Casas went 2-0 in both singles and doubles play in key PBC matches last week. The sophomore from Madrid, Spain, swept Young Harris’ Daniel Tiboldi 6-0, 6-2 and then knocked off #35 David Korsten of Lander 6-4, 6-7 (1), 6-1. That win was key in the 5-4 victory for the Pirates over the fifth-ranked Bearcats and one of the two points he contributed in that match. Casas and partner Jan Porteset beat the Lander team of Marc Hofer and Omar El-Moslemany 8-1. Casas and Porteset also beat the YHC team of Pavel and Quevedo 8-4. Casas is now 11-3 in singles play with two wins over nationally-ranked opponents.
