Fran Jones


I was looking to copy Grachka's post in the Wimbledon Wild Cards thread on Fran Jones to her individual thread when I realised she hasn't had a thread opened yet. It's a really great thread, and since I hope there will be plenty more news on Fran's progress in the coming weeks/ years, I'm opening one for her now. It's a wonderful article on what she has to overcome with her EEC and her determination to continue to do so.

A very nice segment on Sky News this morning about Fran Jones's rise against the odds.

A write up and highlights here: news.sky.com/story/wimbledon-wildcard-with-genetic-disorder-has-no-limits-11747189

Having followed Fran on this forum & seen her play on a couple of occasions it is a fantastic tribute to her that I consider her just an extremely talented young tennis player with a decent chance of breaking into the top 100.

In terms of attitude she reminds me a bit of Harriet if not more focused with a weight of shot up there with the likes of Freya, a promising combination. The fact that as a junior she has not really been able to lift weights is pretty exciting in terms of further development. I think continuing to follow Frans development over the next 3-4 years assuming she stays fit will be an amazing ride & great privilege.
