Bowles Falls In Finals

Oct. 25, 2010

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Clint Bowles’s, a member of the Florida State men’s tennis team, run in the USTA/ITA Southeast Regional Championships ended on Monday in the final singles match. This was the second time the senior reached the final match of the tournament.

Bowles, a native of Tampa, faced off against Will Spencer of Georgia. In the first set, Bowles was down 3-1 but came back to make the set four-all. The crucial game was about fifteen minutes and went back and forth with each opponent having a lot of break and game points. Eventually Bowles got broken by Spencer 5-4. Spencer would go on to win the match 6-4, 6-2.

“I thought it was a very competitive match, very tight,” said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. “Clint made a nice run in the tournament but went down to start the match. Will Spencer played really well, very consistent, and didn’t make very many errors. I thought Clint played a good match, I think he played a little bit better yesterday but he played good tennis. The match was very good and well played on both sides.”
