Jordan does not have any siblings. He is the only child his parents had in the course of their relationship, and neither his father nor mother has any other child.
Jordan Fritz’s Father is an Award-winning Tennis Player
Jordan Fritz father, Taylor Harris Fritz, is a fast-rising American professional tennis player. He was born on October 28, 1997, and is currently 53 years old. As much as he appears to be the master of his own game, Taylor’s amazing skills as an athlete could be credited to his genes. His father, Guy Henry Fritz, was once a tennis player who later switched his career path to becoming a coach.
On the other hand, Taylor’s mother, Kathy May Fritz, was globally listed among the top ten in the tennis world in 2016. She also won 7 WTA singles titles throughout her career as a professional tennis player. On Taylor’s part, he started playing as early as when he was just 2 years old. For his education, he attended Torrey Pines High School. In his second year, he switched to an online program so he could focus more on his budding career and participate in the ITF full-time events just after he clocked 15.
Among his career achievements, here are some of the notable ones:
- Youngest to win a men’s singles title since Djokovic (2011)
- Youngest American to win men’s singles title since Chang (1996)
- Youngest American to win men’s singles title since Roddick (2006)
Who is Jordan’s Mother, Raquel Pedraza?
Jordan Fritz’s mother is Raquel Pedraza and just like his father, she is also a popular professional tennis player. Raquel was born in Fountain Valley, California. She was born on January 28, 1998, and is currently 25 years old.
Unlike Taylor, Raquel was not born into an athletic family. She picked interest in tennis only because of her brother’s persuasion. However, she is gradually making a name for herself in the sport.
Are Jordan Fritz’s Parents Married?
As we mentioned earlier, Jordan’s parents are no longer married. However, they were still very much married at the time of his birth. Jordan Fritz’s dad, Taylor Fritz, proposed to his high school girlfriend, Raquel Pedraza, under the Eiffel Tower when he was just 18 years old.
Eventually, they tied the knot in a church in Santa Fe, California on the 17th of July, 2016. This happened just some months after they had welcomed their first and only child, Jordan Fritz. Sadly, the marriage between the tennis star couple was not as rosy as it promised to be at first and as a result, they opted to go their separate ways following a peaceful divorce process, which was completed in 2019.
Since his separation from Jordan’s mom, Taylor has not remarried. However, he is currently in a relationship with American supermodel Morgan Riddle. On the other hand, nothing much has been heard of Raquel’s social life. She lives a relatively quiet life and has not said anything about being romantically involved with anyone.
Jordan Fritz Spends the Bulk of His Time With His Mother
Being an athlete comes with its ups and downs and for Taylor Fritz, the downside of it seemed to somewhat outweigh the ups. After welcoming his son, Taylor revealed that as a result of the nature of his career, which demanded him to travel all over the world, he had very little time to spend with his wife and son.
Although spending such an amount of time away from one’s loved ones could hurt one’s career, it did not seem to be so with the star tennis player. A few months after Jordan was born, Taylor told Tennis X that his new fatherhood status has not affected his career in any way. According to him, “Nothing’s really changed at all for me. My wife’s been handling everything. She handles all of the off-court stuff so I can be on court more than I was before.
However, as much fun as it may seem for a young athlete to be crushing it career-wise, it could never compare to the fulfillment that comes with spending quality time with his family. And so, after his marriage to Raquel ended in 2019 Taylor took some time off work in 2020 to just lay back and enjoy some quality time with his son. At the time, he decided not to pay any attention to work-related stuff, rather, he planned on just sleeping in and playing video games with his son.
Is Jordan Fritz on Social Media?
Jordan is not on any social media platform. Unlike the norm with several celebrity parents, Jordan’s parents prefer to give him a private life away from the paparazzi. However, his dad, Taylor Fritz, has an Instagram account, @taylor-fritz, which boasts over 200k followers. His mother, on the other hand, also has an Instagram account, @raquel_pedraza, which has an impressive number of followers, but it is set to private and as a result, its content can only be viewed by those that follow her.
