COSTA MESA — Austin Di Giulio is not seeded in the boys' 14 singles division of the Costa Mesa Summer Junior Classic. But that's only because he's 10.
So it might've appeared he completed an upset of sorts when he beat No. 2-seeded Alastair Hurry, a Corona del Mar resident, Wednesday at the Costa Mesa Tennis Center. But a look at the scores didn't make the win look like such a shocker.
Di Giulio, a Newport Beach resident, won, 6-0, 6-3. He advanced to today's quarterfinals.
"I think I was overpowering him," Di Giulio said of his victory over Hurry. "I was pretty aggressive. I was finishing up long points and long rallies. I stayed with it."
Di Giulio did say it was a tough match against Hurry. All his matches should be tough this week since he is playing older players.
Against Hurry, Di Giulio trailed, 2-1, in the second set, but he reeled off five straight games to take the match.
