5/28 – 6:07pm – Smith & Sandgren just closed out the 2nd set and take their match 4 & 6.  TN now has teams in both the men’s & women’s quarters, which will be played tomorrow, as Whoriskey and Pluskota won their match today in straight sets.  However, Whoriskey did lose in her singles match as did Rhyne Williams which eliminates the TN players from the singles draw.
