Cleveland, OH (July 17th, 2019) – Sports management company Topnotch Management announced today the signing of rising tennis player Jeffrey John Wolf to a global representation agreement, including a multi-year partnership with Head. The 20-year-old Cincinnati native will be co-managed by Topnotch Management president, Sam Duvall and client manager James Beres.
“It’s not every day you’re able to sign an exciting talent like J.J.,” said Duvall. “JJ was the #1 ranked player in college tennis most of the year representing Ohio State. We truly believe he can become one of the top tennis players in the world.”
Wolf had an outstanding career at Ohio State University before turning pro this summer. En-route to earning All-American and All-Big Ten honors, he also claimed the All-American Collegiate Individual title this past season which was a first for a player from the Ohio State mens team.
JJ is the highest ranked 20-year American player and has a professional ATP ranking of #270 while only having had the opportunity to play a very limited pro schedule.
Wolf already captured his first ATP Challenger title at the Columbus event in January of 2019 and has won multiple matches at ATP 1000 series events.
"I’m thrilled to be joining the Topnotch Management team. Their track record with top players is exceptional. Being able to have their support and expertise as I transition from college to my pro career will be instrumental to my success as I compete on the ATP Tour. I already know that I have the ability to compete with the top players in the game and I am excited for what is to come,” said Wolf.
Wolf will plan on playing a busy schedule of hardcourt events around North America this summer and fall.
