Jenson Brooksby, 21, thinks "the sky is the limit" for him when he completely locked in and focused on improving. Brooksby burst onto the scene last summer and now he has established himself as a regular participant of the main level events.
Brooksby, the 37th-ranked player in the world, has made three ATP finals over the last 12 months but he still without an ATP title. Last week, Brooksby reached the Atlanta Open final before suffering a 6-3 6-3 loss to Alex de Minaur.
Brooksby maybe didn't win his first title in Atlanta but he is keeping a positive spirit. “I really think when I’m training well and I’m really, really focused in and zoned in on my game, that the sky’s the limit for me.
You know, I think I can achieve anything. I’m just always someone who wants to have my game feeling as good as possible, especially in the later matches in the tournament. I definitely think I played a strong first set for sure, and early in the second set.
But, you know, there’s always going to be a few things to work on," Brooksby said, per Tennis365.
Brooksby explains his mentality
Brooksby has built a solid reputation for himself on the ATP Tour as his opponents know the 21-year-old is not someone who simply gifts a win.
“I think [my mentality] is similar now to last year. For instance, in the European tournaments it was a little, not how it’s supposed to be. But I think that’s in the past now. We know how to manage that better.
But just, it’s always [about] staying in the present for me. Right now. I feel like I’m in a good headspace and a good mentality like last year and just hope to keep bringing that every day," Brooksby explained. After a strong run in Atlanta, Brooksby suffered a surprise first round defeat to Yoshihito Nishioka in Washington.
