TCU Horned Frog sophomore Jacopo Tezza won his fifth-straight match at the Icy Hot/ITA All-American Championships Tuesday at the Champions Club in Chattanooga, Tenn. The sophomore from Verona, Italy, downed Wisconsin's Alex Kasarov in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, in the round of 64 to advance. Next up for Tezza is 69th-ranked Thomas Schoeck of Boise State tomorrow at 8 a.m. CDT. The winner will earn the right to compete in the main draw of the event, which begins Oct. 9.
