Redlicki, Mkrtchian Advance to Quarterfinals at Sherwood
Thousand Oaks, Calif. - UCLA freshman Martin Redlicki and senior Dennis Mkrtchian each posted a pair of singles wins on Friday to advance to the quarterfinals at the Sherwood Collegiate Cup, which is being contested this week at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
Redlicki won both of his matches in straight sets, dispatching of a pair of USC players in Tanner Smith (6-1, 6-4) Rob Bellamy (6-4, 6-4). For his efforts, Redlicki earns a showdown with top-seeded Julian Lenz of Baylor on Saturday.
Mkrtchian needed a pair of three-set wins to reach the quarterfinals but advanced nonetheless. He began his day with a 3-6, 7-6(3), 6-4 win over Baylor's Diego Galeano before downing USC's Nick Crystal, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5. Mkrtchian will take on Baylor's Max Tchoutakian in Saturday's quarterfinals.
