Who Is Tennis Sensation Jack Pennington-Jones?

Tennis sensation Jack Pinnington-Jones has taken this year's Wimbledon's Junior Championships by storm - and it comes as no surprise, too, especially given his connections in the sport.

Intriguingly, Pinnington-Jones became the latest young tennis player to sign with two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray. How's that for a contact and mentor?

The 18-year-old is currently the British number one in the junior ITF rankings and is tipped for a bright future in the game - with Murray a firm admirer, tipping him for big things.

He joins fellow rising tennis players in Paul Jubb, Harriet Dart, Katie Swan and Aidan McHugh at the agency.

The youngster, currently ranked eighth in the world at a junior level, is now through to the quarter-final of the junior tournament after his second victory of the week in the heart of south west London.

He next faces Kalin Ivanovski, the world number 62 from North Macedonia.
