ATLANTA (April 13) – The Georgia Tech men’s tennis team (10-10, 4-3 ACC) faces two of its toughest opponents on the final weekend of the regular season, hosting 17th-ranked Miami Saturday at 1 p.m. and 47th-ranked Florida State Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.
Miami, with a record of 15-3, is the highest ranked opponent for the Jackets since they played at No. 3 Duke in early March. The Hurricanes featured the 38th-ranked doubles team of Peter Hoffman and Tomas Smid. Florida State has a record of 11-9 overall, 3-4 in the ACC, after losing its last three matches.
The Jackets dropped a pair of tough ACC matches over the weekend at No. 19 North Carolina and at Wake Forest.
Junior Romain Coirault (Paris, France) won both singles matches over the weekend, improving his record in dual match play to 9-7. He defeated Chad Riley of North Carolina to get the only win for the Jackets in Saturday’s loss.
Freshman Roger Anderson (Pietermaritzburg, South Africa) rebounded from a loss on Saturday to post victories at No. 2 singles and No. 2 doubles against Wake Forest. These wins improved Anderson’s record to 11-5 in singles play and 8-4 in doubles.
