German-Jamaican tennis player Dustin “Dreddy” Brown has his sights firmly set on breaking into the ATP World Tour‘s Top 50 in 2015 and advancing to the second week of a major for the first time in his career. Brown, who finished the best season of his career with a ranking of 89 in 2014, disclosed his goals for the new year to ATP World Tour website during his recent visit to Jamaica.

“I think 2014 has been my best year so far on the ATP World Tour with a lot of big wins over guys that I used to just watch on TV, like Nadal, Isner, Ivo Karlovic and Fernando Verdasco. Especially the match against Nadal (in Halle); it was unreal and definitely gave me tons of confidence for the rest of the season,” Brown told ATPWorldTour.com.

“I finished the year at No. 89 without winning a round at a Grand Slam tournament. My goals for 2015 are breaking into the Top 50, playing well in the slams and trying to reach the second week of a major for the first time,” he added.

Born in Germany to a Jamaican father and German mother, Brown was ranked as high as 78 in 2014. He also had the distinction of being ranked 43 in doubles in 2012. Brown began his career representing Jamaica, before opting to play under the German flag in 2010. To date, his career earnings for singles and doubles stand at US$1,344,996.

The 30-year-old tennis pro was in Montego Bay this month visiting family and friends and conducting a tennis clinic for children in Montego Bay.
