At 27 years of age, some might consider John Peers to be a late bloomer on the ATP doubles circuit, however it has been a bloom that’s been more than worth the wait.

Since focussing his talents solely on doubles at the start of 2013, Peers has more than just taken it up to the best in the world. He’s beaten them.

2015 was his standout year where the Victorian made back-to-back Grand Slam finals at Wimbledon and the US Open, and reached a career high ranking of #7 in the world.

This ranking has made Peers the only Australian male inside the world’s top 10 in singles or doubles, a place which he has held since.

Born and raised in Melbourne, Peers was introduced to tennis as a child with his mother and uncle both professional players.

At the age of 18, Peers made the decision to develop his game via the US College system where he attended Middle Tennessee and Baylor University.

After a successful College career, Peers turned Pro in 2011 and spent three years plying his trade on the ITF and Challenger circuit, competing in singles and doubles.

However it was a decision to focus solely on doubles at the start of 2013 that proved a masterstroke.

Partnering with Britain’s Jamie Murray, the pair had immediate success and developed in to one of the world’s most feared combinations.

They won six ATP titles together and in 2015 made the final of Wimbledon and the US Open before qualifying for the illustrious ATP World Tour Finals in London.

While these have been huge career highlights, perhaps Peers’ greatest achievement came early in 2016 where he made his Davis Cup debut against the USA.

Partnering with one of Australia’s best of all time in Lleyton Hewitt, Peers was the dominant force against perhaps the worlds best-ever pairs in the Bryan brothers.

2016 also brought about a change in partner, with Finland’s Henri Kontinen replacing Murray as Peers’ partner. The pair had immediate success with a win at the Brisbane International in their first tournament together.

Peers has sets his sights on a maiden grand slam in 2016 as well as the Rio Olympics.
