   After jumping out to a big lead, the Vegas Rollers held on to beat the two-time defending champion Springfield (Mo.) Lasers 20-18 in extended play today in a World TeamTennis match at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.V.
   Sam Querrey, a 32-year-old San Francisco native, drubbed Mitchell Krueger 5-1 to give Vegas (3-2) a 14-8 cushion at intermission. But Springfield (1-3) won women's singles and mixed doubles by a combined score of 10-5 to trail 19-18 and send the match to extended play.
   The Rollers' Mike Bryan, a Stanford All-American in 1997 and 1998, and Monica Puig, the gold medalist in women's singles in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, then held serve for the victory.
   Vegas will play the San Diego Aviators (1-3) for the second time this season on Saturday at 6 a.m. PDT (Facebook Watch and CBS Sports Digital) at The Greenbrier. The Rollers beat the Aviators 23-21 (2-0 extended play) on Tuesday.
