FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. - After qualifying for his first Grand Slam event, former NC State men's tennis standout James McGee saw his run come to an end Monday afternoon at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in the 2014 US Open.
Ireland's current top-ranked player, McGee fell in his first-round singles match to Aleksandr Nedovyesov, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (3). Despite the loss, McGee earned $35,754 after qualifying for the tournament.
McGee, who attended NC State from 2006-08, earned his way into the main draw after defeating Ze Zhang, 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, in the third round of the qualifying stage.
A native of Dublin, Ireland, McGee competed as a key member of the Wolfpack's 2007 squad that advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals, before earning All-ACC honors following his sophomore season in 2008.
He is currently coached by former Wolfpack teammate Nick Cavaday.
