Kaes Van't Hof, the No. 1 seed in the boys 18s singles, was upset in the quarterfinals by Sam Querrey, 4-6, 6-3, 6-1.

Patrick Laverty It was most likely a bit of hyperbole caused by the magnitude of the game, but when Kaes Van't Hof dropped the eighth game of the third set after having five game points against Gary Sacks, he shouted out, "Worst game ever."

Sacks, the reigning CIF Southern Section Division I champion, then closed out Van't Hof for a 7-6, 2-6, 6-3 victory to advance to the quarterfinals of the boys 18s bracket at the 101st annual Southern California Tennis Association junior sectional championships.
