Young At Heart

Close friend and ex Top 100 player, Donald Young has played an instrumental role in the success of Eubanks. Eubanks gained a taste of the ATP tour as a hitting partner. This valuable experience across the world helped the American to make a decision on pursuing a career in the sport. 

6 years later, the decision to turn professional has paid some dividends!

Come Fly With Me

Eubanks was jetting across the world from Paris to Morocco as a junior. Donald Young saw great potential in the very early stages of Eubanks’ career. Missing out on junior-level tournaments which other players would be performing in, he felt that this experience could be unmatched. 

Around Eubanks’ 18th birthday, Young and Eubanks partnered up to enter the Atlanta Open doubles in 2015. Getting all the way to the semi-finals, followed up with Eubanks joining the American college circuit. 

Giant Killer

With the odds stacked up against him, he managed to defeat British Number 1 - Cameron Norrie. Eubanks will always have a huge serve to back himself out of trouble however, his fluent one-handed backhand has been in exceptional touch during the grass season. 

His convincing progression to the third round saw him as the market favourite to continue onto the fourth round. He will be hoping to go one better and upset the fifth seed, Stefanos Tsitsipas. A man who has also upset the home crowd, defeating two-time Wimbledon champion, Andy Murray.

What to expect next?

Eubanks will be looking to bank on his serve and attempting to challenge the Tsitsipas service games to get the break. Breaks of serve will be huge in this match as they will be few and far between. Both men were broken just once each in their third round matches. 

It is a certainty that this match will be played out on a show court. Plenty of volleying will be seen from the American to cut the time away from the Greek who loves to move around his forehand to unleash huge winners.
