As she’s getting ready to play the US Open for the first time since making the semifinals there in 2020, Jennifer Brady and her racquet sponsor Babolat organized an on-court event at Court16 FiDi in New York where the American WTA star hit with journalists and young tennis campers.
Playing with her Babolat Pure Aero, Brady put a select group of media members through drills, gave them tips for improving their game, and let them experience her big forehand. Following this, the 2021 Australian Open finalist hit with young tennis campers and held a question and answer session.
After major injury struggles that put her in “a very dark place,” the 28-year-old Brady finally played her first WTA event since 2021 Cincinnati at the 2023 Mubadala Citi DC Open. The American proceeded to play two more tournaments, securing notable victories over Anhelina Kalinina and Grand Slam champion Jelena Ostapenko.
Brady is returning to the US Open with a protected ranking of No.14. Her opponent in the first round will be a qualifier.
