Brian Edward Gottfried (born January 27, 1952) is a retired tennis player from the United States who won 25 singles titles and 54 doubles titles during his professional career. The right-hander was the runner-up at the 1977 French Open and achieved a career-high singles ranking on the ATP tour on June 19, 1977, when he became World No. 3.

Tennis career

Junior & college

Gottfried was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He began playing tennis at the age of 5 after receiving a racquet as a gift.[1] In all, Gottfried won 14 national junior titles.[2]

In 1970, as a freshman at Trinity University in Texas, he won the USTA boys 18s singles championship, as well as the doubles championship with Alexander Mayer.[3] He was an All-American in 1971 and 1972.

Professional career

Gottfried began his professional tennis career in 1972.[1] He won five tournaments in 1976 and was runner-up at the French Open. Newsweek described him as the "best male tennis player in the world at the moment" in April 1977.[1] He won the Italian Open doubles championship in four consecutive years (1974–77). He won the men's doubles at the French Open in 1975 and 1977. In 1976, he won the men's doubles title at Wimbledon. He ended his career tied for 22nd in open era singles titles leaders, and tied for 12th in doubles.[1]

Arthur Ashe liked to recall how Gottfried missed his daily practice session to get married, but atoned by doubling his practice time the next day.[4][1]
