PARIS — Former Virginia men’s tennis players Treat Huey (Class of 2008) and Dominic Inglot (Class of 2009) have advanced to the doubles round of 16 of Roland Garros. The duo, which were one of the last doubles teams to get into the main draw, have won a pair of matches during the first week of the tournament.
On Friday, Huey and Inglot upset No. 5 seed Robert Lindsetdt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania, 6-3, 6-4, in the second round. In the first round on Tuesday, they defeated Americans Michael Russell and Donald Young 7-5, 6-2 in the first round. In the round of 16 they will meet either No. 10 seeds Aisam-Ul-Hag Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer or the team of Bjorn Phau and Adil Shamasdin.
It is the second career Grand Slam round of 16 for both Huey and Inglot. In 2010, Inglot reached the round of 16 of Wimbledon with fellow Brit Chris Eaton. Last year Huey reached the round of 16 of the US Open with fellow Cavalier alumnus Somdev Devvarman.
By reaching the round of 16, both players are expected to have new career high ATP doubles rankings following the tournament.
