WATCH: Draper talks about his growth and goals in a 2019 interview with Tennis Channel.


If you aren’t familiar with Jack Draper, the 19-year-old Brit in the quarterfinals of the Queen’s Club Championship, you will be soon. Draper, a former Junior Wimbledon finalist, owns a lethal serve as well as some seriously powerful groundstrokes. Barring injury, the 6’4” lefty will be a force on the ATP Tour soon enough.

But did you know that he’s a professional tennis player and model? Seriously. Draper is represented by IMG in more ways than one, and even has his own page on the IMG Models website.

It’s a smart move for the fortunate looking teenager, as his impending success on the ATP Tour should also open doors to more modeling gigs.

Draper scored the victory of his young career on Monday when he upset Jannik Sinner in two tiebreak sets. Most young players would be due for a letdown after such a big win, but Draper followed it up with a straight-set victory over Alexander Bublik on Wednesday.

Draper, who’s all-time favorite player is Andy Murray, “and not because he’s British,” grew up attending the Queen’s Club Championship, making it a fitting venue for his first ATP quarterfinal. Draper will face off against fellow Brit Cameron Norrie in Friday’s quarterfinal.
