Jennifer Brady, a finalist at the 2021 Australian Open, will play for the first time in 21 months.
Jennifer Brady, who placed third in the 2021 Australian Open, is getting close to making a comeback in tennis as she has qualified for the French Open using a protected ranking. Brady, 28, hasn’t played since losing to Cincinnati in the second round in August of 2021.
Brady made the decision to take some time off to address his knee problem after battling it for a while. Brady is set to play once more almost two years later. Brady, a previous No. 13 in the world, is not currently ranked.
But Brady was in the top 15 in the world when she last competed. Brady will therefore be qualified to participate in 12 tournaments with a protected ranking.
Brady recently made a hint that the French Open was her ultimate goal.
Brady disclosed last month that she was honing her clay skills in preparation for the French Open.
“The French Open is my target; that’s what I’m aiming for. You may have noticed that I am out here grinding on the red clay. Brady recently remarked, “Well, I wouldn’t say grinding here, but you know, getting the body acclimated to sliding, getting used to, you know, a little bit of movement, all that sort of things.
Brady made an effort to return to tennis last year. Brady thought she wasn’t prepared, though. But everything seems different this time. “Not today, but do you know what? We will inform you that we are progressing better than we were the previous year.
Undoubtedly on the right track, working things out, and a lot of tiny things happening, so it’s not an easy case. So, we are definitely in a better position than we were last year, Brady said. Brady reached her first Grand Slam final at the Australian Open in January 2021.
Brady started having injury issues, which she neither needed nor wanted, so she was unable to continue on her upward trajectory.
