When Jenson Brooksby, 21, really locked in and concentrated on getting better, he believes “the sky is the limit” for him. Brooksby made his debut last summer, and since then, he has established himself as a consistent competitor in the top-level competition.
The 37th-ranked player in the world, Brooksby, has reached three ATP finals in the past 12 months, but he has yet to win an ATP championship. Last week, Brooksby competed in the Atlanta Open final but lost to Alex de Minaur 6-3, 6-3.
Brooksby may not have won his first championship in Atlanta, but he is still in a good mood. “I genuinely believe that the sky is the limit for me when I’m working hard in the gym and when I’m totally focused and in the zone during play.
You know, I believe I am capable of anything. I really always want to feel as well as I can in my game, especially in the later stages of the tournament. I am positive that I played well in the first set and in the early going of the second.
However, there will always be a few things to improve, “As reported by Tennis365, Brooksby.
Brooksby describes his mindset.
As a result of the good reputation Brooksby has established for himself on the ATP Tour, opponents are aware that the 21-year-old does not give wins away easily.
“I feel like [my thinking] hasn’t changed from last year. For instance, it was a touch off during the European tournaments compared to how it should have been. But I believe that is now in the past. We are more equipped to handle that now.
However, for me, it’s always about remaining in the present. right now. I feel like I’m in a good headspace and a good mentality like last year and just hope to keep bringing that every day,” Brooksby explained. After a strong run in Atlanta, Brooksby suffered a surprise first round defeat to Yoshihito Nishioka in Washington.
