Having played semifinal at the 2020 US Open, American tennis ace Jennifer Brady reached her first Grand Slam final at the Australian Open 2021 after a three-sets(6-4, 3-6, 6-4) victory over the Czech Karolina Muchova on Thursday.
A 25-years-old woman from Pennsylvania claimed her first WTA singles title at the 2020 Top Seed Open. Since then, Brady is exhibiting her best performances in the Women’s tennis circuit.
Especially in the Down Under Summer Series, Jennifer Brady played until the last four at the Grampians Trophy. She now entered into the championship match of Melbourne major event for the first time.
“I can’t feel my legs. My legs are shaking, my heart is racing,” said Brady after her semifinal win at Melbourne Park.
World No.24 continued, “I came out a little strange today. I was super excited but, at the same time, pretty flat-footed. My legs felt fresh but, at the same time, were not moving. I felt like I was stuck in the mud. I didn’t pick up my intensity until the beginning of the third set.”
