Trojans Rep Troy In US Open
Sept. 2, 2009
USC men's tennis has a set of representatives taking part in Grand Slam action this month. Current Trojans Daniel Nguyen and JT Sundling are all set to open their US Open doubles debut tomorrow with a first-round match. Meanwhile, former Trojan Kaes Van't Hof picked up a first-round victory in doubles today, as he and teammate Ryan Harrison got a three-set upset to move on in US Open action.
USC sophomore Daniel Nguyen and freshman JT Sundling will begin their US Open competition in the doubles first round tomorrow (Sept. 3) in a match against Argentina's Gonzalez/Monaco. Nguyen/Sundling earned their place in the US Open main draw by winning the USTA Boys' 18s National Hard Court Championship last month for a wildcard berth.
2008 USC grad Kaes Van't Hof went up against a former Bruin in his first-round doubles match. Van't Hof and Harrison pushed sixth-seeded Frystenberg/Markowski of Poland to three sets and emerged with the upset win and a ticket to the second round with a 6-3, 6-7 (10-12), 7-5 victory. Van't Hof/Harrison now await the winner of Brazil's Bellucci/Daniel and Spain's Lopez/Verdasco first-round match.
