#Wimbledon First

Former #UVAMTennis player Treat Huey has advanced to the semifinals in Gentlemen’s Doubles at Wimbledon, making him the first-ever Filipino player to make it to the semifinals at Wimbledon.

Huey became the first-ever Filipino to make the semifinals at a Grand Slam earlier this year when he advanced to the semis of mixed doubles at the Australian Open.
