Andy Murray has snapped up rising British tennis star Paul Jubb, adding the 20-year-old from Hull to his management agency.
Jubb rose to prominence in 2019, earning himself a wildcard at Wimbledon after winning the NCAA national singles championships for the University of South Carolina – following in the footsteps of the likes of John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors – and beating now world No. 14 Andrey Rublev in Eastborne.
The world No. 519 turned pro last month after leaving college and was selected for the Lawn Tennis Association’s Pro Schollarship Programme – which provides young British players support to the tune of £80,000-a-year – and now he has teamed up with Murray’s management company 77 Sport.
‘Paul won the prestigious men’s singles title during his time at American college, and we’re delighted he chose to sign with us as he starts on his journey as a professional tennis player,’ said three-time Grand Slam champion Murray. (Text and photo courtesyMetro)
