Cyril Suk

Cyril Suk III (born 29 January 1967 in Prague, Czechoslovakia) is a former professional tennis player. A doubles specialist, Suk has won one Grand Slam men's doubles title and four Grand Slam mixed doubles titles during his career.

Suk comes from a prominent Czech tennis family. His mother, Věra Suková, was a women's singles finalist at Wimbledon in 1962. His father, Cyril Suk II, was President of the Czechoslovakian Tennis Federation. His sister, Helena Suková, was an even more successful professional player on the women's tour who teamed-up with Suk to win three Grand Slam mixed doubles titles in the 1990s.

In 1985, Suk partnered fellow-Czech Petr Korda to win the boy's doubles title at the French Open. Suk and Korda were ranked the joint-World No. 1 junior doubles players that year.

Suk claimed his first Grand Slam mixed doubles title in 1991 at the French Open, partnering sister Helena. In 1992, he teamed up with Larisa Neiland to win the Wimbledon mixed doubles title. He went on to win the Wimbledon mixed doubles crown on two further occasions partnering Helena – in 1996 and 1997. In 1998, Suk teamed up with Sandon Stolle to win the US Open men's doubles title.

Suk's career-high doubles ranking was World No. 7 in 1994. (In singles, his career-high ranking was World No. 180 in 1988. He has largely focused on doubles play during his career.)

Suk was selected as captain of the Czech Republic's Davis Cup team for the 2003 season.

Suk married his wife Lenka in 1991. They have a son, Cyril IV (born 1992), and a daughter, Natalie Mia (born 1996).
