Charlottesville Men's Pro Tennis Tour Qualifying - Day One
Two of the eight current or former University of Virginia tennis players attempting to qualify for the Charlottesville Men's Pro Tour event at the Boar's Head Sports Club have advanced to the second round.
Cavaliers freshman Mac Stylinger defeated Drago Dima 0-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4), and former 'Hoo Sanam Singh topped Nicolas Meister 6-4, 6-4.
"I love coming back to Charlottesville," says Singh. "It's one of my favorite places in the world. Back to the Boar's Head, where I played four years. It's so much fun playing here, and hopefully I can keep it going."
Singh will take on Edward Corrie (Great Britain) in the second round of qualifying Sunday at 10 am.
"There's not many places on the tour, where you get so many people to come out and watch your match, when you're out there playing for yourself," says Singh. "It's a great feeling coming back. I feel like I'm at home here, and hopefully I can use that support and move forward."
Stylinger will face Carsten Ball (Australia) Sunday at 10 am.
Current members of the UVA tennis team Jarmere Jenkins, Justin Shane, Ryan Shane, Julen Uriguen, and Harrison Richmond failed to advance past Saturday's first round.
Former Cavalier Michael Shabaz finished as the runner up in the tournament in 2010, but the 2011 UVA grad lost 6-3, 6-3 against Eric Quigley Saturday.
UVA student and Boar's Head employee Brendan Evans will play Devin Britton at 11 am Sunday, after beating Luka Gregorc 6-4, 6-4 Saturday.
2008 Virginia grad Somdev Devvarman has received a bye into the Main Draw, which begins Monday.
