GW Men's Tennis Continues Run at ITA All-American Championships
Zelenkov Advances in Singles, Moves Through Doubles With Dias
Oct. 1, 2013
TULSA, Okla. – George Washington men’s tennis sophomore Danil Zelenkov won his second singles match in as many days to advance through the qualifying singles draw at the ITA All-American Championships on Tuesday. Additionally, Zelenkov and junior Francisco Dias won their doubles match to advance to Round 3 of the qualifying doubles bracket.
The nine-day event at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center at the University of Tulsa is comprised of three rounds of competition - pre-qualifying, qualifying and the main draw.
Dias and Zelenkov first teamed up for qualifying doubles to open Tuesday’s action. The pair earned an 8-2 decision over Brady Bohrnstedt and Sebastian Sachs of Oklahoma State to advance to Round 3 and will face UTSA's Diogo Casa and Yannick Junger at 9 a.m. CT (10 a.m. ET) on Wednesday.
Zelenkov went on to upset Gonzaga’s Alvaro Nazal, who owns a No. 99 national singles ranking, with a 6-4, 6-4 victory to advance to the third round of the qualifying singles draw. He will face No. 73 Arturs Kazijevs of SMU at approximately 12:30 p.m. CT (1:30 p.m. ET) on Wednesday with hopes of reaching Thursday’s main draw.
In his qualifying consolation match, Dias earned a three-set victory over Chip Cox of South Carolina. After dropping the first set, 3-6, and going down 3-5 in the second, Dias fought back to clinch the match with second and third set scores of 7-6 (4), 6-3.
Singles quarterfinalists, doubles finalists and consolation champions will receive automatic bids to the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships from Nov. 7 – 10 in Flushing, N.Y.
