Kentucky’s Liam Draxl is moving on to the Final Four in the singles draw of the 2021 NCAA Men’s Tennis Tournament. The tournament’s No. 1 overall seed eliminated Gabriel Decamps from the University of Central Florida in two sets, winning 7-6(6), 6-1.

If you’ve been following along, you know Draxl struggled early in his first three tournament matches by dropping all three first sets in his three comeback victories. Today, however, he won the first set on this wild ride of a set point:

With today’s victory, Draxl becomes the first Kentucky Wildcat in the semifinals since Eric Quigley made it all the way to the final match in 2012.

Draxl will play Florida’s Sam Riffice in tomorrow’s Final Four match for a shot at the national championship.

Beat the Gators.

    He’s really, really good. He has no quit in him whatsoever and he crushed his opponent today. Go Big Blue.

    I watched Draxl yesterday and he has the gumption to win it all, but he can’t have any complacency on any point the rest of the way. I believe that he as what it takes to win it all. GO BIG BLUE!!!!!
