Cheshire-born Nick Brown, a sandy-haired right-hander, had two shots at a pro career. Winner of the 1980 under-21 and 1983 senior British Championships, he retired at 23 in 1984 to coach in Belgium, France and at a David Lloyd club in London. He resumed his playing career in 1989, when he was called up for Davis Cup duty. He represented Great Britain in four ties from 1989-1991, amassing a 2-3 record. Brown received four Wimbledon singles wild cards in 1982, 1989-91, and is best remembered for reaching the 1991 third round. Ranked No. 591 Brown, who travelled to the All England Club with his Ealing friend Victor on a Harley-Davidson motorbike each day, defeated No. 10 Goran Ivanisevic 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(3), 6-3 in the second round on Court No. 13 before losing to Thierry Champion in four sets. He was the first Briton to beat a seeded player at Wimbledon since John Lloyd beat Eliot Teltscher in 1985. Brown reached one ATP singles final at 1989 Bristol, beating Michael Stich in the quarter-finals en route to the title (l. to Jelen). He also advanced to three ATP doubles finals at 1990 Manchester (w/Jones), 1991 Stuttgart Indoor (w/Bates) and 1991 Manchester (w/Jones). He reached the 1990 Australian Open quarter-finals (w/Oosting). Brown attained a career-high No. 145 singles ranking (25 September 1989) and No. 42 doubles high (23 September 1991). On the ATP Challenger Tour he won one singles title at 1989-Jakarta (d. Turner) and clinched four doubles titles – 1989-Madeira (w/Castle), 1989-Manchester (w/Fulwood), 1990-Telford (w/Fulwood), 1992-Bangalore (w/Foster) – from 11 finals – 1983-Essen (w/Shaw), 1989-Telford (w/Bates), 1989-Jerusalem (w/Fulwood), 1989-Thessaloniki (w/Fulwood), 1990-Croydon (w/Fulwood), 1990-Thessaloniki (w/Carlsson), 1992-Launceston (w/Foster). In retirement he coached Tim Henman (as a junior), international players and several top British juniors. He was coach to Great Britain’s Federation Cup team from 1998-2003. He is currently coach of the Polish Davis Cup team and also a technical consultant to the LTA. Bio: James Buddell
