ATLANTA — Georgia Tech junior tennis player Roger Anderson advanced to the consolation quarterfinals of the Omni Hotels National Indoor Championships before being ousted from the event on Friday afternoon. The four-day tournament is one of the three major events on the collegiate tennis circuit and is being hosted by SMU at the Brookhaven Country Club outside Dallas, Texas.
After dropping his first-round match on Thursday afternoon, Anderson bounced back on Friday morning and advanced in the consolation draw with a straight-set win over Indiana State’s Loure Brajkovic. The Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, native won the first set rather easily by a 6-3 score and then continued to assume control in the match, winning the second set by a 6-4 score.
Anderson then advanced to the quarterfinals of the consolation bracket, but could not reach the semis, as he dropped a straight-set decision to Mario Toledo of Tennessee. Toledo took control of the match early, claiming a 6-2 win in the first set, and then held on for a 6-4 win in the second.
The loss ended a successful fall tournament schedule for the Yellow Jackets and Tech will be off until it returns to action on January 18-20 at the ACC Indoor Championships in Winston-Salem, N.C. Full information on the Omni Hotels National Indoor Championships is available at www.itatennis.com.
