American Defeats Defending Champ in Acapulco
American tennis player, Ryan Harrison, born in Shreveport, Louisiana, defeated defending 2014 Abierto Mexicano Telcel champion, Grigor Dimitrov, to move on to the quarterfinals.
Ryan, ranked 169th, comes from a bloodline of tennis players and athletes and has been ranked in the top 100 before and it appears he is ready to clear that barrier again.
Dimitrov, 10th in the world, made no excuses after the match and wished Harrison the best - the way it should be done.
I imagine many Americans do as well.
See the story.
