CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Georgia Tech senior men’s tennis standout Roger Anderson won his 11th-straight match on Sunday, and with it a second fall tournament individual crown as he captured the ITA Region II Singles Championship for the second-straight year in Chapel Hill, N.C.
Anderson, who last year became the first Yellow Jacket to win the Region II crown, picked up a pair of victories on Sunday to earn the win and a berth in the ITA National Indoor Championships.
In the first match of the day, the Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, native easily disposed of North Carolina’s Nicholas Monroe in straight sets by scores of 6-1 and 6-2. Anderson then faced the Tar Heels’ sixth-seeded Trystan Meniane in the finals and used three sets to win the title. Anderson won the first set by a 6-4 score before dropping the second set by a 6-4 count. In the decisive third set, Anderson claimed the match by a 6-3 score.
While the fall schedule has concluded for the rest of the Yellow Jackets, Anderson will next be in action on Nov. 7 at the ITA National Indoor Championships in Dallas, Texas. The field includes all finalists from the 16 regional tournaments. Full results from the ITA Region II event can be found at www.tennisinformation.com.
