Men's Tennis Competes Well at Pacific Tourney

Nevada’s men’s tennis team had five players reach the quarterfinals in singles play on Saturday at the Pacific Fall Invitational.


Freshman Alex Daruty beat Andre Sion of Saint Mary’s 6-3, 6-4 to win his first-round A Flight match. Daruty then fell in the quarterfinals to second-seeded Pacific Vlad Zdravkovic, 6-2, 6-2.


Nevada had two players reach the quarterfinals of the B Flights as Arzhang Derakhshani and Augustin Myard both both advanced with straight-set wins. Derakhshani beat Adam Fauvre, the No. 3 seed, from Saint Mary’s before falling to Justin Garcia of UC Davis. Myard topped Alp Ozpinar of Saint Mary’s before losing to fourth-seeded Jayce Fitch of UC Davis in a grueling three-set match.


Freshmen Gabe Kanzelmeyer and Antone Bulich also advanced to the quarterfinals in the C Flight. Both eventually fell to top seeds as Bulich lost to No. 1 seeded Daniel Elifant and Kanzelmeyer dropped to No. 2 seeded Torin Chang of USF.


In doubles play, Derakhshani and Myard went 2-1 in the round-robin B Flight draw. Kanzelmeyer and Guerin Smith also went 2-1 in the C Flight. Bulich and Orion Ashmore fell in all three matches of the D Flight.


The tournament has seen some delays because of wet courts and fog.
