British junior George Morgan has reached the semi-finals of the boys' singles at the Australian Open in Melbourne after a three set victory over the No.8 seed Jeson Patrombon of the Philippines.
Morgan recovered from a set down to win 5-7, 6-2, 6-3 in 2 hours and 8 minutes, breaking his opponent seven times and winning 109 of 203 points to secure his place in the last four.
The Briton now takes on the top seed and ITF junior No.1 Jiri Vesely of Czech Republic in Friday’s semi final.
Morgan, who won the 18U boys' singles title at the Orange Bowl in Florida last December, meets Vesely for the first time as he looks to add to wins this week over Thiago Moura Monteiro, Jae Hwan Kim, Mate Delic and Patrombon.
Vesely, a left hander born in Pribram, Czech Republic, is in impressive form this week after winning each of his singles matches in straight sets as well as reaching the doubles final with Slovakian Filip Horansky.
The 17 year-old partnered Oliver Golding to gold in the doubles at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore last August
The other boys' singles semi-final sees Spain's Roberto Carballes Baena (6) take on Australian Luke Saville.
