Jason Kubler Cheering Thread
 
Jason Kubler, 15, from Brisbane is the latest in a long line of Queenslanders to emerge. Following on from the likes of Patrick Rafter, Marc Kimmich, Robert Smeets and Bernard Tomic, Kubler has been quietly going about his business on the ITF Junior Circuit, and more recently, the ITF Men's Circuit. This comes after being the standout player of the 2007 European Young Stars Tour, in which he won a couple of the most prestigous tournaments in the 14&U age group, and led Australia to victory at the 2007 World Junior Tennis Competition. It was the first time Australia has ever claimed the title, our two previous best performances were 3rd in 1995 (with Lleyton Hewitt in the team) and 3rd in 2005.

In his past four tournaments on the ITF Junior Circuit, Jason has made two quarter finals. On the men's circuit, Jason has been winning one or two matches, in qualifying, for the recent QLD 15k's, and just this week he qualified for the main draw of the 15k in Gympie.

Let me tell you that I have seen him play and he is so so good for his age. Powerful, accurate groundstrokes, a strong serve and good movement. He, along with Bernard and Brydan Klein, is the future of Australian men's tennis

Bump!

Sydney young gun Elizabeth Searl (Raymond Terrace) has taken her first national title today, winning the girls' singles title at the Optus 16s Spring Nationals in Sydney today.

Searl, currently ranked 72 in Australia, was too strong for No. 2 seed Jenny Le (Fairfield, NSW), defeating her in straight sets.

"Its feels great to get my first Optus National title,” Searl said. “After getting pipped at the post last year at the Optus Spring Nationals in Traralgon, I am very relieved to have won this one, and it's even better because it's on home soil.”

“I worked through match by match this week and certainly saved my best match for last, it was a great final."

Although going down at the last hurdle, making it to today's match was a fantastic achievement for Le, who was contesting her first Optus Nationals tournament.

In the boys' 16/u final top seed Jason Kubler (Mango Hill, QLD) won in convincing fashion over No.4 seed Todd Volmari (Hawker, ACT).

For Kubler, currently sitting at a career high Australian ranking of 100, the win was his first since returning from injury earlier this year.

"I am thankful all my hard work over the past couple of months is starting to pay off,” Kubler said.

“As each match went on I felt I was improving and getting more and more comfortable out there on the court. It is a long hard road and this win is just the tip of the iceberg for me.

Kubler also paid tribute to his Volmari, “Todd has had an awesome run this week and has really stepped up his level of plays - he was a great opponent today!"

In the boys' doubles final Kubler teamed with Joey Swaysland (Wagga Wagga, NSW) to win in straight sets over Tristan Jackson (City Beach, WA) and Damien Farinola (Netley, SA) 6-4 6-2.


Alyssa Hibberd (Sorell, TAS) and Katy O'Shea (Kalaroo, WA) defeated Teiwa Casey (Kalamunda, WA) and Jenny Le (Fairfield, NSW) 6-0 6-4 in the girls' 16/u doubles final.

Good for Jason to get a win, he was the top seed for a national championship in which he was a year out of his age group. And he didn't drop a set en route to the title.

Pat Rafter did some work with him a while back and said something along the lines of 'let me tell you, this kid has got some real weapons.' Seems Rafter is impressed with him and hoping he can go all the way.

Jason is playing a G4 ITF Junior tournament in Sydney this week, he is the 7th seed.

Best of luck ;)

Jason took out the Oceania Closed Championships in Fiji overnight. Big win for him with the likes of former champions being Bernard Tomic. Will be interesting to see if he will be able to gain an ATP point this year and how he will go at the junior slams next year.

No, he has to win a main draw match to get an ATP points. Plays Balakrishnan, I reckon he has a fair chance. I hope he wins.

Bump!!

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)

Jason today won his semi final 6-3 7-5 against 9th seed Yasutaka Uchiyama.

In tomorrow's final, he faces the 18 year old 8th seed from Japan. Kubler has a good shot, his opponent has dropped 3 sets en route to the final, whilst Jason has dropped only 19 games.

Very impressive results i agree. Seems to be very eloquent and media savvy as well judging by the recent interview I saw with Luke Saville on the TA website.

Good to see these 6/0 score lines and to remember that he is much younger than most of his opposition. Let's hope he can build on it.

He has always had quite a bit of muscle on him. So he has plenty of strength to compete the the older boys.
