Hey all,




Jerzy Janowicz in a couple of hours will be playing in his first ever grand slam semi-final & that too at Wimbledon in just his 2nd appearance at the championships against Andy Murray. If you are a regular reader of this forum, I am sure, you would have read a lot about him in all our articles since his heroics at Paris Masters, Bercy in November, last year.








Jerzy Janowicz (in picture) is a true story of Rags from Riches in the Tennis world





From Rags to Riches




With almost no support from Polish Tennis association, Jerzy Janowicz's parents had to sell their shops to fund his Tennis career.

Jerzy Janowicz had to sleep in his car during tournaments.

Even during his heroics at Paris Masters, Bercy, he had stayed in an economy budget hotel as he had no sponsors till then.











But, by reaching Wimbledon semi-finals, Jerzy Janowicz is assured to receive a prize money of 608,000 USD.





Jerzy Janowicz the bad boy




Who can ever forget his epic meltdown at Australian Open? His outburst after the chair umpire didn't overrule a linesman calls where in he shouted "How Many Times" became an Internet viral sensation & even has many different versions of remixes.











Emotional Jerzy Janowicz




Jerzy can be angry, can get wild at times, can be really funny, but at the same time, he is really-2 emotional as well. Janowicz who resides in Lodz collapsed in tears after beating compatriot Lukasz Kubot to reach his first Grand Slam semi-final.









Jerzy Janowicz from his childhood days idolized Pete Sampras and by reaching the Wimbledon semi-final has become the first Polish man to reach the semi-finals of a major and Jerzy Janowicz recently said in an interview, he wanted to be a Computer Hacker :).







Ranking Update




By reaching the semi-finals of Wimbledon, 2013, Jerzy Janowicz has assured himself of 17th Ranking, an upset win over Andy Murray will take him to 11th and a win in the Finals will take him to No. 9th in the ATP Rankings post Wimbledon.

I'm sure that one day Jerzy Janowicz will be in top 10, even in the Top 3

Thanks Vibhu and Karolina for posting that. :)

When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a Roger Federer to smile.

Thanks Kishore :)
