FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. - The doubles team of Virginia alumni Treat Huey (Class of 2008) and Dom Inglot (Class of 2009) advanced to the second round of the US Open doubles draw with a first round victory Wednesday. Huey and Inglot topped American stars James Blake and Sam Querrey 6-1, 7-6(7) in the opening round.
