Jack Brasington (born September 9, 1976) is a former professional tennis player from the United States.[1]

Career[edit]

Before he turned professional, Brasington played collegiate tennis for the University of Texas at Austin. He attained a best ranking of seventh in the nation and holds the university record for most wins, 121.[2]

Brasington made the second round of the 2001 US Open, in what was his maiden Grand Slam appearance.[3] His opening round win, over Gianluca Pozzi, was decided in a fifth set tiebreak, during which the American saved a match point.[4] He won the tiebreak 8-6, to set up a second round meeting with Andy Roddick, who would beat Brasington in four sets.[3]

In 2002 he managed to get past qualifying and play in the main draw of all four Grand Slam tournaments.[3] He reached the second round of the French Open that year, with a win over Federico Luzzi.[3] At the 2002 US Open, in addition to the singles, he played in the doubles for the only time, with Vince Spadea.[3] His only other Grand Slam appearance was in the 2003 Australian Open, where he lost his first round match to Sjeng Schalken.[3]
