Wild Card Brodsky Loses, Learns

17-year-old Brooklyn-raised wild-card qualifier Gail Brodsky impressed the crowd on Court 7, and had a set point in the first set, but never quite achieved the consistency to beat 13th-seed Agnes Szavay. Szavay ended up winning, 7-5, 6-3.

Brodsky earned her wild card by winning the 2008 USTA Girls’ 18s National Championship last weekend in Berkeley, California, and is currently ranked #387 in the world. She said the experience gave her “a whole lot of confidence” moving forward.
