Dustin Brown Tennis Player Interview
Dustin Brown Tennis Player Interview – Every time a relatively unrecognized athlete defeats a well-established player and crowd favorite, the sports world uses the word “upset” when describing the win. But make no mistake concerning the win: There was nothing upsetting about Dustin Brown’s latest second-round win at Wimbledon vs the former champion but presently 10th-seeded player and two-time Wimbledon champion, Rafael “Rafa” Nadal.
In the biggest victory of his career, Brown, a 30-year-old loc-wearing professional who comes from Germany and also raised in his father’s birthplace of Jamaica, has been referred to as non-traditional. A large part of this identification has to do with his looks. The same as Venus and Serena Williams when they initially stepped onto the tennis world, commentators and audiences alike have been a little distracted by Brown’s dreadlocks, which he’s been growing for more than half of his life. Basically, Brown doesn’t fit the outdated impression of what a tennis player in a grand slam tournament arena resembles.
