The Australian and third-seeded Matthew Ebden took out the top seeded American Denis Kudla in straight sets 7-5 6-3 to reach the Final of the Tiburon Challenger event. He will go up against the unseeded Canadian Peter Polansky for the title.
After Ebden broke to win the opener by 7 games to 5, he rode the wave of momentum and got another break to quickly lead 2 love in the second set.
Kudla struggled with inconsistency on serve and never quite recovered as he eventually went on to lose the Semi-Final match. .
