Sergei Bubka, Jr.!
So does the 16-year-old son of the famous Ukrainian pole-vaulter, Sergei Bubka, follow in his father's footsteps? Well he chooses sports, but not pole-vaulting. Sergei Bubka, Jr. is a tennis player. He qualified for the Australian Open juniors but had a tough draw, runner-up and later Wimbledon champ Florin Mergea, and lost in the first round. But Bubka played his first pro event at the Ukraine satellite circuit this past month. He received wild cards in the first two weeks and upset the #6 seed, Alexei Ageev in his first match and finished with a 4-4 record. He receives 3 points and debuts in the rankings this week at #1133. Not bad for a 16-year-old's first pro action.
