Former Husky All-American Alex Slovic has advanced to the quarterfinals of the World University Games men's tennis tourney currently being contested in Belgrade, Serbia. Slovic is the fourth seed in the draw and represents the host nation as he hails from Pancevo, just 15 kilometers outside of Belgrade.
Slovic, who is the all-time winningest Husky with 184 combined singles and doubles wins, will face the No. 7-seed, Jiri Skoloudik of the Czech Republic in the quarters.
Slovic has not dropped a set so far in three wins. In the third round he bageled Mori Valter of Brazil, 6-0, 6-0, and yesterday defeated Australia's Jon Smith, 6-4, 6-2. In his first match he had to face former Husky teammate Klaus Jank of Germany. The two played together in 2006 when UW last made the NCAA Round of 16. Slovic scored the 6-4, 6-4 win.
Also still competing is current Husky junior-to-be Vanja Radunovic. The native of Montenegro is in the quarterfinals of the consolation singles draw. Radunovic dominated her first consolation match, 6-0, 6-0, then moved into the quarters via a walkover.
