Cid back in NCAA quarterfinals

For the second time in three years, USF senior Roberto Cid finds himself three wins shy of a national title.

The second seed overall, Cid rallied from an early hole for a 6-4, 6-3 triumph against San Diego's Uros Petronijevic in Friday's Round of 16 at the NCAA men's singles championships at the University of Tulsa.

He'll face UCLA's Mackenzie McDonald in Saturday's quarterfinals. Cid's teammate, senior Dominic Cotrone, lost to TCU's Cameron Norrie in three sets Friday.

A quarterfinals qualifier in 2014, Cid trailed 3-0 in Friday's first set before storming back with a couple of service breaks. He took a 4-3 lead in the second set before breaking Petronijevic's serve in the eighth game, then serving out to win the match.
