  • MICHAEL MMOH ADVANCES TO SINGLES AND DOUBLES CHAMPIONSHIP

CARY, NC, September 14, 2019 – Michael Mmoh will have a busy Sunday as he competes in both the singles and doubles Championship matches.  Mmoh defeated fellow American, JC Aragone, in one of Saturday’s three set matches. This was the first meeting for Mmoh and Aragone.  Mmoh, who already has four Challenger titles, will face the No. 1 seed, Andreas Seppi, in Sunday’s Championship match.

Seppi defeated France’s Enzo Couacaud in another three-set match that lasted just over 2 ½ hours. Despite a dip in winning his first serve points in the second set, Seppi was able to edge Couacaud in the set tiebreak to level the match. In the third set, Seppi capitalized on his strong returns to take the match and advance to Sunday. This will be the first meeting for Seppi, currently ranked 77 in the world, and Mmoh.

Mmoh and his partner Sekou Bangoura will take on Treat Huey and John-Patrick Smith in the Championship Doubles match.  Mmoh and Bangoura received a walk over when Tommy Paul withdrew due to injury.
