Two Bruins into Round of 16 at Wilson/ITA West Regionals

Oct. 19, 2006

Malibu, Calif. - Led by top-seeded Benjamin Kohlloeffel, six UCLA men's tennis players won opening-round singles matches Thursday at the Wilson/ITA West Regional Championships hosted by Pepperdine University.

Kohlloeffel, the defending champion at this event, actually won both his singles matches Thursday to advance to the round of 16. He started the day with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over SDSU's Robert Sabo. He later followed that up with a 6-3, 6-0 decision over UCSB's Philip Therp. Kohlloeffel will meet USD's Thomas Liversage on Friday.

Sophomore Haythem Abid also posted a pair of wins to join Kohlloeffel in Friday's round of 16. Senior Chris Surapol and junior Mathieu Dehaine were playing late second-round matches.

Dropping second-round singles matches Thursday were sophomore Michael Look and junior Jeremy Drean. Sophomore Andew Eklov lost in the first round to UCI's Shimpei Suzuki, 7-6, 6-4.

The Bruins also have two doubles teams still alive in the tournament, as the duos of Kohlloeffel/Surapol and Dehaine/Drean will be competing in Friday's round of 16.
