Two Cavalier Rookies Advance at National Clay Courts
BALTIMORE, Md. -- A pair of highly touted freshmen on the University of Virginia men's tennis team advanced to the main draw at the ITA National Clay Court tournament at the Suburban Club in Baltimore, Md., today. The freshmen tandem of Brian Vahaly and Huntley Montgomery defeated Olaf Akkesson and Vladimir Pavicevic of South Carolina 2-6, 7-6 (3), 6-2 to advance to the main draw in doubles. The doubles main draw begins tomorrow.
Vahaly drew an automatic bid in the main draw in singles where he will play Enrique Abaroa of Kansas in the first round tomorrow. Abaroa is the ninth seed and is the 18th-ranked player in the nation. Vahaly, who will be playing the first singles match of his college career, is ranked 60th in the nation.
Montgomery wasn't so fortunate in singles. He fell to Aaron Marchetti of Virginia Tech 3-6, 6-2, 7-6 (1) in the second round of qualifying this morning.
Bear Schofield and Justin Smith missed out on being the second Cavalier doubles tandem to advance to the main draw. They fell to Southern Mississippi's Dirk Reinhardt and Andreas Tiltscher 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 today. Schofield was eliminated in yesterday's singles qualifying round by Adam Neal of Oklahoma 7-5, 6-0.
