SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Stanford University juniors Ryan Haviland (Sumter, SC/Sumter HS) and Scott Lipsky (Merrick, NY/Bellmore-Kennedy HS) advanced to the singles quarterfinals of the Omni Hotels Northern California Regional Championships on Saturday at Santa Clara University.
Lipsky, who was also a quarterfinalist in this event last year, advanced with a pair of straight set wins. The fifth-seeded Lipsky beat Federico Mattioli of Santa Clara 7-5, 6-2 in the third round and Dean Wallace of California 6-1, 6-2 in the fourth round. He will next face unseeded Alex Krohn of Fresno State in Sunday morning's quarterfinals.
The fourth-seeded Haviland posted a convincing 6-2, 6-4 third round win over Pablo Pires de Almeida of San Francisco in the third round before being stretched to three sets in the round of 16. Haviland then outlasted Pete Scharler of Washington 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-0 to set up a Sunday quarterfinal match against 17th-seeded Peter Malacek of Portland.
Haviland also advanced to the doubles quarterfinals with freshman partner Phil Sheng (Thousand Oaks, CA/Thousand Oaks HS). The fourth-seeded Haviland and Sheng posted an 8-4 third round win over Portland's Ty Garrison and Nick Tostenrude in their only match of the day. The pair will meet Daniel Scafidi and J.J. Whitlinger of Saint Mary's in Sunday afternoon's quarterfinals. Whitlinger is the son of Stanford associate head coach John Whitlinger.
The singles and doubles champions from this event, which is administered by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), will earn spots in the November 8-11 Omni Hotels National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships at Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas.
