April 24, 2010
Klahn edged USC's Daniel Nguyen 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 in one semifinal, while teammate Ryan Thacher dropped a 6-4, 6-3 decision to USC's Robert Farah on the opposite side of the bracket. Klahn and Farah have squared off three times this year, with Klahn posting a win at the Sherwood Cup back in January before Farah notched victories in both dual matches. All three meetings were decided in three sets.
Hilary Barte dispatched California's Marina Cossou 6-2, 6-4 in the semifinals and will now battle UCLA's Yasmin Schnack on Sunday morning. Barte is 3-0 this year against Schnack, securing wins in both dual matches along with a 7-5, 6-3 triumph at the ITA All-American Championships in her first match of the season back in October.
Doubles teams have also continued to work their way through, led by Klahn and Thacher on the men's side and Barte and Lindsay Burdette in the women's draw.
Competition wraps up on Sunday morning.
