Austin rallies in last set to beat Dream

   For the second straight match, Tennys Sandgren played the decisive last set.
   This time, he lost.
   Teymuraz Gabashvili defeated Sandgren 5-3 in men's singles, lifting the Austin Aces to a 20-19 victory over the California Dream on Thursday night in Austin, Texas.
   On Tuesday night, Sandgren beat Robby Ginepri  5-3 to give host California a 22-20 win over the Philadelphia Freedoms.
   Gabashvili, a 30-year-old Georgia native who plays for Russia, is far more accomplished than Sandgren, a 23-year-old Wesley Chapel, Fla., resident.
   Gabashvili is ranked No. 52 to Sandgren's No. 266. Also, Gabashvili recently reached the fourth round of the French Open for the second time. Sandgren has never played in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament.
   Austin's Nicole Gibbs, a 22-year-old World TeamTennis rookie from Stanford, lost both of her sets.
   The Dream (2-2) and Aces (3-0) will meet again tonight at 7:30 at Dream Stadium at Sunrise Mall in the Sacramento suburb of Citrus Heights.
