About

Jack Draper is one of the brightest prospects in British tennis, and turned heads on the ATP Tour for the first time with impressive victories over Jannik Sinner and Alexander Bublik at the 2021 cinch Championships at The Queen’s Club. His straight sets win over highly-rated Sinner was his first on the ATP Tour.

Draper started playing at his local Sutton Tennis & Squash club as a child, competing with his brother under the tutelage of mother and tennis coach Nicky. He attributes much of his competitive nature and attacking game-style to these early days of trying to get the better of his brother. Draper’s father, Roger, was LTA Chief Executive from 2006 to 2013.

A big hitting left-hander, Draper made enjoyed success at junior level, winning three ITF Futures titles in 2018 before reaching the final of the Wimbledon Boys’ competition later that year – a run which included a 4 hour 23 minute 7-6(5) 6-7(8) 19-17 semi-final win over Colombia’s Nicolas Mejia. He eventually lost to Taiwanese top seed Tseng Chun-hsin in three sets 6-1 6-7(7) 6-4 on Court 1. Draper achieved a career high ITF Junior Ranking of No.7 at the end of 2018. He has won four ITF $25k titles since turning pro, and hopes to build on recent success on the ATP Tour.

In 2022 he became the youngest Brit to win three ATP Challenger titles in just two months and rose into the top 150 for the first time in his career.

He is coached LTA National Coach James Trotman at the National Tennis Centre as part of his support through the LTA’s Pro Scholarship Programme, which provides medical, coaching and financial support to Britain’s highest potential young players.
