Taylor Fritz: A Candid Conversation with Miami Living

Updated: Mar 18

Miami Living recently interviewed Taylor Fritz to uncover his thoughts on Miami and beyond.

On Miami

“I’ve always enjoyed being in Miami. I now live there, so I’m excited to be able to drive to the tournament and then drive back home to my place after playing. The city has always been a place that I really enjoy going to. It is a lot of fun, and I have a lot of friends there. It is very different from the other US cities that I’ve been to. And what makes it special to me is that I have a lot of great memories.”

Off the Court

“I chill at my place, play some video games, and relax, but I could definitely see myself going and playing some golf with friends. And there are so many good restaurants like Komodo and Zuma. Going to South Beach is fun. There is just a lot to do there.”

On Climate Change

“It’s important as players that we do the best we can because we play a sport that requires so much travel, which has a big impact on the environment. So it is important that we try to do as much as we possibly can to offset it.”

More on Fritz

Taylor Harry Fritz, born October 28, 1997, is currently America’s top tennis player, currently ranked 9th in singles by the ATP.

In a remarkable journey since his ATP debut in 2015, Taylor Fritz has consistently surged through the ranks of men’s tennis, marking significant milestones along the way. Notably, in 2016, he became the youngest American since 1988 to reach an ATP final, showcasing his early promise. This momentum continued as he achieved his first top-25 ranking in 2019, accompanied by his maiden ATP Tour title at the Eastbourne International. Fritz’s breakthrough year came in 2022 when he clinched the prestigious Indian Wells title, reached the quarterfinal at the Australian Open, and ascended to the top 10 for the first time in his career.

This trajectory persisted into 2023 as he claimed five ATP titles, soared to a career-high ranking of world No. 5, and made a notable quarterfinal appearance at the US Open. In 2024, Fritz’s prowess was reaffirmed as he advanced to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, defeating established players like Stefanos Tsitsipas, solidifying his status as a prominent force in men’s tennis.

Fritz has a son born in 2017 from his previous marriage to professional tennis player Raquel Pedraza. Since June 2020, he has been in a relationship with fashion influencer Morgan Riddle.
