Vegas tailspin continues with loss to Orlando

   The Vegas Rollers' playoff hopes are fading fast.
   Vegas – with ex-Stanford All-Americans Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan and San Francisco native Sam Querrey – lost to the Orlando Storm 22-16 today in a World TeamTennis match at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.V. It was the Rollers' fourth loss in five matches and fifth in seven.
   Vegas fell to 4-6, sixth in the nine-team league. The Rollers must win at least three of their remaining four matches to have a chance of qualifying for the four-team playoffs, Aug. 1-2 at The Greenbrier.
   Today's match was tied 12-12 at intermission, but Orlando (5-4) won the last two sets by a combined score of 10-4 to even the season series against Vegas at 1-1.
   The Rollers will face the New York Empire (4-4), featuring International Tennis Hall of Famer Kim Clijsters, on Friday at 8 a.m. PDT (ESPN+).
   Men's singles – Tennys Sandgren (Orl.) def. Sam Querrey (LV) 5-3.
   Women's singles – Jessica Pegula (Orl.) def. Ajla Tomljanovic 5-4.
   Mixed doubles – Mike Bryan and Monica Puig (LV) def. Ken Skupski and Pegula 5-2.
   Women's doubles – Darija Jurak and Pegula (Orl.) def. Puig and Tomljanovic 5-1.
   Men's doubles – Sandgren and Skupski (Orl.) def. Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan 5-3.
