Brad Gilbert was a professional tennis player who won 20 pro singles tournaments during his career, adding three doubles titles. His best world ranking was #4, which he achieved in January 1990. Gilbert’s best finish at Grand Slam singles were quarter-final appearances at the US Open in 1987 and at Wimbledon in 1990. He made the finals of the 1989 WCT Championship, and went to the semi-finals of the 1987 Tour Finals, and in all, Gilbert had 20 runner-up finishes in singles events on the pro tennis tour.

His best year on tour was 1989 when he won five singles titles, and claimed wins over four future Hall of Famers – Pete Sampras, Michael Chang, Boris Becker, and Stefan Edberg.

After retiring from competition in 1995, Gilbert coached Andre Agassi from 1994-2002, helping him win six majors during that period.
