USF's Cid advances through Day 2 of individuals

ATHENS, Ga.-- A busy day of tennis was played under beautiful blue skies and a hot sun as the draw held steady in singles and doubles 24 hours after seeing a day of upsets change the complexion of the tournament entirely.

No.2 Marcos Giron, the only remaining top-eight seed in the draw, continued his impressive performance at the championships as he moved past Virginia’s Ryan Shane by a score of 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to maintain his position at the top of the draw. Robert Cid of South Florida, who on Wednesday eliminated top-seeded Clay Johnson, continued his Cinderella run in the tournament with a victory against Drake’s Alen Salibasic 7-6(5), 6-1.

Georgia’s Nathan Pasha continued the home team’s involvement with the draw as he topped Greg Andrew of Notre Dame to clinch an All-American position with his appearance in the Round of 16 on Friday. Pasha secured the victory as he battled back from a tiebreak loss in the first set to win the match 6-7(4), 6-4, 6-3.

Another top seed fell in doubles as the No.1 team of Southern California's Ray Sarmiento and Yannick Hanfmann were upset by the North Florida duo of Jack Findal-Hawkins and Norbert Nemcsek. The Osprey team was able to come through with a straight sets 6-4, 6-1 victory. The No.2 Tennessee pair of Mikelis Libietis and Hunter Reese moved on to become the top seed in the draw.  

The Georgia pair of Hernus Pieters and Ben Wagland were the last off the court as they clinched a 7-6(5), 7-6(0) late on Thursday.

The action continues Friday morning at 10 a.m. ET with the Round of 16 singles and doubles competition.
