Robert Farah Looks To Double-Dip In PanAm Gold
Oct. 22, 2011
A back-to-back NCAA champion while at USC, Trojan Robert Farah is now looking to double-dip at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. Playing for his home country of Colombia, Farah has cruised through the singles bracket as well as the doubles draw with fellow Colombian Juan Sebastian Cabal to do double duty today (Oct. 22) with a pair of gold-medal matches.
Farah and Cabal squeezed past Americans Monroe/Ouellette in the semifinals with a 7-6 (4), 7-6 (7) decision yesterday. Farah and Cabal now face countrymen Campozano/Quiroz in the doubles gold-medal match.
On the singles side, Farah lines up against Brazil's No. 4 seeded R. Dutra for gold after the eighth-seeded Trojan took down his Dominican Republic opponent with a smooth 6-4, 6-4 win in the semis. Farah has posted straight-set wins in every one of his singles matches at the Games on the way into this gold-medal challenge.
