FLUSHING, N.Y. – The Florida State men’s tennis team’s incredible fall run ended on Saturday in the semifinals of the USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Junior Benjamin Lock and sophomore Marco Nunez faced off against Columbia’s Ashok Narayana and Max Schnur in the semifinals Saturday morning. Columbia came up with a late break to win the first set 6-4. In the second set, the Lions got two early breaks to take a lead. The Seminoles were able to break back once but failed to do so again to lose the match 6-4, 6-4.
“It was a well-played match with Columbia playing real well,” said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. “The difference in the match was converting the big points with them breaking us three times. The difference was only a couple of points. We’ve had a great fall and have played outstanding doubles. We just need to build on that for the spring.”
Entering the tournament with a 9-1 record, the duo finish the fall 12-2.
The Seminoles return to the courts in January. Check back to Seminoles.com for all your information on the men’s tennis team and follow the team at twitter.com/fsu_mtennis.
