Passionate about tennis since he discovered the grace of Stefan Edberg's serve-and-volley game in the late 1980s, French and Toulousian Cédric Rouquette quickly understood that his pen had a much better chance of allowing him to be part of the tennis world than his forehand would. Reporter at L'Equipe (2000-2010), editor-in-chief of Eurosport online (2010-2014), he has been the director of the Tennis Majors project since 2020. It is, in a way, a homecoming after having spent six years in the service of the editorial projects of others, at CFJ Paris, at the W School, at the Creafeed agency and in the production company Scrine. He's also known as a great indie pop lover and specialist.
