I was proud to see some of our guys win convincingly to move onto the next round. Tomorrow is a more challenging day to play two singles, and we have two of our guys playing each other. The tennis is going to get heightened and it's going to get a little more intense tomorrow."

Early this morning, the singles round of 16 started with junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez winning 6-1, 6-2 over UCF's Inaki Espindola. Freshman Jose Gracia came out strong with a dominating 6-1, 6-3 win over Yannick Zuern of North Florida.

It was Grayson and mine's first time playing a doubles match, but we've been playing well in practice and play similar games so we just stayed aggressive and go for our shots."

Gonzalez Mendez Wins Bedford Cup.

In a Seminole showdown, Gonzalez Mendez tops teammate Rinaldi to win the singles title.

He becomes the first Seminole to win the singles title in the Bedford Cup, which is in its third year.

"This weekend we've had really good records in the third sets," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "I thought some of our best tennis came out when we were playing against each other. Cristian was able to win two matches in three sets this weekend."

Sophomore Michael Rinaldi and Gonzalez Mendez both battled hard going back and forth in the first set until the junior got a break to win 6-4. The opposite happened during the second set with both players competing back and forth until Rinaldi got a late break to win 7-5.

In the third set, Rinaldi seemed to be in complete control, up 5-2, but Gonzalez Mendez fought back by winning three straight games to make it 5-5. With the set going into a tiebreaker, the junior won three straight points and held on to the lead to win 7-2 against the physically tired Rinaldi.

"It was a very tough match against my teammate," said Gonzalez Mendez. "There were a lot of ups and downs for both of us. I knew I had to fight hard just to get a chance to come back to win the match. It is an honor to win this prestigious event and to be the first Seminole to win the singles title. Michael had such a great tournament and played real hard today.

"Cristian was down 5-2 in the third and came back to win," continued Hultquist. "It's always good to see how someone can come back and not be out of the match. This is Michael's his first match that he's lost this fall and is now 7-1. It's important that he's playing good every day and is stronger than he was last year."

In doubles play, Nunez and Lock received first round byes to compete in the second round on Tuesday. The duo faced Cale Hammond and Fred Saba of Duke to win 8-3. They need to win two matches on Wednesday to advance to the main draw of doubles. They take on Virginia's Harrison Richmond and Justin Shane at 9 a.m.

Lock Advances To Main Draw At All-Americans.

Lock reached the finals of both qualifying draws on Wednesday.

Oct. 2, 2013

TULSA, OK - After three days of long matches and hard work, Benjamin Lock advanced to the singles main draw of the ITA All-American Championships on Wednesday. He competes Thursday at the University of Tulsa against No. 10 Soren Hess-Olesen of Texas.

In the final match of the day, Lock faced Bruno Semenzato of Duke for the chance to advance to the main draw. Semenzato won the first set after both players stayed on serve. Lock stepped up his play, and to the baseline, and did not back down to easily win the next two sets to win the match 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.

"I'm really happy with the way I have been playing this week," said Lock. "I have been training hard with the coaches this semester and it's great to see the hard work paying off. Today was a tough match physically but after the first set, I started playing some of my best tennis of the fall. Coach Nick (Crowell) did a great job on the court with me. He kept me calm and helped me finish strong. I'm extremely happy to qualify for the main draw but tomorrow is a new day."

Lock started Wednesday morning in the qualifying doubles draw with partner Marco Nunez. The paired defeated Virginia's Harrison Richmond and Justin Shane 8-7 (6) in the third round. The duo played the final round against the No. 49 couple in the nation, Sean Weber and Nick Horton of NC State. After a tight match going back and forth, Florida State lost 8-6.

"I'm really proud of Benjamin for qualifying to the main draw of All-Americans," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist.

ATLANTA, GA - After a morning of five Seminoles advancing to the round of 32 of singles, Florida State took control of the doubles draw winning six of seven matches. Three teams compete in tomorrow's quarterfinals of the ITA Southeast Regional Championships.

"I am proud of the guys to have three teams go to the quarterfinals," said Hultquist. "We also had another team that had a great battle but came up short in a tiebreaker. Benjamin and Marco highlighted the night by having a win over the No. 7 doubles team in the nation. Blake and Dominic played better as the day went on in doubles and I'm pleased with Cristian and Jose's play."

Competing at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex on the campus of Georgia Tech, the Seminoles started slow winning only one of five matches until the team finished with four straight wins to advance five players to Sunday's round of 32 of the singles draw. The team did win four of six three set matches.

Junior Dominic Cotrone got the first win of the day with a 6-2, 6-2 match over Jake Bouchillon of Kennesaw State. Junior Benjamin Lock followed suit in a match against Thomas Cook of Georgia State. He lost the first set but came back to win 5-7, 6-3, 6-2.

"I was playing tentative and not too loose which made me not be the aggressive one so I let him take control of the match," said Gracia. "After he broke me early in the second set I just let the shots go and didn't think about it as I went on to win the match."

Closing out singles was sophomore Michael Rinaldi against Kennesaw State's Simon Pritchard. After losing the first set in a tiebreaker, he fought back strong in the second set and proceeded to play lights out tennis in the third for the 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-2.

In doubles play the Seminoles started strong with No. 5 Cotrone and senior Blake Davis winning 8-5 against USF's Paul Polarczyk and Vadym Kalyuzhnyy in the round of 32. In the round of 16, they took down Florida Gulf Coast's Jordi Vives and Lucas Vaz 8-2.

"I thought I played well today," said Cotrone. "I tried to stay solid in singles and find a rhythm on the courts. It was a lot of fun playing doubles with Blake again. We came out and played really well against some good teams, it was good for us to gain confidence with those two wins."

Next up for Florida State was Lock and sophomore Marco Nunez. In the round of 32 the duo won 8-5 over Mercer's Oliver Snaider and Austin Emmet. In the round of 16, they faced off against the No. 7 pair of Garrett Brasseaux and Nathan Pasha. Nunez, a transfer from Georgia, and Lock got the upset with a 8-6 win.

The last doubles group to reach the quarterfinals is Gonzalez Mendez and Gracia. The dup played great tennis to win 8-3 over Thomas Cook and Valentin Horvat of Georgia State. Facing Florida's Richard Brej and Maxx Lipman did not stop the Seminoles as they went on to win 8-1.

"I just came out swinging in doubles during our first match," continued Gracia. "Cristian did a great job of pumping me up during both matches. In the second match against Florida, I didn't want to lose to them. I just played off pure adrenalin against our rivals."

This morning, the team came out against No. 57 Elliott Orkin and Gordon Watson of Florida. That Florida group defeated Florida State's No. 5 doubles team of Dominic Cotrone and Blake Davis on Sunday so the Seminoles knew who they were going to be facing.

Lock, Nunez Advance To Quarterfinals.

The tennis duo won two matches in Flushing, N.Y. in the National Indoors.

Nov. 7, 2013

FLUSHING, NY - It took last minute breaks Thursday, but the doubles team of Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez advanced to the quarterfinals of the USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships. The Florida State men's tennis duo won two matches at the USTA-Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.

"Today we played some great matches," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "I was proud to see our guys fight back from being down 5-3 in the second match. We played an excellent tiebreaker and were able to run away with it."

The Noles started the day against William Kallberg and Stefan Lindmark of Ole Miss in the round of 32. After each team stayed on serve throughout the match, the Seminoles broke to go up 7-6 and then held serve to win 8-6.

After a 90 minute break, Lock and Nunez returned to the courts against Idaho's Jose Bendeck and Cristobal Ramos. The Seminoles fell behind 5-3 before fighting back to get back on serve. Florida State broke to go up 7-6 but Nunez was unable to hold serve to force a tiebreaker. At that point, Florida State took control and easily won the tiebreaker to win 8-7 (6).

"I thought today was a tough but good day at the office," said Lock. "We played well in our first match and were happy with the result. I felt that in the second match we didn't serve as well so we had to come up with some big plays on big points. Marco did a great job of returning and really kept us in the match when we were down 5-3. Dwayne kept us mentally stable and helped boost our confidence to clinch it in the tiebreaker."

"We played two tough matches today," said Nunez. "The best players in the country are here and we needed to stay really focused to get both wins. I'm just really proud of our team, Benjamin played awesome and Dwayne helped us a lot on court. There has been a lot of support from back in Tallahassee with our teammates texting us congratulations and Nick (Crowell) and Taylor (Braziel) giving us extra advice for the next matches."

The duo takes on the No. 2 seed of Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen of Texas on Friday.

"We excited to play in tomorrow's quarterfinals," concluded Hultquist. "We're playing some good doubles but there's a few things we need to work on to be better."

The Seminoles did not face any break points during the entire match. The two teams battled back and forth with one another staying on serve until the score was 6-all.

With Texas serving, Nunez had a strong backhand return with Lock putting it away at the net to break the Longhorns and go up 7-6. Nunez served out the point and the Seminoles won 8-6 to advance to Saturday's semifinals.

"It was a really well played match," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "Both teams served very well but the key point of the match was when it was at 6-all. I thought Benjamin's ability to return the second serve and put it down at the feet of the server and Marco putting balls away at the net really helped."

"We are so happy to make it to the semifinals here in New York," said Lock. "Today was one of our better matches if the fall. We served and returned great. Marco returned extremely well and as a team we really stepped it up on the big points. Dwayne has been doing a great job with us and we are all excited for tomorrow."

The doubles team faces Ashok Narayana and Max Schnur of Columbia at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.

Seminoles Remain Undefeated.

Florida State is off to their best start since 1998.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Concluding the long weekend with two wins, the No. 36 Florida State men's tennis team is off to its best start since 1998 with an 8-0 record. Facing adversity for the first time this season, the team was able to handle their problems to defeat both No. 60 Nebraska and Troy at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

Beginning the morning against Nebraska (1-1), the Seminoles took an early 1-0 lead by winning the doubles point, but it was not easy. Sophomore Marco Nunez and freshman Grayson Goldin easily won their match 6-2 to help clinch the point. Senior Blake Davis and junior Dominic Cotrone were down 3-1 against Brandon Videtich and Bradford Zitsch on court one, but fought through five straight games to win 6-3.

Following doubles, Goldin continued to put wins in the record book as he took down Vasileious Stavropoulos 6-2, 6-1 while junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez won 6-2, 6-1 over Andrew Dzulynsky. With the match at 3-1, Nebraska started to gain momentum having topped Davis. After winning his first set, Cotrone was down 5-2 in the second but changed his mind set to begin a comeback.

"I knew the match was close and that Michael was holding on serve on his court," said Cotrone. "But I knew the longer I could stay on the court, it would give confidence to Michael for him to close out his match and clinch for us. I could tell the other guy was starting to get tired so that's when I turned it on."

Sophomore Michael Rinaldi was able to hold onto the lead and clinch the match with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Beauregard Treyz. Cotrone was able to finish his comeback to defeat Dusty Boyer 6-1, 6-5 (5). The Seminoles won the match 5-2 over the Huskers.

In the afternoon, Florida State returned to the courts to take on Troy (0-3). Troy had their own Trojan Horse attack up their sleeve and stunned the Seminoles as they won the doubles point. Having lost their first doubles point of the season, the team knew they had to come out strong in singles.

Davis came off the courts first to tie the match at 1-1. He topped Mansingh Athare easily 6-1, 6-0 on court two to bounce back from his morning match. Cotrone then won his match 6-1, 6-1 on court one to give the Seminoles the lead, which they never looked back from.

Golding extended his spring record to 4-0 as he toppled Tadju Davies 6-1, 6-3. Gonzalez Mendez got his second clinch of the weekend as he won 6-3, 6-2 to give the Seminoles their win.

"We've been practicing very hard since we've been back from the winter break and that helped us today," said Gonzalez Mendez. "After doubles we talked about starting very strong in every court and wanting to win 12 out of the 12 sets, which worked. It stayed in our minds to win every single point."

Rinaldi and Nunez finished out the match with wins to give Florida State the 6-1 victory over Troy.

"It was our first time losing the doubles point and we did a good job bouncing back in singles," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We had some guys really take care of business and get off the courts fast in singles. It's going to be a little different playing no-ad doubles this year, so it's important to get off to a quick start this year."

Seminoles Remain Undefeated.

Florida State is off to their best start since 1998.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Concluding the long weekend with two wins, the No. 36 Florida State men's tennis team is off to its best start since 1998 with an 8-0 record. Facing adversity for the first time this season, the team was able to handle their problems to defeat both No. 60 Nebraska and Troy at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

Beginning the morning against Nebraska (1-1), the Seminoles took an early 1-0 lead by winning the doubles point, but it was not easy. Sophomore Marco Nunez and freshman Grayson Goldin easily won their match 6-2 to help clinch the point. Senior Blake Davis and junior Dominic Cotrone were down 3-1 against Brandon Videtich and Bradford Zitsch on court one, but fought through five straight games to win 6-3.

Following doubles, Goldin continued to put wins in the record book as he took down Vasileious Stavropoulos 6-2, 6-1 while junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez won 6-2, 6-1 over Andrew Dzulynsky. With the match at 3-1, Nebraska started to gain momentum having topped Davis. After winning his first set, Cotrone was down 5-2 in the second but changed his mind set to begin a comeback.

"I knew the match was close and that Michael was holding on serve on his court," said Cotrone. "But I knew the longer I could stay on the court, it would give confidence to Michael for him to close out his match and clinch for us. I could tell the other guy was starting to get tired so that's when I turned it on."

Sophomore Michael Rinaldi was able to hold onto the lead and clinch the match with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Beauregard Treyz. Cotrone was able to finish his comeback to defeat Dusty Boyer 6-1, 6-5 (5). The Seminoles won the match 5-2 over the Huskers.

In the afternoon, Florida State returned to the courts to take on Troy (0-3). Troy had their own Trojan Horse attack up their sleeve and stunned the Seminoles as they won the doubles point. Having lost their first doubles point of the season, the team knew they had to come out strong in singles.

Davis came off the courts first to tie the match at 1-1. He topped Mansingh Athare easily 6-1, 6-0 on court two to bounce back from his morning match. Cotrone then won his match 6-1, 6-1 on court one to give the Seminoles the lead, which they never looked back from.

Golding extended his spring record to 4-0 as he toppled Tadju Davies 6-1, 6-3. Gonzalez Mendez got his second clinch of the weekend as he won 6-3, 6-2 to give the Seminoles their win.

"We've been practicing very hard since we've been back from the winter break and that helped us today," said Gonzalez Mendez. "After doubles we talked about starting very strong in every court and wanting to win 12 out of the 12 sets, which worked. It stayed in our minds to win every single point."

Rinaldi and Nunez finished out the match with wins to give Florida State the 6-1 victory over Troy.

"It was our first time losing the doubles point and we did a good job bouncing back in singles," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We had some guys really take care of business and get off the courts fast in singles. It's going to be a little different playing no-ad doubles this year, so it's important to get off to a quick start this year."

Noles Drop Tight 4-3 Match To TCU.

Florida State plays Sunday at noon against UNC-Wilmington.

GAINESVILLE, FL - After a grueling three and a half hour long match, with points going back and forth between Florida State (8-1) and TCU (1-0), the No. 35 Seminoles lost their first match of the year as the No. 38 Horned Frogs won 4-3 Saturday on the campus of the University of Florida.

In the first match of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend, the Seminoles came out strong to win the doubles point. Senior Blake Davis and junior Dominic Cotrone nabbed a quick 6-1 win over the No. 11 doubles team of Nick Chappell and Will Stein. TCU came back to make doubles tied as sophomore Marco Nunez and freshman Grayson Goldin lost 6-4.

Down 4-2 on court three, junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and sophomore Michael Rinaldi took control and fought back to win four straight games to clinch the doubles point for the Seminoles with a 6-5 (5) win over Jhonathan Gonzalez and Facundo Lugones.

"Doubles was well played today," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "It was very intense. The most important game on court one was them winning the first game very decisively. Third doubles being down and then coming back to win was great for them and it showed their improvement after playing for the first time together last week."

In singles Goldin got off to a quick start by winning his match in under an hour. His 6-3, 6-0 win over Andres Alfonzo gave the Seminoles a 2-0 lead. Davis fought hard in his first set to come back and force a tiebreaker but was unable to keep that momentum going as he lost his match 6-5 (5), 6-0 against Arnau Dachs.

"Grayson did a great job of winning quickly," continued Hultquist. "We put ourselves in a position to win by getting three first sets."

After winning his first set 6-0, Gonzalez Mendez lost his second set to force a third set. With both players battling back and forth, the Seminole got back his momentum to win the match 6-0, 3-6, 6-5 (4). Cotrone also played a three set battle, but lost his match to No. 84 Chappell 6-3, 2-6, 6-1 in the first position.

Nunez lost his first set and was down 5-2 in the second set until he battled back to win four straight games to win the set. He was unable to hold on as No. 118 Lugones tied the between the two schools with his 6-2, 5-6 (9), 6-1 win.

The deciding match came down to the fifth court as Rinaldi faced off against Trey Daniel. After winning the first set in a tiebreaker, Daniel bounced back to win the second set. Unable to hold his serves, Rinaldi lost the third set as Daniel won 5-6 (4), 6-4, 6-2.

"I thought it was great Marco and Dominic won their second sets to hang in there and give us a chance," concluded Hultquist. "We had a chance with Michael in the third but unfortunately he didn't get the win."

Florida State Fights Back To Beat UNCW 4-0.

The Seminoles are now 9-1 on the season.

GAINESVILLE, FL - After dropping their first match of the season, the No. 35 Florida State men's tennis team (9-1) bounced back to 4-0 against the No. 44 UNC-Wilmington (1-2) in the consolation match of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend on the campus of the University of Florida.

The Seminoles once again won the all-important doubles point. After losing the first match on court two, the Seminoles bounced back with junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and sophomore Michael Rinaldi winning 6-5 (2). Senior Blake Davis and junior Dominic Cotrone broke the Seahawks on court one to win 6-4 and clinch the doubles point.

"It was a good win today," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "UNC-Wilmington is a very good team and it was important to win the doubles point. They got us on court two but I was pleased with Cristian and Michael getting their win on the third court. Blake and Dominic also did a great job of getting the break at 5-4 to win on court one."

In singles play, the Seminoles got off to a quick lead by winning all six first sets. Cotrone won the first singles match as he defeated Sam Williams 6-2, 6-0 on court one. Freshman Grayson Goldin won his tenth consecutive match as he defeated Karan Salwan 6-3, 6-4 on the sixth court.

"I was glad to see us get all six first sets in singles," continued Hultquist. "That really put us in control of the match and it stopped UNC-Wilmington from getting momentum back. Grayson continued his strong play and remains undefeated for the spring. It was good to see Dominic dominate his opponent and Blake to clinch the match as a senior."

Davis bounced back from his loss on Saturday to win 6-3, 6-3 against Pedro Mol to clinch the match for the Seminoles.

"It was really important to win today," said Davis. "It was a little demoralizing losing yesterday but the team did a great job of correcting our problems and bouncing back to win today. It was a tough match for me today, but I did my best to get a quick start in the first and second sets. I was just playing for the team and was able to get a win for the team."

Eventually we started to pick up on their tactics and weaknesses and were able to break back and gain control of the match to win."

Florida State Drops 4-2 Nail Biter To Florida.

Sophomore Dominic Cotrone gained a rank win while Cristian Gonzalez Mendez won his 20th match of the year.

GAINESVILLE, FL -With bragging rights on the line, the No. 36 Florida State men's tennis team took the courts against No. 22 Florida at the Charles R. & Nancy V. Perry Indoor Tennis Facility in Gainesville. With the match moved indoors because of rain, the two teams battled it out until the last point with the Gators winning 4-2. Florida State fell to 11-3 on the year while Florida is now 5-4.

"It was a really well played match between two very good teams trying to fight hard for their schools," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "Dominic did a good job of finishing off his guy while Michael did a good job of getting his match into the third set. There were a lot of matches that could have gone either way. Cristian won in the third after losing the second while Blake played extremely well to come back from being down in the second."

The Seminoles started strong in doubles with No. 23 Blake Davis and Dominic Cotrone getting a break in the first game. After going up 5-2, the Gators duo of No. 26 Stephane Piro and Michael Alford started to gain momentum to even up the match 6-6. The Gators held serve and then broke the Seminoles to win the match 8-6.

On court two, Marco Nunez and Grayson Goldin struggled early and were down 6-1. The duo started to gain confidence and came back to make the match close and made the score 6-4 in Florida's favor. After some back-and-forth play between the two teams, the No. 9 duo of Gordon Watson and Elliott Orkin won 8-5. With both wins, the Gators clinched the doubles point.

Because the indoor facility only has three courts, the first three positions took to the courts with the last three filling in as the other matches finished. Davis came off the courts first in a battle against Watson in the two position. After falling 6-2 in the first set, Davis was down 5-1in the second set but fought back to make the match 5-5. Unfortunately he was unable to hold onto the momentum as he lost 6-2, 7-6 (3).

One of the highlights of the night was Cotrone playing in the first position against No. 65 Spencer Newman. After the two players battled it out in the first set, Cotrone came away with the first set and then proceeded to win the match 7-5, 6-2.

The next match off for the Seminoles was Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Diego Hildalgo in the third spot. After dropping the first set, the junior started to set a rhythm as he came back to win the second set by nabbing two aces in the last game. He grasped onto the momentum and carried it over to the third as he won the match 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 to win his 20th match of the season.

Sophomore Marco Nunez took the court against Florent Diep and won his first set in the match however Diep rolled in the second set to force a third. The two competed with each other hard but a late rally by Diep put the Gators up 3-2 as he won 4-6, 6-1, 6-4.

Sophomore Michael Rinaldi and Maxx Lipman played in the fifth spot with Florida winning the first set. Listening to the cheers of his teammate and seeing Nunez fight on his court, Rinaldi bounced back to win his second set to force a third. Goldin faced Alford in the sixth position and lost the first set. With Rinaldi playing his third set and Goldin in his second, the match came down to the two of them. With Florida serving it out for the win on both courts, Lipman got his serve in first to take down Rinaldi 6-2, 3-6, 6-2 and win the match.

Seminoles Run Down The Bulls To Win 4-3.

After falling behind 2-0, the Seminoles won four straight singles matches to clinch the win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Come from behind was the theme of the day as the No. 36 Florida State men's tennis team (12-3) ran down the USF Bulls (5-3) 4-3 on Saturday. After dropping the doubles point and the first singles match, the Seminoles won four straight matches to clinch at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

"South Florida capitalized from winning the doubles point by jumping out quickly to get early breaks on four of the six courts and then went on to win three of the six first sets," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "It was great to see us close out a couple of matches quickly in Marco and Grayson. The key to the match was Blake quickly winning the second and third sets after losing the first. It was also great to see Cristian break serve at 5-4 to clinch the match."

In doubles play, sophomore Marco Nunez and freshman Grayson Goldin were defeated early as No. 35 Ignacio Gonzalez-Muniz and Oliver Pramming won 8-5 on court two. Junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and sophomore Michael Rinaldi were able to tie up doubles as they won 8-5 over Everth Dzib and Vadym Kalyuzhnyy on court three.

In singles play, the first sets were split between the two teams with South Florida riding thee momentum from the doubles win. No. 81 Cid of USF used his momentum from winning the first set to finish off the match quickly with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Cotrone to gain a 2-0 lead in the match.

Dropping the first set 1-6, Davis changed his game plan and regained control as he lost only one game over the next two sets. With the fans and team rallying behind him, his 1-6, 6-0, 6-1 win put the Seminoles on the board.

Nunez faced Kalyuzhnyy on court four and tied up the match with a strong 6-1, 6-4 win in the four spot. Goldin continued his stellar play as he won his 14 straight singles match with a 6-3, 6-3 win on court six. His win gave Florida State a 3-2 lead.

Florida State Falls To Texas 5-2.

Cristian Gonzalez Mendez upsets No. 60 George Goldhoff.

AUSTIN, TX - The Seminoles dropped to No. 7 Texas on Friday night 5-2 at the Penick-Allison Tennis Center. Florida State is now 12-4 this season while the Longhorns are 13-2. They return to action Tuesday against Clemson.

"We played a good hard fought match tonight," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "The doubles point was important and we had some opportunities but we were unable to win the 8-7 tiebreakers. We won three first sets in singles, but it was a competitive match and we couldn't convert all of our chances."

In doubles play, the two teams squared off to fight for a tight doubles point. On court one, No. 23 Blake Davis and Dominic Cotrone faced No. 8 Soren Hess-Olesen and were leading for the first part of the match. Texas broke back and tied the match to force a tiebreaker, the Longhorns went on to win the match 8-7 (6).

On court two, Marco Nunez and Grayson Goldin defeated Jacoby Lewis and David Holiner 8-6 to tie up doubles. On court three, Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Michael Rinaldi faced off against George Goldhoff and David Holiner but were defeated in a tiebreaker 8-7 (4).

In singles play, the Seminoles managed to win three first sets to give the team a chance to fight back and win the match but the Longhorns quickly won three singles matches to win the match.

Gonzalez Mendez won his first set but dropped his second set against No. 60 Goldhoff to force a third set tiebreaker. The two battled it out but Gonzalez Mendez stayed on top to win 6-3, 6-7 (6), 1-0 (10-8) in the third spot.

"Cristian has played well all year," continued Hultquist. "He's been a very solid point for us this year and I'm not surprised he got another ranked win. He's certainly playing good tennis but is doing it both patiently and aggressively."

Rinaldi also gained a strong 6-3, 7-6 (7) win against Holiner on court five.

Seminoles Fail To Tame The Tigers.

Jake Albo and Marco Nunez provided Florida State with singles wins.

CLEMSON, SC - The No. 34 Florida State men's tennis team failed to tame the No. 22 Clemson Tigers on Tuesday afternoon at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center. Despite winning four first sets, the team could not hold on as the Tigers (15-3, 2-0) won 5-2. The Seminoles dropped to 12-5 on the season and are now 1-1 in conference play.

"We were a little banged up today," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We played hard but we were 0-4 in tiebreakers today. If we would have won one of those, we would have had a chance to win. We got the momentum after winning the first four sets but Clemson did a great job of coming back. We had a chance to win on both Blake and Grayson's courts but they couldn't close out the match."

Clemson won the doubles point by winning on courts one and three but sophomore Marco Nunez and freshman Grayson Goldin upped their record to 8-4 on the year with an 8-3 win over Alejandro Augusto and Robert Dudley in the two spot.

In singles play, the Seminoles gained back momentum as they won four first sets to put the team in a strong position. Freshman Jake Albo, playing in his first singles match since mid-January, came off the courts quickly to tie the match up with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Fernando Sala on court six.

Nunez followed suit and came off of court four with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Austin Ansari. While raising his duel record to 8-6, he gave the team a 2-1 lead over the Tigers. Also winning first sets for the team was senior Blake Davis and Goldin.

At that point, the tide turned as juniors No. 122 Dominic Cotrone and No. 86 Cristian Gonzalez Mendez were both upset to give Clemson the 3-2 lead.

With both Davis and Goldin both needing to win their matches, all eyes were on courts two and five, respectively. No. 116 Goldin managed to hold serve against Luke Johnson but was broke at 4-4, Johnson closed out his serve to upset Goldin 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 and to clinch the match for Clemson. Davis's match was closed out but he lost the match to Dominique Maden in the in the third set 3-6, 7-6 (4), 1-0 (10-2).

Seminoles Fight Off Wolfpack To Win 4-3.

The Seminoles are now 2-1 in conference play.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 41 Florida State men's tennis team (13-5, 2-1) took down No. 31 NC State 4-3 on Friday night at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The team won four singles matches to clinch the win after dropping the doubles point.

"It was a great atmosphere tonight," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "I was really pleased with the effort put forth to come from behind after losing doubles. NC State is a great team and this was one of our best matches of the year."

With Florida State seeking revenge after being upset last season, both teams took the courts with gusto in doubles. Playing together for the first time since January, sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin won 8-5 over Austin Powell and Parker McGuiness. Unfortunately NC State won the other two matches to clinch the doubles point.

Down 1-0, the team won only three first sets of singles play with senior Blake Davis getting a fast 6-1, 6-2 win over Sean Weber on court three. Rinaldi would go on to loss to Simon Norenius 6-4, 6-4 on court five to give NC State the 2-1 advantage.

"When you have those tough doubles points, you always want to come out strong in singles to change the momentum," said Davis. "I was able to that today against a good player which gave our team confidence."

After losing their first sets, both junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Goldin won their second sets to force third sets. With momentum gaining back into the Seminoles' favor, No. 122 Dominic Cotrone upset No. 41 Powell 6-4, 6-4 in the one spot to tie the match back up.

"After losing to Austin last year at NC State, Dominic played a really good match tonight and probably one of this best of the year," continued Hultquist. "It was huge for Grayson to win his second set because we had no clue which way it would go."

After losing his first set, No. 86 Gonzalez Mendez put on the cruise control and coasted through the remaining of the match on court two against No. 98 Robbie Mudge and was up 5-2 in the third. Sophomore Marco Nunez was battling it out next to him on court four against Nick Horton and was winning the tiebreaker 6-4.

With both matches needed to clinch the match, the two were just a serve away from the win. Nunez returned Horton's serve to win his match 6-3, 7-6 (4) and give the Seminoles a 3-1 lead.

Gonzalez Mendez served moments later to clinch the match and won 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 for the Seminoles and snapped their two match losing streak.

"The crowd was awesome out there being loud and cheering on the courts that needed it," said Gonzalez Mendez. "It was good that Grayson and I won our second sets after dropping our first sets and losing the doubles point. This win helped us gain momentum and confidence that we can use on Sunday."

"Cristian lost the first set pretty convincingly but didn't panic and came back to win," concluded Hultquist. "I was pleased for Marco to win in the second and not go on further."

Goldin went on to loss his match 6-2, 5-7, 7-2 to Parker McGuiness on court six.

Seminoles Knock Down Demon Deacons, Rattlers.

Florida State upsets the No. 18 team in the nation.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 41 Florida State men's tennis team closed out the weekend with a 4-3 upset over No. 18 Wake Forest Sunday afternoon. In the evening, the Seminoles swept the Rattlers 7-0 and are now 15-5 on the season with a 3-1 conference record.

"Wake Forest was probably the best win of the year for us," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "It was a great weekend with us going 3-0 and it now gives us several solid conference wins. We have a lot to look forward to now with a very tough weekend coming up."

After losing an abnormal five straight doubles points in a row this year, the Seminoles were back in form by winning all six doubles matches Sunday.

Beginning the day at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center against Wake Forest, No. 41 Dominic Cotrone and Blake Davis topped Jon Ho and Adam Lee 8-3 on court one. Grayson Goldin and Michael Rinaldi followed up with an 8-6 win over Aws Laaribi and Anthony Delcore on court three. On court two, Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Marco Nunez upset the No. 58 duo of Romain Bogaerts and Maksim Kan 8-7 (5) to close out doubles.

"It was important to win the doubles point this afternoon," said Hultquist. "It was great to see Blake and Dominic get a solid win and for the rest of the teams to get wins on every court."

"It was great to get the doubles point after losing it five times in a row," said Gonzalez Mendez. "Today the chemistry between Marco and me was better and we were more synchronized which paid off in the end."

As soon as the teams hit the court for singles, rain hit Tallahassee moving the remainder of the matches to the Indoor Tennis Facility. After a 35 minute delay the teams once again went to battle against one another with the two teams splitting the six first sets.

Rinaldi got off the courts quickly to give the team a 2-0 lead. The sophomore gained a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Nicky Kunz on court five. No. 86 Gonzalez Mendez proceeded to upset No. 48 Adam Lee 6-4, 6-3 on court two to give the Seminoles a 3-0 lead.

At that point, the Demon Deacons won two straight matches to make the match tight. No. 122 Cotrone lost to No. 20 Bogaerts 6-3, 6-4 while Nunez dropped 6-3, 6-3 to Ho.

After dropping his last three singles matches, the pressure was put on Goldin, a freshman recently ranked No. 116 in the nation. After winning his first set to Pedro Dumont, Goldin lost his second set where he only won one game. With the third set tied at 4-4, Goldin fought against Dumont's serve to break him and gain the 5-4 lead. Serving it out, Goldin won the match 6-4, 1-6, 6-4 on court six where his teammates proceeded to tackle him on the court in celebration of the team's upset.

"Grayson really grew up today," continued Hultquist. "With the match on his shoulders he came through to break at 4-4 and then served it out to win. Cristian beat a very good player on court two and had three ranked wins on the weekend. Michael also had a big finish to close out his match to get his win."

Wake Forest closed out the match with #56 Maksim Kan defeating Davis (FSU) 7-6 (4), 6-2 on court three to make the final score 4-3.

"The key today was that everyone contributed to the score and put up a fight," finished Gonzalez Mendez. "We got a win against a team that has been doing well this year. Right now we're in a good position in the ACCs and have a big weekend coming up."

Following a 90 minute break, the Seminoles returned to the court to take on Florida A&M. Playing singles first, the team swept the Rattlers while not dropping a set. Taking the court for the first time since mid-February was redshirt-sophomore Joćo Gauer who quickly won 6-0, 6-2 over Jason Ulacio to get the Seminoles on the scoreboard.

Freshman Jake Albo also posted a quick win with a 6-0, 6-1 win on court five over Jalen Evans. Not dropping a beat from his earlier match, Rinaldi came off the courts with another win, this time a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Courage Okungbowa.

Gonzalez Mendez gained a 6-2, 6-1 win over Zack Everden on court two to clinch the match for the Seminoles. Cotrone topped Admire Mushonga 6-0, 6-2 and then Nunez defeated Augustin Waitman 7-6 (3), 6-3 to finish the singles sweep.

The two teams went straight into doubles play with Florida State playing some new pairs. Nunez and Goldin reunited after playing with new partners the last two matches and came away with an 8-3 win. Cotrone and Albo played together for the first time and won 8-2 while Jack Haffey played in his first match since January and came away with an 8-1 win while teamed up with Gauer.

The Seminoles started strong in doubles play winning two of the three matches for the point. Sophomore Marco Nunez and junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez topped Amerigo Contini and Joao Monteiro 8-2 on court two while sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin won 8-5 over Jai Corbett and Florian Nicoud on court three.

"We lost to one of the best teams in the country today," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "They are very tough to beat up here especially in the indoor courts. They really showed why they are the National Indoor Champions. I was pleased with the effort we got, especially Jake Albo who got a ranked win."

The Cavaliers won on courts one and two to take the doubles point. Although sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin were winning against Justin and Ryan Shane on court three, play was stopped to begin singles play.

Noles Fall To Tar Heels In Marathon Match.

The Seminoles close out the home schedule Sunday against Duke.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 30 Florida State men's tennis team (15-8, 3-4) fought in a grueling match on Friday night dropping to No. 9 North Carolina (19-5, 6-1) 5-2. With two three-set matches and three tiebreakers, the deciding point was not made until after four hours played at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

"I thought the team played well and competed hard," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "I liked seeing Michael, even though he was sick, coming back in his third set. I liked seeing Cristian battling back and Blake coming back. This is the best UNC team I've seen since I've been here. I liked the atmosphere and how energized everyone was."

The two teams started out in doubles which lasted over an hour. UNC quickly got a win on court three with Ronnie Schneider and Jack Murray topping sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin 8-2. Courts one and two were battling back and forth until Carolina got the edge winning 8-6 on court two where Oystein Steiro and Nelson Vick beat junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and sophomore Marco Nunez. Carolina closed out the sweep by winning on court one.

Needing to win four of the six singles matches for the win, the Seminoles got three first set wins to help gain some momentum. Nunez quickly won 6-1, 6-3 over Steiro on court four to tie the match at 1-1. Carolina regained the lead as No. 25 Schneider topped No. 101 Dominic Cotrone 6-1, 6-2.

The Tar Heels took the 3-1 lead as Vick topped freshman Jake Albo 6-2, 7-5 on court six. With the Seminoles needing to win the rest of the matches for the win, senior Blake Davis posted a strong 6-2, 7-6 (6) win over Esben Hess-Olesen on court three to make the score 3-2.

Rinaldi had won his first set against Murray but dropped the second to play in a third set. Gonzalez Mendez dropped his first set to No. 58 Brett Clark but came back to win a tight second set tiebreaker to force a third and give Florida State a chance to win the match.

Fighting illness between each game, Rinaldi was down 5-3 in the third set but came back to tie the set and force a tiebreaker. Unable to hold on, Murray won 1-6, 6-2, 7-6 (0) to clinch the match for the Tar Heels. Gonzalez Mendez was unable to hold onto his match as well as Clark won 7-5, 6-7 (6), 6-3.

Florida State Drops To Duke 5-2.

Junior Dominic Cotrone upset the No. 48 player in the nation.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Playing in their final home match of the year, the No. 30 Florida State men's tennis team (15-9, 3-5) dropped to No. 13-ranked Duke (14-5, 6-1) on Sunday 5-2 at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

"We lost to a really good Duke team today," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "Much like Friday we had some really good efforts. It hurt us a little bit not having Michael (Rinaldi) healthy. I was proud of Grayson (Goldin) getting off the courts fast with his win and also Dominic (Cotrone) coming back to get an upset on one. We need to get a little bit healthier and pick up the doubles which is something that cost us this weekend."

The Blue Devils gained a 1-0 lead after a long doubles point played between the two schools. Although the score was 8-0 in Duke's favor, Florida State's No. 41 tandem of Blake Davis and Dominic Cotrone played many deuce points but dropped to Fred Saba and Raphael Hemmeler on court one.

At the same time, both courts two and three were battling a tiebreaker to decide the doubles point. Duke's Josh Levine and Jason Tahir topped Marco Nunez and Cristian Gonzalez Mendez 8-7 (2) to clinch but Michael Rinaldi and Grayson Goldin held on for the win as the duo won 8-7 (7) over Bruno Semenzato and Daniel McCall.

Just like the team's last match against North Carolina, the two teams split the first sets of singles and had three matches going for three sets. No stranger to long grueling matches, the Seminoles fought hard to try and gain the upset.

TJ Pura gave Duke a 2-0 lead after defeating sophomore Joćo Gauer 6-1, 6-2 on court six but Goldin, a freshman, got the Seminoles on the board with a strong 6-1, 6-3 victory over Levin on court five.

After losing his first set quickly, No. 65 Gonzalez Mendez began to battle back in his second set against No. 54 Saba to give his teammates motivation to play hard in their matches. Saba ended up winning the match 6-0, 6-4 and giving Duke the 3-1 lead.

Needing to win the remainder of the matches for the team win, the three remaining matches ended up all needing a third set to decide the outcome.

After winning his first set, Nunez began to falter as No. 71 Semenzato won the second set losing only one game. The two guys were battling it out on court with the games going back-and-fourth until Semenzato got the break to win 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 and to clinch the match for the Blue Devils.

After playing a first set that lasted nearly 90 minutes, Davis began to cramp up in his third set tiebreaker as Hemmeler gained the 6-7 (6), 6-2, 1-0 (10-4) win on court three.

The most entertaining match of the day was on court one between No. 101 Cotrone and No. 48 Tahir. With Tahir winning the first set, Cotrone gained a 5-0 lead in the second set until Tahir came back and forced a tiebreaker. Supported by his teammates and fans, Cotrone won the tiebreaker and forced a full third set between the two. Once again, the two players dueled it out back-and-forth until Cotrone got the late break to gain the upset and win 3-6, 7-6 (5), 7-5.

"It was a nice win," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "With it being played indoors, our guys were able to adjust to the quick courts. We had a great start in doubles and we finished it out strong."

Adjusting the doubles line-up, the Seminoles came away with the doubles point after quick wins on courts two and three.

Notre Dame Tops Florida State 6-1.

Cristian Gonzalez Mendez nabs the lone win against No. 12 Notre Dame.

NOTRE DAME, IN - The No. 28-ranked Florida State men's tennis team dropped to No. 12 Notre Dame 6-1 on Sunday at the Courtney Tennis Center. The Seminoles are now 16-10 this season and are 4-6 in conference play.

"Notre Dame played very well today on their Senior Day," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We had a chance for the doubles point, we were up at two and on serve on one, but Notre Dame came back to win. We needed that point especially on the road. We were doing okay in the first sets until the end when they broke our serve and pulled ahead. We didn't play well at the beginning of the second sets and couldn't come back."

In doubles play, Notre Dame's Ryan Bandy and Matt Dooley quickly pulled away with an 8-3 win over senior Blake Davis and junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez on court three. The match on court one was tight until sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin dropped serve. Alex Lawson and Billy Pecor defeated the Seminole duo 8-5.

In singles play, Davis was topped by No. 89 Quentin Monaghan 6-2, 6-0 on court three while Goldin fell 7-6 (3), 6-1 to Eric Schnurrenberger on court six to give Notre Dame the 3-0 lead. Rinaldi fell 6-4, 6-3 to Eddy Covalschi on court five for Notre Dame's clinch.

On court one, No. 20 Greg Andrews topped No. 84-ranked Cotrone 6-4, 6-3 as the Irish went up 5-0. Sophomore Marco Nunez won his first set against Josh Hagar on court four, but Hagar came back to win 4-6, 6-2, 6-4.

With the match clinched on court two, Gonzalez Mendez had lost the first set to Bandy and was down 5-0 in the second set, but bounced back and fought hard to win a tiebreaker in the second set. The Seminole went on to win the match 6-7 (4), 7-6 (8), 1-0 (11-9).

"I am proud of Cristian for him coming back from being down 5-0 in the second set," continued Hultquist. "It showed a lot of heart, especially with the match being clinched."

Seminoles Weather Out The Hurricanes.

No. 31 Florida State drops No. 47 Miami 6-1.

CORAL SPRINGS, FL - The No. 31-ranked Florida State men's tennis team closed out the regular season with a 6-1 win over No. 47 Miami. After Saturday's match at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center, the team finished with a 17-10 record and a 5-6 conference mark this year.

"It was a typical rivalry match," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "It was very hard fought and Miami did a good job of coming into singles strong, at one point they were winning four of the six singles matches. It was a grind to get down here with our flight being canceled and not being able to practice Friday night, but our guys did a good job of managing it."

The start of the match was delayed because of rain, but it did not slow down the Seminoles in doubles as senior Blake Davis and junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez got a quick 8-3 win against William Albanese and Henrique Tsukamoto on court three. Sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin clinched the doubles point with an 8-4 win on court two over Gabriel Flores and Diego Soto.

"The doubles point is always important to win and we have great success when we win it," continued Hultquist. "Grayson and Michael played probably one of their best matches of the year today."

In singles play, the two teams split the first sets to put Miami back in the match. Goldin quickly topped Danny Shebshayevich on court six to win 6-1, 6-4 and give the Seminoles a 2-0 lead. Down 5-4 in the first set, sophomore Marco Nunez won three straight games to win the first set and went on to win 7-5, 6-1 over Soto. Moments later, Gonzalez Mendez dropped 6-0, 7-6 (1) to get Miami on the scoreboard.

"I thought the key to the match was Marco," continued Hultquist. "Down 5-4, he broke serve and went on to win the set. He was down 3-0 to start the match but he came back and dominated the second set. It was important for us to have multiple options."

Despite losing their first sets, junior Dominic Cotrone and Davis both won their second sets to force a third. Davis defeated Wilfredo Gonzalez 2-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2 to clinch the match for the Seminoles and give the Seminoles their fourth straight win against the Hurricanes.

No. 99 Cotrone upset No. 66 Omar Aly 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 on court one while Rinaldi won 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 on court five to close out the match.

Florida State Tops Miami 4-0.

The Seminoles face No. 1-seed Virginia Friday morning in the quarterfinals.

CARY, NC - The No. 8-seed Florida State men's tennis team topped No. 9-seed Miami 4-0 in the first round of the ACC Championships Thursday. The Seminoles battled for over three hours at the Cary Tennis Park.

"The match today was very similar to five days ago when we played down in Miami," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "It was a real battle and it showed a lot of the Miami team to be down 3-0 and fight back to win four second sets. Marco had a chance to finish it in the second set and that showed a lot of him to overcome his loss and clinch the match in the third. We look forward to the opportunity to play last year's National Champions Virginia tomorrow."

The Seminoles started strong in doubles play leading all three matches. Sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin put up an 8-3 win over Gabriel Flores and Diego Soto on court two. Senior Blake Davis and junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez clinched the match 8-6 against Bernard Tefel and Henrique Tsukamoto on court three.

"It was good for us to get the doubles point which we've now won three out of the last four matches," continued Hultquist. "We had strong starts on all three courts and was in position to win on all three spots."

In singles play, Florida State started strong winning all six first sets.

Goldin got off the courts extremely fast with a 6-1, 6-1 win over William Albanese on court six to give the Seminoles a 2-0 lead. Junior Dominic Cotrone, ranked No. 72 in singles, faced off against No. 68 Omar Aly on court one. Just five days ago, Cotrone upset Aly at Miami in a three set match. Today Cotrone once again upset Aly, this time only needing two sets as he won 6-1, 6-4.

"Dominic defeating their No. 1 player twice in one week showed a really good effort," concluded Hultquist. "It's always hard to play the same opponent back-to-back and it shows a lot to get those ranked wins."

With the score 3-0, the Seminoles needed to win only one match out of the remaining four matches. The Hurricanes started to come back strong and went on to win all four of those second sets. With a chance to clinch in the second set, sophomore Marco Nunez lost that set and started to fight back in the third set.

Nunez started to rally around the support of his teammates and from the women's tennis team who had just won their match. He won his match 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 against Soto to clinch the match for the Seminoles.

"I had chances to close it out in the second set but my opponent played really well to win the second set," continued Nunez. "When the third set started, I was ready because I knew my team needed me for the win. I think everyone had a great effort fighting especially Dominic and Grayson winning fast, which helped us a lot. Having the women's team next to us helped a lot by hearing them cheer. The people outside the court cheering were great motivation for me in the third set."

Florida State Drops To Virginia 4-0.

The Seminoles lost to No. 1-seed Virginia Friday morning in the quarterfinals.

CARY, NC - The No. 8-seeded Florida State men's tennis team dropped to the No. 1-seed, Virginia, 4-0 in the quarterfinals of the ACC Championships Friday at the Cary Tennis Park. Florida State is now 18-11 this year.

In doubles play, the Seminoles started well with a break on court three and multiple break point opportunities on court two, but the Cavaliers won 8-5 on court one over Dominic Cotrone and Marco Nunez. Virginia clinched the doubles point with an 8-3 win by Alex Domijan and Harrison Richmond over Grayson Goldin and Michael Rinaldi on court two.

"Early on we had some chances at doubles," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We got up a break at three and had a good start. We had about eight break point chances to get up on two. We really needed to get up early in doubles but Virginia held off the break points and were able to get the doubles point with wins on one and two."

In singles play, the Seminoles were up on courts four and six and stayed on serve on courts two and three. Freshman Jake Albo won his first set on court six, but none of the other Florida State players were able to hold on as the Cavaliers went on to win the five remaining first sets.

"I was really pleased with how well Jake played," continued Hultquist. "He didn't get to finish but was winning when the match finished. Cristian played Mitchell Frank very well and I thought that was some really good tennis out there and he played a strong match."

No. 14-ranked Domijan topped No. 72 Cotrone on court one 6-0, 6-2 while No. 115 Thai-Son Kwiatowski defeated Goldin 6-2, 6-1 on court five. Virginia clinched the match on court three when No. 47 Ryan Shane topped Nunez 6-3, 6-4.

"We actually started very good in singles," continued Hultquist. "Jake got up and ended up winning the first set. Blake was up 4-1 with two breaks while Cristian and Marco were on serve. I thought the change in the match was when Cristian and Marco lost their first sets and with the momentum switch Blake lost his set."

In doubles play, the Seminoles got off to a quick start and were leading on all three courts. Sophomore Michael Rinaldi and freshman Grayson Goldin went on to quickly win their match 8-1 over Vadym Kalyuzhnyy and Everth Dzib on court three.

USF was able to come back and win on court one to tie up the doubles point. The No. 81 duo of Dominic Cotrone and Blake Davis held on and won 8-5 over Oliver Pramming and Ignacio Gonzalez on court two for the doubles point.

"USF and their coaches should be congratulated for their season and getting their guys to play hard and complete well," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "Winning doubles really helped us and put us in a good position, especially when Michael came back to win his first set in singles."

In singles play, the Seminoles were able to win three first sets but USF quickly won matches on court one and court four to take the lead back. No. 47 Roberto Cid topped No. 66-ranked Cotrone 6-3, 6-0 while Kalyuzhnny topped Davis, a senior, 6-0, 6-3.

After not winning a game in the first set, Goldin won his second set to force a third. After that, sophomore Marco Nunez won his match 6-4, 1-6, 6-3 to tie the match at 2-2. With three matches left, both teams needed to win two more singles matches to clinch the win.

"Marco played a great match today and had a very good win," said Hultquist. "But it hurt us losing a couple matches quickly."

Goldin was tied 4-4 in the third until his opponent broke his serve and held on to win the match. On court five, Rinaldi was struggling in the third set and was topped 5-7, 6-3, 6-0 by Ignacio Gonzalez as USF won the match 4-2. On court three, junior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez was leading the third set 5-4 when the play was stopped.

"Cristian played very well and was a couple points away from the win," continued Hultquist. "Not to take anything away from USF, but we were beat up with various guys hurt and sick. We're looking forward to next season getting Benjamin (Lock) and Jose (Gracia) back in the line-up, they would have solidified the team this year."
