Brown won the British Under-21 championship in 1980 and the national senior singles championship three years later in 1983. After playing on the ATP tour in the early 1980s, he left the tour in 1984 to devote his time to coaching young British players, including Tim Henman, before returning to competitive play five years later.
Brown caused a sensation at Wimbledon in 1991. Ranked No. 591 in the world at the time, he faced the 10th seed and previous year's semi-finalist Goran Ivanišević in the second round and beat him in four sets, to the delight of the British crowd. He eventually lost in the third round to France's Thierry Champion.
Brown's career-high rankings were World No. 145 in singles and No. 42 in doubles.
Since permanently retiring from competitive tennis, Brown has served as coach of Britain's Fed Cup team.
