San Diego, Calif. - Cal's Wayne Wong, the No. 1 seed in the Flight 1 Singles Draw, defeated San Diego State's Daniel Jung today by the score of 6-3, 0-6, 6-1 to win the 2002 San Diego All-College Flight 1 Singles championship.
Wong breezed through the first round, defeating UC San Diego's Jeff Wilson in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2. The round of 16 brought tougher competition, but a win nonetheless, 7-6, 6-4 over San Diego State's Gabe Coren. As could be predicted, the level of play increased in the quarterfinals as it took Wong three sets to defeat Arizona's Colin O'Grady, 6-2, 6-7, 6-2. San Diego's Nicolas Beuque gave Wong a ride in the semifinals, taking the match to three sets in a 6-3, 6-7, 6-1 Wong victory. The win launched Wong into today's final match, where he played possibly his finest tennis of the tournament in the win.
