Complete first-round results

Stanford, Calif. – Georgia Tech’s Guillermo Gomez advanced in the NCAA Men’s Singles Championship Wednesday with a rain-delayed 7-5, 6-4 victory over Washington’s Kyle McMorrow at the Taube Family Tennis Center.

The Tech senior, seeded 14th, improved to 4-3 career in NCAA singles competition, getting out of the first round for the third straight year. Gomez has a 33-7 record this year, including a 12-6 mark against ranked foes. McMorrow is ranked 49th.

He will face Oklahoma’s Costin Poval, seeded 41st, in Thursday’s round of 32, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time. Poval eliminated Ohio State’s Matt Allare, 6-3, 7-5.

“It was a match against a good player,” said Gomez. “I was doing good, but then there was a rain delay for around two hours. The match got complicated, but I am happy I could close it out the way I did.”

Tech’s doubles team of Kevin King and Juan Spir will swing into action Thursday when the first round of the NCAA Doubles Championship gets underway. Ranked 14th in the nation, they will face the Huskies’ 28th-ranked tandem of McMorrow and Jeeven Nedunchezhiyan at 5 p.m. ET.
