Sept. 24, 2005
CHARLOTTEVILLE, Va. - Junior Michael Jetter is still in the thick of things at the UVA Fall Invitational following Saturday's play. Jetter advanced to the semis of his consolation singles bracket with a come-from-behind, 4-6, 6-3, 11-9 win over North Carolina State's Mason Schermerhorn, Saturday.
Jetter is the lone Tiger still in the singles semis, as James Spence dropped a tough 5-7, 6-2, 10-7 loss to Kentucky's Bruno Agnostinelli, while freshman Matt Brewer was down a set 6-2 to Western Michigan's Brady Crosby when he had to retire from the A1 consolation bracket.
Memphis went 0-3 in the B2 back bracket, as Bryan Bankester fell to Maryland's Andraes Vaage-Nilson in a 5-7, 6-1, 10-0 loss. Garrison Pilant also suffered a setback in B2 singles, falling 6-3, 6-4 to Harvard's Michael Kalfayan. Alex Jago also suffered a straight set loss, 6-3, 6-3, to American's Jeffney Schnell.
In doubles, the two sets of Tigers were elminated from the Sunday competition as Spence and Jago could not upset the No. 3 seeded team of Devvarman and Huey from Virginia in an 8-1 loss. The duo then fell in the back bracket, 8-6, to Orozco and Crosby from Western Michigan. Brewer and Bankester also dropped their doubles match, 8-3, to Rozek and Iriarten from N.C. State.
The lone duo still in contention for a title in doubles is the team of Jetter and Pilant who fell to Bradshaw and Felsenthal, 9-8, but came back and received a default in the consolation draw to advance to a Sunday semifinal. They will play Schermerhorn and Noblitt from NC State, Sunday.
