Julio Leonardo Peralta Martínez (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxuljo leoˈnarðo peˈɾalta marˈtines];[2] born 9 September 1981, in Paramaribo)[1] is a professional tennis player from Chile.[3] Peralta has captured four doubles title at ATP World Tour and one singles challenger title.

Peralta has found success in the late stage of his career in doubles tournaments, reaching no. 29 in the ATP Rankings.

Career[edit]

Peralta turned pro in 2000, and had his best year in his singles career in 2003, year which he won a challenger tournament, the BH Tennis Open International Cup in Belo Horizonte. In 2005, he retired, then made a comeback in 2007 at futures tournaments. Julio competed throughout 2008, but he suffered an injury the next year.

He made his comeback (after long, exhausting, two-year injury) in the 2011 Sparkassen Open, winning comfortably the first two qualifying rounds, against Stefan Seifert and David Goffin (no. 220). In the main tournament, he defeated Victor Crivoi.

After a long hiatus, he returned in the 2014 Napa Challenger doubles tournament partnering Matt Seeberger; in early November, he won the titles in both singles and doubles USA F30 tournament. He did not lose a single set in main draw in both tournaments; in Chile F9 tournament he made the singles final, losing to Hans Podlipnik-Castillo and the following week won the doubles tournament in Chile F10 partnering Seeberger.

2015: Challenger Tour[edit]

Peralta played many challenger tournaments this year, reaching seven finals, winning four and partnering Horacio Zeballos in three of these titles, with these victories, Peralta rose almost 400 positions in the ranking, ending the year at no. 105.

2016: Three ATP Doubles titles[edit]

He broke through onto the ATP World Tour doubles circuit in 2016, winning the Brazil Open, the Swiss Open and the Moselle Open with Horacio Zeballos. He won his first match in a Grand Slam at the French Open, partnering Denis Kudla, but the duo lost in the second round. Peralta also won six challenger tournaments, partnering Zeballos in four, in one with Dennis Novikov, and at Santiago with countryman Hans Podlipnik. Peralta tied with Matt Reid and John-Patrick Smith for most Challenger titles in doubles for the year. Peralta finished the year ranked 44th in the world in doubles, and the highest ranked Chilean player in singles or doubles, record he has held since then.

2017: Another title, French Open quarterfinals[edit]

Peralta and Zeballos reached the final of the Ecuador Open, but lost to James Cerretani and Philipp Oswald, they went on to win the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships. At the French Open, he partnered Zeballos to reach the quarterfinals, this saw his ranking jump to a career high of no. 35.

In the rest of the year, Peralta reached two more tournament finals with Zeballos, and another one with Santiago González, with whom reached quarterfinals at Shangai Masters too, with these results, Peralta ended the year at no. 29, his best position yet.

2018[edit]

Peralta had a bad beginning of the year, with semifinals at 2018 ASB Classic as the only notable result. Julio and Horacio Zeballos reunited for attempting a defense of their title in the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships, but they lost in first round. They also tried to imitate their past year quarterfinals run on the French Open, but they lost in second round.
