Early Life and High School

Brad Gilbert was born on August 9, 1961 in Oakland, California into a Jewish family. He started playing tennis when he was only four years old after his father, Barry, took up the sport. Despite his diminutive height, Gilbert became the top tennis player at Piedmont High School, following in the footsteps of his older siblings Barry Jr. and Dana, previous top players at the school.

Collegiate Career

For college, Gilbert played tennis at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California from 1980 to 1982. During that time, he won the California Junior College Singles Championship and the US Amateur Hardcourt Championship. Gilbert transferred to Pepperdine University in 1982, and reached the finals of that year's NCAA Championship.

Professional Tour Career

After leaving Pepperdine in 1982, Gilbert turned professional. Later in the year, he won his first top-level singles title, in Taipei. In 1983, Gilbert made it to the third round at Wimbledon, and in 1984 reached the fourth round at the Australian Open. He claimed his first doubles title at the 1985 Tel Aviv Open, partnered with Ilie N─âstase; he also won the singles event. The next year, Gilbert again won the Tel Aviv singles title, and also won singles titles in Memphis, Livingston, and Vienna in addition to the doubles title in Miami. In Grand Slam tournaments, he reached the fourth round at both Wimbledon and the US Open. Gilbert's only title in 1987 came in Scottsdale, although he made it to the singles quarterfinals at the US Open and Cincinnati Open, and the doubles quarterfinals in Miami, Cincinnati, and Paris.

Gilbert had his most successful year on the tour in 1989, when he won five singles titles: in Memphis, Stratton Mountain, Livingston, Cincinnati, and San Francisco. His 1990 season was also impressive, as he won singles titles in Rotterdam, Orlando, and Brisbane and reached the final of the inaugural Grand Slam Cup. He also reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. Gilbert achieved his career-high singles ranking of world No. 4 in early 1990. After failing to win any titles in 1991, he won the doubles title at the 1992 Hong Kong Open with Jim Grabb. That would be Gilbert's final career title before he retired from the tour in 1995. He finished his professional playing career with 20 singles titles and three doubles titles, and with a win-loss singles record of 519-288.
