Looking to build on his performance as NCAA runner-up a year ago, UNC sophomore William Blumberg moved one step closer to his goal on Thursday morning in Winston-Salem–knocking off Tennessee Tech’s Eduardo Mena 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 to advance to the NCAA Men’s Singles Tournament Round of 16.

It was Blumberg’s first three-set match of the young tournament, after he defeated San Diego’s August Holmgren in straight sets during Wednesday’s NCAA First Round action.

The No. 2 overall seed for the entire tournament, Blumberg–also the last remaining Tar Heel left standing–will now move on to face Cameron Klinger from Vanderbilt on Friday.
