American college player Christopher Eubanks of upset Taylor Fritz in the first round of the Atlanta Open, earning his first career ATP victory.


The 21-year-old from Georgia Tech, a two-time Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year, lost to Radek Stepanek in three sets at the same tournament in 2015. In 2016, Eubanks and Donald Young played doubles at the Atlanta Open and reached the semifinals.

“Everything’s a learning process,” Eubanks said after his win over Fritz. “If I can continue to learn and get better, from the wins as well as the losses, I think I can be a much better player down the line.”

Eubanks will face 20-year-old Jared Donaldson in the next round. Donaldson, ranked No. 59, reached the Round of 16 as a qualifier at Miami before losing against Jack Sock.

“Jared is a great player,” Eubanks said. “He’s had a stellar career to this point. I think he’s going to do some pretty great things. I’m just pretty excited to get out there and go about it with him.”
