It's not bad winning the smaller events, but now Jenson Brooksby wants to take it to the next level.
The 20-year-old American scored the third tour win of this career—and his second this week—at the ATP Newport event, defeating Denis Kudla in the second round.
"I want to prove that I can do the same on the ATP events as I have in the Challenger events," Brooksby was quoted as telling press.
On the Challenger tour this season, he has been on a roll—winning an event in South Africa, reaching a final in Cleveland, then winning in Tallahassee and Orlando. He also won three qualifying contests at the French Open before falling in the first round to Aslan Karatsev.
Getting some ATP wins at Newport has been a welcome next step.
