Queenslander and Maryborough local, Alec Braund has had a dream start to his 2022 season, receiving a wildcard into the Australian Open Junior Boys Singles main draw. The wildcard tops off a stellar 12 month run for Braund having had success at the Darwin J4 ITF, runners-up at the Gold Coast J5 and winning the AMT University Open. With a remarkable 43-8 overall win/loss singles record in 2021, Braund was a worthy recipient of the 2022 AO Junior Boys Singles wildcard.

Unfortunately, Braund’s first round opponent, No.14 Seed Croatian, Dino Prizmic proved too strong, defeating Braund in straight sets 6-1 6-1.

With Brisbane 2032 Olympics on the horizon, we look forward to following Alec’s performance and wish him the best for the upcoming season.
