Brydan Klein is an Australian-born British professional tennis player. He prefers to play on a fast surface, such as grass or hard. Klein has yet to become an active competitor on the main ATP Tour. However, he did receive a wildcard from Tennis Australia for the 2008 Australian Open, but lost to Paul Capdeville in the 1st round of the Grand Slam event. He is a winner of the junior Australian Open.
Klein received wildcard entries into both the Brisbane International and the 2009 Australian Open. A first round loser in Brisbane Brydan acquired his first Grand Slam victory at the Australian Open against Björn Phau 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, before falling to Stanislas Wawrinka in straight sets in round 2. Following his Australian Open efforts, Klein won the first challenger event of his career in Burnie.
2010 started slowly for Klein being unable to defend points gained from 2009 when he won an Australian Open first round as well as a challenger event. With a ranking outside the top 400 Klein returned to the ITF futures circuit and was able to win three titles in a matter of one month.
Kelin started playing under a British licence in 2013.
Klein has grown up in a tennis household; his father, Verne, was a coach and high school teacher and his older brother also played tennis competitively for a short time.
In July 2009 Klein accepted a six-month ban from the ATP after racially abusing an opponent at a tournament in England. He has also agreed to undergo a racial sensitivity course. He used the racist term "kaffir" to describe South African player Raven Klaasen at the grasscourt event at Eastbourne. He issued a public apology for his actions, and was fined $14,000 by the ATP, and later fined a further $10,000 after an investigation into the incident.
