Jordan Thompson

Seeing as the thread hasn't been created, I thought I'd do it.

Jordan is an 18 year old from Sydney who has skyrocketed up the rankings after winning a match at the qualifying for the Australian Open.

He gained 8 points from that win and then followed that up with a Round of 16 effort in Burnie and a recent semi final spot at the Ipswich Future event.

Currently 660 in the world, Thompson could be one to keep an eye out for in the next few months.

Tennis Tipping:

Singles Rank: (96); Career High (93)- Winner Como (CH) 2013, Mansfield (CH) 2013, Taipei City (CH) 2014.

Doubles Rank: (92); Career High (90) - Winner of Como (CH) 2013, Quimper (CH) 2014, Le Gosier (CH) 2014 with AussieAdz.

Semi Finalist in Queens and Bogota ATP.

Hopman Cup finalist in 2014.

Re: Jordan Thompson - Flying up the rankings in 2013

This week, he's in Panova for the Italy F4 Future event. Not only did he win both of his matches to qualify for the main draw, he backed that up tonight with a win over Francesco Picco 6-4 3-6 6-4 to move to the second round.

Will play Kamil Capkovic in the next match, which he could win.

Should add that Jordan was ranked as high as 18 in the world as a junior, so definitely someone to look out for.

Re: Jordan Thompson - Flying up the rankings in 2013

nice, i didn't know he won his round 1 match yet. he seems to have made a pretty smooth transition from the juniors to the seniors without playing many tournaments. he'd only played five tournaments before the Australian Open and then went bang against Renavand.

He's made an excellent transition to the men's tour this year. He turns 19 in three days.

Re: Jordan Thompson - Flying up the rankings in 2013

he seems to be improving with every match, he struggled in the first round of qualifying but 4 and 3 against Capkovic is a pretty convincing scoreline. first overseas QF, and in his first overseas main draw too

Re: Jordan Thompson - Flying up the rankings in 2013

Pretty sure that Jordan is home having a rest having played 5 futures in 6 weeks (15 matches). Hoping to see him again before the Aussie summer though!

Re: Jordan Thompson - Flying up the rankings in 2013

Jordan has had a good year.

Has 0 points to defend and has collected 41 so far this year.

Not sure of his planned schedule. Is he going to US College in the spring(ours)/autumn(fall(in US) ?

Jordan took out his first ITF title in the Austria F5 future event. Will be about 530 in the rankings next week. Get around him.

Well done young Thompson. Not bad in his first year on the tour.

Re: Jordan Thompson - Flying up the rankings in 2013

Jordan walks away with another $15k Futures title, this time on home soil at Alice Springs, with a solid 64 61 win over 27 year-old Jap Yuichi Ito (ATP 549).
That will help his ranking...
Well done Thompson
