Tracy Austin’s son hopes for a career in tennis

NEWPORT — The son of tennis royalty is trying to carve out a name for himself in the game.

Brandon Holt, whose mother is 1992 International Tennis Hall of Fame inductee Tracy Austin, won an Infosys Hall of Fame Open qualifier over the weekend before missing the main draw with a loss on Monday .

The 24-year-old has just recovered from a hand injury that kept him out of action for eight months, but he is slowly learning what it takes to compete at the highest level.

“You need a hunger or a love to play tennis – or both, probably,” said Holt, who is ranked No. 332 in the world. “I don’t feel like I have to sacrifice too much because I play tennis as a job. But I’m very happy to play here and everyone has a reason why they’re here.
