Rhyne Williams advanced to his third career Challenger quarterfinal Thursday, beating rising Virginia sophomore Mitchell Frank 6-2, 6-2 at the $50,000 Binghamton (N.Y.) Challenger.
Williams now faces New Zealander Daniel King-Turner, currently ranked No. 564. With eight competitors left in the tournament, only one seeded player remains in the draw: sixth-seeded Jamie Baker of Great Britain.
Like singles, there is only one seeded team left in doubles. That team is Williams and former Vol Tennys Sandgren. The duo beat Greg Jones of Australia and Greg Ouellette of the United States 6-4, 6-2.
Hubble Advances in Poland:
A day after beating the top seeds at the Ponzan Challenger in Poland, former Vol Adam Hubble and Nima Roshan cruised into the semifinals with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Martin Alund and Javier Marti.
The Aussie duo now faces the third-seeded Romanian pair in Andrei Daescu and Florin Mergea. Daescu is a former All-American at Oklahoma.
