Bermudian Daniel Phillips has reached the final of the J4 Guatemala Tournament which is part of the ITF World Tennis Tour Juniors circuit.

Phillips, who had to come through a qualifying tournament to earn his place at the event, will face seventh-seed Diego Duran, of El Salvador, today, having overcome Guatemala’s RafaelBotran Neutze convincingly in straight sets, 6-1,6-3, today.

The 16-year-old got his tournament off to the perfect start with victory over Chile’s Mikel Josu Garmendia De La Iglesia 6-3, 6-4, in the first round earlier this week.

Building on that momentum, further success followed in the second round, with a hard fought victory against Humza Noor of the United States, winning 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, before he comfortably defeated Atakan Karahan of Turkey 6-2, 6-1 to reach the final four.
