Melbourne VIC, Australia, 20 August 2018 |

After years of injury struggles, Jason Kubler has been rewarded for his persistence, debuting in the ATP top 100 this week.

The Queeslander reached the final at the Vancouver Challenger and as a result rose 10 places to world No.99.

Kubler, who underwent multiple knee surgeries and competed almost exclusively on clay for several years, now plays a full schedule across all surfaces.
