Top-seeded American David Wagner defended his home turf at the 2013 NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters in Mission Viejo, Calif., beating challenger Lucas Sithole of South Africa, 0-6, 6-2, 6-2, to win the quad singles event on Monday.
The defending US Open Wheelchair Tennis Competition singles champion had Wagner in trouble early on, posting a bagel in the opening set, before the California native delighted the hometown crowd by taking 12 of the final 16 games to claim the match.  
On Sunday,Wagner and partner Nick Taylor retained their title with a 6-1, 6-2 win over their fellow American Greg Hasterok and Canadian Sarah Hunter, the second seeds.  
Taylor and Wagner dropped just the second game of the opening set and maintained their dominance in the second set to close out victory and win their seventh Doubles Masters title since 2005.
