    Seattle, Wash. - The sixth-seeded UCLA men's tennis team advanced to the quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA National Team Indoors on Friday, registering a 4-1 opening-round victory over No. 11 Louisville at the Seattle Tennis Club. Next up for the Bruins (8-0) is third-seeded Tennessee (7-0) on Saturday at the Nordstrom Tennis Center beginning at 9:00 a.m. The Volunteers were 4-2 winners over No. 14 Georgia on Friday.

    UCLA had a great start to Friday's match, claiming wins at court Nos. 2 and 3 to take the one point awarded for doubles play. After both teams split the first two matches to finish, the point came down to court No. 2, where UCLA's Adrien Puget and Holden Seguso posted an 8-1 upset over 50th-ranked Andrew Carter and Simon Childs.

    Puget then gave UCLA a 2-0 advantage not long after singles began, as he was a 6-0, 6-3 winner over Carter at court No. 5. The Bruins' lead then jumped to 3-0 after Amit Inbar dispatched of Viktor Maksimcuk, 6-3, 6-3 at court No. 2.

    Just when it looked like UCLA was going to run away with it, the Cardinals (8-2) managed to get on the board when 11th-ranked Austen Childs notched a 6-3, 6-2 win over No. 63 Daniel Kosakowski at court No. 1.

    Needing to win just one of the final three matches to pull out the win, UCLA got what it needed at court No. 4, where Seguso downed Alejandro Calligari, 6-3, 6-2 to clinch the victory for the Bruins. Seguso's win was key for UCLA, which was trailing at court Nos. 3 and 6 when play was suspended.
