TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - After starting the season last weekend with a 4-0 record, the Florida State men's tennis team looks to add four more wins Saturday and Monday as they host another Seminole Quad. Joining the Seminoles are Florida Gulf Coast, Troy, Nebraska, the Citadel and Florida A&M.
"We're looking forward to another big weekend of matches," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We are looking to see how our young players will respond to the competition. These matches are helping us prepare for the ITA Kickoff next week in Gainesville."
The first match on Saturday at 9 a.m. is against Florida Gulf Coast and will be played at the Indoor Tennis Facility at 2566 Pottsdamer Rd. near the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course. The Eagles have one player ranked in Jordi Vives who is No. 61 in singles.
The Seminoles face the Citadel at 4 p.m. on Saturday and is currently scheduled outdoors at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. Monday's match at 9 a.m. is against No. 60 Nebraska. Florida State closes the holiday weekend against Troy at 3 p.m.
Last weekend junior Dominic Cotrone posted a 6-0 record with four singles wins while senior Blake Davis went 3-0 in singles. Due to recent injuries to No. 61 Benjamin Lock and freshman Jose Gracia, who went 3-0 last weekend, the Seminoles expect newcomers to step up and fill those positions.
