BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Two days after advancing to the main draw of the 2013 USTA Players’ Choice Open, Mississippi State men’s tennis senior Malte Stropp earned a straight-sets victory Wednesday to advance to the main draw’s round of 16 at the USTA Futures event.

Stropp squared off against incoming Kentucky freshman Trey Yates, who is a top 25 junior in the United States. The MSU senior saw little resistance from Yates, taking a 6-2, 6-1 victory and punching his ticket to the round of 16.

Day two of Stropp’s main draw play, on Thursday, will be a showdown against the tourney’s eighth-seeded Evan King, who is a former three-time ITA All-American at Michigan.
