Paul Jubb: “Novak Djokovic is just levels above everyone right now”

Paul Jubb’s 2019 season has confirmed him to be one of the main British rising star. After winning the NCAA Division I Men’s Singles Championships in May, Jubb beat Denis Istomin and Andrey Rublev to pass the qualifying rounds of the Eastbourne ATP 250.

He successively received a wild card to make his Grand Slam main draw debut at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships, where he bowed out in four sets to then-World No. 69 Joao Sousa.

With two ITF singles titles under his belt, the Briton is ready to launch himself into full-time professional tennis now that his career as a Gamecock of the University of South Carolina has come to an end.

Jubb’s adventure will possibly be eventful given his promising results and the level of competition that will be waiting for him when tennis will resume.

Interviewed by Tennis Brain Work during the period of global isolation, Jubb talked about the players he looks up to and whom he tries to learn from to improve his game.

“The one player I would say I study and learn from the most is Novak Djokovic,” he said. “I like to style my game around his so I watch him a lot. But I also watch lots of other players and see what they do so well”.

In Jubb’s opinion, the Serb could arguably deserve the much-debated title of GOAT. “I think Djokovic will finish with the most [Grand Slam titles],” Jubb concluded. “With how dominant he has been it is hard to not say him. He is just levels above everyone right now”.

Seyi, son of a former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Thursday morning at about 1:53am flew out to London, United Kingdom, in a private jet with members of his family and a few others, SaharaReporters has exclusively learnt.

The emergency trip follows the growing resentment in Lagos against his father, who has seen some of his known investments in Lagos and Abuja targeted and burnt by angry Nigerians over his perceived involvement in the deployment of soldiers, who killed peaceful protesters in the Lekki Toll Gate area of Lagos on Tuesday night.

Over 10 peaceful protesters were killed by soldiers in Tuesday’s massacre while demanding an end to police brutality and state repression.

An overwhelming majority of Lagos residents have accused the All Progressives Congress’ National Leader of being behind the incident — a claim he has denied.

In retaliation for the killing of peaceful protesters, angry citizens on Wednesday morning burnt down Television Continental and The Nation Newspaper — both media establishments with headquarters in Lagos believed to be owned by Tinubu.

Earlier on Tuesday night, angry Nigerians had burnt the toll plaza of the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge, another money spinner said to be controlled by the former Lagos governor.
