Filip Peliwo (/ / FIL-ip PEL-ih-voh; Polish pronunciation: [ˈfilip pɛˈlivɔ]; born January 30, 1994) is a Canadian professional tennis player. Peliwo became the first Canadian male and second Canadian ever to win a Grand Slam in singles at any level with his 2012 Wimbledon boys' title win. This was Canada's second Grand Slam title in two days, one day after Eugenie Bouchard's. With the victory, Peliwo reached the No. 1 combined junior world ranking in July 2012, the first time a Canadian has been top ranked. He won his second straight junior Grand Slam title at the 2012 US Open. Peliwo was also runner-up in the boys singles events at the 2012 Australian Open and French Open. He reached a career-high ATP singles ranking of No. 161 on May 21, 2018.
Peliwo was born in Vancouver to Polish parents Mark and Monika. He played his early tennis through his teens at the North Shore Winter Club in North Vancouver BC and was part of the National Training Centre in Montreal from 2009 to 2012. He is the only one of three siblings not born in Poland.
Peliwo reached the semifinals of the Orange Bowl in December 2011. At the beginning of 2012, he won the Grade 1 tournament in Traralgon, Australia after beating junior world No. 1 Luke Saville. He then reached the final of the junior Australian Open, where he lost to Saville. He reached his second straight Grand Slam final at the French Open, but lost this time to Kimmer Coppejans. After reaching his third Grand Slam final in a row in 2012 at Wimbledon, Peliwo won his first Grand Slam junior title there with a win over defending champion Luke Saville. He became the second Canadian to win a junior Grand Slam singles title, following Eugenie Bouchard who the day before won the Wimbledon girls' title. Peliwo reached his fourth straight junior Grand Slam final at the US Open, where he defeated Liam Broady to win his second Grand Slam title.
As a junior, he compiled a singles win/loss record of 92–44.
