Tallahassee, FL – Florida State got out to a strong start Sunday afternoon in doubles but couldn’t carry the momentum into singles falling to Louisville 4-1. The Seminoles had opportunities on the day taking three of the singles matches into a third set but were unable to secure any of those victories.
For the second time this weekend, the Seminoles got out to the lead by taking the doubles point. Andreja Petrovic and Chase Wood came off first with a 6-4 win. After the Cardinals evened things up at 1-1, Loris Pourroy and Marcus Walters clinched the point with a 7-5 victory.
Louisville vaulted into the lead securing the first two points in singles in straight sets. Pourroy and Petrovic both had chances to put the Seminoles back on the board but each fell in the third set of their match. Sebastian Arcila was looking to point as well as he was tied 1-1 in the third set when the match was clinched and Richard Thongoana was in-line to take the nation’s No. 63 singles player into a third set as well.
The Seminoles have just one match next week as the team wraps up its non-conference schedule. Florida Atlantic will visit the Scott Speicher Memorial Tennis Center for an 11:00 am match Friday, April 2.
