CAREER

About Joss

Born in Nottinghamshire on 20 February 1991, Jocelyn started playing tennis at the age of 7 at local tennis club Woodthorpe with parents Ruth and Robert, and quickly received coaching from John Black. She had a successful junior career reaching the finals of the prestigious Orange Bowl Championships in Florida at 12 years old and later winning the under 18 UK national championships singles and doubles. Jocelyn represented Great Britain as a junior from the age of 12, and reached a career high junior ITF ranking of world no. 167 in April 2007.

In 2008, Jocelyn turned her focus to the senior circuit and quickly made her mark in September by winning the $25,000 doubles event in Kawana Walters, Australia with Emelyn Starr. Following this, Jocelyn picked up a further 6 doubles titles and reached two finals of $10,000 singles events, winning her first professional singles tournament in Mitilini, Greece. One of Jocelyn’s biggest achievements came in 2010 when partnering Colin Fleming, she won the gold medal in the 2010 Commonwealth games in Delhi for Scotland. This success saw Jocelyn receive her first Fed Cup call up in 2011, where she partnered Heather Watson to defeat Switzerland followed by Denmark’s pairing of Mai Grage and former world no.1 Caroline Wozniaki.



Unfortunately, Jocelyn suffered a serious foot injury requiring surgery, which left her unable to compete until 2013 when she returned to the game focusing on doubles. Since 2013, Jocelyn has partnered fellow Brit Anna Smith winning 12 ITF doubles titles and reaching 2 WTA finals in Bastaad and Nottingham. They have successfully climbed the WTA rankings, reaching a career high of 68 in February 2016. Since returning from injury, Jocelyn has represented Great Britain in the Fed Cup from 2014-2016 and competed in every grand slam. Jocelyn is currently ranked 79 in WTA doubles rankings and is looking to reach the top 50.
