“I’ve been training hard these last couple days, and I will continue to do so in the upcoming weeks,” Benjamin said earlier this month. “My goal is to win a couple rounds. The dream would be to win it all, but you’ve got to make some small goals. I think these first couple rounds will be very winnable. I have to stay focused, prepare very well and let my tennis do the talking.”
Benjamin or Schmitz will play Georgia Tech’s Carlos Divar, who ranks 55th, or Memphis’ Ryan Peniston, who ranks 36th.
