At 29, Liam Broady continues to live under the shadow of older sister and former British number 1, Naomi Broady. While Naomi reached a career-best WTA ranking of 54, Liam has never been able to break into the top 100.

British fans have been made to wait by Broady, who turned pro in 2014 and was earmarked as a future successor of Andy Murray due to his unwavering determination and ability to bounce back. While the Scotsman is having a new lease on life in 2023, Broady is also impressing on the ATP tour.

He is enjoying his highest career ranking of 107 and will be moving up to 103 following his participation in the Cassis Challenger. A proper run on the European hard court swing post-US Open can see him break into the top 100 and finally start coming true on the potential he showed as a teenager. However, Broady has maintained his sense of humour during the ups and downs of his career, and one can only cheer him on.

After a challenging start to the 2024 season, Broady is gearing up for the Phoenix Open, looking to turn his fortunes around. Despite a promising performance in the Hong Kong Open earlier in the year, where he secured three wins before falling to eventual champion Andrey Rublev, Broady faced early exits in subsequent tournaments in San Diego, Delray Beach, Acapulco and Indian Wells.

These setbacks led to his drop out of the top 100 rankings, emphasizing the importance of a strong showing in the upcoming tournament. Broady now turns his attention towards the Phoenix Open, his journey to the main draw comes through the qualifying stage. He will want to make it to the main draw, as on his previous appearance in the 2022 edition of the tournament, where he reached the semifinals with notable victories over David Goffin and Arthur Rinderknech.

In a pivotal matchup at the Phoenix Open qualifiers, Broady finds himself facing Maxwell McKennon for the first time. While McKennon holds the advantage of familiar surroundings and a relatively deeper run at lower-level events at Indian Wells events, Broady is under pressure to reverse his recent string of defeats and get his season back on track.

With McKennon ranked at 1059, this encounter presents a unique challenge for Broady, who is eager to break free from his recent slump. Despite facing adversity with four defeats in his last five outings, the Stockport native remains determined to capitalize on this opportunity and showcase his resilience on the court.

Liam Broady’s 2023 campaign so far

The 29-year-old’s season on the main tour has been a challenging one, as he encountered difficulties in finding consistent success. However, he showcased his talent and resilience on the ITF and Challenger circuits, where he made some notable achievements.

Broady’s season started with a promising quarterfinal run in Canberra after coming through the qualifying rounds. Despite the 2-1 defeat to Leandro Riedi, he displayed his potential but unfortunately could not carry that momentum over to the Australian Open, as he was knocked out in the first qualifying round by Emilio Gomez, missing the opportunity to compete in the main draw.

Upon returning to Europe, Broady experienced a breakthrough at the Vilnius Open, where he secured silverware. Zdenek Kolar fell victim to him in the final in straight sets, signalling a positive turning point in his season. However, his next stop in Doha presented a challenging draw, as he faced the formidable Daniil Medvedev in the second round after successfully navigating through the qualifiers.

Continuing on the hard court circuit, Broady showed promise with a quarterfinal appearance in Lugano, Switzerland. Additionally, he reached the final of the Biel Challenger but was unfortunate to retire after the first set due to fitness concerns.

The transition to the clay court swing proved to be a difficult period for Broady. Struggling with injuries and fitness issues, he only managed to secure two wins out of six matches during this phase, making it a forgettable stretch of the season for the British player.

Prior to the Wimbledon Championships, Broady’s main tour performances were inconsistent. While he participated in four events, he only managed to progress past the first round on two occasions, indicating the challenges he faced against higher-ranked opponents.
