Oct. 9, 2008

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s Guillermo Gomez drew the nation’s No. 2-ranked player in the first round of the main draw at the D’Novo All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., and fell in straight sets Thursday. But the sophomore from Alicante, Spain rebounded to win his first consolation match, also in straight sets.

The sophomore from Alicante, Spain, ranked No. 33 in the nation, lost, 6-2, 6-4, to Denes Lukacs of Baylor. He returned to the court a few hours later to eliminate Chris Clayton of Harvard, 6-0, 6-2. Gomez had been seeded into the main draw, while Tech teammates Kevin King and Eliot Potvin were unable to advance through qualifying.

“Guillermo played hard and very solid from the first to the last point,” said Tech head coach Kenny Thorne, “and the Baylor player is very good. He rebounded nicely this afternoon, however.”

Gomez moves on in the back draw to face an Moritz Baumann of WisconsIn Friday.
