Magic man Dustin Brown happy despite Wimbledon exit

EXIT: Dustin Brown

GERMAN DUSTIN Brown is of the opinion that he may have been too passive in his 6‑4, 7‑6, 4‑6, 6‑3 third round Wimbledon defeat to Viktor Troicki on Satutrday (July 4).

Brown, born in Germany but currently residing in Jamaica, caused the shock of Wimbledon’s first week when he knocked out legend Rafael Nadal. However, he was unable to reach such heights against the big-hitting Serbian.

Brown said: “I think that all the matches are always different. It's a complete different game against Viktor. First of all, he served really well, he put a lot of returns in, especially in the important parts of the match.

“In the beginning I had some chances on his serve. Maybe if I break there, maybe I was a little bit too passive, been a little bit more aggressive, would have broken, would have been a different match. But it wasn't.

“He played great. With his game, the way he was serving, especially in the tiebreak, I mean, I can do what I want, this guy had four aces and one service winner in the tiebreak, I'm most likely not going to win the tiebreak."

Of his memorable Wimbledon experience, Brown said: “I'm happy with my tournament. When I came to qualifiers, if someone would have said sign here for beating Rafa, making second round and qualifying, I would have signed that paper."
