Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Down three break points, now saves one but will be tough to win that game. Ebden and Jones will win both lookoing good early on.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Kubler has a really nice draw against a guy who is playing nowhere near his current ranking. Ram is coming off a 61 61 loss to De Bakker and was defeated by Hensel in his last match of 2009 who Kubler defeated in the Wildcard Playoff. Ram was losing to guys such as Garza, Bopanna, Ito and Martin on hardcourt. The only thing he did near the end of the year was win the Aachen Challenger.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

He lost the first set 6-4 but is up 2-1 40-40 Ram serving i thought Ram was a heeps good player and i knew he lost to Hensel in an ameican challenger tournament at the end of the year but Ram won at Newport last year after wimbledon against Querrey in the final he beat Groth in the second round of that tournament but that was on grass so totally different now its 2-2 0-30 down kubler has been down in basically all of his service games but come back well if he loses this set then i hope it goes to a tie break.Now 40-30 up playing better and what if Kubler got drawn out to someone like Lorenzi, Odesnik, Ram or one of the rochus brothers he could play well against one of them.

And when does the final wildcard get announced for sydney and AUS OPEN?

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Kubler lost to Ram 6-4 3-6 6-3 but that's a very respectable score against a top 80 opponent.

Much better than his effort at Brisbane qualifying.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Kubler did well but this is probably more of a reflection of how terrible Ram is playing at the moment. Ram went on to lose 6-1 6-2 to Mayer in the second round to go with his 6-1 6-1 defeat to De Bakker in his only other match this year. And one of Ram's weapons is his serve.

Kubler still did well to win a set though.

An accurate assessment of the state of play I would agree.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Jason is going to play Ivan Ljubicic in the first round of the Australian Open. If Jason can serve well he might be able to put up a good fight against Ljubicic.

Kubler ready to take the next step

Australian Open wildcard Jason Kubler’s wish of playing Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal in the first round didn’t come true when the main draw for Australian Open 2010 was announced earlier today.

Kubler did, however, have his name drawn alongside one of the 32 seeds – No.24 Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia.

In more than a decade on the ATP tour, Ljubicic has been ranked as high as world No.3, has won nine titles and is a former French Open semi-finalist and Australian Open quarter-finalist.

It’s a daunting proposition for anyone, let alone a 16-year-old playing in his first Grand Slam tournament main draw, but Kubler made some big steps in 2009, and believes he’s ready for the challenge. The Queensland native went on a 36-match winning rampage on the ITF Junior circuit that began in early July in Darwin and finished in November in Jeju-Do, South Korea.

The hot streak included five junior ITF titles and Australia’s Junior Davis Cup victory, in which he played a starring role.

“That [the Junior Davis Cup] was special to me, just representing the country and coming out victorious,” Kubler told australianopen.com.

More recently, Kubler has spent time as hitting partner to the stars at last week’s Brisbane International. Kubler withstood some searching hit-outs with Andy Roddick and James Blake in front of a growing number of interested onlookers keen to see Australia’s future share the court with the world’s present.

And while these experiences are a rare privilege for someone as young as Kubler, the teenager is not one to let it go to his head.

“I’m getting used to hitting with the big guys now ... I don’t think he [Roddick] was going full for them, but you could still see, especially with his serve, I think he was going three-quarter, but it’s still bloody fast.”

Roddick was also impressed with what he saw coming from the other side of the net: “He seemed like he had some good work on the ball and he just needs some opportunity.”

To prepare himself for the biggest challenge of his career to date, Kubler has been working with Queensland’s National Academy and spent some time with Pat Rafter, who believes Kubler will benefit from his Australian Open experience.

“He is our best player that we’ve got coming through with [Bernard] Tomic. He’s a great talent,” says Rafter.

“He may not do overly well here, but he needs to see what’s going on. He needs to play these matches and he needs to get the experience.”

No doubt Kubler will draw a lot from this experience as he begins to make the difficult transition from junior star (at No.3 on the junior rankings, he’s the highest-ranked 16-year-old in the world) to senior player.

When asked about making the step up to Grand Slam level and whether nerves will be an issue, Kubler responds honestly and sounds like someone ready to take that vital next step.

“The nerves will be there [before the match], but hopefully I can overcome that and play my best when I’m out there.”

Um... so he was hoping to draw Federer or Nadal? Up to three in juniors now and Berta (1) and Mina (2) aren't playing in the juniors so he'll be number one seed.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Seems as if he is a pretty level headed kid, just hope he doesn't get embarressed out there and get demoralised for the juniors. Should have gotten a wildcard into the qualifying by TA but hey, thats the youth policy for ya.
