Dustin Brown (born 8 December 1984)[1] is a German-Jamaican professional tennis player. He rose to fame after beating Rafael Nadal in the 2014 Halle Open and Wimbledon 2015, and is known for his technique, speed, and entertaining playing style, often entertaining the crowd with trick shots. He is also known as „Dreddy“ due to his distinctive long dreadlocked hair.

Brown competes mainly on the ATP Challenger Tour, in singles and doubles, having won 31 overall titles. His highest career singles world rank at No. 64 was in October 2016, and doubles world rank at No. 43 in May 2012.[2][3] Brown is also notable for being one of the only two players to remain undefeated against Rafael Nadal after playing more than one match with him, holding a 2–0 head-to-head record.

Brown has yet to make an ATP tour singles final but has made two semifinals at the 2016 Open Sud de France and the 2016 Swiss Open Gstaad. In doubles, he won two titles on the ATP Tour.
