Today’s quarter-final at the U.S. Open brings back memories for Bay Area tennis fans: the match pits Ben Shelton against Frances Tiafoe, a favorite at the Tiburon Challenger, and Shelton, who played his first professional match in July 2022 and was the second-place finisher in Tiburon on Oct. 9, 2022, his 20th birthday.

Shelton and Tiburon Challenger winner Zach Svajda delivered excitement and the unexpected in 2022, as they consistently eliminated older, seeded players from competition, advancing to the finals and putting the talent of a new generation on display.

Now in its sixteenth year, the Tiburon Challenger is a proving ground for rising stars in men’s tennis. Among the past champions who have moved on to higher-profile tennis events are Tommy Paul, Michael Moe and Cameron Norrie, also competitors in this year’s U.S. Open.

Tiburon Challenger 2023 takes place from Sun., Oct. 1, to Sun., Oct 8, and we hope you’ll join us.

Looking back at 2022

Zach Svajda started as an unseeded player and went on to win the Tiburon Challenger in 2022. Now he's back in 2023, trying for a repeat. And this time, we'll see two Svajdas on the courts. Zach's younger brother Trevor is a first-timer at the Tiburon Challenger.
