FORT WORTH, Texas – The TCU men’s tennis team was in action all over the country in collegiate and pro circuit events this past week as three Horned Frogs were in the main draw of doubles or singles at the Las Vegas Open, an ATP Challenger $50K event.

Four current TCU student-athletes also made their way to College Station, Texas for the 2017 ITA Texas Regional Championships presented by Oracle with Alastair Gray continuing his debut season with a run to the quarterfinals in singles and doubles. Gray cruised through the first three rounds in straight sets before ultimately falling to No. 40 Johannes Schretter of Baylor in the quarterfinals. Reese Stalder also had a good run as he advanced to the Round of 16 at regionals for the first time in his career and was up a set on No. 68 Jimmy Bendeck of Baylor but could not hold on as he lost in three sets.

Three current and past Horned Frogs were also in action at the 2017 Las Vegas Open, a $50K ATP Challenger event, this past week. Alex Rybakov and Trevor Johnson started in qualifying with Rybakov making it to the final round before falling to former Florida State player Benjamin Lock in a tight three-set battle. Rybakov was able to snag the Lucky Loser spot in the main draw as he joined recently turned Frog pro Cameron Norrie. Rybakov lost in the opening round to Liam Broady of Great Britain while Norrie, who was on an 11-match winning streak, made it to the Round of 16 before falling to Broady to end his run. Johnson, who made a run to a doubles final with fellow American Patrick Kawka last month, earned a wildcard into the main draw of doubles where he made an appearance in the quarterfinals.
