New Zealand Davis Cup player Dan King-Turner has recorded one of the best results of his career, beating former world No 15 Robby Ginepri at the US$50,000 Binghampton Challenger in New York.
King-Turner lost the first set to the 2005 US Open semi-finalist but some strong serving in the second and third sets gave him a 6-7 6-4 6-4 win in just over two hours.
The current New Zealand No 3 had 20 aces for the match and broke his opponent's serve twice, while Ginepri could not convert any of his four break points.
King-Turner will now face American Rhyme Williams in the quarter-finals.
He has also teamed up with Gleb Sakharov of France in the doubles and they will play Brit Jamie Baker and American Christian Harrison in the first round.
