Menlo School's tandem of seniors Gunther Matta and Vikram Chari advanced to the semifinals of the Central Coast Section Tennis Individual Tournament in doubles with two straight-set victories on Tuesday at Imperial Courts in Aptos. The top-seeded duo opened with a 6-0, 6-4 victory before rolling to a 6-1, 6-1 triumph over Ryan Harlan and Will Tierney of Santa Cruz in the quarterfinals. Matta and Chari helped Menlo win a seventh straight CCS team title last Friday and will lead the Knights into the CIF NorCal playoffs on Friday at the Gold River Racquet Club near Sacramento.
