Jalif Advances To The Consolation Quarterfinals At Southeast Regionals



Gainesville, Fla. – Florida State men’s tennis returned to the Alfred A. Ring Tennis Complex on the University of Florida Campus for day two of the 2019 ITA Southeast Regional Championship. The Seminoles went 0-2 in doubles and 4-5 in singles with sophomore Juan Martin Jalif advancing to the consolation singles quarterfinals.

In main draw singles, freshman Loris Pourroy got the day started with a dominating performance 6-2, 6-1 over Antoine Sanchez of Stetson.  Junior Sebastian Arcila continued the momentum by taking down Luquet (USF) 3-6, 6-1, 6-3.  Pourroy and Arcila would later come up short with the freshman falling 6-4, 6-3 to Jason Legall (FAU) and the junior to Vazha Shubladze (GST) 6-4, 6-3.

The Garnet and Gold then focused on consolation singles where Jalif came out with a tie break victory over Sebastian Ocorio of UCF 6-3, 6-7(2), 10-3.  With this win, the sophomore will be the only Seminole advancing at Regionals.  Junior Chase Wood fell to Brian Berdusco (UF) in a tie break battle 3-6, 6-0, 10-5 while sophomore Richard Thongoana falling 6-3, 6-3 to Pable Schlecher (GT).  Senior Rana-Roop Singh Bhullar started his day off strong by taking down Bojan Janklovski (UM) 6-1, 6-3 but his run came to an end later in the day after falling 7-6, 6-4 to Georgia’s Erik Grevelius.

The day ended with doubles play as Florida State battled it out against UCF and USF.  Jalif and Arcila went up against Wojcik and Bollipalli of USF falling 8-5.  Sophomore Bryn Nahrung teamed up with Thongoana as they fell short 8-4 to Pavel/Sokolovskiy of UCF.
