Two big upsets highlight fourth round singles action Tuesday.
In other 18s singles action, the higher seeds prevailed in nearly every match.

Top seed Brian Baker of Nashville TN and second seed Prakash Amritraj of Encino CA both cruised in to the fifth round with 6-3, 6-0 wins. For fourth round results in 18 singles, click here.
In 16 singles, several favorites lost Tuesday, with Robert Cameron of Lenoir City TN falling in straight sets to Travis Helgeson of Overland Park KS. Cameron, who dominated the Clay Courts last month, did not play with his usual consistency and Helgeson took full advantage of the third seed?s lackluster play in his 7-5, 6-2 win. Fifth seed Brandon Wai of San Diego CA was defeated by Chong Wang of Corpus Christi TX, 7-6 (2), 6-1. Number one seed Yevgeny Supeko of Billings MT and number two seed Vahid Mirzadeh of Wellington FL advanced with straight set victories. For fourth round results in 16s singles, click here.
