World No.1 Matt Ebden is among four Australian players scheduled to compete on day nine at Wimbledon 2024.

Ebden and Ellen Perez resume their first-round match in the mixed doubles competition in a precarious position. The top-seeded Aussies were facing a set point against Argentina’s Andres Molteni and American Asia Muhammad when rain forced them off court yesterday.

Hayden Jones continues his title quest in the boys’ singles competition, taking on world No.27 Mees Rottgering of the Netherlands in the second round.

The 17-year-old from the Gold Coast is looking to build on his impressive form, which has helped him win 30 of his 36 matches on the ITF junior tour this season.

“I feel super confident to be honest, especially on a quick court. I think I’ve only lost four matches this year on a hard or grass court,” Jones said after scoring his first Wimbledon victory earlier this week.

“I’ve had a lot of wins, so this has been a great year for me so far and I feel super confident about where it is heading.”

One of Jones’ losses was to his next opponent, the 17-year-old Rottgering, who edged out a three-set victory at an ITF J300 tournament in Australia during January.

His younger sister, 16-year-old Emerson Jones, is also through to the second round in the girls’ singles competition.
