Daniel Phillips in action in Guatemala

Bermuda’s teenage tennis star Daniel Phillips has had a successful day in Guatemala, winning both his matches to progress to the semi-final in the singles and to the doubles final.

Phillips beat his doubles partner Humza Noor in the singles quarter-final 6-1, 6-4, losing his first games of the tournament after beating Rodrigo Lopes and Santiga Vela 6-0, 6-0 in the opening two rounds.

The 17-year-old, who is the top seed in the J4 event, will now face Guatemalan Marcelo Castellanos tomorrow for a spot in the final.

Noor and Phillips were clearly mature enough to put their quarter-final rivalry to one side when marching into the doubles final courtesy of an easy 6-2, 6-4 success over local pair Castellanos and Jigme Balseiro.

Phillips is yet to lose a set in either singles or doubles at the tournament and is seeking back-to-back wins on the ITF Junior tour after winning last week’s tournament in Boca Raton.
