Tallahassee Futures presented by Visit Tallahassee Begins Saturday

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-  Florida State men’s tennis is set to host the Tallahassee Futures Tournament presented by Visit Tallahassee, part of the USTA Pro Circuit Collegiate Series, starting this Saturday, December 3 and ending on Sunday, December 11.

“It is an unbelievable honor to be able to be a part of the USTA Collegiate Series,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Our guys will be able to get great experience against several (highly-ranked) players in the world.”

As the last Futures tournament located in the United States in 2016, the Tallahassee Futures will host one of the strongest fields of any Futures-level event this year.

With the Tallahassee Challenger taking place for 17 consecutive seasons, the Tallahassee Futures is the second professional event in Tallahassee, giving fans another great opportunity to see some of the top young talent in the tennis world compete locally in Tallahassee.

Included in the field are as many as eight current and former Seminoles, including former players Anderson Reed and Benjamin Lock, who has already risen to an ATP ranking of 577 in his short time since graduation. The field will feature seven players with an ATP ranking in the top 500, a phenomenal number for a Futures tournament.

The 64-player qualifying draw will begin on Saturday, December 3 at 10:00 a.m., with eight of those players advancing to the 32-player main draw to begin Tuesday, December 6 at 10:00 a.m. Admission is free for fans throughout the event.

The finals will take place on December 10 (doubles) and December 11 (singles). All matches will be played at the Indoor Tennis Facility at 2566 Pottsdamer Rd., Tallahassee, Fla., 32310.
