    Oct. 19, 2013

    Doubles champions at the ITA Southwest Regional Championship last year, Trojans Yannick Hanfmann and Eric Johnson have divided and conquered in the singles realm at this year's edition of the tourney. Hanfmann and Johnson both hauled in a pair of singles wins apiece today in Malibu to punch a ticket to tomorrow's quarterfinal rounds. Meanwhile, in the doubles realm, USC has three duos lined up for Round of 16 matches tomorrow.

    After first-round byes in the doubles draw, a trio of Trojan doubles pairs pulled off Round of 32 wins today. Top-seeded Roberto Quiroz and Ray Sarmiento got the morning win in doubles, but Sarmiento had to scratch his singles match due to injury. No. 5 seeded Max de Vroome and Eric Johnson also served up a Round of 32 win today to advance, joining Robbie Bellamy and Jonny Wang, who also earned their place in tomorrow's next round thanks to a solid win today.

    In singles, Quiroz and Michael Grant both notched Round of 32 wins to start the day, but both were bounced in the Round of 16 while teammates Hanfmann and Johnson won out to move along.

    Complete USC results are below.
