Princeton senior Matija Pecotic kept his outstanding fall campaign going Friday, winning a singles match and two doubles matches to advance to the quarterfinals in both draws at the Texas Fall Invitational.

Pecotic is the No. 2 seed in an "A" singles draw with nine players who were in the ITA's preseason top 125. Pecotic defeated J.T. Sundling of TCU in straight sets to advance to the draw's quarterfinals, where he'll face a fellow ITA-ranked foe in Oklahoma's Peerakit Siributwong. Pecotic was 67th on the preseason list, Siributwong was 97th.

In doubles, Pecotic and Zack McCourt won twice, 9-7 over Ben Chen and Nick Naumann of Texas and 8-4 over Nick Papac and John Harrison Warden of Oklahoma, to advance to the quarterfinals. Unseeded, Pecotic and McCourt will face top-seeded Costin Paval and Dane Webb of Oklahoma, who were the top-seeded pair in the nation in the ITA's preseason rankings.

Princeton's results from the first of three days at the Texas event are below, and complete draws are available here.
