Case Tennis Center at the University of Tulsa.

Lebedev, ranked No. 104 in the preseason Oracle/ITA singles rankings, defeated No. 9 William Bushamuka of Kentucky after Bushamuka withdrew in the midst of the second set. Lebedev had a one-set lead and was leading in the set.

Lebedev cruised through the first stanza, earning the first break to go up 2-1 and winning out to claim the set. He repeated the process in the second, going up 3-1 before Bushamuka withdrew.

Lebedev will advance to Friday’s Round of 32, where he will face No. 29 JJ Wolf of Ohio State.
