Athlete Biography

22-year-old Jordan Thompson will make his Olympic debut in Rio in the men’s singles after a strong 12 months on the court.

Thompson advanced to the second round of the French Open in May before losing 12-10 in the fifth set to Croatian stalwart Ivo Karlovic, which helped lift his world ranking to a career-high of 88. He is currently ranked 90 in the world.

The right-hander with a double-hand backhand took up the sport at age four because of his parents, Stephen and Karen, both played.

Thompson, who was born and lives in Sydney, turned pro in 2013 and since then has won the Australian Open 2014 Wildcard Play-off, defeating Ben Mitchell in the final 6-3 6-2 4-6 4-6 6-1. He went on to repeat that feat last year with a gruelling five-set defeat of John-Patrick Smith.

Thompson believes he would have had a career in rugby league had he not played tennis.
