Dennis Novikov (born 6 November 1993 in Moscow, Russia) is an American professional tennis player of Russian descent.

He won both the singles and doubles titles at the USTA Boys 18s National Championships in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 2012. As a result, he was awarded wild cards into the main draw of the US Open in both singles and doubles. He did not join the UCLA tennis team until March 2012, first competing on March 27.

Tennis career[edit]

Novikov survived his first main-draw match at the US Open in 2012, defeating world no. 86 Jerzy Janowicz of Poland in four sets. In doubles, he teamed with Michael Redlicki. In the first round, they defeated compatriots Bobby Reynolds and Michael Russell in three sets, with a tie-break in the third set.

In 2015, he qualified for the main draw in Indian Wells. That year, Novikov also captured his first two titles on the ATP Challenger Tour in back-to-back weeks. He won the inaugural Cary Challenger the week of September 14 followed by the Columbus Challenger the week of September 21. Novikov defeated Ryan Harrison in both finals.[1]

During the 2016 season, Novikov made his debut at Wimbledon by qualifying for the main draw. He advanced to the second round after defeating fellow qualifier Luke Saville in an opening round match.
