FORT WORTH, Texas (SMU) -SMU senior Gaston Cuadranti advanced to the quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA Texas Regional Championships hosted by TCU after winning two matches on Sunday.

Cuadranti defeated Texas A&M freshman (and No. 2 rated recruit in the nation) Shane Vinsant, 6-3; 6-2, in the first match on Sunday. Vinsant was the top-rated recruit from the state of Texas in the 2012 class. Vinsant had a stellar junior career, including advancing to the finals of the Roland Garros Junior Championships in Paris, France, in doubles in 2011.

Cuadranti followed that performance with a win over the fifth-seed in the tournament, Texas' David Holiner. Holiner is currently ranked No. 99 in the nation in singles. Cuadranti defeated the Longhorns junior 3-6; 6-3; 6-1.

Arturs Kazijevs lost in his first match on Sunday. Kazijevs was defeated by Nick Naumann of Texas, 6-3; 6-2.
