Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Horrible loss to Matt Reid. Tood Woodbridge and anyone else who pushed for his wildcard at the Aus Open will be feeling very worried at the moment at what might happen in two and a half weeks.

Lost 60 63 to Matt Reid.


No TA wont worry at all as they are right and can justify everything they do.

If that's the best he can do against a player ranked 533 in his home state tournament, I shudder to think how he'll go against a possible top 20 star at the Australian Open. TA's decision to give a wild card to someone who would be the heavy underdog in any 1st round qualifying match is shocking. Let's hope that Kubler's confidence isn't shattered by the time the Australian Open juniors come around.

If Kubler is unlucky enough to draw Nadal or Federer first round then he will be on centre court and probably on tv. Then tens of thousands of people will see him loose 18 straight games (most likely, especially if it is unforced error stingy Nadal). That is really not fair on the 16 year old.

Well, lets hope he doesn't read this thread, or else his confidence may take a few blows! (Last time I looked I thought this was a CHEERING thread... there are plenty of other TA bitching threads people!!)

We are cheering for him and that cheering means we want to see the right things happen to him that will make him a better player and giving a 16 year old a wildcard into the Australian Open when he hasn't won a maindraw match in futures or challengers and got comprehensively beaten in the qualies of Brisbane is not something that will advance his career. There is just as much chance that it will have an opposite effect and I don't want to see another washed up Aussie junior to add to the long list we already have.

What StatRacket said was the mere truth, nothing wrong with that.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Ok, you've made your points.

I'm as hopeful as the next guy that this kid gets the opportunity to rise to his full potential. But tell me this...
Is it at all possible that he may be able to gain vital experience in the AO main draw, which could assist in controling nerves when it comes to the more likely Jr Open final matches?

The way I see it, Jrs don't have a lot of opportunity to play in front of larger crowds, so nerves have to be a huge factor in the Grand Slam arena. When I was 16, I was 10 foot tall & bullet proof & would have taken on the big guns quite happily just for the unbelievable experience of it - but still been pragmatic about my chances of winning.

Kubler is certainly no hot house flower in the mental stakes. Perhaps this MD experience just might be positive.

Maybe you're right. I've just know that other players in the past have been granted wild cards too early and it hasn't really helped them. Although Kubler does seem like a well grounded and mature person for his age. The embarrassment factor is just one of the reasons why people are annoyed that Kubler got a wild card, the other is that there were plenty of other hard working Aussies that were more deserving this year.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Hey StatRacket totally agree. Nobody i am sure wants to undermine the kid but there is bound to be a lot of resentment from players etc who rightly feel that hedoesn't deserve it yet. If things go as TA plan for him then when he des4rves it he should geet it. Lindahl had to prove that he deserves it, Tomic maybe should havebeen even made to prove it as hisrecent results haven't been greatn but wheren isn the wisdom in just handingn it over to a kid that has NEVER won a seniors match? Has anyone ever heard of this being done in a Grand Slam before? I think whoever is responsible for Jason K might best serve his interests by passing on the wildcard.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Deserve/ doesn't deserve. It's the age-old argument about wildcards in tournaments the world over. The nature of the beast is that there'll always be someone who feels hard done by. Surely players understand that this is out of their hands and wouldn't be so petty as to blame a kid for a choice made by TA?

Sure he hasn't won a seniors match yet, and may not get past the first round, but can anyone give me a name of anyone who missed out who would have been honestly likely to make it to the second round?

And isn't Kubler the discretionary wildcard reserved for the Asia/Pac Jr?

OH MY , I HAVE READ ALOT OF FORUM COMMENTS AND THIS WOULD HAVE TO BE ON OF THE MOST RIDICULOUS...
so TA should W/C juniors in to the mens to settle their nerves for likely junior open final matches ?
Yeah Positive for him but what about the others who are actually concentrating on mens tennis ?

This is like saying the AFL would put a VFL player into the AFL grand final, not so the team can win but so one player can go back and play the VFL final well. ?
