He was highly praised for his style and quality. Andy Murray, former world No. 1 and owner of three Grand Slam titles, spoke wonders of the young Jenson Brooksby, 20, who has just been a finalist in Newport and now reached his second ATP semi-final, both in less a month, in this case in Washington.
In your account Twitter, the 34-year-old Scot, winner of two gold medals in singles at the Olympic Games, a historical record, raved about this American who shoots drops with a two-handed backhand, is aggressive and is being discovered suddenly by a lot of people on the professional circuit.
At the age of 20, he has just reached the final on the Newport turf and now, as a special guest, he is a semifinalist in Washington, virtually getting into the Top 100 of the ATP world rankings for the first time.
“Brooksby is the kind of player I like to see. He has a wide variety of shots, high quality tennis and is very good on defense,” wrote the Briton.
In addition, he quoted: “His slice and his backhand volley are identical to Florian Mayer’s.” Thus, Murray compared Brooksby to the versatility of the German.
Undoubtedly, this young man will be increasingly named by everyone. And boy is he happy with the words he received from none other than a former leader like Murray, so complete and intelligent.
