TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Three Seminoles competed in the U.S. Open National Playoffs Florida Sectional Qualifying Tournament on Friday at the Indoor Tennis Facility. Florida State is hosting the event which runs through Sunday.
The winner of each Sectional Qualifying Tournament in each division will advance to the U.S. Open National Playoffs Championship. Winners of those Championships will receive a wild card entry in the 2014 U.S. Open in August.
