Rising Australian tennis player James Duckworth remains a work in progress. It took him 25 attempts to break into the third round of a Grand Slam — Wimbledon 2021 — for the first time. He, however, is enjoying a career-high of World No.46 currently which he achieved in January 2022. He broke into the top 300 senior rankings for the first time in 2011 with his ATP and Grand Slam debut coming in 2012. The Australian won his first Challenger title at the Lexington Challenger in 2014 which was followed by Charlottesville Challenger in the same year, helping him to break into the top 100 rankings for the first-time in 2015.
It came after his commendable run in junior championships where he won three titles and reached the 2010 Roland Garros Junior Championships semi-finals. He largely depends on his tricky serves in his style of play and believes in hitting the groundstrokes with depth to challenge his opponent and keep them pinned to the baseline which limits them to lack of movement.
