During the summer, the Florida State men’s tennis team took a short break from their rigorous schedule to relax and check in with Seminoles.com. During this time, we caught up with the returning players and asked them to give us some inside information about their tennis game and the team camaraderie. With every one getting back on campus, this is the time to get to know your `Noles. Here is the final installment.
