LA JOLLA, Calif. – (March 7, 2020) – Following an exciting day of fourth-round and quarterfinal action, Sunday’s semifinal match-ups are set for the 131st Annual Pacific Coast Men’s Doubles Championship at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.
Co-No. 1 seeds Bradley Frye and Brandon Holt earned a spot in the semifinals after getting past 11th seeded Daniel DeJonge and Adrian Oetzbach of Pepperdine, 6-3, 6-4 in one-hour and 21 minutes.
Earlier in the day, Frye and Holt won their fourth-round match as they sailed past eighth-seeded Adam Schaechterle and Tassilo Schmid of Pepperdine, 6-2, 6-2.
“It feels good. We’ve been playing well and getting better each match,” Frye said after his quarterfinal victory with Holt. “This is a nice weekend to just focus on playing doubles and have fun.”
Many former USC players have won the Pacific Coast Men’s Doubles Championship including Stan Smith, Bob Lutz, Rick Leach and current touring professionals Steve Johnson and Robert Farah.
Frye, a 19-year-old sophomore from Overland Park, Kan., spoke about what it would mean to win the Pacific Coast Men’s Doubles title. “You look at all the guys who have won this title in the past and it’s such an amazing tournament. With all the history in its 131 years and all the great players who have come through here, it would be awesome for sure.”
Holt and Frye will meet USC teammates Stefan Dostanic and Jake Sands, who are seeded third, in Sunday’s semifinals. The other semifinal will pit seventh seeds Ben Draper and Bjorn Hoffmann of UC Berkeley against the third-seeded independent team of Tanner Smith and Colter Smith of Long Beach, Calif.
Tournament officials announced both semifinal matches will begin at 10 a.m. (PDT), with the championship scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m. (PDT).
