Americans Nakashima, Giron reach ATP San Diego Open final

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Brandon Nakashima will face former NCAA champion Marcos Giron in the San Diego Open singles final, an all-Southern California matchup between two friends who are also frequent practice partners. Each advanced Saturday in the $612,000 event, played in sunny, wind-swept conditions at San Diego’s Barnes Tennis Center. Giron ousted No. 1 seed Daniel Evans of Britain 6-3, 7-5 to put the former UCLA star in his first final on the ATP Tour. Now in his third year on the pro tour, the hard-serving Nakashima won 83% of his first serves against Australia’s unseeded Christopher O’Connell for a 6-4, 7-6 (3) victory.
