June 14, 2011 09:21 PM
Below are the Day 4 (Tuesday) results from the boys' and girls' 18, 16, and 14 divisions at the 63rd USTA Florida Jr. State Closed Singles Championships, held June 11-16, 2011, at the Florida Tennis Center in Daytona Beach where each division is down to the final four.

The Top 4 seeds have reached the semifinals in the Girls' 18s and Boys' 16s divisions, but upsets abounded on Tuesday in other divisions as temperatures hovered around the mid-90s with high humidity.

Michael Rinaldi of Palm City is the only unseeded player in any division to reach the final four, on Tuesday ousting No. 11 seed Jackson Murphy of Odessa 6-1, 6-2 to join the Top 3 seeds in the Boys' 18 semifinals.

The Boys' 14s saw two upsets on Tuesday when No. 6-seeded Alex Rybakov of Coral Springs had an easy time with No. 1 seed Alfredo Perez, dismissing the Coral Gables resident 6-2, 6-2. No. 7 seed Nikola Samardzic was also an upset winner into the semis, defeating No. 4 Alexander Knight of Miami Shores after losing the opening set.

In the Girls' 16 singles, No. 5-seeded Jeannez Daniel of Wesley Chapel spoiled what would have been the Top 4 seeds reaching the semifinals when she upset No. 2-seeded Brittany Lindl of Panama City 6-4, 6-4.

The Top 2 seeds exited the Girls' 14s bracket on Tuesday when No. 7 Madison Harrison of Cortez upset No. 2-seeded Ally Miller-Krasilnikov of Boca Raton 4-6, 6-0, 6-2, and No. 6 seed Rachel Rohrabacher of Tampa topped No. 1 seed Mckenzie Barco of Jacksonville 6-2, 3-6, 6-4.
