WACO, Texas – Baylor men’s tennis redshirt freshman Jenson Brooksby announced Tuesday that he will forgo his remaining collegiate eligibility and compete professionally on the ATP Tour.
Brooksby is currently ranked the No. 307 singles player on the ATP Tour. He holds a 1-2 career record in tour-level events, garnering his first main draw victory at the 2019 U.S. Open over No. 98 Tomas Berdych. Prior to the U.S. Open, he had won three futures titles at the Decatur, Champaign and Bakersfield events.
“We are excited for Jenson as he takes the next step in his pursuit of reaching his goals on and off the court,” said interim head coach Michael Woodson. “He is a man of great work ethic and high character. Though the circumstances did not allow him to accomplish many of the goals he set for himself here at Baylor, we are confident this is the right time for him to focus on the ATP Tour. We look forward to cheering on yet another Bear in the pros.”
A native of Sacramento, Calif., Brooksby came to Baylor as a spring enrollee ahead of the 2020 season, however he did not compete in any matches due to injury. Brooksby entered as the No. 1 overall recruit according to and carried a No. 268 ATP ranking, two slots below his career-best of No. 266.
“Baylor means a lot to me,” said Brooskby. “The facilities, the staff, the resources, and most importantly the kindness of the people of Waco is second to none. I will cherish these relationships for the rest of my life. You will see me proudly wearing my Baylor gear at my future tournaments around the world.”
Brooksby joins Juan Benitez, Julian Lenz, Roberto Maytin, John Peers, Roy Smith and Max Tchoutakian as notable active alumni competing professionally.
