Escobedo Keeps Up Winning Ways

The ATP website recently featured ATP #NextGen rising American Ernesto Escobedo from West Covina. You can view the article in its entirety by clicking on the below link.


After hard-court results in the first half of 2016 that didn’t meet his high standards, the 20-year-old Californian broke through with his first ATP Challenger Tour title this July in Lexington, Kentucky. The win gave him the USTA Pro Circuit wild card into the US Open and he took advantage by winning his opening round match in New York City, then rode that momentum to his third Challenger final of the season this past month in Cary, North Carolina.

Currently No. 160 in the world, Escobedo calls fellow Southern California pro Taylor Fritz among his friends on tour. “We have a great relationship. Tiafoe, Mmoh, Taylor Fritz, you name it. We all have fun off the court,” Escobedo told the ATP website. “But on the court, there are no friends. You have to go out there and try to win.”
