Two years ago at the US Open, Jared faced Gael Monfils as a wildcard entry. Though he subsequently lost that match, he showed enough promise to warrant some of the best tennis coaches in USA to take a closer look at him.
And now barely two years after turning pro, he is turning heads along the way as he stretched his winning streak to five games to enter the third round of the US Open.
Now if only he could meet Monfils again !
