Potvin, King Fall in D'Novo Qualifier

Oct. 6, 2008

ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s Eliot Potvin and Kevin King both lost their first-round matches Monday in the qualifying draw of the D’Novo All-American Championships at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Okla.

Both players took their opponents to three sets, Potvin falling 3-6, 6-4, 4-6 to Jason Jung of Michigan, and King succumbing 4-6, 6-2, 0-6 to Nikolas Cromydas of Vanderbilt. Both will play back draw matches Tuesday, while King will team with the Yellow Jackets’ Guillermo Gomez in a doubles match. Opponents and times are to be determined.

“I’m proud of how both guys fought to extend their matches,” said Tech head coach Kenny Thorne. “I’ve got to give Jason Jung credit for playing a solid match against Eliot. He got the upper hand in the third set by being a little more aggressive. Kevin also did a nice job of fighting back after losing the first set, but he was broken in the first game of the third set and missed some opportunities to break back.”

Gomez is seeded into the main singles draw of the championship, and will begin his competition Thursday.
