Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

favorite for 18s ? thats a lot of pressure when just last week, he lost lost to another junior isn't it.
Who else is playing the 18s, any one know the seeds ?,

good for Kubler when he does win it,
good for all TAs investment into this young group...

Wouldnt Sean Berman be a favorite too, saw he played under USA in Futures last week, yet playing under vic ? for 18s, how does that work,,, heard he is ok too
would be good to see him and Kubler play.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

I think Kubler would be the slight favourite. He is the world number four junior against what is effectively a junior field. I don't know if anyone in this field would have done better than what he did against Propoggia and Smeets although his loss last week was pretty bad against Chaplin who didn't get through the qualies of this tournament.

As for Berman I'm not too sure although his results do seem decent and he has drawn the same group as Kubler. A wierd history with him being born in South Africa then moving to New Zealand and now representing USA but playing in Australian championships.

I also think Ben Mitchell has a great chance.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Yeah well junior itf ranking must hold more weight to TA than ATP Ranking as jason moved from NO 10 spot on list to being seeded 1 above all who hold ATP Ranking...
They announced this at the player meeting the night before tournament started. Very strange move, not very fair if you ask me on rest of field when acceptances were done on ATP.

Will be interesting what they pull on the mens play off now when you see this.

Anyhow hopefully Kubler does well, and that it is good tennis thats the most importantt thing for Aus tennis, but there are plenlty who could do well, Hoh , Eames, Barton, Chaplin ,Sanders, Saville, Berman, it will be interesting, Barker , Stoker out injured I think.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Video of Kubler playing @ tennis.com.au. From 1:20 to 1:50. Watch him hit two serves, four forehands, two backhands and a backhand volley.

Optus 18s Aust Boys Singles Final: [1] Jason Kubler (QLD) d [4] Benjamin Mitchell (QLD) 6-3 6-1 (1hr 2mins) Well done! Worthy of the No.1 seed.

Well done to Kubler , and great to see him get the w/c for mens play off, mind you thought the w/c into mens play off was only for the winner, yet all that made semis got them ,,,,, so why have to play off TA ?

happened last year as well.

Good for Kubler and hopefully he can hold his own in the playoff.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Nice to see Jason carry his 18s form into the playoff with a 6-1 2-6 6-3 win over Kaden Hensel, who has been solid on the future circuit this year. Jason will play James Duckworth tommorow and if he can pick up a win he should advance to the quarters of the playoff.

Really hoping Jason can make quarters in a tough group and show he is legit at this level.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Great win and should make the Quarters now with his next two opponents being Duckworth and an out of sorts Klein.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

It's a shame he missed out but perhaps it is better for him to play the Australian Open qualies next year instead. It'll be a good chance for him to get an ATP ranking. I know that's how Tomic got his first ranking points almost two years ago. Tomic got to play the Australian Open at 16 and even got a win but he was extremely fortunate with his draw and was more progressed at the time having won the Australian Open juniors a year earlier.

Great year Kubler and I still think he can have a great Australian summer (already a good one after his u18 win). I think he should have a real shot at the Australian Open juniors.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

ur right Stat Racket. dont want kubler to be embarrased on the world stage. to go through qualies will be invaluable for his development.

Cool Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

There's no rush. Remember Kubler is 16. I'd rather see him progress slowly over the next couple of years in favour of longer term sustained top 100 success. Frankly I think he has the potential to go even further, but rushing him now as an Aussie pin-up boy is not going to help anyone. Hopefully his "people" and TA will keep cool heads.

Re: Jason Kubler Cheering Thread

Your spot on StatRacket. These last few weeks have been awesome experience for him, regardless of the results. It's only going to help his development - and should do him well in the Junior AO.
