Thompson Reaches Singles and Doubles Finals at So. Cal Intercollegiates

Nov. 5, 2011

LOS ANGELES - Sophomore men's tennis player Clay Thompson posted a pair of wins on Saturday to earn a spot in Monday's singles final at the 55th Southern California Intercollegiate Championships at UCLA's Los Angeles Tennis Center.

Thompson, the tournament's No. 3 seed, advanced to the final with a 6-3, 6-2 upset over top-seeded Yannick Hanfmann of USC in the semifinals. He began the day with a 6-4, 7-6(5) quarterfinal win over BYU's Keaton Cullimore.

BYU's Patrick Kawka also advanced to the final on Saturday, downing UCLA's Alex Brigham, 6-4, 6-2. Thompson and Kawka will square off for the title on Monday at Noon.

In doubles action on Saturday, Brigham and Thompson, the tournament's No. 2 seeded team, advanced to the semifinals with an 8-5 win over USC's Eric Johnson and Johnny Wang. The Bruin duo was supposed to square off against BYU's Georgy Batrakov and Kawka tomorrow, however that match was canceled due to BYU's policy of not allowing its players compete on Sunday. As a result, Brigham and Thompson have advanced directly to the final and will play the winner of USC's Emilio Gomez/ Yannick Hanfmann and Concordia's Gernot Hagemann/Bruno Santarelli on Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
