Jenson Brooksby caused a stir with his front teeth during his Australian Open match against Casper Ruud. Fans couldn’t figure out what happened and wondered if he chopped it up.

The 2023 Australian Open upset kept coming, with Jenson Brooksby beating second seed Casper Ruud in the second round earlier today (January 19).

The tough American beat last year’s French and US Open runners-up 6-3 7-5 6-7 (4-7) 6-2. The 22-year-old, ranked 39th in the world, reached the third round at Wimbledon last year and the fourth round at the 2021 US Open.

This is his first match in Australia and he will face compatriot Tommy Paul in the next round.

For the young man, this is undoubtedly a career victory. However, during the encounter with Luther, fans couldn’t help but notice that Jenson Brooksby was having problems with his front teeth.

“Do we know what happened to Brooksby’s teeth?” Once upon a time ask during the game. “Important question: What happened to Brooksby’s teeth?” Another questioned.

Fans couldn’t figure out what happened, and wondered if the American broke his tooth during the game. People took to social media to ask what happened and said it distracted them from the action:

However, as fans later pointed out, the problem seemed to resolve itself after a while, and Brooksby didn’t actually lose his teeth at all.

Fans speculated he actually had some food – possibly from a protein bar with altered ends – stuck to his teeth:

Brooksby vs Tommy Paul

After the game, Brooksby was full of praise for Rudd and previewed his fight with Tommy Paul

“First and foremost, Casper is a fighter,” he said Say”I knew it was going to be a great fight. I was very confident at my level and just wanted to be out there and have fun playing.

“I’m really proud of the mental determination I had there, to just turn things around after the third set fight didn’t go my way.”

“It’s definitely going to be another fight,” Brooksby said of facing Paul in the third round. “A lot of Americans are doing great right now, and we’re all pushing each other. I’m just looking forward to the next one.”
