JACKSONVILLE, FL and ATHENS, GA – The 2014-15 tennis season began at two separate tournaments on Friday, with the Noles compiling a combined 11-3 record between the Southern Intercollegiate in Athens, Ga. and the Bedford Cup in Jacksonville.

"We started the season off on the right foot, going 6-1 at the Southern Intercollegiate and 5-2 at the Bedford Cup," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "Going 11-3 on the first day, after playing against ourselves in practice throughout the summer, is huge. Today will build our confidence moving forward."

At the Southern Intercollegiate event, hosted by the University of Georgia, play is broken up into three draws for singles and two draws for doubles competition. In Division I, No. 13 seed Cristian Gonzalez Mendez defeated Arkansas's Santiago Munoz 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

His second round match against No. 9-seed Rhys Johnson of Vanderbilt begins Saturday at 10:30 a.m.

"I was really happy that Cristian and Marco showed the resiliency to comeback from deficits to win their single matches," said Hultquist. "Marco went down 4-2 in the third set and fought back to win 6-4, while Cristian lost the first set and had to fight hard to take the next two sets and the match."

In Division II singles, Jose Gracia took down Ismael Merino of East Tennessee State, 6-4, 6-2. He next faces No. 5 seed Hampton Drake of Clemson Saturday at 11 a.m.

The only Seminole loss of the day in Athens was redshirt freshman Parker Evertsen falling to Garrett Gordon of College of Charleston, 6-2, 6-1. Evertsen will now play out of the Division III Consolation bracket against Tate Allwardt of Vanderbilt Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

In doubles play, both Seminole teams advanced to the quarterfinals of their respective brackets. In Division I doubles, partners Gonzalez Mendez and Nunez used a first round bye and a second round defeat of Brice Allanic and Zack Lewis of College of Charleston, 8-2, to move on to the quarters. They open play tomorrow at 8 a.m. against the No. 2 seed Paul Oosterbaan and Ben Wagland of Georgia.

Evertsen teamed with Gracia to overcome his singles defeat and win two doubles matches, against Florida Atlantic and Georgia Tech. Against the Owls team of Robert Dubuque and Ignacio Jimenez, the duo won their first round match 8-4, while taking the second round match against Elijah Melendez and Daniel Yun of Georgia Tech, 8-2.

They next face Santiago Munoz and Branch Terrell of Arkansas Saturday at 8 a.m.

The redshirt junior from Parana, Brazil will next play Jose Sangroniz of UCF on Saturday at 9 a.m. Also in the Gray Flight, sophomore Jake Albo fell to North Florida's Lasse Muscheites in three sets, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5.

In doubles competition, both pair of 'Noles advanced to the quarterfinals. The No. 5 seed of Goldin and Albo received a bye in the first round before beating the UNF team of Alberto De Meo and Zach Goldberg in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4.

JACKSONVILLE, FL and ATHENS, GA –The Florida State men's tennis team continued play today in the Southern Intercollegiate and Bedford Cup tournaments.

At the Southern Intercollegiate tournament in Athens, Ga., players dealt with weather delays that pushed the final matches of the night past 10 p.m. The Florida State doubles team of Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Marco Nunez teamed up to defeat the No. 2 seed Paul Oosterbaan and Ben Wagland of host Georgia, 8-4. The win over the No. 26 team in the country faulted the Seminoles into the quarterfinals of the Division I doubles competition and will next face Cole Fiegel and Michael Kay of Georgia Tech Sunday afternoon.

“The weather delays were tough today, because we ended up playing tennis off-and-on for 14 hours,” said Hultquist. “It made for a long day, and Marco playing the final match of the night was difficult. But I was really pleased with him today, beating a Top 100-ranked player in Rhys Johnson is a big deal for him and for our team.”

In Division II singles, No. 5 seed Hampton Drake of Clemson beat Jose Gracia 6-4, 6-4, while Parker Evertsen trails Vanderbilt's Tate Allwardt 3-0 in a match suspended by rain in Division III consolation. The match is set to resume Sunday morning at 9 a.m.

FSU Completes Season Opening Tournaments.
Three Seminole doubles teams reach semifinals between two tournaments.

JACKSONVILLE, FL and ATHENS, GA – The Florida State men's tennis team finished play at two season opening tournaments today, with three of four doubles teams making the semifinals at the Bedford Cup and Southern Intercollegiate events.

At the Southern Intercollegiate tournament in Athens, Ga., hosted by the University of Georgia, the Seminole team of Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Marco Nunez won their opening match of the day, defeating Cole Fiegel and Michael Kay of Georgia Tech, 8-6 in the quarterfinals. The win pushed the duo into the semifinals, where they fell to another Georgia Tech team, No. 3 seed Christopher Eubanks and Nathan Rakitt, 7-5, 6-3.

"It was a lighter day at the Southern Intercollegiate Championships, with only three matches on the docket," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We played well in the doubles quarterfinals, beating a good Georgia Tech team. In the semifinals, Cristian and Marco went up against a hot team that made some plays out on the court. Our doubles effort was strong all weekend, and I'm really proud of the way we played with limited practice this weekend."

In singles competition, redshirt freshman Parker Evertsen completed his suspended match from Saturday against Vanderbilt's Tate Allwardt, falling to the Commodore 6-3, 6-4 in Division III consolation play.

At the Bedford Cup in Jacksonville, hosted by the University of North Florida, Florida State filled out half of the four squads in the semifinals of the doubles draw. Unfortunately, both Seminole duos fell in the semis. Jack Haffey and João Gauer lost to the No. 12 team in the country, Sasha Gozun and Roberto Cid of USF. The hard fought battle was decided in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2. In the other semifinal, Grayson Goldin and Jake Albo fell to Jake Findel-Hawkins and Lasse Muscheites of home squad North Florida, 6-3, 6-4.

"We didn't get the results we wanted today in Jacksonville, but we didn't have much practice with these specific doubles teams, so I'm pleased we made it as far as we did," Hultquist said. "Jack and João played great all weekend, so I'm excited moving forward to see how everybody progresses."

In singles competition, Jack Haffey fought back from an opening-day loss to win the White Flight consolation bracket. He defeated Richard Brej of Florida 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 in the semifinals, and won the bracket after Kevin Gonzales of Stetson forfeited the final.

In the Gray Flight, Gauer lost in the semifinals to Graham Ball of Stetson, 6-4, 6-2. It was his first singles defeat of the weekend. In the Gray consolation, Albo defeated Alvaro Barrero of Bethune-Cookman, 6-3, 6-0.

In the Navy Flight, Goldin took Josh Wardell of Florida to three sets before falling to the Gator, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.

"Overall, I was really happy with how we played this weekend," Hultquist said. "We showed that we can compete some of the best teams in the region, and that is always important for confidence this early in the year. Marco got a win against a Top 100-ranked player on Saturday, and we were able to get some ranked wins in doubles as well, so that is encouraging moving forward."

At the Southern Intercollegiate tournament in Athens, Ga., players dealt with weather delays that pushed the final matches of the night past 10 p.m. The Florida State doubles team of Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Marco Nunez teamed up to defeat the No. 2 seed Paul Oosterbaan and Ben Wagland of host Georgia, 8-4. The win over the No. 26 team in the country faulted the Seminoles into the quarterfinals of the Division I doubles competition and will next face Cole Fiegel and Michael Kay of Georgia Tech Sunday afternoon.

In Division II doubles, Seminoles Parker Evertsen and Jose Gracia fell to the Arkansas team of Santiago Munoz and Branch Terrell, 8-4.

“I was really pleased with our doubles showing today,” said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. “We advanced one team to the quarterfinals [at Southern Intercollegiate] and two teams to the semifinals [at the Bedford Cup].”

Gonzalez Mendez, the No. 13 seed in Division I singles, defeated Luis Valero of Tennessee, 6-4, 6-2, before falling to No. 7 seed Nick Wood of Georgia, 6-3, 6-3. Wood is the No. 89 player in the country entering the 2014 season.

Also playing in Division I, Nunez defeated No. 9 seed and No. 90 ranked Rhys Johnson of Vanderbilt, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5. Nunez fell to Pablo Gor of Armstrong State 3-6, 7-5, 6-0 in his second match of the day, a match that ended around 10:30 p.m.

“The weather delays were tough today, because we ended up playing tennis off-and-on for 14 hours,” said Hultquist. “It made for a long day, and Marco playing the final match of the night was difficult. But I was really pleased with him today, beating a Top 100-ranked player in Rhys Johnson is a big deal for him and for our team.”

In Division II singles, No. 5 seed Hampton Drake of Clemson beat Jose Gracia 6-4, 6-4, while Parker Evertsen trails Vanderbilt's Tate Allwardt 3-0 in a match suspended by rain in Division III consolation. The match is set to resume Sunday morning at 9 a.m.

At the Bedford Cup in Jacksonville, both Seminole double teams advanced to Sunday’s semifinals. Jack Haffey and João Gauer defeated the Stetson team of Loic Blanco and Simon Julin 6-4, 6-1, and will now face the No. 1 combo of Roberto Cid and Sasha Gozun of USF. The USF duo is ranked No. 12 in the country.

For Goldin and Albo, they overcame a one-set deficit to beat the Florida Gulf Coast team of Tianyu Bao and Eduardo Alfonzo, 4-6, 6-4, 10-5 and will now face Jack Findel-Hawkins and Lasse Muscheites of North Florida. Both matches begin at 1:30 p.m.In singles play, Gauer beat Jose Sangroniz of UCF, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1, advancing to the semifinals of the Gray Flight. He faces Graham Ball of Stetson Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. In Gray Flight Consolation, Albo fell to Andres Alfonso of Florida Gulf Coast, 2-6, 6-3, 6-1.

Playing in the Navy Flight, Goldin fell in straight sets to Caio Gomes of North Florida, 6-4, 6-2.


FSU Completes Season Opening Tournaments.
Three Seminole doubles teams reach semifinals between two tournaments.

JACKSONVILLE, FL and ATHENS, GA – The Florida State men's tennis team finished play at two season opening tournaments today, with three of four doubles teams making the semifinals at the Bedford Cup and Southern Intercollegiate events.

At the Southern Intercollegiate tournament in Athens, Ga., hosted by the University of Georgia, the Seminole team of Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Marco Nunez won their opening match of the day, defeating Cole Fiegel and Michael Kay of Georgia Tech, 8-6 in the quarterfinals. The win pushed the duo into the semifinals, where they fell to another Georgia Tech team, No. 3 seed Christopher Eubanks and Nathan Rakitt, 7-5, 6-3.

"It was a lighter day at the Southern Intercollegiate Championships, with only three matches on the docket," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We played well in the doubles quarterfinals, beating a good Georgia Tech team. In the semifinals, Cristian and Marco went up against a hot team that made some plays out on the court. Our doubles effort was strong all weekend, and I'm really proud of the way we played with limited practice this weekend."

In singles competition, redshirt freshman Parker Evertsen completed his suspended match from Saturday against Vanderbilt's Tate Allwardt, falling to the Commodore 6-3, 6-4 in Division III consolation play.

At the Bedford Cup in Jacksonville, hosted by the University of North Florida, Florida State filled out half of the four squads in the semifinals of the doubles draw. Unfortunately, both Seminole duos fell in the semis. Jack Haffey and João Gauer lost to the No. 12 team in the country, Sasha Gozun and Roberto Cid of USF. The hard fought battle was decided in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2. In the other semifinal, Grayson Goldin and Jake Albo fell to Jake Findel-Hawkins and Lasse Muscheites of home squad North Florida, 6-3, 6-4.

"We didn't get the results we wanted today in Jacksonville, but we didn't have much practice with these specific doubles teams, so I'm pleased we made it as far as we did," Hultquist said. "Jack and João played great all weekend, so I'm excited moving forward to see how everybody progresses."

In singles competition, Jack Haffey fought back from an opening-day loss to win the White Flight consolation bracket. He defeated Richard Brej of Florida 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 in the semifinals, and won the bracket after Kevin Gonzales of Stetson forfeited the final.

In the Gray Flight, Gauer lost in the semifinals to Graham Ball of Stetson, 6-4, 6-2. It was his first singles defeat of the weekend. In the Gray consolation, Albo defeated Alvaro Barrero of Bethune-Cookman, 6-3, 6-0.

In the Navy Flight, Goldin took Josh Wardell of Florida to three sets before falling to the Gator, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.

"Overall, I was really happy with how we played this weekend," Hultquist said. "We showed that we can compete some of the best teams in the region, and that is always important for confidence this early in the year. Marco got a win against a Top 100-ranked player on Saturday, and we were able to get some ranked wins in doubles as well, so that is encouraging moving forward."

Florida State Finishes Day 1 of Four-in-the-Fall 6-2.
Jake Albo and Jose Gracia each go 3-0 on the day.

September 26, 2014

TUSCALOOSA, AL - The men's tennis team finished a combined 6-2 in singles and doubles competition at the Crimson Tide Four-in-the-Fall tournament hosted by the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa on Friday.

"We had a strong day again today," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "I was real pleased with what we had on the court and the fight and resolve our guys showed, each playing three matches on the day."

The 'Noles were led by sophomore Jake Albo and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia, who paired to go 2-0 in doubles play, while each won their singles match.

The day began with two doubles matches for each Seminole squad. Albo and Gracia started the day off with an 8-6 win over twin brothers Alex and Ian Van Cott of Tulane. They advanced to face Max Schmidt and Diego Pedraza of Dartmouth in their second doubles match of the day, and again prevailed with an 8-6 win.

The duo will next face the No. 37 doubles team in the country, Andrew Goodwin and Becker O'Shaughnessey of host Alabama. That match will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday.

In singles play, Gracia, playing in the Singles 2 draw, defeated Trey Carter of Samford, 6-4, 6-1. For Hultquist, it was nice seeing Gracia go 3-0 Friday as he returns from injury.

"I was really thrilled with the progress that Jose was showing off the injury," said Hultquist. "Knowing that he can come out and dominate the way he did today is huge for his confidence and for our team."

Meanwhile, Jake Albo beat George Wall of Dartmouth, 6-4, 6-1, to cement his perfect day. Gracia will play his second singles match of the tournament Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. against Rice's David Warren, and Albo will take on No. 48-ranked O'Shaughnessey of Alabama at 10:30 a.m.

The second doubles team, Jack Haffey and Joao Gauer, went 1-1 on Day 1 of the tournament, beating Gian Issa and Robin Riethmueller of Middle Tennessee State, 8-7 (5). They lost the second match in a hard fought tiebreaker against South Alabama, 8-7 (4). The two will face Austin Akers and Fares Kilani of Samford Saturday morning at 9 a.m.

In singles play, Haffey defeated Liam Sullivan of Samford, 7-6 (6), 6-2.

Haffey had to fight off two set points in the first set to secure the victory.

"Jack had an excellent day," said Hultquist. "If he doesn't fight off those two set points in the first, he probably doesn't come out and dominate in the second set the way he did. It was a strong day in singles and doubles for Jack."

Gauer dropped the only singles set of the day for the 'Noles, falling 4-6, 6-1, 6-1 to Danny Kerznerman of Alabama. Gauer took the first set from the Crimson Tide, but struggled in the final two sets playing on the opponent's home court. Kerznerman is viewed as one of the top collegiate newcomers in the country.


Albo, Gracia Lead Noles on Day 2 of Four-in-the-Fall Tournament.
Doubles duo wins first draw of the year for the 'Noles.

September 27, 2014

TUSCALOOSA, AL - The Florida State duo of Jake Albo and Jose Gracia finished off a perfect doubles weekend at the Four-in-the-Fall tournament, winning their draw after beating Andrew Goodwin and Becker O'Shaughnessey of Alabama, 8-3. The two went 3-0 over two days at the tournament hosted by the University of Alabama.

"Jake and Jose winning the doubles draw is huge for us," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "Those two guys came together and played great for us the first two days in Alabama, and its great to see them beat one of the home-town teams to win the draw."

The other doubles match of the day featured Seminoles Jack Haffey and João Gauer. The pair beat Samford's Austin Akers and Fares Kilani, 8-2, and finished the doubles draw 2-1.

In singles action, Albo, Gracia, and Gauer each played two matches, combining to go 2-4 on the day. Albo lost his only match of the weekend against No. 48-ranked O'Shaughnessey of Alabama, 6-2, 6-2, but recovered and ended the day by beating Robin Riethmueller of Middle Tennessee State, 6-0, 6-2.

Gracia started the day with a three-setter against David Warren of Rice, beating the Owl 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. Combining singles and doubles, Gracia started the tournament 5-0 before dropping his final match of the day, 6-3, 6-3, to Nikko Madregallejo of Alabama.

Gauer lost both matches on the day, falling to Alex Van Cott of Tulane and Christian Coetzee of UAB by identical 6-2, 6-4 scores.

After completing doubles play with Gauer, Haffey dropped the first set against Andrew Goodwin of Alabama, 6-3, before having to withdraw from the remainder of the tournament due to illness.

In Sunday's tournament finale, each Seminole will play one singles match.


Albo Leads 'Noles on Final Day of Four-in-the-Fall tournament.
Sophomore wins singles match, finishes 6-1 on the weekend.

September 28, 2014

TUSCALOOSA, AL - The Florida State men's tennis team finished play in this weekend's Four-in-the-Fall tournament hosted by the University of Alabama, capped by the superb play of sophomore Jake Albo.

The Plantation, Fla., native won the Doubles 2 draw on Saturday with playing partner Jose Gracia, going 3-0 in the bracket. Albo also went 3-1 in singles play playing out of the Singles 2 draw, his only loss coming against the No. 48-ranked player in the nation, Becker O'Shaughnessey of Alabama. He rebounded from that loss to win his final two matches of the weekend, including Sunday's 6-2, 6-1 victory over Gian Issa of Middle Tennessee State.

"Jake is a bright spot for us," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "Going 6-1 overall is a big deal, and his only loss was to a Top 50 player in the country. He was able to show the consistency over the past three days that we really sought going into this season and we look for him to keep it up moving forward and into the spring season."

Gracia, a redshirt freshman that lost time last season due to injury, continued to improve upon his return to the court. In addition to winning the doubles draw with Albo, he won the first two matches in singles competition on Saturday before falling to O'Shaughnessey on Sunday, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2. In all, Gracia finished the Crimson Tide tournament with a 5-2 record over singles and doubles play.

Sunday's final result saw Stuart Kenyon of Alabama defeat Joao Gauer, 6-4, 6-4. After going 2-1 in doubles play with Jack Haffey, who had to pull out of the tournament after a Saturday illness, Gauer came up short in four singles matches and finished the weekend with a 2-5 record.

"Our doubles play was a huge revelation for us," Hultquist said. "Both duos played really well, really strong tennis. The energy that Jose and Jake brought in their three matches was a big deal. Jack played well until his illness caught up with him on Saturday, but he was another positive part of our team this weekend."

Six 'Noles Get Wins at Clay Court Event.

October 30, 2014

KISSIMMEE, FL – The Seminole men's tennis team saw six of eight players tally at least one win on Day 1 of the 2014 USTA Collegiate Clay Court Invitational presented by VISIT FLORIDA, highlighted by four 'Noles making it to the Round of 32 in the singles draw.

"With as strong as the competition is here, I think we had some really strong matches today," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "Jose [Gracia] had a big win over Auburn, and Cristian [Gonzalez Mendez] played a great clay court opponent and fought back from being down 5-3 and 5-2 to win in straight sets."

Along with victories from Gracia and Gonzalez Mendez, the Garnet and Gold got play-in singles victories by Jack Haffey and Parker Evertsen. In the first round of the main draw, Florida State scored victories from its top four players, redshirt junior No. 4-seed Benjamin Lock (7-5, 6-0 over Graham Ball of Stetson); redshirt senior No. 7-seed Gonzalez Mendez (7-6 (5), 7-5 over Diego Vives of Princeton); junior No. 9-16 seed Marco Nunez (6-3, 3-6, 6-4 over Jordan Belga of Florida); and redshirt freshman Gracia (6-4, 6-4 over Petar Tomic of Auburn). Gracia's match was played on the Stadium Court at the ESPN Wide World of Sports at Disney.

In doubles action, the No. 1-seeded team of Lock and Nunez, ranked 10th in the country in the ITA preseason rankings, played the first match of the day, also on the Stadium Court and live on ESPN3. They advanced to the quarterfinals of the Doubles A Draw with an 8-2 win over the UCF team of Francesc Aulina and Reese Acree.

"With us hosting this event, it's something we're working hard to do is promote our sport on television," said Hultquist. "Obviously, Ben and Marco are really good and the exposure for those two, our program and collegiate tennis on ESPN3 is huge. We're glad that the Wide World of Sports let us do this and appreciate the support from the USTA, VISIT FLORIDA, and Florida Hospital."

In doubles action at Grand Cypress Racquet Club in Orlando, Gracia and Gonzalez Mendez teamed up for an 8-4 victory over Manuel Belda and Juan Troglia of South Alabama.


Two Noles Pairs Advance to Doubles Semifinals.

October 31, 2104

KISSIMMEE, FL – The No. 1 doubles seed of Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez of Florida State continued to rack up the wins this season and advanced to the semifinals of the USTA Collegiate Clay Court Invitational presented by VISIT FLORIDA.

The pairing beat the Princeton team of Josh Yablon and Diego Vives, 8-6 on Center Court at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Lock and Nunez won on Center Court Thursday on a match shown on ESPN3.

The Seminoles No. 2 doubles team of Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Jose Gracia won the final match of the day, an 8-7 battle against Matt Barry and Alex Fennell of Penn State.

"We're excited to have two teams in the doubles semifinals," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "One of the things we've always wanted to do is come down here and win a title, and we've got two opportunities to do that this weekend."

In singles play, the 'Noles advanced four players on Thursday to Friday's singles Round of 32, but couldn't maintain it's momentum as all four players fell before Saturday's semifinals. In consolation matches, the Seminoles went 4-0 and won three matches in the Round of 32.

Lock, the No. 4 seed and No. 79 player in the country, beat Yablon in the second round, 6-1, 6-2, to begin the day. After a layoff during the middle of the day, Lock took the court for the third round against Chase Perez-Blanco of Florida. He took the first set against the Gator, 6-3, but lost the final two sets, 6-3, 6-1.

Like Lock, No. 7-seed and No. 103-ranked Gonzalez Mendez and Gracia won their second round matches and took the first set of their third round matches before coming up short against tough competition.

Nunez, who also advanced to Friday's Round of 32, lost in his first match of the day against USC's Nick Crystal. USC is the defending men's team national champion and advanced four players to Saturday's quarterfinals.

The Seminoles consolation matches involved four players, highlighted by sophomore Jack Haffey, who beat George Cartledge of Virginia Tech 6-0, 6-0, the first time in his two seasons with the 'Noles that he dropped a double-bagle.

Florida State also got consolation match wins from Joao Gauer (4-6, 6-3, 1-0 (10-6) over USC's Tanner Smith), Jake Albo (7-5, 6-3 over Clemson's Alejandro Augusto), and Parker Evertsen (1-6, 7-6, 1-0 (10-8) over Columbia's Richard Pham.

"It was a big win for him, probably his biggest win in college," Hultquist said about Evertsen. "Jack also had a huge win, what might have been his best win in college as well. Winning all four consolation matches is huge for all four of those guys confidence, because this field has some real good players."


All-Seminole Doubles Final Highlight of Sunday's ESPN3 Coverage.

November 1, 2014

KISSIMMEE, FL – The Florida State men's tennis program will secure its first doubles championship on Sunday after the 'Noles No. 1-seed Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, the No. 10 team in the country, and Jose Gracia and Cristian Gonzalez Mendez won their semifinal matches at the 2014 USTA Collegiate Clay Court Invitational presented by VISIT FLORIDA.

Lock and Nunez, looking to build on last season's success that saw the pair win the ITA Southeast Regionals and rise as high as No. 4 in the country before an injury to Lock, defeated the University of Florida's Chase Perez-Blanco and Jordan Belga 6-0, 6-4. They will take on Seminole teammates Jose Gracia and Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, 6-3, 6-4 winners over Joseph Van Dooren and Petar Tomic of Auburn. Both teams are looking for its first tournament victory of the season.

"It makes it easy for me because I can just sit in the stands and watch because I won't get out and coach one team against the other," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said about the All-FSU affair. "We know we're going to win a title, which is great, because we take a lot of pride in our doubles and how we play."

It is the second and third time a Seminole team has made the doubles finals, following Andres Bucaro and Michael Rinaldi in the Garnet doubles draw in 2012.

Gonzalez Mendez is looking for his second victory at the tournament after winning the Garnet singles draw in 2012 with a three-set win over The Citadel's David Orces.

Earlier Saturday, four Seminoles played consolation matches at Grand Cypress Racquet Club. Two 'Noles, Jack Haffey and Joao Gauer, won their final match of the tournament. Haffey took down Kevin Bondar of Miami in three sets, 6-4, 6-7 (1), 1-0 (10-1). It was Haffey's third win in as many days and follows Friday's double-bagel against George Cartledge of Virginia Tech.

For the redshirt junior Gauer, he also won for the second time this weekend on Saturday, recovering from a first set loss against Arjun Watane of UCF to beat the Knight 4-6, 6-4, 1-0 (11-9).


Lock, Nunez Prevail in All-FSU Final to win Doubles Title.

November 2, 2014

KISSIMMEE, FL – The final day of the 2014 USTA Collegiate Clay Court Invitational presented by VISIT FLORIDA ended in thrilling fashion Sunday, as the men's doubles championship was decided between two Seminole duos. The three-set tiebreaker was won by top seed Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez over Jose Gracia and Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, 7-6 (8), 4-6, 1-0 (10-8). The No. 10-ranked team in the country, Lock and Nunez rallied from 7-4 down in the tiebreaker to nab the Seminoles first championship of the fall in the final event before dual matches begin in January.

"It was a great match all round," the redshirt junior Lock said. "Jose and Cristian played really well and forced us to play our best. It was a competitive match and is a tribute to the program and the coaches having two doubles teams in the final."

"I was pleased with the level of play in the finals," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "All four guys played well. I liked the competitive nature of the match. This is hopefully a precursor to how good we can be in the spring in our doubles match-ups."

Over the four-day tournament, the Seminoles went 15-10 in singles play, including No. 4-seed Lock, No. 7-seed Gonzalez Mendez and Gracia reaching the Round of 16. All eight 'Noles in the tournament had at least one singles win in the event, and six players had two or more. Jack Haffey, who won the play-in round on Thursday and consolation matches on Friday and Saturday, led the team with a 3-1 record.

In doubles action, Florida State went 7-3, including both finalists in Sunday's final played on the Stadium Court at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.

All three men's finals (singles and doubles A & B) were won by ACC players - Clemson's Hunter Harrington, the No. 1-seeded singles player, took down Nick Crystal of USC in the final, Lock and Nunez won the doubles A draw, and Georgia Tech's Eduardo Segura and Carlos Benito won the Doubles B draw against Princeton's Tom Colautti and Zack McCourt.

The Clay Court Invitational, in its third year, is the largest college clay court event in the country. The 2014 tournament featured over 150 athletes from 29 programs in men's and women's draws. Hultquist hopes to see continued growth for the tournament in future years.

"We're getting great feedback from coaches around the country who came and spent the weekend with us," Hultquist said. "People want to come back and in the future we're looking forward to growing the relationship with the Wide World of Sports, Visit Florida, and the Florida Hospital in putting on the Clay Court Invitational."

Noles Open Season with Two Victories.
No. 35 FSU defeats South Alabama and No. 70 St. John's in Tallahassee.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The 35th-ranked Florida State men’s tennis team opened the 2015 season Saturday with victories over South Alabama and 70th-ranked St. John’s during the first day of the Seminole Tournament at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee.

The 2015 season began with a 4-1 decision over the Jaguars in the first match of the Seminole Tournament, which consisted of an eight-team field and five ranked teams, highlighted by the Seminoles No. 35-mark.

South Alabama took the opening doubles point with victories on Court 1 and Court 3, including a win over the Seminoles No. 24 doubles tandem of Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez. Needing to secure four singles points, Florida State swept singles matches with Lock getting redemption on Court 1 with a 6-3, 6-4 match-clinching victory over No. 113 Daniel Leitner.

No. 99 Nunez, the Seminoles only ranked singles player to begin the spring season, won on Court 2, 6-2, 6-0.

Junior Michael Rinaldi returned from a wrist injury that cost him the fall season, looking strong in doubles with sophomore Jake Albo and dominating in singles action with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over the Jaguars Tim Srkala on Court 3.

Head coach Dwayne Hultquist was pleased with the results of the morning, particularly Rinaldi and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia, a straight set winner on Court 5.

“I really liked Jose all day, he kind of dominated both matches,” Hultquist said. “That was really good to see. I thought Michael Rinaldi played really well in the morning. He’s coming off injury and I didn’t want to overload him in his first tournament of the year.”

The victory was the 14th consecutive season-opening victory for Florida State and moves Hultquist’s record in openers to 15-1.

After defeating South Alabama earlier in the day and advancing in the winner’s bracket, the ‘Noles faced St. John’s for the first time in school history. The Red Storm, ranked No. 71 to open the season by the ITA, faced a Florida State team determined to notch the doubles point that it squandered in the opener versus the Jaguars.

The doubles point was won in quick fashion with victories by Lock and Nunez on Court 1 and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia and senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez on Court 2, 6-1 and 6-2, respectively.

The third duo, true freshmen and Tallahassee natives Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, played on Court 3 during both the morning and afternoon matches. The newcomers were leading 4-2 when the match was clinched by Gracia and Gonzalez Mendez.

In singles, Courts 4, 5, and 6 were the winners for the Seminoles, including victories from both Whitehurst brothers in clinching the match for FSU. Terrance won on Court 5 with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over St. John’s Freddy Ruiz, and Terrell clinched a 2-0 season start for the Seminoles with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Vasili Caripi on Court 6. Both wins were the first in college for the pair who enrolled at Florida State earlier this week.

“Terrance and Terrell have had a lot of success in doubles – they’ve played with each other their whole lives and they can make plays,” Hultquist said. “We still have some work to do, obviously, but it was nice to see them come in and get some wins today.”

Gracia continued a strong day and got the Seminoles on the singles scoreboard with a 6-3, 6-3 win over M.J. Every.

Noles Topple Pioneers, win Seminole Tournament.
No. 35 Seminoles take down Pioneers, 4-1, to finish undefeated during opening weekend.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State’s men’s tennis team capped a perfect opening weekend with a 4-1 win over Denver on Sunday afternoon in the finals of the Seminole Tournament held at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee.

Florida State opened the match winning the doubles point, defeating the Pioneers on Courts 2 and 3. Senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia won on Court 2, 6-4, for their second doubles win of the weekend. True freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst won on Court 3, 6-2, the first collegiate doubles win for the pair.

“Denver was a very competitive team, a team that I expect to make the NCAA Tournament,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “We played a good match today. It was the best match we played this weekend. The doubles point was important for us to get off to a good start. It set the tone for the rest of the match.”

In singles play, No. 99 Marco Nunez took down Denver’s Alex Gasson, 6-1, 6-3, on Court 2 in the first singles match completed. The junior’s victory helped fuel the ‘Noles throughout the remainder of the singles draw.

“Denver is a really good team that I think will be pretty good this season,” Nunez said. “I was happy that I could keep the momentum going for our team after winning the doubles point.”

Fellow junior Michael Rinaldi, in his first action since last May after sustaining an injury in the fall, won 6-2, 6-3 over Denver’s Diogo Rocha and opens the season 2-0 in singles play.

“I worked really hard to get back on the court,” Rinaldi said. “Rehabbing my wrist and getting back in shape during the fall was important. The guy I was playing today was good but I tried to play my game and dictate the match, and when I did that I played really well.”

For the second match in a row, the Seminoles clinched the match on the back of Terrell Whitehurst, who closed out the day with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Aidan Talcott.

“(Terrell) clinched two matches, but the way that he clinched those matches was important,” Hultquist said. “He finished it out in convincing fashion. He wasn’t waiting for his opponent to make errors, he was playing aggressive and that’s what we want to see.”

Redshirt junior Benjamin Lock, playing on Court 1, was looking for a second consecutive victory over a ranked opponent after knocking off No. 113 Daniel Leitner on Saturday. Facing No. 64 Henry Craig, Lock dropped the first set 6-4 before fighting back from a 5-1 hole to tie it at 5-all in the second set when the match was clinched in the ‘Noles favor.

Noles Take Down Florida Gulf Coast, Troy to Remain Undefeated.
Senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez notches his first two singles victories of the year.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The No. 35 Florida State men’s tennis team pushed its season record to a perfect 5-0 with victories Saturday afternoon over Florida Gulf Coast and Troy in the Seminole Quad held at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee. In its history, the Seminoles are now 3-0 against Florida Gulf Coast, beating the Eagles each of the past three seasons, and 8-0 against Troy in a series that dates to FSU’s first season in 1948.

“Everyone got a little better this week,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “We’ve gotten off to a good 5-0 start and I’m pleased with that and that we’ve only dropped two points in that stretch of five matches. We’ve got ground to make up, but I’m pleased.”

In doubles, senior captain Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia notched the clinching point on Court 2 with a 6-1 victory over brothers Andres and Eduardo Alfonzo. The victory moved Gonzalez Mendez and Gracia to 3-0 as a pair on the season after sitting out the opener against South Alabama.

Freshman twins Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst stormed out to a convincing 6-0 win over FGCU’s Austin Bates and Michael Beiler on Court 3.

In singles action, the ‘Noles took each of the three points decided to secure the win. On Court 1, redshirt junior Benjamin Lock swept Jordi Vives, 6-3, 6-3, in a match that pitted players ranked in previous seasons.

“We had a really good week of practice,” Lock said. “We worked on things that we needed to improve on from last week’s tournament and we all knew that FGCU and Troy were really good teams. We wanted to defend our house and take care of business and play as best as we could.”

In similar fashion, Gonzalez Mendez won his first singles match of the season with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Ricky Ventura, while Gracia moved to 3-0 in singles action with a 6-3, 7-6 (6) straight set victory. Combined between singles and doubles, Gracia leads the team with six victories.

After dropping the doubles point in the season opener against South Alabama, the Seminoles have now won four consecutive, including against both the Eagles and Trojans on Saturday.

Against Troy, the Court 1 pair of Lock and junior Marco Nunez, the 24th-ranked team in the country, made quick work of Giovani Samaha and Andre Baldo, 6-1. The clinching point came from the Whitehurst brothers, who closed out on Court 3 with a 6-4 win. The win was the third consecutive for the pair after falling on opening day against South Alabama.

In singles action, Lock and Gonzalez Mendez picked up a second singles win each on the day, while Terrance Whitehurst rebounded from a singles defeat last weekend to fight through a tough first set and clinch the match for FSU, 7-5, 6-0.

“Cristian was a lot stronger this week,” Hultquist said. “He was arguably our best point last year, and today he looked sharp getting his two wins in pretty convincing fashion. For Terrance, it was good for him to get a win today and reverse last week’s loss. That confidence moving forward will be huge for him.”

“This is a big weekend for National Indoors,” Hultquist said. “With big name teams like Michigan and Texas, that’s going to be a challenge. We need to continue to get better for that, so this stretch is a good opportunity for us and we need to get ready for it.”

Florida State Beats Michigan, Advances to Regional Finals.
The 4-0 win over the Wolverines sets FSU against Texas.

AUSTIN, TX – The 34th-ranked Seminoles (6-0) beat the No. 42 Michigan Wolverines (1-1) 4-0 Saturday at the Weller Tennis Center in Austin, Texas in the first match of the ITA Kickoff Weekend. The ‘Noles won the doubles point and singles victories on Courts 4-6 to remain undefeated and advance to face No. 9 Texas on Sunday.

Florida State opened the match winning the doubles point, highlighted by 24th-ranked Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez on Court 1 taking down Michigan’s Kevin Wong and Tyler Gardiner, 6-1. On Court 3, freshman brothers Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst fought back from a 3-3 tie to knock off Carter Lin and Runhao Hua, 6-3, in the deciding match after Michigan took a win on Court 2. The Noles have now won five consecutive doubles points after falling in the opener against South Alabama. The Whitehurst brothers lead the team with a 4-1 doubles record in the spring season.

“The doubles match was 1-all and 3-3 on Court 3,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Terrance and Terrell did a really good job of breaking up 4-3 and did a good job serving it out for the win, and that was huge.”

In singles play, the Seminoles topped the Wolverines at the bottom of the order, notching wins on Courts 4 through 6, including a pair of victories from underclassmen. Redshirt freshman Jose Gracia knocked off Lin in straight sets, 6-2, 6-3, and moved his singles record to 4-0 in the spring. On Court 6, sophomore Jake Albo fought back from a first-set loss against Davis Crocker to clinch the match for the Noles and notch his first win of the spring, 1-6, 6-1, 6-4.

“Jake had a lot of adversity in the first set,” Hultquist said. “The first game, he had four break points and didn’t break, in the third he had two break points, and he lost a serve on a deuce point and before he knew it, he lost the set 6-1. It was great for Jake to clinch. He was down 4-2 in the third set and won the last four games to finish it off for us.”

The first singles win for Florida State came on Court 4, with senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez beating Wong in straight sets, 6-2, 6-0.

With the win, the Seminoles evened the all-time series against the Wolverines at 4-4, with all four wins coming under Hultquist.

Florida State won the doubles point and was in a third-set with the match even at 3-3 and a chance to win before coming up short.

“That was a great college match played by both teams today,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “It was very well played. They are clearly a Top 10 team, maybe better. It was a good effort on our part, but it stinks because we had a chance to win.”

The match opened with FSU’s 24th-ranked doubles team, juniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, needing just 20 minutes on Court 1 to beat 51st-ranked Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen, 6-1. It was the second victory for the pair on the weekend after beating Michigan on Saturday.

In a similar fashion, freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst broke a 1-1 tie with a 6-3 victory on Court 3 over Adrien Berkowicz and John Mee. The freshmen are now a team-best 5-1 in doubles play on the season.

“Marco and Ben set a really good tone and dominated that match against a great team, one of the better doubles teams in the country,” Hultquist said. “I was pleased with how we started and finished doubles with the Whitehurst’s. They got a break and then pulled away for the win. It was nice to go into singles with the lead.”

In singles play, Texas won four of the six matches in the most exciting match of the season for the Seminoles. The back-and-forth match saw Texas tie it early on Court 6 with John Mee’s 6-2, 6-1 win over Terrance Whitehurst, before FSU retook the lead at 2-1 with Jose Gracia defeating Michael Riechmann on Court 5, 6-3, 6-4. Gracia leads the team with a 5-0 singles record, four of which have come on Court 5.

“Jose had a really good weekend, winning both matches pretty convincingly,” Hultquist said. “It hurt his development last year when he was out with the stress fracture, and it took a while this fall to get him back in shape. He’s worked hard to get in better shape - we have a long way to go on his game, but he has played really well so far this spring.”

Down 2-1, Texas used points on Courts 1 and 2 from their ranked players to take a 3-2 lead over the Seminoles. No. 13 Soren Hess-Olesen beat Lock on Court 1, 6-2, 6-3, while No. 48 Adrien Berkowicz beat No. 99 Nunez, 6-3, 6-3. The losses were the first of the season in singles action for both players.

Needing to win both of the remaining matches, Florida State saw its two athletes that defeated the Longhorns last season left on the court. Junior Michael Rinaldi and senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez recorded the only two Seminole points last season in a 5-2 loss at Texas. This season, both players won the first set and were looking to clinch the match for FSU.

Rinaldi finished off Glasspool on Court 3 by a 7-5, 6-4 margin. Hultquist says the win over Glasspool, a player who has been ranked for most of his career and played higher on the depth chart for the Longhorns last season, is possibly the best of Rinaldi’s collegiate career.

Tied at 3-3, Gonzalez Mendez was surrounded by fans on one side of the court and teammates on the other. The match was decided in the Longhorns’ favor on Court 4 when Nick Naumann took a three-set decision over Gonzalez Mendez, 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-1. Tied at 5-5 in the second set, Naumann took the next seven games to lead 5-0 in the final set before Gonzalez Mendez got on the board, and finished it off serving as Texas advanced to the ITA National Indoors in Chicago.

Seminoles Roll No. 44 Alabama on the Road.
FSU overcame dropping the doubles point to move to 7-1 on the season.

TUSCALOOSA, AL – A week after dropping a 4-3 thriller at ninth-ranked Texas, the Seminoles were on the road again Saturday against another ranked opponent. This time, the 33rd-ranked Seminoles (7-1) prevailed at No. 44 Alabama (2-3) 4-2 Saturday afternoon at the Roberta Alison Baumgardner Tennis Facility in Tuscaloosa. For the second time this season, Florida State had to work out of a 1-0 hole after dropping the doubles point.

“Alabama is a program on the rise with a young team and coaching staff,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Getting a win today, on the road and after dropping the doubles point, is a big win for our team.”

The match began with the Crimson Tide seizing the early momentum, notching the doubles point with wins on Courts 1 and 3. It was only the second time this season, and first since opening day, that Florida State dropped the doubles point. No. 24 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez fell to Alabama’s Korey Lovett and Becker O’Shaughnessey, 6-4, while the Whitehurst brothers, Terrance and Terrell, lost to the Crimson Tide’s Danny Kerznerman and Andrew Goodwin, 6-3. Playing doubles as a pair for the first time this season was redshirt freshman Jose Gracia and junior Michael Rinaldi.

“Alabama played great doubles,” Hultquist said. “They outplayed us and they deserved to win that point. They came out fired up and were the better team.”

Needing to win on four of six courts for the win, the Seminoles won on Courts 5 and 6 in straight sets and went to three sets on the remaining four. Nunez, the Seminoles one ranked player entering the spring season at No. 99, dropped the first set before rallying back to avenge the doubles loss against Lovett, winning 0-6, 6-3, 6-2. Gracia next won on Court 5 in a second set tiebreak, taking down Sean Donohue 6-3, 7-6 (6), and Terrell Whitehurst won on Court 6, 7-5, 6-4, over Goodwin.

Leading 3-1, senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez lost on Court 4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 against Kerznerman, his second three-set loss in as many matches. In the first set, Gonzalez Mendez went down 0-4 before winning the next six games.

Just one point away from the win, Florida State had Lock and Rinaldi remaining on the courts. Fighting for the clinching point, Lock served out at love for the win over O’Shaughnessey, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. Rinaldi finished the third set leading 30-0 at 5-4.

“We were fortunate that Jose and Terrell won in straight sets,” Hultquist said. “Everything else went three sets. By battling back on the sets that we lost, from Ben and Marco, that changed the complexion of the match because it gave us more options. It gave us more opportunities because sometimes the match gets away from you and you lose hope. Today, we gave ourselves hope.”

‘Noles Drop Close Match to Gators, 4-2.
FSU beat two ranked doubles teams; Gonzalez Mendez picked up singles point.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 32 Florida State (7-2) fell to rival No. 14 Florida (5-2) 4-2 Friday evening at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee. The highlight of the match for the Seminoles was winning the doubles point, and beating two ranked duos to secure an early lead in front of a standing-room only crowd for a match that aired nationally on ESPN3.

“It was a great college match,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “It could have gone either way, and unfortunately we lost. The atmosphere was great – it shows how entertaining a college match can be. For us being the first ones to air on ESPN3 and kind of start that, this was a great match.”

Redshirt junior Benjamin Lock and junior Marco Nunez, ranked 24th in the country, made quick work of No. 32 Diego Hidalgo and Gordon Watson, 6-0. The win was the fifth of the year and second against a ranked opponent for the duo. The other pair to play in all nine matches this season, freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, clinched the match on Court 3 with a 6-3 win over No. 43 Oliver Landert and Joshua Wardell. The ranked win was the first of the Whitehurst brothers’ career at Florida State.

“We won the doubles comfortably at (Court 1),” Hultquist said. “Terrance and Terrell won by two breaks. That was a dominant win for us to start the match.”

In singles action, Florida State quickly moved to a 2-0 lead over the Gators with senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez defeating Oliver Landert in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4. The win was the second for Gonzalez Mendez in as many seasons over Florida after last year’s victory over Hidalgo in Gainesville.

The next four points were all tightly contested, and all went to the Gators as they clinched the win over the ‘Noles for the eighth consecutive time. Playing on Court 4 for the first time since the season-opening tournament, Gracia fell to Watson, 6-4, 7-6 (4). On Court 6, Terrell Whitehurst fell to the Gators’ Chase Perez-Blanco, 7-5, 6-4. The losses were the first of the season for both Gracia (6-1) and Whitehurst (3-1).

With the match tied and Courts 1-3 to be decided, all three went to a third set. On Court 3, junior Michael Rinaldi fought hard in the second set to get to the deciding third, but his comeback bid ran out of gas as he fell 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.

Trailing for the first time at home since dropping the doubles point on opening day against South Alabama, FSU had Lock and Nunez still to play. Both players powered through and used the standing-room only crowd to their advantage, with each facing potential match points at various times in the third set. Eventually, No. 99 Nunez fell to No. 60 Hidalgo, 7-5, 6-7 (4), 7-5. When the match was decided, Lock led No. 34 Lipman 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-6 (3-0) in the tiebreaker.

Both Seminole losses this season have come against Top 15 opponents after last month’s loss at No. 9 Texas, 4-3.

”There are a lot of teams in college that are pretty close,” Hultquist said. “Obviously, when you play Top 10 teams and you’re right there to win, it shows that you could be a Top 10 team. Certainly, you’ll have those opportunities later in the year with all the teams we play in the ACC.”

The loss dropped the Seminoles to 7-2 on the year and 5-1 at home. The Gators improved to 5-2 on the year.

Seminoles Move to 9-2 After Beating Cougars, Rattlers.
FSU goes a combined 12-1 against College of Charleston and Florida A&M.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 32 Florida State (9-2) spent Valentine’s Day knocking off the College of Charleston (4-2) and Florida A&M (0-5) Saturday afternoon in Tallahassee. The first match of the day, against the Cougars, was held outdoors at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center, while the nightcap against the Rattlers was held at the Indoor Tennis Facility.

"I was pleased with some of our guys that got their first wins," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "I like how Jack (Haffey) clinched the FAMU match for us today. Jake Albo played really well this weekend, as did Terrance Whitehurst. I was pleased with how they were striking the ball."

No. 32 FSU 5, College of Charleston 1
The match against College of Charleston was the first against the Cougars in school history, and the Seminoles made quick work of the foe from South Carolina. Opening with singles for the first time this season, Florida State raced out to a 5-0 lead, including the clinching point from redshirt junior Benjamin Lock on Court 1. Terrance Whitehurst played on Court 6 and was the first off the court, beating the Cougars Franz Sydow, 6-1, 6-1. Shortly thereafter, junior Michael Rinaldi and sophomore Jake Albo finished on Courts 2 and 5, respectively, setting the stage for Lock’s clinching win.

After Lock clinched the win, the match continued with redshirt freshman Jose Gracia winning his team-high seventh singles match, while the lone point for College of Charleston came on Court 4 in Vasily Kichigin’s 6-4, 6-1 win over Terrell Whitehurst.

No. 32 FSU 7, Florida A&M 0
The match against Florida A&M was the first dual match played this season indoors for the ‘Noles. The Seminoles win over the Rattlers moved Florida State’s all-time record against the cross-town foe to 10-0, while the Rattlers have not reached the scoreboard since 2000, a 5-2 FSU win.

The match was the first of the season for three ‘Noles: redshirt freshman Parker Evertsen, sophomore Jack Haffey, and redshirt junior João Gauer. Similar to the College of Charleston match, action began with singles play. Haffey played the first singles dual match of his Seminoles career, knocking off Jason Ulacio 6-3, 6-1 while playing on Court 6. The win clinched the match for the Seminoles, giving the ‘Noles a 4-0 lead at the time. It was the second time in two seasons he scored a win over the Rattlers after getting a doubles victory last year.

Gauer and Evertsen paired together to face Ulacio and Joel Jones in doubles play on Court 3, coming away with a 7-6 (4) loss. It was Evertsen’s first dual match action, singles or doubles, in his career.

The wins moved the ‘Noles record to 9-2 on the season and 7-1 at home.

‘Noles Clip Owls, Wear Out Hatters to Move to 11-2.
FSU drops only one set on the day in two quick matches.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 31 Florida State (11-2) played its final doubleheader this season Friday, knocking off Florida Atlantic and Stetson at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee. The ‘Noles were led by senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, notching wins in both matches on the day and improving to 6-2 in singles play on the season.

No. 31 FSU 4, Florida Atlantic 0
Florida State opened the day with a 4-0 win over Florida Atlantic (4-6) in a match that aired on ESPN3. The win improved FSU’s all-time record against FAU to 15-0, including the past four matches in which the Owls have not recorded a point.

FSU opened scoring with a doubles point for the eighth time this season, sparked by No. 21 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez dropping a 6-0 bagel on Florida Atlantic’s Andrei Morin-Kougacheff and Will Neuner on Court 1. It was the second consecutive bagel for Lock and Nunez after shutting out No. 32 Diego Hidalgo and Gordon Watson of Florida two weeks ago.

Junior Michael Rinaldi and FSU’s lone senior, Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, clinched the doubles point on Court 2, 6-2, over Sean Bacha and Stefan Burnett. It was the first time this season, and seventh over the past two years, that Gonzalez Mendez and Rinaldi paired together, pushing their career record together to 4-3.

In singles play, FSU used three quick points to lock up its third consecutive victory and notch double digit wins for the fourth consecutive season. On Court 3, Rinaldi opened the singles scoring with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Zandrix Acob, and soon after Gonzalez Mendez won on Court 4, 6-4, 6-0, over Sean Bacha. Nunez clinched the match on Court 2 for the ‘Noles, 6-3, 6-4. Florida State took five of the six first sets against the Owls in singles play, and five of the six courts (all except Rinaldi) were toss-ups at 4-3 in the opening set for a match that was completed in less than two hours.

The victories from Gonzalez Mendez and Nunez were the second in as many seasons for each player, while Rinaldi has beaten the Owls each of his three seasons in Tallahassee.

“It was good seeing us dominate the doubles, I thought that was huge,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “We didn’t play as strong at singles as I would have liked. FAU competed well and hung in there; at the end of the first set, there was a lot of tight matches going on. Marco did a good job coming back from an early break, and it was good for Cristian to hit his stride. He looks very confident right now.”

No. 31 FSU 4, Stetson 0
Florida State defeated Stetson, 4-0, to close out Friday’s doubleheader. After freshman twin brothers Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst clinched the doubles point with a 6-2 win over Loic Blanco and Simon Julin on Court 3, the Seminoles closed out the match with three quick singles victories on Courts 1, 4, and 5 to move to 11-2 on the year.

Gonzalez Mendez’s second singles win of the day, a 6-0, 6-3 straight-setter against Blanco, led off the singles scoring. The first set was the second consecutive 6-0 set win for Gonzalez Mendez after closing out the second set against Florida Atlantic by a similar score. Two minutes later, Lock won on Court 1, while soon after sophomore Jake Albo clinched the match on Court 5 with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Julin. In all, the match took just one hour, 39 minutes to complete.

“We played stronger in the afternoon,” Hultquist said. “I was pleased with Terrance and Terrell in the doubles, and of course Ben and Marco played well all day. We had dominating performances from Cristian, Ben, and Jake. I was happy that Jake was able to finish off the match.”

Friday’s matches were played outdoors in cooler temperatures that hovered around the 50 degree all day.

“You’re never going to play great on a day that is really cold, and I think we did a good job in the second match of finishing more points at the net,” Hultquist said.

The Stetson match also capped a stretch where 10 of 13 opponents came to Tallahassee to start the season.

Gonzalez Mendez’s second singles win of the day, a 6-0, 6-3 straight-setter against Blanco, led off the singles scoring. The first set was the second consecutive 6-0 set win for Gonzalez Mendez after closing out the second set against Florida Atlantic by a similar score. Two minutes later, Lock won on Court 1, while soon after sophomore Jake Albo clinched the match on Court 5 with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Julin. In all, the match took just one hour, 39 minutes to complete.

“We played stronger in the afternoon,” Hultquist said. “I was pleased with Terrance and Terrell in the doubles, and of course Ben and Marco played well all day. We had dominating performances from Cristian, Ben, and Jake. I was happy that Jake was able to finish off the match.”

Friday’s matches were played outdoors in cooler temperatures that hovered around the 50 degree all day.

“You’re never going to play great on a day that is really cold, and I think we did a good job in the second match of finishing more points at the net,” Hultquist said.

The Stetson match also capped a stretch where 10 of 13 opponents came to Tallahassee to start the season.

Florida State Falls to No. 2 Oklahoma, 4-0.
All three FSU losses this year have come against Top 15 opponents.

NORMAN, OK – No. 26 Florida State (11-3) lost 4-0 Saturday afternoon against No. 2 Oklahoma (12-1) at the Wadley Indoor Tennis Pavilion in Norman, Okla. It was the third loss this season for the Seminoles, and all three have come against Top 15 teams, including two on the road.

The match, originally scheduled to be played outdoors earlier in the day, was moved inside due to rain and snow in Norman. Entering the match, Oklahoma was 11-0 on the season indoors, while Florida State was just 3-1.

For only the third time this season, the doubles point went to the opponent, and it was the first of those three that the ‘Noles didn’t rebound to win the match. The Seminole duo of Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, No. 29 in the country, fell in the clinching match against the Sooners’ Axel Alvarez and Dane Webb, ranked No. 6 in the ITA rankings. After going up 2-0 early, Lock and Nunez trailed 6-5 on serve when Oklahoma broke to clinch the doubles point.

Oklahoma won on Court 3 over FSU’s Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, 6-3. On Court 2, the ‘Noles Michael Rinaldi and Cristian Gonzalez Mendez paired for just the second time this season to defeat No. 52 Alex Ghilea and Andrew Harris, 6-3. That win helped set the stage for the deciding match on Court 1.

“It was important to get the doubles point,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “We won on Court 2 and lost a deuce point to lose the match on Court 1. That would have given us momentum heading into singles. They came up with some big shots. They hit some winners in that game to break us.”

In singles action, Oklahoma and Florida State split the first set among the six courts, but the Sooners were able to finish off all three courts that they took the opening set on to clinch the match in convincing fashion.

On Court 4, Gonzalez Mendez fell to No. 56 Ghilea, 6-1, 6-2, to give the Sooners a 2-0 lead. Shortly thereafter, Jose Salazar defeated the ‘Noles Terrell Whitehurst on Court 6, 6-4, 6-1, and No. 7 Alvarez knocked off Lock on Court 1, 6-4, 6-3.

When the match was clinched for the Sooners, Nunez had taken the first set against No. 18 Webb on Court 2, Rinaldi was entering a third set against Spencer Papa on Court 3, and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia was up a game in the third set on Court 5 against Florin Bragusi.

“Michael [Rinaldi] won his doubles match and was in the third set in singles play,” Hultquist said. “He played really well, had a great attitude and was playing to win. He played with a high energy, and I felt like he was our bright spot on the court.”

The loss dropped the ‘Noles to 11-3 on the year and 1-2 in true road matches. It was the first match against the Sooners in Norman since 2013, when Florida State beat No. 7 Oklahoma 4-3.

“It’s important that we regroup and have a good week of practice to get ready for Louisville, a ranked team that’s new to the conference that we haven’t played since I’ve been at FSU.”

Seminoles Beat Louisville, Notch Win No. 250 for Hultquist.
Three-hour match clinched by senior Gonzalez Mendez on Court 4.

LOUISVILLE, KY – Braving snow for a second consecutive week on the road against a ranked team, the No. 29 Seminoles escaped No. 33 Louisville with a 4-3 win Friday afternoon at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center. The Florida State win moved the ‘Noles to 12-3 overall and 1-0 in the ACC and snapped the Cardinals (12-3, 0-1) 10-match winning streak.

“Today was a total team effort,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Everyone who played contributed, and our guys off the court did as well in countering the ruckus that Louisville’s crowd brought. Everyone stepped up and I was proud of the team’s results.”

The ACC opener for both teams, and the first ACC match for Louisville in program history after joining from the American Athletic Conference last summer, was a back and forth affair that lasted over three hours in snowy Louisville. In the end, the match was clinched from the Seminoles lone senior, Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, winning in a third-set thriller against Van Damrongsri, 7-5, 6-7 (6), 6-3. After going 11-1 in three-set matches a season ago, it was the first three-set win for Gonzalez Mendez in the dual season in 2015. It also helped erase from his memory a three-set loss earlier this season at No. 9 Texas in the same (3-all) situation.

“It was very similar to Texas,” Gonzalez Mendez said. “Everyone was watching and I started thinking about the Texas match and it motivated me to stay strong and more focused than last time. I learned from what happened out there in Austin.”

Having to deviate from its regular singles and doubles lineup due to the absence of redshirt junior Benjamin Lock, playing in the Davis Cup for his native Zimbabwe, the Seminoles paired redshirt freshman Jose Gracia with junior Marco Nunez on Court 1 so as to maintain the other two teams already in place. The move paid off for Florida State when Nunez and Gracia secured the first win for FSU, 6-2 over Sebastian Stiefelmeyer and Damrongsri. On Court 3, the Seminole doubles victory was clinched by the true freshman duo of Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, who moved to 8-3 in doubles play with a 6-3 win over Pally Ray and Albert Wagner. On Court 2, junior Michael Rinaldi and Gonzalez Mendez trailed 4-3 when the doubles point was clinched.

“Marco and Jose did an unbelievable job of taking control of their court and getting off to a two-break lead,” Hultquist said. “It gained momentum for us. Terrance and Terrell had a battle holding serve when they were up 4-3, but Terrell was able to finish it off.”

In singles play, Louisville quickly tied the score at 1-all when Stiefelmeyer, the No. 5 player in the country, beat Nunez 6-3, 6-3 on Court 1. It was Nunez’s first action at the top of the ladder since the season’s second weekend against Troy, and his first decision in the spot. It was the second consecutive weekend the ‘Noles have faced a singles player ranked in the ITA Top 10, after Lock faced Axel Alvarez of Oklahoma last weekend.

After the Court 1 result, the teams traded victories, including Rinaldi giving the Seminoles a 3-2 lead after defeating 104th-ranked Wagner. It was the third win for Rinaldi against players currently ranked in the ITA standings. In the match against Wagner, Rinaldi fought back from down 4-1 in the first set to win, 7-5, 7-6 (5).

In the clincher, Gonzalez Mendez was up a break, 3-2, and serving trailing 0-40, but came back to hold serve. Hultquist said that point was huge in countering the crowd that was pumped up after Louisville tied the match at 3-all when the Cardinals Chris Simich defeated Terrance Whitehurst by taking the final two sets.

“Today’s win was huge and shows how good we can be” Gonzalez Mendez said. “Playing on the road against a highly ranked team, in our first ACC match of the year without our No. 1 player and coming off a tough loss at Oklahoma, it showed what we’re made of. We played our A-game and this will build confidence for the ACC season.”

The win was No. 250 for Hultquist since taking over the Seminoles before the 1999-2000 season. All of Hultquist’s ‘milestone’ victories have come on the road against ranked teams. It also moved the Seminoles to 3-0 all-time against the Cardinals. It was the first meeting between the two teams since 1987.

Seminoles Drop Close Match at No. 19 North Carolina.
‘Noles claw back from doubles loss to win two singles points.

Chapel Hill, N.C. – Playing outdoors on the road for the first time this season, No. 29 Florida State (12-4, 1-1 ACC) fell to No. 19 North Carolina (13-5, 2-0) 5-2 at the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center in Chapel Hill Sunday afternoon.

With wind gusts over 20 mph throughout the match, the Seminoles held tough against a Top 20 team, but lost for the fourth time in as many tries against higher ranked competition. It was also the first time this season that the Seminoles played in the longer NCAA format, which included doubles played to eight points (instead of six) and advantage scoring, which led to the longest match of the season for Florida State at over four hours.

“Today was a long, hard battle against a really good North Carolina team,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Unfortunately, UNC came out on top, but it was hard played and a really good college tennis match.”

The Tar Heels took the doubles point with wins on Cts. 2 & 3. Junior Michael Rinaldi and senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez fought back from an early 4-1 deficit to tie the match at 6-all on Court 2. The Tar Heels broke serve to take a 7-6 lead, and closed out the match on serve to win 8-6. On Court 3, freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst also fought back from an early 6-1 deficit but fell, 8-5.

With redshirt junior Benjamin Lock out while finishing play in the Davis Cup in Zimbabwe, freshman Jose Gracia again paired with Lock’s normal partner in junior Marco Nunez. The pair faced 34th-ranked Esben Hess Olesen and Oystein Steiro and led 7-6 when the match was decided.

“We started a little slow in doubles,” Hultquist said. “We played well for a while in the middle, but we went down 4-1 on Court 2 and 6-1 on Court 3 before making our runs.”

In singles, Gonzalez Mendez evened the score at 1-all with a 6-3, 6-3 victory on Ct. 4 over Steiro. It was the second singles win of the weekend for Gonzalez Mendez after clinching the 4-3 victory over Louisville Friday evening.

The teams split the next two points, with No. 89 Jack Murray defeating Gracia, 7-5, 7-5, on Court 3, and Terrell Whitehurst winning 6-3, 6-3 on Court 6 over Stuart DePaolo. For Gracia, both sets played out in similar fashion, with the set tied at 5-5 when Murray broke Gracia’s serve to take a 6-5 lead, then held serve for the final margin.

North Carolina took a 3-2 lead with a three-set victory for No. 86 Robert Kelly over Terrance Whitehurst on Court 5, 5-7, 6-3, 6-1. Whitehurst bumped and grinded his way against the ranked Kelly, falling just short in the end in his first match against a ranked opponent.

The match was clinched when No. 81 Clark fought back from a first-set loss to defeat Rinaldi, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4. Rinaldi trailed in the final set 5-1 before rallying back and keeping the Tar Heels on their toes. Rinaldi was looking for his second win of the weekend over a ranked opponent after beating the 104th-ranked player in the country Friday at Louisville.

“Jose had some good points, and had set point a couple times that got away from him,” Hultquist said. “Michael battled back in the third set, and Marco was able to rebound from a first set loss against a Top 30 player. Cristian was great all weekend. Our guys played well today, we just came up short.”

In the end, all of North Carolina’s singles points came from nationally ranked players.

Seminoles Fall on Road at No. 19 Wake Forest.
Gonzalez Mendez wins marathon first-set tiebreaker, 20-18, to highlight match for Florida State.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Florida State (12-5, 1-2 ACC) dropped consecutive matches for the first time this season after a 7-0 loss at No. 19 Wake Forest (11-4, 1-1 ACC) Friday afternoon at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex in Winston-Salem, N.C. The match was moved indoors due to weather and was played using the longer format (doubles points to eight, advantage scoring).

"Wake Forest played a great match and took it to us today," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "We had a little opening in the doubles, but Wake played really well. They benefited from the match getting moved indoors because they had some big servers, and it showed today."

he No. 24 Seminoles started in a hole after losing doubles for the second consecutive match and only the fifth time on the season. Court 1 featured a match-up of ranked pairs, No. 30 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez for Florida State against No. 13 Christian Seraphim and Skander Mansouri of Wake. The home team took the match and clinched the doubles point for the Demon Deacons with an 8-4 win. Lock and Nunez were playing together for the first time in two weeks after Lock spent last weekend playing for his native Zimbabwe in the Davis Cup.

The first doubles match was settled on Court 3, where Romain Bogaerts and Keivon Tabrizi defeated freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, 8-4.

In singles, No. 12 Bogaerts defeated Nunez, 6-3, 6-3, on Court 2, while No. 63 Noah Rubin knocked off Lock in straight sets, 6-4, 6-0, on Court 1.

The Demon Deacons clinched the match on Court 5, when Seraphim won a second-set tiebreaker against Seminole freshman Jose Gracia, 6-1, 7-6 (5).

The highlight of the match was senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, playing singles on Court 4, winning a first-set tiebreaker against No. 69 Jon Ho, 7-6 (20-18). It was the only set the Seminoles won on the day.

"Cristian played a good match," Hultquist said. "He was in a position to win after a marathon first set tiebreak. Jose played well in the second set tiebreaker, he was leading that, but we didn't get the breaks to go our way today."

The loss was the fifth of the season for the ‘Noles, all coming against higher-ranked competition, four of which have come in road matches.

"Playing this many on the road is tough," Hultquist continued. "Last weekend we played well at Louisville and North Carolina. The match Sunday is important because Georgia Tech is ranked and undefeated in conference right now, so we need to end this stretch with a win."

Seminoles End Road Trip with 5-2 Win Over No. 68 Georgia Tech.

ATLANTA, GA – Looking to close a five-match road trip with a victory Sunday afternoon, No. 24 Florida State won the doubles point and got singles victories over two ranked players to secure a 5-2 win over No. 68 Georgia Tech in Atlanta. The Seminoles (13-5, 2-2 ACC) won for the fourth consecutive season over the Yellow Jackets (9-4, 2-1).

Coming off two consecutive losses for the first time this season, the Seminoles struck first, winning the doubles points with victories on Courts 2 and 3. Junior Michael Rinaldi and senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez won 8-5 on Court 2 over Tech’s Christopher Eubanks and Michael Kay. Shortly thereafter, Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst snapped a two-match losing streak with an 8-5 win on Court 3.

In singles, junior Marco Nunez, redshirt junior Benjamin Lock, and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia recorded their first ACC wins of the season as FSU won four of six matches. Nunez opened the scoring with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over the 84th-ranked player in the country, Nathan Rakitt. Rinaldi, ranked No. 79, made the score 3-0 FSU with a 6-2, 6-4 win on Court 3.

The Yellow Jackets closed within 3-1 when Eduardo Segura knocked off Terrell Whitehurst on Court 6, but Gracia clinched the match with a second-set tiebreaker victory, 6-4, 7-6 (3), over Kay.

After clinching, FSU and Georgia Tech split the two remaining courts. Lock rebounded from a first-set loss to defeat No. 66 Eubanks, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, in the only match that went three sets. The final score was decided when Cole Fiegel beat Gonzalez Mendez, 6-4, 7-5, on Court 4.

Sunday’s win means Florida State finishes its five-match road trip with a 2-3 record. All five matches came against ranked opponents, and all three losses came against Top 20 teams, including current-No. 1 Oklahoma.

Men’s Tennis Tames Tigers, 6-1.
FSU overcomes doubles defeat to win all six singles against Clemson.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Playing in Tallahassee for the first time in over a month, No. 27 Florida State improved its record to 14-5 overall and 3-2 in the ACC with a 6-1 victory over No. 64 Clemson Sunday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The ‘Noles dropped the doubles point before rallying to win all six singles points.

“The thing I liked about today was how we came back strong in the singles,” Hultquist said. “Obviously, it was disappointing to lose the doubles point, but we were very quick to grab the momentum in singles play.”

The match began with the Seminoles winning doubles on Court 1 behind 30th-ranked duo Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, 8-5. Lock and Nunez won four of the final five games to break a 4-4 tie and improve to 8-4 in the spring.

Freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst fought back from down 6-2 to tie the Court 3 match at 6-all against Hampton Drake and Christian Harris before the Tiger duo pulled off the 8-6 win. The doubles point was clinched on Court 2 when Luke Johnson and Robert Dudley won the final six games against Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Michael Rinaldi to win 8-6.

In singles play, the Seminoles flexed their muscles in winning all six points against the Tigers. FSU’s lone ranked singles player, No. 79 Rinaldi, evened the score at 1-all with a 6-2, 6-1 takedown of Daffra Sanon on Court 3. After two more wins, on Court 4 (Gonzalez Mendez, 6-3, 6-0) and Court 6 (Terrance Whitehurst, 6-2, 6-3), the match was clinched in the Seminoles favor on Court 2, where Nunez overcame a first-set loss to knock off Alejandro Augusto, 3-6, 6-4, 6-0. The third-set bagel was fueled by a rowdy crowd that Nunez fed off.

“It's always easy whenever you're having a tough day to look upstairs and see the crowd cheering for you,” Nunez said. “It always gives you energy, and with your teammates by your side, they give you a great response, and that's one of the big advantages of playing at home. It's really easy to stay concentrated and energized because you have all these people rooting for you and wanting the best for you.”

With the match already clinched, Florida State completed the singles sweep with Lock’s 7-6 (2), 6-3 win over No. 91 Hunter Harrington. Redshirt freshman Jose Gracia closed the match with a 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (5) win over Luke Johnson on Court 5.

“The set that really established our lead today was Ben winning the first-set tiebreaker against Harrington,” Hultquist said. “That was crucial and gave us five first-set wins. [Harrington] won our event at Disney this year with a field of great players, so we knew he would be good. It’s showing that Ben is getting better and coming along. He controlled the second set and Ben will very soon be showing up in the rankings.”

The win moves the Seminoles to 14-5 on the season, 3-2 in the ACC and 10-1 at home.

“The key thing for us is that we play three matches in three days against good teams,” Hultquist said about this coming weekend. “It’s going to be hard, but we have to utilize our strength of having a lot of really good players.”

Seminoles Dominate Eagles, 6-1.
FSU now 12-0 all-time against Boston College.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 32 Florida State (15-5, 4-2 ACC) beat Boston College 6-1 Friday evening at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee. The win improves the ‘Noles record to 12-0 all-time against the Eagles and pushes its current win streak to three matches.

“Boston College came ready to go tonight,” associate coach Nick Crowell said. “We played a good match and they matched our intensity, especially in some second sets. We were fortunate to get three quick matches to get the win, and the last three on the court were really tough for us.”

Florida State fielded an uncommon lineup Friday, facing the Eagles without half of its regular ladder and with players on Courts 5 and 6 that had played a combined one singles match this spring. The move paid off for the ‘Noles as it allowed one point or fewer to the Eagles for a fifth consecutive meeting.

In doubles, redshirt junior Benjamin Lock and junior Michael Rinaldi paired together for the first time this season, knocking off the Eagles’ Philip Nelson and Conor Mullins, 8-2. Freshman brothers Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst played on Court 2 for the first time and finished off Kyle Childree and Hank Workman by an identical 8-2 score.

“We came out strong at one and two doubles and got up quick,” Crowell said. “Number three did a good job of coming back and pulling ahead as the match moved forward.”

The six singles matches started where the doubles domination ended - Florida State scored first set victories on all six courts. Redshirt junior Joao Gauer, playing in his first singles match of the season, was the first ‘Nole off the court after a 6-1, 6-2 victory on Court 5 over Boston College’s Kent Mukai.

“It had been a while since I had gone out and played my game,” Gauer said. “I did a pretty good job today. I had a good mindset of playing my game and focusing on my court and not what was going on with the team.

“I hit my forehands good and it went well for me.”

No. 90 Rinaldi improved to 9-3 on the season with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Workman on Court 2 and Terrell Whitehurst clinched the match for the third time this season with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Aidan McNulty on Court 3.

The next two matches also went the Seminoles way, with No. 106 Lock winning on Court 1 in straight sets, 6-0, 7-6 (3), over Nelson, and Terrance Whitehurst winning on Court 4 over Childree, 6-3, 4-6, 1-0 (15-13).

The Eagles only victory came on Court 6 with Mullins knocking off Jack Haffey, 6-7 (2), 7-6 (2), 1-0 (4).

The win moved the Seminoles to 15-5 on the season and 11-1 at home, including 2-0 during its current five-match homestand.

‘Noles Edge Dartmouth, 4-3.
Bottom of the ladder leads Florida State to victory.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 32 Florida State (16-5) beat No. 60 Dartmouth (9-8) 4-3 Saturday afternoon on a chilly day at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. Florida State won the doubles point for the second consecutive match and got singles wins from the bottom three spots in the lineup to secure the victory.

“Today showed how important the doubles point really is,” associate coach Nick Crowell said. “We were a few match points down at third doubles, and came through in the clutch to win it. In a 4-3 match, you can see how important that doubles point is.”

Playing the ITA shortened format for the final non-conference match of the season, the Seminoles won the doubles with a 6-2 victory for No. 30 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez on Court 1 over No. 21 Chris Kipouras and Dovydas Sakinis. It was the fourth time this season, and third time this spring, that the duo has knocked off a ranked opponent.

Doubles was clinched from Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst on Court 3 in a 7-5 win over Diego Pedraza and Sam Todd. The twin brothers were down match point multiple times in the match before breaking on consecutive serves, at 5-4 down and 6-5 up, to win the match.

In singles, Florida State raced out to a 3-0 overall lead after senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez won on Court 4, 6-0, 6-3, and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia won on Court 5, 6-3, 6-4.

Dartmouth’s two ranked players, No. 86 Sakinis and No. 91 Kipouras, won the next two matches for the Big Green, with Sakinis winning on Court 1 over No. 106 Lock, 6-4, 6-2, and Kipouras knocking off Nunez on Court 2, 6-3, 2-6, 6-4.

Leading 3-2, the Seminoles were in a pair of three-set battles on the remaining courts: Court 2 between the ‘Noles No. 90 Michael Rinaldi and Ciro Riccardi, and Court 6 between Terrell Whitehurst and Dartmouth’s Todd.

Court 3 ended just before Court 6, with Riccardi beating Rinaldi 6-4, 1-6, 6-4. Whitehurst clinched for the ‘Noles for the second consecutive match and team-high fourth time this season just after Rinaldi’s match with a 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-3 win.

In all, Courts 4-6 were the deciding factor today for the Seminoles.

“Our depth really showed through today, winning at 4, 5, and 6,” Crowell said. “We knew they were going to come in and be strong all the way through the lineup with two ranked players. They came in and did a great job, and I’m just glad we were able to close that match out at No. 6.”

Seminoles Fall to No. 37 Notre Dame, 4-3.
FSU dominates doubles point, beats No. 9 duo in country.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State fell to Notre Dame 4-3 Sunday afternoon to cap a three-match weekend that saw the ‘Noles go 2-1 at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The highlight Sunday for the Seminoles (16-6, 4-3 ACC) was its doubles domination over the Fighting Irish (12-7, 4-3 ACC).

“Notre Dame battled really well,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “They just kept plugging away. There were a lot of matches that changed hands throughout the day. It was fun from a spectator standpoint, but the loss hurts us. They overcame adversity a little better than we did.”

The Seminoles top duo, 30th-ranked Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, scored an 8-4 win over the No. 9 team in the country, Alex Lawson and Billy Pecor. It was the second consecutive match that Lock and Nunez defeated a higher-ranked opponent after beating Dartmouth’s No. 21 duo on Saturday. On Court 3, freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst won by an identical score over Dougie Barnard and Quentin Monaghan.

On Court 2, the Seminole pair of Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Michael Rinaldi were up 7-3 and a point away from upsetting the 22nd-ranked pair Eddy Covalschi and Josh Hagar when the doubles point was won.

“We played really good doubles today,” Hultquist said. “It was one of our better doubles days. They have a couple ranked teams and are really strong there. That was excellent how we played the doubles today, and we played hard.”

In singles, the back and forth match tipped the Fighting Irish’s way after Lawson beat FSU’s Jose Gracia on Court 5, 6-2, 1-6, 7-6 (6). The third set stayed on serve through the tiebreaker, with Lawson eventually closing out for the win and handing the Seminoles only its second loss at home this season.

Singles began with a pair of straight-set victories that both teams split: No. 17 Monaghan beat No. 106 Lock on Court 1, 6-1, 6-0, and No. 90 Rinaldi beat Covalschi on Court 3, 6-2, 6-1. The other four courts all went three sets.

Hagar beat Nunez on Court 2 to overcome a first set loss, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, and Notre Dame took the lead when Kenny Sabacinski beat Terrance Whitehurst on Court 6 in similar fashion, 5-7, 6-4, 6-1.

The remaining two courts, Gracia vs. Lawson and Gonzalez Mendez against Pecor, were simultaneously in third-set tiebreakers. After Lawson finished off Gracia, Gonzalez Mendez beat Pecor to roar back from a sluggish first set to win 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4).

“Cristian was down a set and a break in both the second and third sets,” Hultquist said. “He came back and won the match, and that’s a real positive.”

The loss drops the Seminoles to 16-6 on the season and 4-3 in ACC action. The loss snaps a four-match winning streak for Florida State.

No. 32 Seminoles Top Miami, 7-0.
Florida State has won six consecutive matches against the Hurricanes.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State won 7-0 over Miami Friday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The win for the Seminoles (17-6, 5-3 ACC) capped a five-match home stretch that saw FSU go 4-1 overall and 3-1 against ACC competition. The loss for the Hurricanes dropped Miami’s record to 7-11 and 1-6 in the ACC.

The Seminoles opened the match by dominating the doubles point, led by 30th-ranked Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez. The pair won for their fourth consecutive match, defeating the Canes Kevin Bondar and Wilfredo Gonzalez, 8-3. Twin brothers Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, from Tallahassee, secured the other doubles match with an 8-2 win on Ct. 3 over Bernard Tefel and Henrique Tsukamoto. The win was the Whitehurst’s team-high 13th of the spring.

“I liked that we jumped on them early in the doubles,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “It wasn’t just one break, it was multiple, and we took control of that. We dominated to win at one and three. We’re starting to gain momentum and that’s a bunch of matches in a row that we’ve won the doubles point, and we’re gaining confidence.”

In singles, the Seminoles dropped only one set across six courts. Nunez, a junior who had played primarily on Ct. 2 throughout the season, was dropped to Ct. 3 and dominated Tsukamoto, 6-2, 6-4, to push the Seminole advantage to 2-0. Soon after, redshirt freshman Jose Gracia won 6-4, 6-4 on Ct. 5 over Tefel.

The clincher came on Ct. 6 from Terrell Whitehurst, a 6-4, 6-4 winner over Niclas Genovese. It was Whitehurst’s team-leading fifth clincher this season.

“I liked how we came out in singles,” Hultquist said. “Marco jumped out quick, while Jose was in the middle and Terrell came from behind to all win. We were quickly up breaks on three or four of the courts and got five first sets. We established control of the match at that stage.”

After the match was clinched, senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez won on Ct. 4, 6-3, 6-4, while No. 106 Lock won on Ct. 1, 6-4, 6-4.

The lone set victory for the Hurricanes came on Ct. 2, when Wilfredo Gonzalez won the first set against No. 90 Michael Rinaldi. Rinaldi rallied to win the second set before taking the third-set tiebreaker and the match, 4-6, 6-2, 1-0 (4).

The win was the sixth consecutive for the ‘Noles over the Hurricanes and brings Hultquist’s career mark against the Canes to 14-5 in 16 seasons. Before Hultquist arrived in Tallahassee, the Seminoles had an all-time record of 5-41 against Miami.

It was also only the second 7-0 shutout this season and first against an ACC opponent at home since blanking Clemson in 2010. It was the second straight shutout of the Hurricanes, the first coming in last season’s ACC Tournament first round, a 4-0 win.

Friday’s tilt caps a five-match home stand that saw the Seminoles go 4-1 overall and 2-1 against ranked competition. With two matches remaining in the home schedule, the ‘Noles are 13-2 in Tallahassee.

“It was a good home stand; we’ve been very good at home all year,” Hultquist said. “Tonight was an awesome environment with a lot of people here. Our VIP section was full and we had a crowd from the Special Olympics of Florida. We have a very good home court advantage when we have things humming properly, and tonight it was.”

No. 33 Seminoles Take Down Wolfpack, 5-2
Florida State improves to 18-6 on the year as Terrell Whitehurst clinches again.

RALEIGH, NC – No. 33 Florida State moved to 22-3 all-time against NC State with a 5-2 win over the No. 34 Wolfpack Friday afternoon at the Isenhour Tennis Center in Raleigh. With the win, the Seminoles improve to 18-6 overall and 6-3 in the ACC, while NC State falls to 13-9 and 3-6 in conference.

“NC State is a good program and came in today on a three-match win streak,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Today’s win was big for our confidence and in the ACC standings. It was great to have our lineup gets three ranked singles wins, and we continue to play strong doubles.”

The two pillars of that strong doubles dominance, juniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, won for the fifth consecutive match, 8-3 over Nick Horton and Robbie Mudge. The red-hot duo, ranked 17th in the country, have won five consecutive matches and are 12-4 in doubles on the season.

“Our team stresses the importance of the doubles point, so we’re glad to help the team in that regard,” Nunez said. “[Ben and I] have been working hard with our coaches and teammates over the past month to get better for the ACC and NCAA Tournaments and hopefully become All-Americans.”

In similar fashion, the freshman pairing of brothers Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst have also won five consecutive matches. They clinched the match against the Wolfpack with an 8-3 win on Court 3, and their 14 wins this spring lead the Seminoles.

In singles action, Florida State’s top three players won against ranked opponents. Nunez opened the scoring with a quick 6-1, 6-4 win over No. 92 Simon Norenius. The win was Nunez’s second of the spring against a ranked opponent.

Lock also took down a ranked opponent, defeating No. 66 Mudge on Court 1, 7-5, 6-2. Lock, who fell out of the rankings this week despite defeating four ranked opponents this spring, leads the ‘Noles with 25 combined singles and doubles victories this season.

The match was clinched, unsurprisingly, by Terrell Whitehurst on Court 6, 6-4, 6-2. It was Whitehurst’s fourth consecutive match (and sixth this season) clinching the win for Florida State and improves the freshman’s record to 10-5 overall and 5-2 in the ACC.

“We had a very good day from both Ben and Marco winning all three matches,” Hultquist said. “Marco and Terrell finished off their matches nicely and closed out well. It was an all-around team effort today for us.”

After the match was clinched, the Wolfpack got their first points with a 7-6 (7), 6-4 win on Court 5 from Nick Horton over Jose Gracia, and a 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 1-0 (6) win from Thomas Weigel on Court 4 over senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez.

The final margin was settled when No. 91 Michael Rinaldi, the Seminoles lone ranked singles player, won in three sets over No. 85 Austin Powell on Court 2, 6-2, 3-6, 6-4.

With the win, Florida State has now matched its win total from each of the past two seasons with three regular season matches remaining, along with the ACC and NCAA Tournaments.

Seminoles Fall at No. 6 Duke, 7-0.
Six of seven losses for FSU this year against Top 20 teams.

DURHAM, NC – No. 33 Florida State (18-7, 6-4 ACC) lost 7-0 Sunday afternoon against No. 6 Duke (20-4, 7-3 ACC) at the Ambler Tennis Stadium in Durham. The win was the seventh straight in the series for the Blue Devils and was the sixth loss this season for the ‘Noles against Top 20 competition.

“There were some opportunities out there for us today and we didn’t take them,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “Duke stepped up at those stages and played well. They’re a good team and showed why they’re number six in the country.”

The Blue Devils won the doubles point with victories on Courts 2 and 3. Freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst (Tallahassee, Fla.) fell to Duke’s TJ Pura and Bruno Semenzato, 8-2, which left FSU having to win both the remaining matches to steal the doubles point.

Both remaining courts were tied at 6-all, but Duke’s Josh Levine and Jason Tahir broke FSU’s Michael Rinaldi and Cristian Gonzalez Mendez to take a 7-6 lead before serving out for the 8-6 win. It was the first time since March 22 against Clemson that Florida State dropped the doubles point.

On Court 1, the Seminoles top pair, No. 17 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, led 7-6 against the Blue Devils’ No. 14 team of Nicolas Alvarez and Raphael Hemmeler when the doubles was decided.

Singles was similarly tightly contested, with Duke winning pivotal break points and holding off any potential Seminole rally. The Blue Devils won five of the six first sets, with the lone Seminole first-set win coming on Court 3 from Nunez (Monterrey, Mexico).

Redshirt freshman Jose Gracia (Delray Beach, Fla.) went down in straight sets on Ct. 5, 7-5, 6-2, against Duke’s Chris Mengel. Lock fell on Ct. 1 against 11th-ranked Alvarez, 7-5, 6-3, and Duke clinched on Ct. 2 when No. 42 Tahir toppled No. 91 Rinaldi (Palm City, Fla.), 6-4, 6-3.

The Seminoles had an opportunity to knock off three ranked singles opponents for the second consecutive match after Lock, Rinaldi, and Nunez achieved the feat Friday against NC State.

After clinching, Pura beat Terrell Whitehurst on Ct. 6, 6-3, 6-4. In a pair of three-set matches, Semenzato beat Gonzalez Mendez (Santiago de Compostela, Spain), 7-5, 6-7 (3), 1-0 (1), while No. 58 Hemmeler overcame that first set loss to Nunez to win 5-7, 6-2, 6-3.

“The turning point of the match happened during the first sets of singles,” Hultquist said. “We were right there with them on five courts, and Duke took four of those five courts to grab the advantage throughout singles play.

“Marco played a great first set, and Cristian had set points in each of his first two sets and split those. Ben and Marco played really well again in doubles and are showing that they are one of the top tandems in the country. They didn’t get the win today, but were leading when the doubles was called against another Top 15 opponent.”

The win improved the Blue Devils home record to 14-0 this season, while the Seminoles finish the regular season with a 4-5 true road record, the best for the program since 2010.

No. 4 Virginia Overwhelms Seminoles, Win 6-1.
Benjamin Lock notches highest-ranked singles win for FSU since 2011.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 32 Florida State fell 6-1 to No. 4 Virginia Friday evening at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee. The loss drops the Seminoles to 18-8 on the year and 6-5 in the ACC heading into the season finale Sunday against Virginia Tech. Virginia has clinched the ACC title for the 12th consecutive season and has won 135 straight conference matches.

“Virginia showed why they are arguably the best team in the country,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “We started slow in doubles, but they are really good and closed us out.”

The highlight for the Seminoles came on Court 1 singles where No. 98 Benjamin Lock beat No. 20 Mitchell Frank, 6-3, 6-4. The win was the highest singles win for a Seminole since former ‘Nole Vahid Mirzadeh beat No. 4 Alexandre Lacroix of Florida in 2011.

“I was really pleased with Ben’s win against one of the best players in the country,” Hultquist said. “[Frank’s] been ranked as high as No. 1 in the country and clinched the national championship for them two seasons ago. It shows the work that Ben has put in to continue to get better throughout the season.”

In doubles, Florida State’s top pairing of Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, 13th in the country, fell for the first time in nearly a month, 8-5 against the fifth-ranked pairing of Luca Corinteli and Ryan Shane, 8-5. That clinched the doubles point for the Cavaliers after Michael Rinaldi and Cristian Gonzalez Mendez lost on Court 2 against No. 62 Thai-Son Kwiatkowski and Mac Styslinger, 8-1.

The Whitehurst brothers, Terrance and Terrell, went down 5-1 early before winning five consecutive games and ultimately ending their unfinished match on Court 3 tied 6-6.

In singles, Virginia showed their dominance in taking straight set victories on Courts 2 through 5, ultimately leading 5-0 before Lock’s win on Court 1.

Noles Drop Senior Day Heartbreaker to No. 14 Hokies, 4-3.
Benjamin Lock beat a Top 40 opponent for the second time on the weekend.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In a match delayed nearly 45 minutes due to severe weather in the area, the No. 32 Seminoles (18-9, 6-6 ACC) fell 4-3 against No. 14 Virginia Tech Sunday afternoon at the Indoor Tennis Facility in Tallahassee. The regular-season finale for both teams, Florida State won the doubles point but fell on four of six singles courts to concede the victory.

"Virginia Tech is one of the most improved teams in the country," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "They have some good wins on the season, and their coach (Jim Thompson) is probably the frontrunner for conference Coach of the Year. They have experienced guys and competed at every spot in the lineup."

Sunday's match began outdoors at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center with a ceremony for seniors Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Joao Gauer. Both players will enter graduate school over the next year. Shortly after doubles play began, the ominous clouds opened up and the match was moved indoors to the Indoor Tennis Facility.

Once inside, the doubles point went the Seminoles way after notching victories on Courts 2 and 3. Gonzalez Mendez and redshirt freshman Jose Gracia won as a pair for the first time in over three months on Court 2, an 8-3 win over the Hokies' Amerigo Contini and Jai Corbett. Freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst clinched the match in a tiebreaker, 8-7 (4), over Joao Monteiro and Edoardo Tessaro.

"The doubles was great," Hultquist said. "The level of energy was really strong and that was outstanding today. On Court 2, Cristian and Jose were playing together for the first time since the beginning of the season and they were great for us today."

In singles, Florida State won two matches in straight sets, highlighted by redshirt junior Benjamin Lock, 98th in the country, knocking off No. 38 Andreas Bjerrehus on Court 1, 6-2, 7-5. For Lock, it was the second time on the weekend, and sixth time this spring, that he has defeated a ranked opponent. On Friday, Lock beat No. 20 Mitchell Frank of Virginia, a senior who entered the match with a 36-0 record over four years of ACC play and a 95-11 overall record.

"We saw this before," Hultquist said of Lock, who ranked as high as No. 79 in the fall. "He didn't have as big a fall as we would have liked. We see him as a Top 30 player in the country already, but his results haven't shown that. He showed it this weekend with those big wins. He's improved his game and gotten more aggressive as the season has progressed."

While Lock and Terrell Whitehurst, a 6-3, 6-2 winner on Ct. 6, won in straight sets, the Seminoles dropped the other four courts, including in straight sets against ranked opponents on Courts 2, 3, and 4.

On Court 5, Gracia won the first set against Tessaro, but lost the final two sets, and the match, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.

"Our RPI is 21 right now," Hultquist said. "We've had a little trouble getting over the hump. We've played Texas, Florida, and now Virginia Tech, all Top 15 teams, right down to the wire and didn't pull them out. That's something we need to work on. We're certainly at that level. That's the part of the team, the mental toughness, that's key."

Even with finishing the season on a three-match losing streak against three of the top four teams in the ACC, the Seminoles finished .500 in the league for the first time since 2012. It was also the most regular season wins under Dwayne Hultquist, matching a mark set in both 2008 and 2009.

Seminoles Open ACC Tournament with 4-2 Win over NC State.
Florida State wins five tiebreakers to help clinch all four points and advance.

CARY, NC – Florida State won two doubles matches and three singles matches in winner-take-all tiebreakers and beat NC State 4-2 Thursday afternoon in the first round of the ACC Tournament at the Cary Tennis Park. The Seminoles, who beat NC State less than two weeks ago in Raleigh, rallied from a break down in both doubles wins and won all three singles courts in the tiebreaker.

“It’s one of those matches where nothing came easy for either team,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “We used tiebreak wins on five courts today. Because we played them a few weeks ago, I felt we were at a disadvantage having to come back up to their turf and play again and deal with the revenge factor, but we toughed it out and got the win.”

Playing 25 minutes from North Carolina State’s campus and facing a pro-Wolfpack crowd, the Seminoles started sluggish in the doubles, quickly dropping a break on all three courts. NC State had the early advantage, winning 8-5 on Court 2 and putting the ‘Noles in a hole.

With both remaining matches coming down to a tiebreaker, juniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, the Seminole stalwarts that rank 22nd in the country, evened the doubles bout at one win a piece after an 8-7 (5) victory on Court 1 over Beck Bond and Nick Horton. On Court 3, brothers Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst broke serve trailing 7-6 with a quick hands point at the net that sparked the FSU players, coaches and fans that were cheering the team on. In the tiebreaker, the Whitehurst’s won 7-3 to clinch the doubles point in the Seminoles favor.

“We were down match point and that was an unbelievable point to send the match to a tiebreaker on [Court] 3,” Hultquist said. “I loved how Terrance and Terrell competed to get that point for us.”

In singles, the Seminoles found themselves in an early hole after dropping five of six first sets and quickly falling on Court 2, 6-3, 6-1. After NC State took the lead when Horton won on Court 6 over Terrance Whitehurst, 6-3, 6-3, the Seminoles mounted a fantastic rally to advance to Friday’s quarterfinals.

On Court 4, redshirt freshman Jose Gracia rebounded from a first-set loss to beat Weigel, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3), winning the match on an ace that tied the overall score at two apiece. When Gracia won, Terrell Whitehurst led 4-0 in the third set against Shoti Meparidze before having to fight to force a tiebreaker. Whitehurst went down 5-2 before winning the next five points and the match, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (5), and energizing the remaining two courts with an FSU win in reach.

“When you’re put in these matches, you have to be fearless,” Hultquist said. “I loved how Jose closed it out – with an ace.”

When Whitehurst won, co-captains Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Lock were both in a third set with the opportunity to clinch for the ‘Noles. Gonzalez Mendez was broken to fall behind 4-3, but immediately responded with his own break before both players served out and forced the third third-set tiebreaker of the match. Like the other two, Gonzalez Mendez was able to fight through nearly four hours of court time and mustered a 5-7, 7-5, 7-6 (5) win to clinch the match and send Florida State to Friday’s quarterfinals.

“I love how Cristian toughed it out,” Hultquist said. “Nothing came easy and all three sets were tight.”

“I’m excited to be able to clinch in my senior year,” Gonzalez Mendez said. “I played well throughout. In the first set I left points out there, but I persevered and I had built a confidence that carried through to the second and third sets.”

In ACC Tournament play, remaining matches are abandoned when one team clinches. No. 44 Lock, coming off two ranked wins last weekend and looking for his second win over No. 76 Mudge in as many weeks, was sitting at match point when Gonzalez Mendez clinched for the ‘Noles. Lock uncorked two balls high into the Cary air in celebration after the Seminoles win.

Next up for the Seminoles is a rematch with top-seeded (and No. 5 nationally) Virginia. The Cavaliers beat Florida State 6-1 last Friday, but Lock beat No. 20 Mitchell Frank in straight sets, the first loss for the Cavaliers senior in his ACC career (37-1). The Cavaliers have won 136 consecutive ACC regular season and tournament matches and have won the tournament every season since 2007. They beat the ‘Noles last season 4-0 in the quarterfinals.

“Against Virginia, you have to go for your shots,” Hultquist said. “Obviously they’re the best team in conference and have been for years. You have to want the ball and not worry about mistakes.”

Lock, Nunez Beat No. 2 Team in Country.
The two juniors helped the Seminoles avoid a shutout against No. 5 Virginia in the ACC Tournament.

CARY, NC – Juniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez teamed up to beat the second-ranked team in America, Virginia’s Luca Corinteli and Ryan Shane, during the Seminoles 4-1 loss against the top-seed Cavaliers in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament at the Cary Tennis Park. The loss drops the Seminoles to 19-10 on the year, while the win for Lock and Nunez was the highest ranked win for the pair in their careers and clinched the doubles point for the Seminoles.

“We enjoy the doubles part of college tennis,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “That was a great, high-level of play with a great crowd today. I was really proud of what we did in coming out and winning the doubles point.”

Doubles began with Virginia’s No. 63 team, Thai-Son Kwiatkowski and Mac Styslinger, knocking off Cristian Gonzalez Mendez and Jose Gracia on Court 2. After fighting back from an early break to tie the match at 6-all on Court 3, freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst evened the doubles bout after breaking the Cavaliers’ Collin Altamirano and Mitchell Frank and then serving out for the 8-6 win.

On Court 1, Lock and Nunez, who fell to Corinteli and Shane during the Cavaliers’ 6-1 win in Tallahassee last Friday, broke early in the match and held that break advantage until they were serving to win up 7-6, when Corinteli and Shane made some difficult shots to break the Seminoles and force a tiebreaker. In the tiebreaker, Lock and Nunez never trailed and eventually won when Lock smashed an overhand at the net that sailed over the fencing around the court and sent the Seminoles into a frenzy after an 8-7 (6) win. It was Lock and Nunez’s second tiebreak win in as many matches after Thursday’s win over NC State.

“Even after getting broken to force the tiebreaker on Court 1, I was still feeling good because Terrance and Terrell served it out on Court 3 for the win and that helped us regain the momentum. [The Whitehurst’s] are a high-energy team that enjoy tennis and loves competing and they’ve won a lot of matches as freshmen. Marco and Ben are a team that is going to qualify for NCAA’s and showed today they can compete with the best teams in the country.”

“Ben and I were just interested in focusing on our match and playing a really good tiebreaker,” Nunez said. “We were confident and coach told us we would have these opportunities and to seize them, and that’s what we did today against a really good Virginia team.”

The win for Florida State was the highest ranked win over any doubles team since former ‘Noles Dominic Cotrone and Blake Davis beat No. 1 Jarmere Jenkins and Styslinger of Virginia in 2013.

After becoming the first ACC team to beat Virginia in doubles this season, the Seminoles ran into a brick wall during singles, dropping four matches in straight sets as Virginia won for the 137th-consecutive time in ACC play. The Cavaliers’ singles lineup features four players ranked in the Top 100, led by No. 7 Shane on Court 1, who knocked off No. 44 Lock 6-3, 6-3.

“Marco and Michael both played great matches that didn’t get a chance to finish when Virginia clinched,” Hultquist said. “They both played outstanding today.”

Next up for the Seminoles will be the NCAA Regionals May 8-10.

“I think we’re good enough to have earned a No. 2 seed,” Hultquist said. “Yesterday’s win over NC State was huge, and Georgia Tech’s run in this tournament will help us too since we beat them earlier this year in Atlanta. All we know is we won’t go to an ACC school, but everything else is still on the table.”

Upperclassmen Lead 'Noles to First Round Victory.
Wins from FSU's lone senior and a pair of juniors helped spur win over Troy.

ATHENS, GA - Florida State gutted out a hard-fought 4-0 victory Friday afternoon over Troy in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga. The Seminoles (20-10) won the doubles point and the first three singles matches to shutout the Trojans for the second time this season and advance to the NCAA second round for the first time since 2012.

"That was a much tougher match than the first time we played Troy this season," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "I give them a lot of credit - they did a good job of staying in the match and giving themselves a chance. That was an important win for us today."

Both singles and doubles were hotly contested between the 'Noles and Trojans. In doubles, senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, playing in his fourth NCAA Tournament, paired with redshirt freshman Jose Gracia to beat Gabriel Dias and Andy Lau on Court 2, 8-5. The pair overcame two break points to win going away and gave the Trojan pair their first loss of the season (7-1).

Freshmen phenoms Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, playing in their first NCAA action with the Seminoles, clinched the match on Court 3 by an identical 8-5 score. The freshmen are now 18-7 on the season in doubles action and have won nine of their past ten decisions, including all three in the ACC and NCAA Tournaments.

"We separated late in doubles but Troy did a good job hanging around," Hultquist said. "We closed it out nicely at No. 2 doubles and I thought that was the key court for us to win coming in to today's match. Cristian and Jose did a good job of coming back from a break and winning that match."

Though equal on the scoreboard, Friday's win was much tougher for the Seminoles than when these teams met the second week of the season. In that match, Florida State dropped only one set in singles play. In the NCAA Tournament, Troy, the most improved team in the country from a season ago with a plus-17 win differential, fought the Seminoles tooth and nail and forced four courts to go three sets.

Gonzalez Mendez, the 'Noles lone senior, dropped the first two games against Daniel Bustamante on Court 4 before winning 12 of the next 15 in winning the match, 6-4, 6-1. It was Gonzalez Mendez's first NCAA win since his freshman year in 2012 against Boise State and gave the Seminoles a 2-0 lead.

"Cristian was down and fought back and that was huge from our senior," Hultquist said. "I thought he would win the second set convincingly after he had to fight for the first set win. [Bustamante] was playing well and that was a good point for us."

On Court 2, junior Michael Rinaldi, ranked No. 101 in the country, also won in straight sets for his first NCAA win. The 6-3, 6-3 win over Hassan Ndayishimye put the Seminoles up 3-0 and in prime position to clinch the match with ease.

The Seminoles won the first set on all six courts, but Troy won four of six second sets and extended the match to over three hours. In the third set, all four courts were on serve until junior Marco Nunez broke Andy Lau on Court 3 for a 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 win and a 4-0 Garnet and Gold win.

"It was nice to clinch the match today," Nunez said. "It was a better feeling from last season when we struggled late in the year. The team is looking really good and it was a good first match before tomorrow. Troy has improved a lot in four months. They had focused on our match and I'm just really proud we got the win today."

The Seminoles will now face the winner of Georgia and Winthrop Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. Florida State looks to reach the Round of 16 for the first time since 2009. Troy finishes its season 25-7 and champions of the Sun Belt Conference tournament.

2015 Season Ends with 4-0 Loss at No. 7 Georgia.
Senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez ends career winning the only set for the ‘Noles.

ATHENS, GA – The Seminoles’ 2015 season ended with a 4-0 loss at No. 7 Georgia in the second round of the NCAA Tournament hosted at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. The Bulldogs No. 1-ranked doubles team clinched the doubles point on Court 1 and Georgia won the top three singles courts to advance.

“Georgia played really well today,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “They didn’t give us many openings and we missed on a few opportunities. They just played really well.”

The Seminoles (20-11) were looking to break a ten-match losing streak against the Bulldogs (23-4) and advance to the Round of 16 for the first time since 2009. Instead, Georgia showed why it has played at the final site each of the past 13 seasons with a hard-fought win in doubles and straight set wins for their three ranked players.

In doubles, the Seminoles were looking for a repeat performance from two weeks ago when they stole the doubles point from No. 5 Virginia in the quarterfinals of the ACC Tournament. In that match, Florida State’s top pair, 16th-ranked Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, beat second-ranked Luca Corinteli and Ryan Shane to clinch the match for the ‘Noles.

Against the Bulldogs, freshmen Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst fell 8-2 on Court 3, leaving the Seminoles having to win both Courts 1 and 2 to win the point. Both remaining courts followed the same script that had Florida State needing a break trailing 7-6. On Court 1, Lock and Nunez were facing the top-ranked pair in the country, Georgia’s Austin Smith and Ben Wagland. The Georgia team held serve to knock off Lock and Nunez and gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead.

In singles, Georgia’s three ranked players, No. 24 Wayne Montgomery, No. 30 Smith, and No. 31 Nathan Pasha won in straight sets at the top of the lineup to end the Seminole season. The Seminoles only set win of the day came from senior Cristian Gonzalez Mendez, who took the first set on Court 4 against Ben Wagland in a tiebreaker, 7-6 (5).

“We competed really hard throughout, but really at the bottom of the lineup,” Hultquist said. “Cristian won a set and [freshman Jose] Gracia was in a tiebreaker to extend. Terrance also did a good job fighting back from a couple breaks to keep his match going on Court 6.”

Gonzalez Mendez, a senior from Spain who graduated with a public relations degree last week before traveling to Athens, was playing in front of family for only the second time in college after they came to the United States last week for graduation.

“I was really excited about my family being here and it motivated me a lot,” Gonzalez Menez said. “When I was coming to college I didn’t expect it to be this good. I’m happy I chose Florida State and I wish the best to the guys next season.”

The three players who fell in singles, juniors Lock, Nunez, and Michael Rinaldi, will return in 2016 as the leaders of a team that brings back nine of 11 players overall and six of seven regulars in the lineup.

“We did a lot of good things this year,” Hultquist said. “We played doubles really well this year and got a lot of playing time from freshman, which is encouraging. Cristian had a great season and it’s nice that he ended his career with a win yesterday. Our guys are going to be busy over the summer and stay motivated for next season.”

Lock Advances in 2015 NCAA Singles Tournament.
The junior fought off two match points to move to the Round of 32.

May 20, 2015

WACO, TX - Florida State junior Benjamin Lock became the first Seminole since 2009 to advance past the opening day of the NCAA Singles Tournament with a 6-7 (6), 6-3, 7-6 (4) win over Uros Petronijevic of San Diego at the Hurd Tennis Center at Baylor University. Lock fought off two match points in the third set, while both players combined to break serve just three times in the match.

"I've been practicing all year to hit big shots at the big times, and I made some big first serves on those match points," the 46th-ranked Lock said. "I felt really good. It's been a long time since I won a match being match points down. That builds the confidence and I'm really proud that I won today."

"That's a great match from Ben today, being down match points and fighting back for the win," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "He made some adjustments late in the match and played aggressive and it worked for him."

Both players held serve in the first set, forcing a tiebreaker that went the 56th-ranked Petronijevic's way after Lock went wide down the line on a return shot. In the second set, Lock broke serve twice, while Petronijevic could only return the favor once. Those were the only breaks of the match.

In the third set, both players again held serve through to the tiebreaker, though Lock had to fight off match point twice when serving down 5-4 in the set. Facing a quick defeat in what Lock hopes will be a long tournament run, he held serve against a feisty Petronijevic.

In the tiebreaker, Lock took the first three points and held that advantage for a 7-6 (4) third-set win. Lock finished the match when Petronijevic's return of a Lock serve went long. The win was the first for a Seminole in the singles tournament since Clint Bowles reached the Round of 32 in 2009.

Lock's win moves him to the second round of the tournament, where he will face No. 8-national seed Ryan Shane of Virginia, a 6-3, 6-3 winner over Mikael Torpegaard of Ohio State. Lock and Shane met April 24 in the ACC Quarterfinals, a straight-set win for Shane. Lock will also begin doubles play with Marco Nunez Thursday against Arjun Kadhe and Jakob Sude of Oklahoma State.

"I'll do a lot of ice baths tonight and get a good meal," Lock said about the turnaround after Wednesday's three-and-a-half hour match. "I'll work with Julia, our trainer, and get a good sleep. You train to play more than one match and I'm excited to move on to the next round."


Season Ends After Losses in Singles and Doubles Draws at NCAA Tournament.
Lock falls in singles, while Lock and Nunez drop doubles match against Oklahoma State.

May 21, 2015

WACO, TX - The 2015 season ended Thursday at the NCAA Tournament with losses in both the singles and doubles draws in chilly conditions at the Hurd Tennis Center at Baylor University. Junior Benjamin Lock dropped his second round match against No. 8 Ryan Shane of Virginia, 6-2, 6-1, while Lock and fellow junior Marco Nunez lost in the first round of the doubles draw against Arjun Kadhe and Jakob Sude of Oklahoma State, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.

"We have a lot of positives to move forward with," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "We'll be returning all but one of our starters and two of the three doubles teams in tact next year. We will have three seniors to lead our team, and next year will be an outstanding year for us."

Singles - Second Round
Lock's day began in 60 degree weather, a drastic change from his first round match Wednesday when temperatures hovered in the low 90s. Against Shane on Thursday, an opponent he saw in late April in the ACC Quarterfinals, a 6-3, 6-3 Shane win that helped propel the Cavaliers to the ACC Championship, Lock came out strong and notched a quick break to go up 2-0.

Lock's run of success ended there, however, as Shane took 12 of the last 13 games to win in convincing fashion 6-2, 6-1 and advance to the Round of 16.

For Lock, Thursday's match capped a singles season that saw him reach the 20-win plateau, including seven against nationally ranked opponents. He beat a pair of Top 40 opponents late in the season and went 13-8 at the No. 1 spot for the 'Noles. He became the first Florida State player to reach the NCAA singles draw in four years, and the first to reach the second round since 2009.

Doubles - First Round
In the afternoon doubles match, Lock and Nunez faced the 24th-ranked pair from Oklahoma State, Arjun Kadhe and Jakob Sude. The match was tightly contested, with the Cowboys tallying two breaks during the match, one each in the first and third sets that proved the difference and helped decide the final margin, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. The Seminoles lone break came in the second set.

"The match today in doubles was really well played," Hultquist said. "I thought Oklahoma State served well. We only broke once and returning is always a strength of our team."

The Seminole pair entered the tournament ranked 16th in the country and finish the season 21-10, including a win over the No. 2 team in the country from Virginia. Both players return in 2016 to lead a Seminole team looking to improve on its 20-11 record and second round finish in the NCAA Team Tournament.
