The tennis world will remember Emilio Gomez not only for his part in USC's last two NCAA Championship runs, but now also for his resounding upset of the nation's top-ranked player. Gomez drilled No. 1 seed Henrique Cunha of Duke today in the singles Round of 16 at the ITA Men's All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., as he and fellow Trojan junior Ray Sarmiento both advanced to the quarterfinals.

Gomez's big day began with his stunning 6-3, 6-2 defeat of Duke's top-seeded Cuhna. That win launched Gomez into the quarterfinals against another high seed as he faced No. 6 seed Alex Domijan of Virginia.

Sarmiento, meanwhile, bounced back from a tiebreak loss in his first set to roll past Kentucky's Tom Jomby with a 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-4 decision that would put him up against Princeton's Matija Pecotic in the quarters. Petocic had managed a grueling three-set win over USC sophomore Robert Quiroz in the Round of 16 to steal away an all-Trojan quarterfinal matchup. Petocic pulled out a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (11) win over Quiroz for the right to face Sarmiento in tomorrow's quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, USC's doubles run is now done after a tough 9-7 loss taken by No. 6 seeded Quiroz/Sarmiento.
