Paul Jubb puts faith in Andy Murray as he plots unconventional path

With some help from a conversation with Andy Murray, the British youngster Paul Jubb has decided to be represented by Murray’s 77 sports marketing agency as he forgoes his final year at the University of South Carolina in favour of turning professional. The main things were I just spoke to the people closest to me about the decision and what move I’m going to make.” Jubb, ranked 519 in the world, has also been included in the Lawn Tennis Association’s Pro Scholarship Programme that provides up to £80,000 per year to British players considered to have top-100 potential. And then once we get to that point, going fullsteam ahead.” At Wimbledon Jubb and his coach spoke with numerous agencies but Murray’s help was difficult to refuse. “I guess that is definitely now an option that I can use him more as a source and potentially have more court-time with him and be able to talk to him more and use his brain to try to help me on court.” Jubb is already a distinct presence in British tennis. His mother, who like his father died when he was young, was born in Kenya and he grew up with his grandmother on a housing estate.
