Owen advances to quarterfinals before losing to No. 1 seed

May 31, 2001

Tallahassee, Fla. -- Day two of the pre-qualifying draw of the USTA Tallahassee Challenger saw all four Seminole men's tennis players lose. FSU freshman Jarrod Owen was the only Seminole to advance to the quarterfinals after four 'Noles moved out of Wednesday's first round. The pre-qualifying draw will resume on Friday with the semifinals. Owen lost in his second match of the day to the No. 1 seeded player, Michael Lang from the University of Miami.

Lang was ranked 46th in the nation during this past collegiate season. Owen had won earlier in the day to advance to face Lang in the quarterfinals. Owen was the only Seminole to win in the second round, defeating Sean Maymi 6-4, 6-1 in the morning to keep the Seminoles hopes alive. The winner of the pre-qualifying draw will get a chance to earn a spot in the main draw by playing well on Sunday and Monday in the qualifying draw. Six players will have the chance to gain entry into the main draw from the qualifying draw.

The action continues Friday at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center with two semifinal matches. For more information on the tournament please contact Jason Byrne at 644-1350.
