Since his first round loss in Darwin, Jason has lead Australia to victory in the Junior Davis Cup in Mexico, the second time we have won the title in three years.
Jason was our No.1 and he won all 5 of his singles matches in straight sets, including a 7-6 7-5 win over the British No.1 in the final.
Previously, there has only ever been one boy good enough to lead his country to victory as the No.1 player at the World Junior Team Championships and the Junior Davis Cup...and that was Rafael Nadal. Kubler led Australia to a win in the World Junior Team Championships in 2007 and this year became the second player to win the Junior Davis Cup at No.1, pretty good company, huh?
This week Jason is playing at the Grade A Osaka Mayor's Cup in Japan. He has dropped just 11 games in 4 matches to make the semi finals...including his 6-0 6-0 win in the quarter finals.
In today's semi finals, Jason plays 9th seeded Japanese Yasutaka Uchiyama. Realistically, I think Kubler has a good shot at making the final and even winning the title, thus expanding on his 20 match winning streak in junior competition (without losing a set).
In the next two weeks Jason will play in a Grade 2 ITF Junior Tournament in Thailand and a Grade B1 ITF Junior Tournament in Korea. He is currently ranked No.106 on the ITF Junior Rankings but will jump to around 60 with his results so far this week. Realistically, I can even see him making the top 20 by the end of the season.
So well done and good luck for the rest of the season
Keep your eyes peeled because 2010 is going to be a big year for Jason, provided he stays injury free (which inhibited him at the start of this year)
