USF Senior Writer

TAMPA - Everth Dzib played his way into the main draw of the USTA/ITA Regional Championships on Thursday in Tallahassee.

"He has been working really hard this past month and it has paid off. This tournament is great for his confidence to get some wins over quality players," head coach Matt Hill.
