The last quarterfinal in the Lotto Arena started very exciting. The two young tennis players were evenly matched at the start of the first set. The 22-year-old Spaniard came back from a 5-3 deficit to 5-5, but then had to acknowledge his superiority in the California man.

Brooksby, who came out of qualifying and already played his fifth game in Antwerp, continued his momentum. The right-handed player from Sacramento, who won a set against Novak Djokovic at the US Open in the eighth finals, won all important points in the second set and came out victorious.

The 20-year-old American has turned pro this season and has already reached a final in Newport and a semifinal in Washington. He has also won three titles on the Challenger circuit.
