E.J. Crawford | October 9, 2017
Michael Mmoh continued his climb up the world rankings, reaching the semifinals at the $100,000 USTA Pro Circuit Challenger in Stockton, Calif., last week. He was joined in the semis by fellow American Tim Smyczek.
With the run to Stockton’s final four, Mmoh inched up three spots in the rankings to No. 153 – just 12 spots off his career best. The 19-year-old has made steady progress this year, winning the USTA Pro Circuit Challenger in Lexington, Ky., and reaching the final at a Futures in Wichita, Kan., and the semifinals at the Challenger in San Francisco.
