Oct. 21, 2006
MALIBU, CALIF. - USC junior Jamil Al-Agba tacked up another singles win at the ITA West Regional in Malibu, Calif., to punch his ticket into Sunday's semifinals. The third-seeded Al-Agba will face UCLA's No. 2 seed Chris Surapol at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday. In doubles play, USC's Dejan Cvetkovic / Jason McNaughton came up just short of the semifinals with an 8-6 loss to UCLA's Dehaine/Drean on Saturday.
On Saturday, Al-Agba had UCLA's fifth-seeded Mathieu Dehaine on the docket for the quarterfinals. The Bruin forced Al-Agba into a third set, but the Trojan junior held strong and came away with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 victory to lock down that semifinal slot against another Bruin opponent, Surapol.
