Paul Jubb went from playing last on the South Carolina men's tennis team lineup to claiming the title of NCAA champion. Just a few months into turning pro, Ellesse has taken the young star off the market. 

"We are delighted to announce the signing to the brand of British rising star, and reigning NCAA Singles Champion, Paul Jubb," Ellesse wrote on Instagram.

Last year, Jubb defeated Nuno Borges in straight sets to claim the NCAA championships which earned him a wild card into Wimbledon. Although he fell in the first round, the week prior he posted a three-set win over world No. 14 Andrey Rublev. 

This year, the Brit was heading into his senior year before COVID-19 struck, and he opted to not stay for a fifth year, signing with Andy Murray's agency 77 Sports Management. 

“I’m proud to begin my life as a professional tennis player with Ellesse," Jubb said. "As a brand, they have a rich history in tennis and I am really excited to be representing them both on and the off the court in the coming years.”

Ellesse's color-blocking and chevron patterning apparel does have a rich history in tennis. At just 17, Boris Becker wore the brand on his way to winning Wimbledon. Tommy Haas, Chris Evert, Pat Cash, Anna Kournikova and Johanna Konta have all been brand ambassadors for the stylish brand.

Although Jubb is dropping his Yonex attire, the 20-year-old will still be cracking balls with the Japanese racquet company. 

Cheers to new beginnings...
