Hello, My Name is ... Christopher Eubanks

Nov. 19, 2014

THE FLATS – A Blue Chip prospect rating in 2013 by the Tennis Recruiting Network, the highest level possible, Christopher Eubanks was ranked as high as the nation’s 14th-ranked junior player before enrolling at Tech.

He enjoyed a fine fall season, winning the singles and doubles titles (with Michael Kay) in the main draw at the Georgia Tech Invitational without losing a set in any of his three matches in singles. He reached the finals of the Southern Intercollegiate Championships in doubles with Nathan Rakitt, and went 2-1 in singles, only loss to the nation’s third-ranked player (Axel Alvarez Llamas of Oklahoma).

He has already played twice in the BB&T Atlanta Open.
