Carlos Moya Llompart (Catalan: Carles Moyà, Spanish: Carlos Moyá; born 27 August 1976) is a former World No. 1 tennis player from Spain. He was the French Open singles champion in 1998 and was the singles runner-up at the 1997 Australian Open. In 2004, he helped his country win the Davis Cup. He currently resides in Switzerland.[1] Although he plays with his right hand, he is naturally left-handed - the opposite of fellow Majorcan Rafael Nadal.

He is one of four currently active players to have won over 500 matches at ATP level. Roger Federer is top with 664, while Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick, have 514 and 505 respective wins prior to the 2009 U.S. Open. This ranks Moya second out of all currently active players at 574 wins. A running total can be found here.

Personal life

Moyá was born in Palma, Spain. He began playing tennis at six years old with his parents. Carlos turned professional in 1995 and won his first tour title later that year in Buenos Aires. He previously dated Italian Flavia Pennetta. The two split in 2007.[citation needed] He is dating Spanish actress Carolina Cerezuela and the couple are expecting their first child together.[2]

Tennis career

In 1997, Moyá reached his first Grand Slam final at the Australian Open, defeating world number three Michael Chang in the semifinals in straight sets, before losing in straight sets to Pete Sampras.

In 1998, Moyá won the French Open. He defeated fellow-Spaniard Álex Corretja in the final in straight sets. He also won his first Tennis Masters Series tournament that year at Monte Carlo. He reached the semifinals of the US Open, losing to Mark Philippoussis. He concluded the year by finishing runner-up at the ATP World Championships (now known as the Tennis Masters Cup), where he lost in a five-set final to Corretja.

In March 1999, after finishing runner-up at Indian Wells, Moyá reached the World No. 1 singles ranking. He held the top spot for two weeks. Later that year, he entered the French Open as defending champion, and lost in the fourth round to Andre Agassi (who would go on to be that year's champion). At the US Open, Moyá withdrew in the second round with a back injury and only played in two tournaments for the rest of the year.

In 2000, despite being hampered with a stress fracture in his lower back from the 1999 US Open through the early part of 2000, Moyá still managed to finish top 50 in the world for the fifth straight year. He reached the fourth round of the US Open, where he held a match point in the fourth set but eventually lost to Todd Martin in an epic five-set marathon 6–7, 6–7, 6–1, 7–6, 6–2. Moyá's best result for the rest of 2000 was winning at Portugal.

In 2001, Moyá won the title at Umag. He also finished runner-up at Barcelona, where he lost in a four-hour marathon final to countryman Juan Carlos Ferrero.

2002 saw Moyá win four titles from six finals. He captured his second career Tennis Masters Series title, and the biggest hardcourt title of his career, at Cincinnati, where he defeated World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt in the final.

Moyá captured three clay court titles in 2003. He also helped Spain reach the final of the Davis Cup, compiling a 6–0 singles record. In the semifinals, he won the deciding rubber against Gastón Gaudio as Spain beat Argentina 3–2. He beat Mark Philippoussis on grass court in the final. But that proved to be Spain's only point as they lost the final 3–1 to Australia.

In 2004, Moyá helped Spain go one better and win the Davis Cup. In the final, he won two critical singles rubbers against Andy Roddick and Mardy Fish, as Spain beat the United States 3–2. The year also saw Moyà capture his third career Masters Series title at Rome, where he defeated David Nalbandian in the final (6–3, 6–3, 6–1). He was the only player on the tour to win at least 20 matches on both clay courts and hardcourts that year.

In July 2004, Moyá's kind hearted gesture to hit with ball boy Sandeep Ponniah at the 2004 Tennis Masters Series Toronto event captured audiences during an injury timeout against opponent Nicholas Kiefer of Germany. To the crowd's surprise, Ponniah shuffled Moyá across the baseline and received an ovation for an overhead smash on a Moyá lob.

Moyá won his 18th career title in January 2005 at Chennai. He donated his prize money for the win to the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake victims.

In January 2007, Moyá was the runner-up at the Medibank International in Sydney, Australia, losing to defending champion James Blake.

In May 2007, at the Hamburg Masters, he defeated Mardy Fish, World No. 12 Tomáš Berdych, World No. 9 Blake, and World No. 6 Novak Djokovic, a run which saw him reach his first Masters semifinal since 2004 Indian Wells. After reaching the semifinals against Roger Federer, Moyà lost 4–6, 6–4, 6–2.

Moyà lost against Nadal in straight sets in the quarterfinals of the 2007 French Open.

During Wimbledon, Moyá lost in the first round to Tim Henman in a 5-set thriller, the fifth set stretching to 24 games (Henman won 13–11). Despite the loss, Moyá had no points to defend (he had not played a grasscourt match in a few years), resulting in moving to World No. 20, his first time inside the top 20 since 13 June 2005.

In July 2007, Moyá won the Studena Croatia Open in Umag, Croatia, defeating Andrei Pavel (6–4 6–2). The win brought him to World No. 18 in the rankings, his highest rank since 23 May 2005, when he was World No. 15.

In August 2007, Moyá lost to Marcos Baghdatis in the first round of the Montréal Masters. At Cincinnati, one week later and just two weeks shy of his 31st birthday, he beat David Nalbandian 7–6 (4), 7–6 (2), World No. 3 Djokovid 6–4, 6–1, and Juan Martín del Potro 7–5, 3–6, 7–5 (after being down an early break in the third set) to set up a quarterfinal clash with Lleyton Hewitt.

In 2008 at the Cincinnati Masters, Moyá defeated Nikolay Davydenko 7-6(8), 4-6, 6-2 which was played over the course of two days because of rain. Hours after his match with Davydenko, Moyá beat Igor Andreev 6–4, 7–6 (2).

Moyá made a slow start in 2009. He failed to progress beyond the second round of his first 4 tournaments, including a first round loss at the Australian Open. In March 2009, he announced that he would have an indefinite hiatus from tennis to recover from injured tendons and ischium in his hip.[3] He returned to professional tennis in January 2010 losing 6-3, 7-6 against Janko Tipsarevic in the first round of the Chennai Open, then losing in the first round of the 2010 Australian Open to Illya Marchenko, 7-6, 7-5, 6-3.

He comes from a family with a long line of tennis players, including his older cousin Gregory Moya, who runs the Moya Tennis Academy in Miami Lakes, Florida.
