American tennis star Jennifer Brady made headlines after reaching the Australian Open 2021 finals. The 25-year-old has played some fantastic tennis in the Slam and has certainly shocked everyone with her magnificent skills. Given her namesake, fans are wondering whether she has some sort of link or connection with the NFL legend Tom Brady or not.

Although both Jennifer and Tom are Americans and share the same surname ‘Brady’, they have no such relation. There is a high possibility that two might not even know each other personally.

Even though both are brilliant in their respective sports, they don’t share anything in common. While Jennifer Brady has earned herself a glowing reputation at the Australian Open 2021, Tom Brady recently won another Super Bowl and is still dominating his sport at 43.

Jennifer Brady and her journey so far

Jennifer Brady made her Grand Slam debut at the US Open 2014 as a wildcard entrant. However, she didn’t have a great start and was not able to deliver in the early part of her career. She had some tough matches and failed to find her form and momentum until last year.

The World No.24 player has played amazingly after the long break due to the coronavirus pandemic. She won her first WTA title at the Top Seed Open 2020 by defeating Jil Teichmann in straight sets in the finals.

Following this, the American player broke into the semi-finals of the US Open 2020 after defeating the likes of Angelique Kerber and Yulia Putintseva. However, it was Naomi Osaka who battled past her there, and she will certainly be looking to exact her revenge this time.

Brady is in the finals of the Australian Open 2021, and she’ll certainly try to win the Slam at any cost. Even though she is up against the mighty Osaka, she’ll look to continue her great form in the final and win her maiden Grand Slam title. Her fans also have great expectations from her and want her to bring more glory to America, just like Tom Brady has so often.
