Eric Prodon is a French tennis professional that reached an amazing career high of #83 in the ATP tour ranking. Prodon’s career on the pro tour was a rocky one with rankings ranging from the 200’s and 300’s throughout 200 and 2005 but injuries kept him off the court for quite some time. He spent most of 2006 ranked outside the top 500.
Prodon returned to the tour in mid-February 2007, ranked #683, and won Italy F1 in his first tournament back from a 10-month layoff. His ranking continued to slip, despite some Futures success, and by the time he got to Scotland for a Futures tournament in May, he was #721.
But he then went on a tear on the Futures circuit, winning 4 of 7 titles and finishing as the runner-up in the other three while touring Scotland, Algeria, Poland, Belarus, and France, compiling a 32-3 match record during that stretch, to improve his ranking to #290 by mid-July.
Prodon continued to be injury-free and making some progress in early 2008. He started the year winning a Challenger in Miami. In May, Prodon was given a Wild Card entry into the French Open. Prodon was coached by Cyril Saulnier.
