MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- - Men's tennis players Marten Tamla and Alex Jago each won two matches Thursday to advance to the main draw singles event at the Wilson/ITA Southeast Regional at The Racquet Club of Memphis.

Tamla downed Alabama's Jordie Kindervater, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4 in his first match, then downed Florida A&M's Frank Green, 6-1, 7-5, to advance to one of the eight qualifying slots. Jago followed suit with a first round win over Tulane's Magdy El-Midawy, 6-0, 6-2, before downing UT-Martin's Danny McGuire, 6-0, 6-2.

Four of the six Tigers entered in Thursday's draw advanced to the second round. Senior Andrew Olswing (Memphis, Tenn./Ridgeway) and freshman Bryan Bankester (Madison, Miss./Central) ended up playing one another in a match following a withdrawal, with Bankester advancing 6-3, 7-6. Bankester then fell to Southern Miss' Reid Bourgeois, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.

Senior Scott Felsenthal (Memphis, Tenn./White Station) had a mixed day. The senior won his opening match, 6-1, 6-4 over Dirk Prinsloo from UT-Martin before falling to Mississippi State's Michele Panzeri, 6-4, 6-2. But while the senior's tournament is done, barring his name being drawn as a lucky loser to filling in a withdrawal from tomorrow's main draw, he did watch younger brother Andrew advance to the main draw for Alabama. The younger Felsenthal won his opening match 6-2, 7-6 over Southeast Louisiana's Olivier Nussbaum, then used a 6-4, 6-1 straight set win over Troy's Robert Van Swelm to advance to the main draw. Van Swelm had advanced to his match against the younger Felsenthal with a 6-4, 5-7, 7-5 thriller over Memphis' Mark Finnegan in the first round.
