Pablo Carreno Busta is celebrating a big win…
In a match involving the two lowest remaining men’s seeds, the 25-year-old Spanish tennis player, seeded at No. 21, edged 27th-seeded Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay 6-1, 3-6 7-6 (4) at the Indian Wells Masters.
Cuevas tied it 3-all in the tiebreak before Carreno Busta won the final five points to close out the two-hour match.
It was the biggest singles quarterfinal of their respective careers. Carreno Busta had not reached that stage of a Masters 1000 event in 17 previous tries; Cuevas hadn’t been there in 29 tries.
Carreno Busta avenged his loss to Cuevas in the Sao Paulo semifinals on March 6 and in the process snapped Cuevas’ seven-match winning streak.
Carreno Busta will play No. 3 Stan Wawrinka in the semifinals.
