Alexis Galarneau defeated top seed Liam Broady 6-7(5), 7-6(1), 6-3 in three hours and twenty minutes in the quarter-finals of the Winnipeg National Bank Challenger.
The 290th ranked Canadian notched a second victory over the 132nd ranked Brit this season. This win, however, is more significant than the victory back in January. Broady recently reached the 3rd round of Wimbledon as a Wild Card, defeating former top 10 player Diego Schwartzman.
It required the longest match of the tournament for Galarneau to take out the tournament favorite. He is no stranger to long matches though, having also played the second longest match of the tournament in the first round against Ulises Blanch.
