Frazier wins in the desert

Dylan Frazier has consistently appeared on the PPA Tour podium, but much of his success has resulted from men's and mixed doubles. Around this time last year, Frazier earned a bronze finish in singles at the Masters. His only other singles podium finishes came at the 2022 Tournament of Champions and the 2023 Beer City Open. Now, the 22-year-old is starting off his 2024 campaign with some new hardware, as the newly crowned Masters champion.

 

 

Frazier’s path to the title was no easy feat. He overcame multiple formidable opponents, including Tyson McGuffin and 17-year-old Quang Duong, who upset World No. 1 Ben Johns in the round of 16. In the final, Frazier faced Federico Staksrud, whom he had lost to in the semifinals of the 2023 PPA Masters. With the Selkirk Labs Project 002 in hand, Frazier pulled off a thrilling 2-11, 11-7, 11-9 upset over the No. 2 seed. 

In the men's singles PPA top-10, Frazier is the only one who does not come from a high-level tennis background. After clinching the title in Palm Springs, he moves up one spot in the rankings to World No. 8.
