Unless you're a die-hard tennis fan you've probably never heard of Tommy Paul. That is unless you're from the Voorhees area.

Well, a couple of weeks ago Tommy made his mark by winning the Queen's Cup title in London. That victory makes him the number one ranked U.S. men's singles tennis player.

Tommy reached the third round at Wimbledon last year has made it to the quarterfinals already this year.

It never ceases to amaze how many great performers and athletes come from New Jersey. Tommy grew up in Vorhees, Camden County. If you needed an excuse to watch the Wimbledon tennis tournament this week, this seems like a pretty good reason.
