Flushing, N.Y. – Kevin King dispatched Vasko Mladenov of St. John’s, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, to win his first-round singles match Thursday at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, while he and Juan Spir also advanced in the doubles draw, 8-4, over Columbia’s Nathaniel Gery and Winston Lin.

King, the 85th-ranked collegiate singles player in the nation, qualified for the 32-player national draw by winning the Southeast Regional championship last weekend. He and Spir are in the doubles draw by virtue of being the nation’s top-ranked doubles team.

King will face either Christopher Aumueller of Nebraska or No. 49 Chris Mengel of Duke in the round of 16 Friday. In doubles, King and Spir will have a quarterfinal match against Billy Federhofer and Nassim Slilam of Florida, who are ranked 36th in the nation.
