Tuesday was a day of exciting play, with Dennis Kudla (USA) defeating Tim Smyczek (USA), who won the Tiburon Challenger in 2015 by besting Kudla. Last year’s Challenger winner, Darian King (BAR) also went to down to defeat in a well-played match against Mackenzie McDonald (USA). Tom Fawcett (USA) overcame player-to-watch Ruben Bemelmans (BEL) and Deiton Bauman defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime, another young player who has been attracting attention. Wednesday promises to be another day of high-quality tennis.
