Broady produces a career-best win

Liam Broady, Britain’s last player standing in the Olympic singles, has produced a shock 6-2 7-6 (7-2) victory over Wimbledon semi-finalist Hubert Hurkacz to reach the last 16, declaring: “It is obviously a career-best win and career-high moment.”

It's obviously a career-best win and career-high moment, coming in and representing GB at the Olympics, so it couldn't have gone better Liam Broady

And he takes on Frenchman Jeremy Chardy for a semi-final place.

Broady told anyone who would listen that he did not want to be just “making up the numbers”’.

His comments came after a late call-up to the team following the withdrawals of Dan Evans and Jo Konta, after the British No.1s contracted Covid.

Broady, world-ranked 143 and enjoying his best season, proved his first-round victory against, Francisco Cerundolo was no fluke against Pole Hurkacz who knocked out multi-Slam champion Roger Federer at the All England Club recently.

The 27-year-old said: “It’s obviously a career-best win and career-high moment,
coming in and representing GB at the Olympics, so it couldn’t have gone better.

“I don’t think anyone expects very much of me, I think that kind of works well for me. It’s nice to get this result just to know that I’m doing some things right.

“Obviously to beat somebody of that calibre at the Olympics, you have to be doing better than I was, so it’s nice.”

Broady added how just travelling to the Games provided its headaches.

He said: “It was a bit of a nightmare to be honest. I’m probably going a bit bald from it. I found out last Friday and then things shut down a little bit over here for the weekend and I was flying on the Tuesday. Twelve hours a day trying to organise everything and luckily we got it all sorted.”

Broady, who had been scheduled to take part in two tournaments in the United States, also revealed he had been unsure of taking up the offer to compete in Japan but made his mind up after seeking the advice of his coach.

He said: “The life of a professional tennis player is being ready for everything.”
