As a youth

Fucsovics started to play tennis at the age of five. He came through the ranks quickly and at the age of 8 he played in a field 3–4 years older.

In 2003 Fucsovics won his age group National Championship and the Nike Junior Tour. With that he got the chance to represent Hungary on the World Final in Sun City, South Africa. Fucsovics also showed talent in basketball as a youth, but chose to make tennis his career path.

Junior tennis

Fucsovics's first major success came in 2009, when he won the US Open Boys' Doubles title, with Hsieh Cheng-peng of Chinese Taipei. In 2010 he reached the semi-final of the Australian Open Boys' Singles, and few months later he won the Wimbledon Boys' Singles, defeating qualifier Benjamin Mitchell in a straight-sets final. Fucsovics in fact did not lose a set throughout the entire tournament. He also participated in the doubles' event alongside Czech Libor Salaba, and reached the quarter-finals.

Fucsovics was also an integral part of the Hungarian U-18 national tennis team. The team in fact won the prestigious Galea/Valerio Cup in Venice to claim Hungary's first ever boys European Summer Cups title. The other members of the team were Máté Zsiga and Levente Gödry.

Fucsovics worked his way to No. 1 in the ITF Junior Rankings in July 2010 and as a result entered the Youth Olympics as tournament's top seed. He suffered a surprise loss, however, in the first round, to eventual quarterfinalist Oliver Golding.
