MAJOR JR ADVANCES

Kevin Major Jr, now a graduate from Seminole State College, has started his professional career and is off to a great start.

In his debut after just graduating, Major Jr advanced in the United States Tennis Association’s Tournament with an upsetting victory yesterday at the Jimmy Evert Tennis Club in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“Things are going good. I’m starting to play a lot more tournaments now,” Major Jr told The Tribune. “This is my first tournament for the summer and hopefully I am able to win it. I’m playing okay right now. I haven’t played in a while, so I’m still finding my rhythm. But I’m enjoying the experience.”

In the round of 16, Major Jr pulled off a 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 win over top seed Charlie Sullivan. In the round of 32, Major ousted No.9 seed Jesse Ross 6-2, 6-0.

He won his second round match 6-3, 6-2 over Gabriel Keymer after he opened with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Jack Vance in the first round.
