About Jean-Yves Aubone

Jean-Yves Aubone was born and raised in Miami, FL. His father, Guillermo Aubone, was ranked 100 in the world in singles and doubles as a professional player, and competed in all four grand slams. Guillermo coached Jean-Yves throughout most of his junior career. As a junior, Jean-Yves was one of the top junior tennis players in the country in every category and had the honor of playing in the junior US Open singles event. Instead of going pro at the age of 18, he opted to go to Florida State University from 2006-2010.

He graduated with a degree in Sport Management and pursued a career path in finance soon after college. After spending two years working in the field, he decided to turn back to tennis and make it as a professional tennis player. As of this moment, he is still on the ATP Tour with career high rankings of 459 in singles and 288 in doubles. Jean-Yves currently holds three ITF Pro Circuit singles titles and 12 doubles titles. He currently trains at the Ginepri Performance Tennis Academy just outside of Atlanta, GA.
