Gustav Hansson dropped his first set of the week but he still managed to advance to his first career semifinal with a 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 win over Kevin King (Georgia Tech '12). Hansson was broke at love to start the third set but he broke back from 15/40 to even it at 1-1. Hansson broke in a one-deuce game to go up 4-2 and then he held two more times to close it out.
It looked like Hansson would meet Wake Forest rising sophomore Borna Gojo in the semifinals but Genaro Olivieri came back from a 5-7, 2-5 deficit to win 5-7, 7-5, 6-2. Gojo had a match point on Olivieri's 2-5 service game but after he failed to convert Olivieri ran off 18 of the next 23 points to force a third set. Olivieri broke Gojo three times in the final frame to pull away for the win in 2 hours and 16 minutes
Hansson and Callahan won their first doubles title as a team after knocking off the top seeds Alex Lawson (Notre Dame '16) and Robert Galloway (Wofford '15) 6-3, 6-4. Hansson and Callahan fought off the three break points they faced while they broke Lawson and Galloway twice. The doubles title was the second of the year for Callahan while it was the first of Hansson's career. Scott Marion's article (linked in the tweet) from the Edwardsville Intelligencer has quotes from Callahan, Hansson, and Lawson and also talks about how Callahan and Hansson decided to team up together.
It was a banner day for the Ivy League as Cornell's Colin Sinclair ('17) and Dartmouth's Charlie Broom (rising sophomore) teamed up to win the doubles title at the Belgium F8 Futures in Eupen. Sinclair and Broom dropped the opening set 6-4 to the top seeds Tom Schonenberg and Colin van Beem but they came back to take the second set 6-1. Sinclair and Broom jumped out to a 6-1 lead in the third set supertiebreak and they'd go on to win it 10-5. The title was the first for both players.
