I don't feel like creating a thread for every college graduate.
Congrats to Daniel Nguyen on his title @ Irvine futures:

At the $10,000 Irvine California Futures, Daniel Nguyen won his first singles title as a professional, beating top seed Alex Bogdanovic of Great Britain 7-5, 6-2 in today's final. Nguyen, who along with Steve Johnson, won his fourth straight NCAA team title at USC in May, received a special exemption into the draw by making the quarterfinals the previous week. In addition to beating Bogdanovic, Nguyen also defeated No. 5 seed Dennis Novikov in a rematch of their NCAA team semifinal match at No. 3 singles, also won by Nguyen, and No. 2 seed Austin Krajicek.

Also, Ryan Thacher is into the final qualifying round of the 100k Sacramento Challenger. He defeated No.5 seed A. Pavic 64 63. Will play Simmonds next. It would be cool if he can join his fellow Stanford grad, Bradley Klahn, in the maindraw. Good luck.
