May 25, 2017

ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia Tech men’s tennis junior Christopher Eubanks advanced to the round of 16 of the NCAA Singles Championship for the first time with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Tulsa’s Or Ram-Harel on Thursday afternoon. Eubanks returns to the courts on Friday, May 26.

“Chris battled through his match today and got a straight-set win,” said Tech head coach Kenny Thorne. “The wind conditions were tougher today and his opponent was a totally different style. I love that Chris made adjustments and found the win. Every round is tough so moving on is all that matters. He will be ready for tomorrow.”

The pair traded games to start off the first set, and stood tied at 3-3. Eubanks broke serve to take the 4-3 lead. Each player pocketed their service games as Eubanks served out the set at 6-4.

The second set remained tight, battling to a 5-5 tie without either athlete breaking. Eubanks broke Ram-Harel’s serve to take the 6-5 advantage with the chance to serve it out. Holding serve, the ACC Player of the Year took the second set at 7-5 to seal the win and advance to his first round of 16.

Eubanks is the first Yellow Jacket to advance to the round of 16 since Guillermo Gomez in 2011.
