugo Gaston and returning to the top 230 in the singles rankings on March 20, 2023.

He also reached the doubles final at the 2023 Chile Open partnering Matías Soto. As a result he reached a new career career doubles ranking of No. 230 on March 20, 2023.

In April, Wild won the Buenos Aires Challenger in singles and doubles. With that, he returned to the world top 200 in singles, and entered the world top 200 in doubles for the first time.

In May, participating in the Piemonte Open, which is an ATP Challenger Tour 175 event, he reached the quarterfinals losing to the top seed and top-50 player, Argentine Sebastián Báez, in three sets.

Ranked No. 172, Wild qualified for Roland Garros for the first time. He entered the tournament qualifications as one of the lowest ranked players. He won his three matches against Antoine Bellier, Ričardas Berankis and Dominik Koepfer losing only one set. He upset world No. 2 and second seed Daniil Medvedev in a five-set match to advance to the second round, earning the biggest win of his career. After the defeat, Medvedev said of Wild that "if he keeps playing like this, he will be among the top 30 in the world."[16] Next he defeated former top 20 Guido Pella to move to the third round of a Major for the first time in his career. In the third round, facing the 27th seed Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka, Wild was leading two sets to 1, but succumbed to fatigue, being eliminated in 3 sets to 2.

Competing as unranked in the post-Roland Garros Grass tournaments, Wild made his preparation and entered the Wimbledon qualifying tournament, while fighting for the No. 1 spot in Brazil, over Felipe Meligeni Alves and Thiago Monteiro. He defeated Jelle Sels and Pierre-Hugues Herbert, but in the last round of qualifying, faced Tomás Barrios Vera. At the beginning of the fifth and final set, he suffered a slight sprain in his ankle that cost him his place in the main draw of Wimbledon. Wild then decided to compete on clay in the Challenger in Karlsruhe, Germany.

After reaching the quarterfinals in Karlsruhe, and the semifinals of the Challenger 125 in Braunschweig, both in Germany, Wild became the No. 1 Brazilian tennis player for the first time, surpassing Thiago Monteiro, who spent five years in this position.

Wild broke into the world top 100 for the first time, when he won the Challenger in Como, Italy. He defeated former top 20 Benoît Paire in the semifinal and former top-40 Pedro Martínez in the final, winning his fourth career Challenger title and third of the year.

The following week, playing in the Challenger 125 in Genoa, Wild won his second Challenger in a row and the fourth of the year, defeating former world top 10 Fabio Fognini in the final and becoming the tennis player with the most Challenger titles in 2023 to date.

As a result of those two Challenger titles he reached world No. 76, climbing 30 spots in the rankings on 11 September 2023.

In the final stretch of the 2023 season, he played four ATPs on fast indoor courts (Stockholm, Basel, Paris-Bercy and Metz), a first in his career, aiming to evolve and better adapt to this type of court.

In 2024, Wild entered the Australian Open main draw for the first time in his life, having been drawn to face the fifth seed, Andrey Rublev. Wild took the match to a tie-break in the fifth set which he lost to Rublev.
