Liam Draxl did it again! Kentucky’s star tennis player and overall tournament No. 1 seed made another big comeback to advance to the NCAA Men’s Tennis Elite Eight, beating No. 10 Adam Walton (Tennessee) 3-6, 6-4, 7-5.

Take that, Vols! As UK notes, Draxl hasn’t dropped a third set all season.

Draxl will play the winner of No. 8 Gabriel Decamps (UCF) vs. Luc Fomba (TCU) tomorrow. (UPDATE: Decamps defeated Fomba 5-7, 6-3, 6-4)

Meanwhile, Kentucky’s other Sweet 16 participant, Gabriel Diallo, lost to William Blumberg (North Carolina) 6-3, 6-1. Stupid Tar Heels.
