Jivkov will join Santa Barbara’s Nico Pollero in the finals, which will be held on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. at the Tennis Club of Santa Barbara.

In the doubles competition, Santa Barbara sent three teams to the final four. The teams of Avery Chernin/Jordan Rodnick and Jack Damen/Mitchell Kuhn will face off against each other, while the team of Logan Liddell/Morgan Hale will take on Dos Pueblos’ team of Patrick Corpuz/Joshua Wang.

Wang had impressive day, playing in both the singles and doubles competitions.
