State tennis: Several Pinellas players still standing

Local players fared quite well at Monday's first day of the Class 4A state tennis tournament at Sanlando Park in Altamonte Springs.

St. Petersburg junior Edward Corty will play in the individual singles final this morning against Lake Brantley's Rushi Amin after winning both of his matches.

Corty opened the tournament with a 6-3, 6-3 victory and advanced to the final after rallying to defeat Flanagan's Andrew Vargas 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the semifinals.

Seminole's Julia Sikorski is also still alive after winning both of her matches in individual singles.

Sikorski, a freshman, dismantled Alexis Aranda of Lake Mary 6-1, 6-0 in her final match of the day to remain a contender for the overall singles championship.

St. Petersburg's Emily Dvorak and Agatha Ambrozy earned a No. 3 seed in the individual doubles tournament and will play their first match today. They received a bye into the semifinals.

The Green Devils' doubles team of Corty and Robert Perry is out of the tournament after falling in a third set tiebreaker 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) to Lake Brantley's Amin and Justen Louis.
