Australian tennis’ new love affair revealed Stars Jason Kubler and Maddison Inglis are a couple as they prepare to cheer for each other at the Australian Open
- Stars weren’t very keen on publicizing their romance at the United Cup
- Kubler provided a highlight for the Australians with a big comeback win over Dan Evans
- He’s ready for action at the Australian Open, Inglis has to get through her qualifiers
Australia didn’t exactly set the world on fire at the United Cup, but team-mates Jason Kubler and Maddison Inglis gave fans something to cheer about with the news that they are the latest stars from Down Under to find romance on the tour.
Inglis was seen cheering for her partner as he came from behind to beat Dan Evans in straight sets in the Aussies’ 3-2 loss to Britain last Friday and she will do the same if he starts from the January 16 tackles the Open.
The pair have kept a low profile about their relationship and have refused to post photos of each other on their social media accounts – but rumors that the two are romantically linked have been floating around for months.

While Kubler’s sensational 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) win against the coveted number 27 in the world was the highlight of Australia’s opening game in the United Cup, Inglis had a much harder time.
She, Alex de Minaur and Zoe Hives were all outplayed after a disruptive introduction to the tournament at Sydney’s Ken Rosewall Arena.
De Minaur was promoted to the men’s top match on Thursday after Nick Kyrgios retired with an ankle injury and Inglis was rushed just hours before Friday’s game when Ajla Tomljanovic went down with a knee complaint.

Replacing world no. 33 was a difficult task for no. 180 Inglis, who had not expected to take part in the tournament at all and was bedridden with a gastrointestinal problem as recently as last Wednesday.
Inglis had to defeat world no : 4.
She will struggle through qualification to secure a spot at the Australian Open while Kubler will look to improve on first-round exits he suffered in men’s singles in 2018 and 2019.
Kubler (pictured celebrating with Australia’s United Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt) has had a stellar 2022 and will be looking to maintain his fine form at the Grand Slam in Melbourne
He had a great 2022 campaign, winning the round of 16 at Wimbledon and recording his best win to date when he defeated world No. 9 Felix Auger-Aliassime at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in July.
Kubler’s rise comes despite a shocking injury battle early in his career that saw him have six surgeries on his injured knee aged just 24.
At one point he was down to his last $75 despite being ranked junior world No. 1 and was only able to play on clay courts from 2012 to 2015 lest he injure his knee further.
