Mocs Advance at USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regional

The Chattanooga Mocs had a solid opening day at the USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regionals in Knoxville, Tenn.  Both doubles teams advanced to the second round and three Mocs are in the second round of singles action. 

Sophomore’s John Peacey (Emerald, Australia) and Luke Saunders (Halifax, Nova Scotia) opened with an 8-7 win over Dayton’s Andy Druffel and Drew Hanley in the first round.  Senior Jorge Varon (Valencia, Venezuela) and junior Pavels Grigorjevs (Riga, Latvia) matched that with an 8-6 victory over Adam Krull and Micahel Moe of Xavier. 

Both doubles teams dropped their second round matches.  Varon and Grigorjevs pushed ETSU’s No. 5 seeded Diego Nunez and Rogerio Ribeiro before falling 8-7. 

Grigorjevs is seeded 17th in the singles draw and received a first round bye.  He faces David O’Hare of Memphis in Saturday’s second round. 

Saunders scored a three-set win over Eastern Kentucky’s Floria Graskamp (6-4, 1-6, 6-1) in his first round match.  He meets Kentucky’s Alejandro Gomez in the second round. 

Varon defeated EKU’s Alex Alvaro (6-4, 6-4) in the first round.  He advances to take on Tennessee’s Sean Karl in the second round.
