TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –The No. 12 duo of senior Vahid Mirzadeh (Wellington, Fla.) and sophomore Connor Smith (Tampa, Fla.) accepted a wild card entry to the 2011 USTA Tallahassee Tennis Challenger doubles main draw. The doubles team will compete Monday, not before 6pm, at the Forestmeadows Tennis Complex.
“It will be a great experience and opportunity for me and Connor to play against some good doubles teams out there,” said Mirzadeh. “We are really excited and thankful for the Wild Card they gave us to get into the Main Draw of the tournament.”
Mirzadeh and Smith will face Go Soeda of Japan and James Ward of Great Britain tonight. Mirzadeh is no stranger to the tournament as he and Maciek Sykut teamed up two years ago to upset the No. 2 seeded team in the tournament.
