CHARLOTTESVILLE — Alumni of the Virginia men’s tennis program had a successful week on the professional tennis circuit last week. Dominic Inglot (Class of 2009) and Michael Shabaz (Class of 2011) each won tournament titles, while Treat Huey (class of 2008) helped the Philippines advance in Davis Cup play.

Inglot teamed with fellow Brit Chris Eaton to win the doubles title at the Challenger of Dallas. It was Inglot’s fourth career doubles title on the Challenger Tour. He moved up nearly 100 places in this week’s ATP doubles rankings to No. 207.

Shabaz won the singles title at the Futures Event in Guatemala for his first professional title. He defeated three top-500 opponents en route to the championship. He also reached the doubles final at the event.

Huey led the Philippines to a 5-0 victory over Pacific Oceania in the first round of Asia/Oceania Group II. He defeated Michael Leong in straight sets on the first day of singles. Huey, who remains a career-high No. 47 in the ATP doubles rankings, will compete this week in the SAP Open in San Jose, Calif., an ATP 250 Tournament.
