During his final match, Kim was cheered on by 200 local fans that banged drums and chanted 'Vamos Kim' in support of the American competitor.
'It was nice to have the drums beat for you for a change. The atmosphere was really great here,' Kim told a USTA reporter after the match.
Kim graduated from Stanford in 2001 with a degree in economics.
