Hull’s Paul Jubb is tennis’s new star.
The 19 year old, who grew up in a council house in Hull, will play in the men’s singles at Wimbledon for the first time after receiving a wildcard entry.
Paul trained at Pelican Park in east Hull and attended Malet Lambert Secondary School before being selected for a prestigious scholarship at the University of South Carolina.
Whilst studying Retail Management, Jubb became the first Briton ever to win the NCAA national singles championship in Orlando, where previous winners include Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe.
It has led to his wildcard entry to the oldest tennis tournament in the world – and a potential rise to stardom.
And Paul is hoping he could surprise a few of the seeds at the grass court tournament.
He told The Sun: “I feel good on grass. I’ve been able to adapt to it pretty well. It’s a surface on which I can do well.”
Paul, will find out his round one opponent on Friday 28 June at 10am. Round one ties are due to be played on Monday 1 July.
