ATHENS, Ga. - Duke freshman Henrique Cunha had his stellar season come to a close with a 6-2, 6-2 loss to Stanford's Bradley Klahn in the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championships on Sunday in Athens, Ga.

The match featured two weather delays mixed in with play between two of the top players in the nation. Cunha, the No. 1 seed in the tournament and No. 2 player in the ITA singles rankings, led 1-0 on serve and had a break chance at 30-40 when the first delay occurred. For the second straight day a match Cunha was involved in was delayed early in the first set as the same happened on Saturday in his doubles contest.

When the match resumed after 30 minutes, Klahn, the No. 13 player in the country, came back to hold serve and would then break Cunha twice on his way to winning the final five games for a 6-2 first set victory.

Klahn carried his momentum to the second set by breaking Cunha twice more to lead 4-1 before another short delay happened. After play resumed Cunha served to bring the score to 5-2 but Klahn closed out the match in the next game to advance to the finals.

Cunha received his first loss since Jan. 31 ending a winning streak of 24 consecutive matches. The 2010 ACC Player of the Year set a school record for singles wins in a single season as he finished 39-6 overall.
