Not sure what to say?

Today through Australian Open I learned of Brads passing from MND. I went to primary school with Brad and he was in my class. Brad was a natural with a gift of being a handsome young man. The girls thought Brad was it! At sport lessons on the tennis court Brad was a natural and his talent clearly showed at that early age.
I am pleased to read Brad reached the heights of tennis and related positions in tennis business.
My condolences go to Brads family.

I was very sad to read of Brad's death. We went to KHHS and enjoyed schoolies at Tiki Village. He was playing tennis of course in Brisbane. A lovely man. My condolences to his family.

It is sad that Brad died of a motor neuron disease. Brad was the star in my year 7 PE class at Killarney Heights High School in 1971. He was as tall as me, a strong lad and talented. He was also very popular and a natural leader. We often had competitions over the years in various activities and I was always impressed with his skill and determination. We all knew he was going to do well in tennis. He did, too, and told me one day he would help me out financially! He reached #34 in the world...

One year on and we still struggle with the reality of it.

May the god of comfort be a source of strength for your family at this difficult time. 2Corn 1:3, 4. Deepest Sympathy, Sue, Concord, NC

I worked on the Volvo Grand Prix when Brad was a player on the Tour, long before his success off the court at the ATP. I remember him as the nicest, kindest player on the Tour. I will never forgot his infectious smile and good humor, and how he treated everyone equally. My condolences to his family, but especially his young children. They can take some small comfort in knowing what a remarkable person their father was.

My most sincere condolences, particularly to Brad's mother Hazel whom I knew in Warialda in the 1930's.

It was a pleasure knowing Brad, & it's a sad loss for tennis. BILL LLOYD, ATP ALUMNI.
