SUCCESS for Jason Kubler this year has meant buying a better cut of steak or having the beautiful financial freedom to fill up his mother’s car.

The gutsy Kubler burst into the world’s top 100 in August with a season in which he qualified for Wimbledon and beat world No.19 Roberto Bautista Agut at the US Open.

The Brisbane 25-year-old has earned $380,487 in prizemoney this year, more than half of his career earnings of $611,033 in eight years as a professional player marred by six knee surgeries.

In mid-2017, Kubler, who lives at Mango Hill with his mother Lyn and his two siblings, roused himself from a period of indecision when he had less than $1 in his bank account.

All season, the hardworking baseliner scrapped together just $27,977 in official prizemoney and had to quit a European tour because he had no more money.
