Jason is in the semi finals of this week's LTA International Junior Championships in Bangkok, Thailand.

Seeded 6, Kubler was pushed to three sets in his opening match before winning 2-6 6-4 6-0. In the second round he had a dominant 6-1 6-0 win before being pushed to 3 sets in his quarter final, winning 6-3 3-6 6-3. He is now on a 25 match winning streak in juniors.

He lost his doubles semi final yesterday

Kubler is bringing it! Ranked 32 in juniors and not a single younger player ranked above him. I hope he enters the three Australian Futurs events starting in mid-November so he can get some men's ranking points because he's only played one Futures this year (qualified then lost first round in September). Just noticed that on his ITF profile it says his favourite surface is clay... interesting...

Kubler won his semi final 7-6(6) 6-1 against 5th seed Chuhan Wang from China. In the final he has to play Yasutaka Uchiyama from Japan, the No.3 seed. Kubler beat Uchiyama in the semi finals of last week's Osaka Mayor's Cup in Japan, 6-3 7-5, so one would give him a great chance of winning his 4th consecutive ITF Junior Boy's Singles Title.

Congrats Jason, and good luck for the final
If he loses, he will still jump from No.32 on the ITF Junior Rankings to No.19.
If he wins he will rise a little higher to No.18.

He is entered in one final ITF Junior Tournament in South Korea next week. A win would see him soar into the top 10. A runner up position would also see him into the top 10

Jason KUBLER (6) d. defeated Yasutaka UCHIYAMA (JPN) (3) 7-6(3) 6-2!

I saw Kubler being interviewed on a youtube video. He pronounces his name Kow-bler (rhymes with low not cow).

Wow, four tournament wins in a row. 5 if you include junior davis cup. I wonder if he can win the B2 tournament in Korea next week, that would be unblievable if he does. Gotta be one of the favorites for the Australian Open juniors next year now. Will be interesting to see if he gets in qualy wildcards into either Brisbane or Aussie Open.

Keep it up Jason try and catch Bernard.

This Asian/Oceania Closed Championships 2009 in Korea is a B1 tournament. B1 events are worth 180 ranking points for winning. Kubler currently has 650 points with a 6th best result of 20 points. Therefore, if he wins he will gain 160 points, bringing his total to 810. That many points will place him at number 4 in the Junior world rankings! Please let me know if I'm mistaken.

Kubler is currently in the Round of 16; only four more wins to go!

Jason won his third round match 6-0 6-2 against 14th seed Sumeet Shinde from India. Impressive scoreline.

Tomorrow in the quarter finals he faces Ben McLachlan (No.8 seed) from New Zealand. Should win that as well.

By making the quarter finals Kubler will rise from No.17 to No.12 on the ITF Junior Rankings. If he makes the semi finals he will be tied 11th. If he makes the final he will be No.6. And if he wins the title, yes he will be No.4.

Pretty amazing to think he could be in the top 10 when only a fortnight ago he was No.106

Whats this kids game like, in comparison to an established senior player? The way he is going, sound like he could shoot ahead of Tomic, who seems to be developing a bit more slowly recently with his movement issues and growing.

Kubler wins again! And he isn't just winning, he is thrashing his opponents:

16 W (14)Sumeet SHINDE (IND) 6-0 6-2
QF W (5)Ben MCLACHLAN (NZL) 6-3 6-1
S vs. (6) Chuhan WANG

He is a grinder from the back of the court, from what I've heard his game is very similar to Rafa Nadal's. His favorite surface is clay as well and he has a two handed backhand. I think Jason is still very far behind Tomic when you take into account that Bernard has won a grand slam match and a challenger title and Jason hasn't even won a professional seniors main draw match (not that I don't think that is going to change very soon).

If you look at our juniors we've got Bernard, Jason and Luke all doing very well for their age. Lets just hope all three can play on the seniors circuit and bring us back the Davis Cup!

Semi-finals of B1 event in Korea:

Jason KUBLER (AUS) (3) d. Chuhan WANG (CHN) (6) 6-3 4-6 6-1

Someone actually took a set off Kubler but our boy romped it home 6-1 in the third. In the final Kubler plays 4th seed Yasutaka UCHIYAMA (JPN) who's won 15 of his last 17 junior matches (both losses coming against Kubler) as well as reaching the quarters of a futures last month and getting his first ATP points in the process. Uchiyama and Kubler have been the two standouts of the junior Asian swing in the last few weeks. Kubler won both finished events while Uchiyama has only lost to Kubler (in the semis and final). Both times they played were similar scorelines: 6-3 7-5 and 7-6(3) 6-2.

Personally, I don't think the junior ranking system is the greatest. For example, the winner of this tournament will receive the same amount of points as a Grand Slam runner-up. Nevertheless it will be an awesome achievement if Kubler wins the final and breaks the world top 5.

Final of Asian/Oceania Closed Championships 2009:

Jason KUBLER (AUS) (3) d. Yasutaka UCHIYAMA (JPN) (4) 6-2 6-4

Great stuff Kubler! Conquered the juniors (5 straight titles including Grade A and B1 + junior Davis Cup), now go get some ATP ranking points.

Kubler is on the entry list for both the Australia F9 and F10. The F9 starts on November 16, so it's only one week off. With no ATP ranking points as yet, Kubler will have to play qualifying unless given wildcards. Personally I think authorities would be crazy not to give Kubler at least one wildcard given his recent success.
