Jordan Thompson is an Australian professional tennis player who was born on April 20, 1994, in Sydney, Australia. Growing up on the Australian East Coast, Thompson was an avid sports fan, engaging not only in tennis but rugby league, too.

He enjoyed relative success on the Junior Tour, the highlight being, without doubt, his appearance in the Australian Open Boys' doubles final with compatriot and fellow modern-day professional Nick Kyrgios. After turning pro in 2013, he spent his first years trying to get a firm grip of the jump in level.

The Australian didn’t know immediate luck, however, with the elusive ATP debut proving difficult to get for him. His debut at that level did come a couple of years down the line, in 2015, when he found himself in the first round of home Slam Australian Open.

Despite losing in the round, it was certainly a good experience for the Australian, and provided him with more chances to break through onto the main ATP Tour on a more permanent basis. By 2017, the man from Down Under was a much more established member of the Tour, regularly playing in ATP 250 and above tournaments.

2017 also happened to be the year in which he got his hands on ATP silverware for the first time, too, with Thompson winning the doubles title on home soil at the Brisbane International. While he found his feet on the singles tour during the following few years, he racked up some decent results.

He managed to reach his career-best appearance at any Grand Slam at the 2020 US Open when he advanced to the fourth round. The next years were some of his best ones, and he claimed his second doubles title in 2023 at the Houston Open.

In 2024, Thompson saw great success, winning another doubles title at the Dallas Open, as well as doing the singles and doubles double at the Los Cabos Open to claim what was his first ATP singles title and round off a stellar week.

2024 was also the year when he got to his best career-high ranking of world number 32. With recent success such as this, it is an exciting time to be a Jordan Thompson fan, as only time will tell how high he goes in the tennis world.
