Dougaz Notches Second Professional Title

Tallahassee – Florida State sophomore Aziz Dougaz, coming off an impressive freshman season for the Seminoles, won his second professional title last week at the Futures tournament in Nador, Morocco. He and playing partner Skander Mansouri, the No. 2 seed, beat Alejandro Garcia Saez and Daniel Monedero of Spain 6-3, 6-4 in a final match that lasted just 54 minutes.

That same week, Dougaz reached the first singles final of his career, falling in the championship match against Reda El Amrani of Morocco. In reaching the finals, Dougaz added 10 points to his season total, bumping him to a career-high 708 ranking on the ATP Tour. He is the fourth-ranked college player on the tour.

This week, Dougaz is again playing in Morocco. The seven-seed, he won his opening round match Monday against Simohamed Hirs.
