Oct. 13, 2013

ATLANTA-----Georgia senior Garrett Brasseaux and junior Nathan Pasha each won a pair of matches Sunday to advance to the quarterfinals of the ITA Southeast Regional Championships at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex.

Brasseaux won his first match against South Florida's Oliver Pramming, 6-3, 6-1, then earned a win against Florida's No. 52 Florent Diep, 6-2, 7-6(8), in the round of 16. Pasha, ranked 32nd and seeded second, beat South Florida's Vadym Kalyuzhnyy, 6-3, 6-0, then clinched a spot in the quarterfinals with a 7-6(4), 6-4 win over North Florida's Norbert Nemscek. 

Brasseaux and Pasha will face Florida's Elliott Orkin and Florida Gulf Coast's Jordi Vives, respectively, on Monday. The semifinals will be played later in the day. The singles and doubles winners of the ITA Regionals will earn bids to the National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships in New York Nov. 7-10. Sophomore Austin Smith has already earned a singles berth.

"We had a productive day," said head coach Manuel Diaz. "Our guys battled hard. We have two quarterfinalists and they both had great days. It was also good too see Eric and Hernus win two matches in the back draw. It was a good day for us."

In the consolation draw, Hernus Pieters and Eric Diaz also won two matches apiece in straight sets. In the main draw, Georgia's No. 1 seed Ben Wagland fell to South Florida's Sasha Gozun, 7-5, 6-3.



A Georgia player has won the ITA Regional singles title 10 times, most recently Wil Spencer in 2010.
