At the Australian Open, Jennifer Brady Heads to Her Second-Ever Grand Slam Singles Semifinal

Fitness

Professional tennis player Jennifer Brady is off to the semifinals at the 2021 Australian Open. It’s only the second time she has made it this far at a Grand Slam singles tournament — she competed in the quarterfinal, then semifinal, match during the 2020 US Open.

The 25-year-old rose to prominence in 2017 when she reached the fourth round at both the Australian Open and US Open. After that 2017 Australian Open run, Brady said her world changed. “I couldn’t really believe it, to be honest with you,” she recalled on the Tennis Channel podcast. “A part of me . . . I don’t think I was really ready for that type of success.” Lower-level events, she said, are “a grind,” and once you get through to the higher ranks at Grand Slams, you realize “this is where I want to be, and this is where I want to stay.”
