Re: Dustin Brown from Jamaica Happy Bandwagon
After a poor 2011 for Dustin, with three challenger SFs being his best results of the year and having a 28-34 overall record on the season, dropping from #92 at the end of 2010 to #161 at the end of 2011, and one win from six tournaments to begin 2012, Dustin has found his form and has won nine of his last ten matches, winning the Bath challenger over Mertl in the final, making the SF of Sarajevo, and is currently in R2 of Barletta after defeating Giannessi 6-1 6-4 in the first round. Everything is a roller-coaster with Dustin, his form, his attitude, but currently signs are pointing up. Hopefully this is not temporary but a sign of the future for Dustin the entire season.
In doubles, Dustin won three challengers, made it to the finals of two others and finished #69 in doubles in 2011. To start 2012, Dustin has been impressive, winning the title in Sarajevo, making the finals of Quimper and Cherbourg and the SF of Bath and Bergamo with Jonathan Marray, the SF of Montpellier in ATP competition with Zovko, and with his good friend Tsonga, made the finals of Marseille. He is currently ranked #54 in doubles.
Dustin plays his country-mate Brands in the second round of Barletta. GL, Dustin!
