FSU Men’s Tennis Wins Seminole Team Tournament

Jan. 25, 2003


Tallahassee, Fla.- The Florida State men’s tennis team won seven singles matches and five-of-six doubles matches to win the Seminole Team Tournament on Saturday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. FSU defeated Florida A&M 4-0 and Alabama-Brimingham 5-0 to win the tournament.


Rodrigo Laub and newcomer Heiner Tadault both won two matches on the afternoon to pace the Seminoles. Tadault beat Florida A&M’s Davin Russell (6-4, 6-4) and Ruben Zrihan (6-3, 6-0) of Alabama-Birmingham.


Romain Jurd and Mat Cloer split action at the number one positon for Florida State. Cloer defeated Patrick Suhrbrier of Alabama-Birmingham, 7-5, 6-4 and Jurd didn’t have to complete his match since the Seminoles had already claimed the team victory.


FSU’s doubles teams continue to shine as they won five-of-six matches to win both doubles points on the afternoon.


The Seminoles will travel next to Notre Dame (Jan. 31) and Michigan (Feb 2) before returning home to take on the Florida Gators on Sunday, February 9 at 1:00 p.m.
