NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 19, 2014) - Conner Huertas (Lima, Peru) and Sebastian Yllera (Cinco Saltos, Argentina) took home the consolation singles title at the USTA/ITA Ohio Valley Regional Championships, combining to win eight matches in the back draw flight.

Both Huertas and Yllera were narrowly edged in the opening round of the singles main draw, with each falling in three sets; however, the two Bucs responded, stringing together impressive runs to eventually meet in the consolation finals where the two elected to share the title.

Also in singles play, Diego Nunez (Monterrey, Mexico) and David Biosca (Sant Fruitos de Bage, Spain) each advanced to the third round of the main draw, just one win from earning a spot in the quarterfinals.

Nunez and Rogerio Ribeiro (Sao Paulo, Brazil) teamed up to advance to the quartfinals of the doubles main draw.
