Texas freshman Breaunna Addison and the doubles pair of senior Chris Camillone and junior David Holiner continued their march to an 2013 NCAA tennis individual national title on Saturday with wins in the quarterfinal round at Atkins Indoor Tennis Center in Urbana, Ill.

The 31st-ranked Addison defeated Suarez-Malaguti by a 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 count to set up an NCAA Championship singles semifinal meeting on Sunday against Stanford’s Nicole Gibbs, the defending NCAA singles champion. The first-semester freshman from Boca Raton, Fla., becomes the third Longhorn to reach the NCAA singles semifinals and the first to get there since Kelly Pace in 1995. The win was Addison’s second of the tournament over a seeded opponent.

Camillone and Holiner continued to defy odds and expectations at the NCAA Doubles Championship on Saturday, teaming up to defeat their second top-10 opponent in two days to advance to the national semifinals.

The unseeded Camillone and Holiner defeated No. 5 seed Hernus Pieters and Ben Wagland of Georgia in a three-set tiebreaker (3-6, 6-4, 7-6[3]).

Camillone and Holiner advance to face No. 3 seed Jonas Lutjen and Nik Scholtz of Ole Miss on Sunday at 3 p.m. CT in the semifinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship.

The Texas natives become the first Longhorn duo to advance to the semifinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship since 1995, when Chad Clark and Trey Phillips finished as the national runner-up. Texas, seeking its sixth doubles national title, is 4-0 in four trips to the semifinals since 1975.

Sophomore Søren Hess-Olesen concluded his postseason run in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Singles Championship after a loss to No. 3 seed Jarmere Jenkins of Virginia, 6-3, 6-2.
