American world No. 57 Chris Gordon will attempt to dethrone reigning Life Time Fitness Las Vegas Open champion Campbell Grayson Saturday evening in Nevada.
The twenty-eight-year-old from New York City reached the semifinals with two, three-game victories; first against England’s Rueben Phillips 11-1, 13-11, 15-13 Thursday, then Indian qualifier Kush Kumar 11-3, 11-9, 11-5 in Friday night’s quarterfinals.
Saturday’s semifinal will be Gordon’s seventh career match up against the world No. 50 from New Zealand. Gordon had lost each of their encounters, until their most recent match in the 2014 Windy City Open where Gordon won the four-game qualifier.
Grayson won the second U.S. Pro Series title in 2014 after a successful U.S. campaign that included claiming the 2014 Las Vegas Open title.
The second semifinal will be contested by Englishmen Tom Ford, the four seed, and Angus Gillams, the six seed, who upset second-seeded Mohamed Reda in the quarterfinals.
Semifinal play begins at 5pm local time at Life Time Fitness Summerlin.
