Maxime Cressy was a math major at UCLA.

The 6'7" Cressy continues to work short angles reinforcing his reputation as a shrewd grass-court problem solver.

McEnroe: Coaching Issue is BS Anyway

Relentlessly attacking net, Cressy upset top-seeded Cameron Norrie 7-5, 7-5 at the Rothesay International in Eastbourne to charge into his second semifinal of the season.

The 60th-ranked Cressy smothered net at every opportunity and served with ambition. Cressy served 68 percent, cracked 10 aces, won 80 percent of his first-serve points and dropped serve just once. Cressy broke in the final game of both sets to earn a 100-minute victory.

Cressy opened Eastbourne toppling big-serving compatriot Reilly Opelka 6-3, 6-1. Since then, he's beaten Britain's best back-to-back defeating 33rd-ranked Daniel Evans 7-6(2), 6-4 and the 12th-ranked Norrie today.

Standing between Cressy and his second final of the season is a third straight British opponent, Jack Draper.

In a clash of left-handed British wild cards, Draper defeated Ryan Peniston 6-3, 6-3.

Two American men are through to the final four as third-seeded Taylor Fritz did not drop serve in a 6-3, 6-2 win over Alexander Bublik.

Indian Wells champion Fritz will face either fellow American Tommy Paul or Aussie Alex de Minaur for a place in the final.
