All-American Semifinal Set
CARY, NC, September 15, 2017 – An all-American singles semifinal is set for Saturday afternoon as Kevin King takes on No. 6 Noah Rubin. Both Rubin and King won their quarterfinal matches in straight sets. Rubin took advantage of Garin’s second serve, winning 72% of those points.
The other semifinal match will feature Marcelo Arevalo and Cameron Norrie. Arevalo defeated No. 5 Mitchell Krueger in today’s quarterfinal match, and Norrie defeated No. 7 Mackenzie McDonald, leaving Noah Rubin the only seeded player in the semifinals.
Arevalo, straight from his singles and doubles titles in the Bogota Challenger last week, has a chance to repeat the feat as he plays in the doubles semifinal match Saturday afternoon. Arevalo and his partner, Miguel Angel Reyes-Varela, will take on the No. 1 team of Austin Krajicek and Jackson Withrow.
