TALLAHASSEE, FL- Four Seminoles will compete in the semifinals of the 2007 ITA Summer Circuit Tournament at Scott Speicher Tennis Center Wednesday morning at 10:15.
Number one seed Chris Cloer (Brevard, NC) will square off against four seed and Tallahassee native Andrew Bailey in one semifinal while unseeded Jason Hood (Columbia, SC) will face the winner of the match between three seed Bobby Deye (Naples, FL) and unseeded Boca Raton native Michael O’Shea in the other semifinal match.
Cloer defeated Doug Kenny 6-0, 6-3 and Bailey ousted Michael Moore 6-2, 6-3 to put the two Seminoles head to head Wednesday. While the two are teammates, it does not change the competitive atmosphere of the match.
“We both know we’re out there just going out having fun and Drew’s a funny guy,” said Cloer. “It’ll be competitive, but it’ll be fun.”
“I play with him year round now, so sometimes it seems routine, but in a tournament it’s a little different,” stated Bailey. “It’ll be intense I think.”
Hood earned his spot in the semifinals by upsetting teammate and two seed Bradley Mixson (Miami, FL).
Earlier in the day all six Seminole participants advanced to the quarterfinals. At that point the teammates were a combined 12-0 in singles competition for the tournament.
Florida State has also dominated the doubles portion of the draw. In Tuesday’s doubles semifinals, Cloer and Hood advanced to the finals.
