ON TOUR: Williams, Sandgren in Final Qualifying Round

Former Vols Rhyne Williams and Tennys Sandgren both won again in routine straight sets Monday to reach the final qualifying round at the Sunrise (Fla.) Futures.

Williams defeated American Jared Hiltzik 6-4, 6-1 in his third-round match, while Sandgren beat Czech Republic's Libor Salaba 6-3, 6-3.

Williams' final qualifying round match has the potential to one of the best matchups of the entire tournament as the two-time All-American is set to play Virginia sophomore Alex Domijan. Williams and Domijan last met in the 2010 USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships. With Domijan the top seed and unbeaten in his college career, Williams excelled in the critical moments and won 7-6, 7-6 in their only college clash.

Sandgren plays former Florida Gator Antoine Benneteau in his final match. Benneteau beat Sandgren last week at the Plantation (Fla.) Futures.
