Delray Tennis : Christian Harrison Advance To A First ATP Tour Semi-Final

Christian Harrison continued his dream run at the Delray Beach Open as the World Number 789 beat Italian Gianluca Mager 7-6 6-4 to advance to a first ATP tour semi-final.

The 26-year-old American qualifier won 83 per cent of his first-serve points to become the second-lowest-ranked semi-finalist in tournament history behind Juan Martin Del Potro, who was 1,042nd in 2016.

Harrison will next meet Hubert Hurkacz of Poland after the fourth seeded World Number 35 saw off Ecuadorian Roberto Quiroz 6-4 6-4.
