A new tennis couple Jason Kubler and Maddison Inglis has made their way to the community, eliciting a plethora of interesting reactions online. This new couple is all set for the Australian Open starting 16th January. Australia has produced many tennis couples before.
The country has a history starting from Lleyton Hewitt dating Kim Clijsters, Nick Kyrgios dating Ajla Tomljanovic for a while, and Daria Gavrilova married Luke Saville. However, neither of them was interested in speaking out about it. They are keen on keeping their relationship private and hence not posting anything about each other on social media.
Maddison cheered for Jason in the ongoing United Cup. The Australian had a remarkable comeback from 0-5 to win the set against the Brit, Daniel Evans to win the match. She encouraged Jason throughout the match.
Speaking in the post-match presentation, Kubler said, “It’s tough to give up when you’ve got Rusty (Hewitt) on the bench and Demon (de Minaur),” Kubler said in his on-court interview.”
He also added, “They have that never-say-die attitude and I just hope that I can replicate that in my matches. Any time I’m down, especially in front of these guys, I’ve just got to give it my all. Luckily tonight I was able to turn it around. It’s not very often you turn (around) a 5-0 down, so I’ll definitely remember this one.”
