Oct. 22, 2006
MALIBU, CALIF. -- After an outstanding run through the ITA West Regional singles action, USC junior Jamil Al-Agba was knocked out in the singles semifinals by UCLA's Chris Surapol on Sunday in Malibu, Calif.
Third-seeded Al-Agba had roared through four matches, including a three-set victory over UCLA's No. 5 seed Mathieu Dehaine in yesterday's quarterfinals, to earn his shot against No. 2 seed Surapol in the semis. There, Surapol held strong against Al-Agba to post a 6-4, 6-4 victory that moves Surapol into the championship against Pepperdine's Andre Begemann.
The USC men's tennis team returns to fall action next week at USD's Hidden Dual, which is set to run Oct. 28-30 in San Diego, Calif.
