Paul Jubb's Parents? Dad Shaun And Mother Jacinta's Death

Paul Jubb's past is filled with both tragic experiences and great achievements. The wildcard for Wimbledon who is making his path is actually an orphan and has been raised by his grandmother.

Called "Jubby" in his childhood, he was raised on the Hull estate by his grandmother Valerie after his parents Shaun and Jacinta passed away.

Paul's father, Shaun was a veteran soldier and he committed suicide when Paul was only four years old. Likewise, his mother, Jacinda also passed away young after the death of her husband, experiencing post-traumatic stress.

Ever since then, Paul has been giving and growing with his beloved grandmother. After a year his parents passed away, Paul picked up a racket and as everyone who knew him saw it already, the guy was a sheer talent on the tennis court.

He was first seen playing tennis at Pelican Park, a spot near his Hull home when he was merely four years old, and at that time, the tennis instructor Jonny Carmichael noticed him and stayed as a mentor for him.

After winning the national championship for juniors, Paul Jubb received a scholarship from the University of South Carolina. Afterward, he grabbed the 2019 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championship and received a wildcard to Wimbledon for that year.

As Wimbledon was always a dream for him, he currently played for the 2022 Wimbledon as well, sadly losing five sets to Nick Kyrgios in the first round.

Jubb often wished his grandmother Valerie watching him playing big matches as she always took care of him, and worked hard in raising him. Valerie had given the love and support of both mother and father to Paul Jubb and he has nothing but big respect for his 80-year-old grandmother.

Despite having a tattoo of his parents' name on his ribcage, it doesn't make much sense to him as he knows that they are no longer with him and it has always been his grandmother throughout his life.

About the competition in Wimbledon, Paul stated that he could see how proud Valerie would be and how happy to know she watched him playing.
