Lock Named ITA All-American.
The Zimbabwe native finished in the Top 25 in singles and doubles.

June 1, 2016

TALLAHASSEE, FL - By virtue of being one of the 16 seeded players at last month's NCAA Tournament, Benjamin Lock was named an All-American Wednesday by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. He becomes the third Seminole to be named an ITA All-American in singles action.

"I'm proud of Ben and the work he has put in at Florida State," head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. "He has gotten better each season and it's great that he earned this honor his final season."

On the season, Lock finished with a 25-14 record, including 16 wins against ranked opponents. Lock reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament and played in the doubles draw for a second straight season. Lock, the Seminoles top player all year, helped lead Florida State to a 14th-consecutive NCAA Tournament berth, a win over No. 1 North Carolina, the first in program history, and a school-record nine ACC wins.

Lock ranked as high as No. 9 during the season in singles play and No. 7 in doubles action. He was First Team All-ACC, the ACC Player of the Year runner-up and the ITA Most Improved Player prior to the NCAA singles draw last month.

Lock joins former Seminoles Mat Cloer (2005) and Jean-Yves Aubone (2008, 2009) as singles All-Americans from Florida State. With a win in the opening round of the NCAA Singles Championship last week, Lock finished his career sixth on the FSU all-time singles wins list with 90, while his 90 doubles wins rank fourth all-time. His 180 combined wins are third all-time and the most since the mid-1980s.

"His career stands up against any of the greats we've had come through FSU," Hultquist said. "His doubles play set him apart and was able to play in all the major collegiate championships. He represented Florida State great for five seasons, and he was rewarded this season."

Lock graduated with a finance degree in April and embarks on a professional tennis career.

Lock, Nunez Win Opener at Oracle/ITA Masters.

September 18, 2015

MALIBU, CA – The inaugural Oracle/ITA Masters event kicked off Friday afternoon, and Florida State’s seventh-ranked seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez beat Baylor’s No. 15 team of Julian Lenz and Max Tchoutakian, 6-2, 2-6, 10-7, to advance to Saturday’s semifinals.

“I was really proud of their win today,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “This is an All-Star event with the top teams and players in the country. They kept fighting and came back. It’s huge. They stuck together, hung in and got the win.”

After splitting the first two sets by identical 6-2 scores, Lock and Nunez fought back from a 6-3 deficit in the tiebreaker to win the match and advance to Saturday’s semifinals against No. 2-seeded Ryan Shane and Luca Corinteli of Virginia. The Seminoles are familiar with the Cavaliers pair – they last met at the ACC quarterfinals, an 8-7 (6) win for Lock and Nunez.

Lock and Nunez are ranked seventh in the preseason Oracle/ITA rankings that came out this week. The two finished 2015 ranked No. 20.

The Oracle/ITA field includes eight of the top doubles teams in the country, including six of the Top 30. The other semifinal will feature Guilherme Galvao and Gabriel Sidney of Pepperdine against No. 28 Alex Lawson and Quentin Monaghan of Notre Dame. Galvao and Sidney knocked off No. 1 Austin Smith and Ben Wagland of Georgia, 3-6, 7-5, 11-9, while Lawson and Monaghan beat No. 4 Boris Arias and Jordan Daigle of LSU, 6-4, 3-6, 11-9.

In singles action, No. 25 Lock, a late addition who found out he would be playing singles on Thursday, fell to No. 15 Cameron Norrie of TCU, 6-3, 6-4.

Lock Advances at ITA All-American Championships.

October 8, 2015

TULSA, OK - Senior Benjamin Lock opened the main draw of the ITA All-American Championships with a 6-3, 6-2 win over No. 54 Marco Micolani of Arkansas on Thursday. The straight-set win was No. 25 Lock's second win in as many tournaments over a ranked opponent.

October 9, 2015

TULSA, OK – Senior Benjamin Lock was down 5-4 and three match points in the third set, receiving serve from Oklahoma’s Alex Ghilea in the second round of Friday’s ITA All-American Championship. From there, Lock rallied to break Ghilea’s serve to tie the match, then broke again at 6-5 to win the match 6-1, 1-6, 7-5.

Friday’s matches were moved inside due to inclement weather in the Tulsa area, but Lock showed no signs of fatigue from last night’s late-night doubles match, easily winning the first set 6-1. Ghilea responded with a 6-1 second set and led 4-1 in the third set before Lock won six of the final seven games.

“It was a tough match all round,” Lock said. “I thought that I outplayed him in the first set. Credit to him in the second set, he came back really strong. The third set was a fight and I just tried to keep my intensity high and keep doing the right thing. When I was down match points I stayed in the moment and focused on the small details in every shot. In the end it paid off and I’m really happy about this win.”

Lock will now play Tulane’s Dominik Koepfer in the Round of 16. Koepfer, the four-seed and No. 10 player in the country, was a 7-5, 6-1 winner Friday over Matic Spec of Minnesota.

Lock becomes the first Seminole player to reach the Round of 16 singles draw at the ITA All-American Championships since Jean-Yves Aubone won two matches in 2008. No Seminole has ever reached the singles quarterfinals.

Women's singles, men's doubles each win all but one match on opening day.

November 5, 2015

ORLANDO, FL - The Collegiate Clay Court Invitational presented by VISIT FLORIDA got underway Thursday, and the Seminole men's doubles and women's teams picked up some big wins on the day.

Playing on the Stadium Court at ESPN's Wide World of Sports in a match streamed live on ESPN3, sophomore Gabby Castaneda made quick work of BYU's Toby Miclat, 6-2, 6-1. Following her match was eighth-seed Daneika Borthwick, also a straight-set winner, 6-2, 6-4, over Troy's Sanae Ohta.

"I was very happy that the girls went 8-1 on the day," women's head coach Jennifer Hyde said. "That's a heck of a way to start out the weekend. We had to make some adjustments playing on the clay, but it was a non-issue. I'm really happy with the effort and we have momentum going into Day 2."

Senior Yukako Noi won in the women's gold draw, overcoming a sluggish start to knock off Louisiana Tech's Alexandra Starkova, 2-6, 7-5, 6-4. In the garnet draw, fifth-seed Emily Fanning beat Adriana Rajkovic of Old Dominion, 6-1, 7-6, and in the white draw, Lana Rush won an opening round match against Manoela Chiacchio of Louisiana Tech, 6-1, 6-4.

In her second match, Rush beat Clare Mendell of UCF, 6-2, 6-1, giving her just eight dropped games on the day.

Finishing off the day in the white draw was second-seed Ariana Rahmanparast, a 6-4, 6-2 winner over Paula Sanchez of South Alabama.

The 'Noles lone doubles match was an 8-5 FSU win for Borthwick and Fanning. In total, the women went 8-1 on the day.

For the men, the day began with a strong doubles showing from twins Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst, 8-3 winners over Runhao Hua and Gabe Tishman of Michigan that opened play on ESPN3. The brothers won the final six games of the match.

At Grand Cypress, gold draw three-seed Marco Nunez and Jose Gracia, playing together due to the absence of Benjamin Lock, Nunez's regular playing partner preparing for the National Indoor Championships next week, won 8-3 over UCF's Chris Barrus and Inaki Espindola. In the garnet draw, four-seed Jack Haffey and Michael Rinaldi beat Lucas Gonzalez and Juan Troglia of South Alabama, 8-1.

In the white draw, freshman Ariana Rahmanparast continued a strong first year with a 6-1, 5-7, 6-4 win over Elizabeth Means of Florida Gulf Coast.

Lock Splits First Two Matches at #NIIC.
The senior rebounds from opening-round loss to advance to Consolation quarterfinals.

November 13, 2015

FLUSHING, NY - Seminole senior Benjamin Lock won his first-round consolation match Friday against No. 107 Max Hinnisdaels of Auburn, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, at the National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships. It was the 25th-ranked Lock's fifth victory of the season over a ranked opponent.

After taking the first set in commanding fashion, Lock was taken to a third set, where he went down 3-0 before winning the next five games. At 5-3 he held serve to win the match. He advances to Saturday's consolation quarterfinals against No. 33 Diego Hidalgo of Florida. The winner of that match will play a quarterfinal match later Saturday, with the consolation finals set for Sunday afternoon.

In the main draw Thursday, Lock fell 6-2, 6-4 against eighth-ranked and top-seed Thai-Son Kwiatkowski of Virginia.

The NIIC, which runs Nov. 12-15, is the fourth national championship on the 2015-16 ITA National Tournament calendar. Earlier this fall, national champions were crowned at the inaugural Oracle/ITA Masters, Men's and Women's All-American and National Small College Championships.

The NIIC features 32 of the nation's elite men's and women's singles players, as well as 20 outstanding men's and women's doubles teams. Champions from the USTA/ITA Division I Regional Championships, USTA/ITA National Small College Championships Super Bowl, Oracle/ITA Masters and the consolation champions, doubles finalists, men's singles quarterfinalists and women's singles semifinalists from the Saint Francis ITA Men's and Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championships earned automatic entry into the NIIC. Both the USTA and ITA selected at-large and wildcard participants, while Columbia University received a wildcard entry into each draw for serving as event host.


Lock Reaches #NIIC Consolation Finals After Two More Wins.
Victories over players ranked No. 19 and 33 puts Lock in Sunday’s finals.

November 14, 2015

FLUSHING, NY – Seminole senior Benjamin Lock won two more matches at the National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships Saturday, knocking off Florida’s Diego Hidalgo 6-4, 6-4 in the quarterfinals and TCU’s Guillermo Nunez 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 in the semifinals.

The two wins (Hidalgo is ranked No. 33 and Nunez is ranked No. 19) bring the 25th-ranked Lock’s win total against ranked players this fall to seven, including three in this tournament.

“Ben played really well today,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “It was two tough matches against good players. Against Nunez, Ben overcame a disappointing first set and got physical and aggressive, winning points at the net and dictating play. His strength and fitness played into the results today.”

With a spot in the finals on the line, Lock won the final six games against Nunez and 12 of the final 15 in taking the second and third sets.

In Sunday’s finals, Lock will face No. 23 Dovydas Sakinis of Dartmouth. Last season, Sakinis beat Lock in Tallahassee, 6-4, 6-2.


Lock Wins #NIIC Singles Consolation.
Four wins in three days, all against ranked competition; wraps up fall schedule. November 15, 2015

Flushing, NY – No. 25 Benjamin Lock won the singles consolation championship Sunday afternoon at the National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships in New York. In the final, against No. 23 Dovydas Sakinis of Dartmouth, Lock won 7-6 (5), 7-5 in a hard-fought match at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Sakinis had beaten Lock during last year’s dual match season.

“I played some really good tennis today,” Lock said. “It was a really tough match and I had to fight hard to get the win.”

“Ben had a great week beating four ranked players,” head coach Dwayne Hultquist said. “He had more wins than anyone but Dominik Koepfer (of Tulane, singles champion). He showed a lot of fight today to break serve at 6-5 in the second set to win the match.”

For Lock, it was his fourth victory in the past three days, all against ranked competition, with two of them (No. 19 Guillermo Nunez of TCU and Sakinis) against players ranked higher than him. In total, Lock finishes the fall season with eight ranked wins, while all five of his losses have come against players ranked in the ITA Top 15.

“I had a great trip and I felt that my game improved after every match and I ended up playing one of my best matches of the year today,” Lock said.

After dropping a first-round match against No. 8 Thai-Son Kwiatkowski of Virginia, Lock’s run to the consolation championship began Friday against No. 107 Max Hinnisdaels of Auburn. In the quarterfinals, he knocked off No. 33 Diego Hidalgo of Florida before facing Nunez in the semifinals and Sakinis in the championship.

“I didn’t play my best in my first round match,” Lock said, “but Coach Dwayne helped me get my game back and I finished off strong playing some good tennis.”

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The 31st-ranked men’s tennis team beat Florida Gulf Coast 6-1 and improved to 3-0 on the season Monday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. FSU won the doubles point and five of six singles matches on the day.

Senior Benjamin Lock, the 15th-ranked player in the country, overcame an early 4-1 deficit and won 11 of the final 12 games in defeating Ricky Ventura, 6-4, 6-1. In doubles, he paired with fellow senior Marco Nunez to win 6-4 after trailing 4-2.

Nunez, No. 77 in the initial ITA standings, knocked off Eduardo Alfonzo in straight sets. Freshman Aziz Dougaz and sophomores Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst also won in straight sets. Whitehurst’s 6-0, 6-0 win on Court 6 was the second double bagel of the season for the Seminoles after Parker Evertsen posted a similar score Saturday against Florida A&M.

The doubles pair of Dougaz and senior Michael Rinaldi has not lost a game this season, posting identical 6-0 scores against Florida Gulf Coast and Saturday against South Alabama.

Florida Gulf Coast’s lone point, the first the Seminoles have surrendered on the young season, was Andres Alfonzo’s three-set win against Rinaldi on Court 2.

QUOTES:

Head coach Dwayne Hultquist:
“We did a good job at coming back at No. 1 doubles to clinch the doubles. That was key to the match. FGCU had a real good start in singles against Ben before he turned it around real quick, and that put us in control of the match. We did lose one first set on Court 2, but with Ben's match getting changed, that established the momentum. I was pleased with Terrance getting off court quick, and Aziz as well. He's had a nice start to his career and is a good player that is going to win a lot of matches for us.”

Hultquist on Florida Gulf Coast:
“They are a good team. They always fight hard and [head coach] CJ Weber gets them to represent their school well. They competed hard. They made the NCAA tournament last year and won the Atlantic Sun. CJ has done a really good job with them and they have an up-and-coming program.”

Hultquist on upcoming opponents and schedule:
“It was important for us to play a lot of matches. We played a lot in Hawai'i and also this weekend. With our schedule, we have such a tough draw playing top SEC teams and the ACC being the best conference in the country and the best team in the Big 12 in Oklahoma, we are loaded in our schedule. Now its going to be Top 30 teams for most of the remainder of the season.”

Senior Benjamin Lock on coming back from a break down in both singles and doubles:
“Stay on track and keep to your game plan, stay with it, and eventually you will get your opportunity. You have to be ready mentally when you have that opportunity to take it. Marco and I were down, but we were confident we were going to pull through.”

“I picked up the intensity and tried to fire up my teammates around me and that helped me get fired up too. I play my best tennis when I'm like that. It was tough with the conditions today, cold and windy, but I knew if I started to dictate play [Ventura] would eventually break down.”

Noles Drop 4-3 Heartbreaker at No. 13 USF.
Dougaz, Terrance Whitehurst notch singles wins for FSU.

TAMPA, FL - The 31st-ranked FSU men's tennis team dropped its first match of the season Saturday in a 4-3 match at No. 13 USF (1-0). The Seminoles (3-1) won the doubles point for the third time this season, while freshman Aziz Dougaz and sophomore Terrance Whitehurst won singles matches.

FSU took an early 1-0 lead with a doubles win in convincing fashion. Dougaz and senior Michael Rinaldi won 6-2, moving to 3-0 on the year and 6-0 since Dougaz enrolled earlier this month. Clinching the match were seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez with a 6-3 win on Court 1.

Twin brothers Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst led 5-3 when the match was clinched.

In singles, Terrance Whitehurst won on Court 6, 6-3, 6-3, to give the Noles a 2-1 lead. Whitehurst trailed both sets 3-1 before reeling off five-consecutive games. After USF won on Courts 1 and 5 to grab a 3-2 lead, Dougaz won on Court 4 against Justin Roberts, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4. Dougaz rallied from a 2-0 third-set deficit to stay undefeated as a Seminole and tie the match at 3-all.

The final match came down to Rinaldi on Court 3. Rinaldi won the first set, 7-6 (7), before USF's Sasha Gozun came back and won the second, 6-4. In the pivotal third set, Gozun broke three times to win 6-7 (7), 6-4, 6-1, and send the Bulls to Sunday's regional championship.

QUOTES:

Head coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"It was a great tennis match considering we were playing in pretty adverse cold and wind conditions. I was pleased with how we played doubles and Terrance did a great job today and has been good this spring. He showed a lot of maturity beating an experienced player.

"All the matches are important, but the match came down to Michael and I thought Gozun controlled more of the points in the latter part of the second and third sets. It would have been helpful for our team if one of our first set losses had come back and won the second set. That would have stretched the match out to our advantage."

Hultquist on Sunday's consolation match against No. 29 Mississippi State:

"We need to bounce back and get ready for a good MSU team. That will be an important match for us. We have to see if we can continue to grow as a team."

Noles Upset No. 29 Mississippi State, 4-1.

TAMPA, FL – The 31st-ranked FSU men’s tennis team responded from its first loss of the season in resounding fashion Sunday, knocking off No. 29 Mississippi State 4-1 at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend. The Seminoles are still undefeated in the doubles point this year, and used wins at the bottom of the ladder to secure the upset.

In doubles, for the fourth time this season, Courts 1 and 3 were the difference for the Noles. Seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez won 6-1, while freshman Aziz Dougaz and senior Michael Rinaldi clinched the match with a 6-4 win on Court 3.

In singles, the Bulldogs took four first sets to put FSU behind the eightball early, but three of the four courts fought to a third set to stretch out the match and eventually fall in the Noles’ favor.

For the second consecutive day, Dougaz and sophomore Terrance Whitehurst won for Seminole points. Dougaz beat Niclas Braun, 6-1, 7-5, while Whitehurst won 6-3, 6-1 in dominant fashion.

After MSU scored its only point of the match in a win on Court 2, Terrell Whitehurst clinched for the Noles with a 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 win on Court 5.

The remaining two matches, Lock on Court 1 and Rinaldi on Court 3, were both in the third set when match was clinched.

Noles Roll Tide 6-1.
FSU improves to 5-1 in front of 400 fans and a worldwide audience on ESPN3.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The 29th-ranked Seminole men's tennis team beat a ranked SEC opponent for the second consecutive match, this time a 6-1 winner over No. 61 Alabama Friday night at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"It was a lot of fun tonight playing on ESPN3. We had a terrific crowd with the Golden Spear club seating and terrific support from the sororities on campus. Our guys love playing when we have a huge crowd like we did tonight. I was pleased with how we had three dominating matches in Marco, Terrance, and Michael. They set the stage winning the first set and closing their matches out. We'll look back on this match and see Alabama as a very good team down the road. It was a very good night for us in that we played well and we've beaten two SEC teams in a row. Those are good teams and we're building our resume. We look to build the momentum Sunday against a very good Troy team."

On Terrance Whitehurst:

"Terrance is undefeated for the spring. He's worked really hard on his game and improved his serve. His biggest thing is competing hard. He's a different player than a year ago, staying focused on his match. It's always fun because he has a good time and brings a lot of energy."

Senior Marco Nunez:

"We prepared really well for this team. Our coaches did a good job to get us focused for this match and the tactics and game plan for this match was assertive."

Noles Stay Undefeated at Home with 4-1 Win Over Troy.
Sophomore Terrance Whitehurst remains undefeated after straight-set win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State men's tennis team moved to 6-1 on the season with a 4-1 win over No. 68 Troy Sunday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The 29th-ranked Seminoles won the doubles point and four of the five singles matches that finished to move to 10-0 all-time against the Trojans.

For the second consecutive match, Florida State won all three doubles matches as Courts 2 and 3 finished within two seconds of each other. On Court 1, seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez remained unbeaten in the spring in doubles after a 6-2 win. On Court 3, freshman Aziz Dougaz and sophomore Jose Gracia were playing together for the first time and came out 7-5 winners.

In singles, Terrance Whitehurst was again the first player to finish with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Filip Mansson on Court 4. The sophomore Whitehurst has yet to drop a set this season and has not allowed an opponent to win more than three games in any of his 14 sets played.

After Troy notched its only point on Court 5, the top of the Florida State lineup began to shine. On Court 1, Lock won 6-2, 6-2 over Daniel Bustamante, who earlier in the weekend beat No. 23 Piotr Lomacki of Miami, and Nunez won on Court 2, 6-4, 6-4, over Vaclav Slezak.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"Troy had a shot at the doubles, and it was key when we broke serve at 4-all on Courts 2 and 3. That was one of the keys of the match, and finishing to get the doubles point. The guys up top played well today. Ben and Marco were sharp, winning a lot of points at the net, very engaged. Terrance has been putting people away solidly the whole year. I'm pleased he's making a run right now."

On the change in the singles and doubles lineup:

"We've played a lot early in the year here. We've played seven matches and had a bunch in Hawai'i and a couple of guys are beat up right now. We made the change today and it gave a chance for Michael [Rinaldi] to have a rest and get healthy. That's crucial for us. Terrell [Whitehurst] has been in and out of the lineup due to health so we gave him off today."

On playing freshman Aziz Dougaz on Court 3 this weekend for the first time:

"Aziz is learning. I liked today that he was down a set and 3-0 in the second and came back to win the second set. It takes a while to get used to playing college matches, and it's seldom that a freshman comes in and tears it up. There's an adjustment period. He had a really good weekend last weekend, and this weekend he lost a match and didn't finish the other. He's going to be really good for us and I think today was a growing experience. I like that he was down in doubles both Friday and today and came back and won both matches. That's something to build on."

Noles Continue to Grow in 4-3 Loss at No. 3 Texas A&M.
Seniors Nunez, Rinaldi; freshman Dougaz notch wins for the Seminoles.

COLLEGE STATION, TX - The 28th-ranked FSU men's tennis team fought to the bitter end against third-ranked Texas A&M Friday night, eventually falling to the Aggies 4-3 at the Mitchell Tennis Complex. Florida State (6-2) fought back from a 3-0 hole to tie the match before Texas A&M (6-0) clinched the victory.

Florida State lost the doubles point for the first time this season. Seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez were the first off the courts with a 6-2 win on Court 1 over Harrison Adams and Shane Vinsant. The Seminoles could not overcome being a break down on either of the remaining courts, however, dropping Courts 2 and 3 by identical 6-3 scores.

For Lock and Nunez, they moved to 7-0 this spring with all seven wins coming on Court 1. Freshman Aziz Dougaz and senior Michael Rinaldi, playing on Court 3, fell for the first time this season and are now 5-1.

In singles, the Aggies ran out to a quick 3-0 lead with straight-set wins on Courts 5 and 6. With FSU needing to win all the remaining points, Dougaz rebounded from his only loss of the year last weekend with a 6-4, 6-4 win on Court 4 over Harrison Adams. Shortly thereafter, Rinaldi won by a similar score on Court 3 over Jordi Arconada to trim the Texas A&M lead to 3-2.

The final two matches came down to both teams only ranked players. For the Seminoles, No. 77 Nunez took the first set against No. 29 Shane Vinsant before the Aggie forced a third set. In the third, Nunez overcame a 2-0 deficit and broke at 4-3 before serving out for the 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 win to tie the match.

On Court 1, No. 15 Lock was facing No. 5 Arthur Rinderknech and looking for his second Top 5 win of the season after beating No. 4 Julian Lenz in the fall. Lock held a lead for much of the second set after an early break, but Rinderknech broke as Lock was serving to force a third set, then won the remaining two games to walk away a 7-5, 7-5 winner. All seven of Lock's losses have been to Top 17 players.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"It was a tough match. Well played, hard fought on both sides. We had a chance to win doubles and knew it would be important. We were up 3-1 on Court 3 and lost a few close games. That was key for them getting the doubles point. We had some good starts in singles. They broke back on some of them, but I was pleased with a lot of the effort we got today. It was intense and good preparation for us moving forward to postseason."

"I was pleased with Marco coming back down in the third to win the match and give us a chance. Aziz and Michael both got good wins too."

On fighting back after losing the doubles point for the first time this season:

"We did a good job coming back in singles and getting up breaks early in singles. We started quick and had some good opportunities."

Seminoles Win Four on Military Appreciation Day.
Women shutout Navy and Florida A&M; men beat The Citadel and Liberty.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – On a day that saw the return of the family of Scott Speicher to the tennis complex that bears his name, the Seminole tennis teams won four matches Saturday during the 2nd Annual Military Appreciation Day, with the women shutting out Navy and Florida A&M, while the men knocked off The Citadel and Liberty. Speicher was a 1980 Florida State graduate and a Navy captain that was the first casualty of the Gulf War, and his family attended the women’s opener against the US Naval Academy.

In a prematch celebration to honor the Speicher family and all military veterans, the Seminoles presented The Citadel and Navy teams with challenge coins and FSU president John Thrasher directed comments towards those in attendance.

FSU WOMEN 7, NAVY 0

The 36th-ranked Noles (6-2) opened the day with a 7-0 win over the visiting Midshipmen (7-5). FSU won the doubles point with a 6-4 win on Court 1 by Daneika Borthwick and Gabriella Castaneda after the schools split on Courts 2 and 3.

In singles, FSU won all 12 sets, with senior Yukako Noi clinching the match with a 6-3, 6-0 win on Court 2 over Navy’s Kristine Rojo.

FSU WOMEN 4, FLORIDA A&M 0

In the afternoon match, the women needed less than 90 minutes to complete a 4-0 win over the crosstown Rattlers (2-5). Florida State (7-2) won a pair of 6-0 decisions in doubles, and dropped just five games in winning three singles matches. The highlight of the match was the return of junior Daniela Schippers, who played her first singles match since injuring her wrist during the first practice of the fall in September.

Schippers led 6-0, 5-1 when the match was clinched.

FSU MEN 6, THE CITADEL 1

Playing on the north courts while the women faced Navy, the No. 25 FSU men (7-2) played without two of its top players and still walked away with a 6-1 victory over The Citadel (7-7). Without seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez at the top of the lineup, Jose Gracia and Jack Haffey were able to crack the lineup and cruised to a 6-1 win on Court 3 in doubles. Aziz Dougaz and Michael Rinaldi won on Court 2 to clinch the point.

In singles, Florida State swept the Bulldogs on Courts 1-5, including one bagel each on Courts 1-4. The Citadel’s lone point came on Court 6, with Michael Anzalone defeating Parker Evertsen in a third-set super tiebreaker, 6-3, 5-7, (11-9).

FSU MEN 4, LIBERTY 0

The afternoon match played out much like the first, with the Noles (8-2) winning the doubles point and the first three singles matches to knock off Liberty (3-5). Dougaz and Rinaldi won 6-1 on Court 1, while Gracia and Haffey clinched the doubles point on Court 3 with a 6-4 win.

In singles, Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst won in quick fashion, while Gracia clinched the match and ended play for the day with a 6-4, 6-3 win on Court 5 over Diego Castano.

QUOTES:

Women’s Head Coach Jennifer Hyde:

“Today was an absolutely amazing day. So many people were a part of something fairly unique and special that we’re doing here with Florida State tennis. It was a great tribute to the legacy of Scott Speicher, a tribute to our student veterans and the military community as a whole, and the service academies that were able to come for today’s matches.”

On the level of play from her team today:

“I’m so happy for Dany Schippers to be back in the lineup after returning from a broken wrist. It’s great to have her back on court competing for us. It was nice to have all seven girls play for us today. This season is going to continue to intensify and spots in the lineup will get moved around. It’s going to be exciting and the girls will have to make sure to take full advantage of every opportunity they are getting.”

On looking ahead to ACC play beginning next Friday:

“We play a pair of Top 10 teams next week at Duke and North Carolina, so our opportunities to show our growth are staring us in the face.”

Junior Daniela Schippers:

“I had missed the court and competition so much. Competing is my favorite thing. I prefer it a lot more than just practicing. It was great to feel that adrenaline and I love that kind of pressure. It was a good match for me to begin and I’m looking forward to playing against UNC and Duke next week. My team was really happy for me today and that was really cool.”

Men’s Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“Florida State is very military friendly, and that’s one of the goals of President Thrasher. We feel a sense of appreciation for all the people who have served and represented our country. We have a special connection to Scott Speicher because he was an FSU student. With our courts being named after him, it’s great that his family was able to return today. We also had a great crowd and people came out specifically for military day, but the tennis was great and hopefully we made a few new fans today.”

On today’s matches:

“I was pleased with Jose, he went 4-0 today. I was pleased with Jack, he went 3-0 and close to winning his second singles match before running out of time. He did great today. It was a good overall day. It was nice to get a few extra people in the lineup.”

Speicher was a 1980 Florida State graduate and a Navy captain that was the first casualty of the Gulf War, and his family attended the women’s opener against the US Naval Academy.

In a prematch celebration to honor the Speicher family and all military veterans, the Seminoles presented The Citadel and Navy teams with challenge coins and FSU president John Thrasher directed comments towards those in attendance.

FSU WOMEN 7, NAVY 0

The 36th-ranked Noles (6-2) opened the day with a 7-0 win over the visiting Midshipmen (7-5). FSU won the doubles point with a 6-4 win on Court 1 by Daneika Borthwick and Gabriella Castaneda after the schools split on Courts 2 and 3.

In singles, FSU won all 12 sets, with senior Yukako Noi clinching the match with a 6-3, 6-0 win on Court 2 over Navy’s Kristine Rojo.

FSU WOMEN 4, FLORIDA A&M 0

In the afternoon match, the women needed less than 90 minutes to complete a 4-0 win over the crosstown Rattlers (2-5). Florida State (7-2) won a pair of 6-0 decisions in doubles, and dropped just five games in winning three singles matches. The highlight of the match was the return of junior Daniela Schippers, who played her first singles match since injuring her wrist during the first practice of the fall in September.

Schippers led 6-0, 5-1 when the match was clinched.

FSU MEN 6, THE CITADEL 1

Playing on the north courts while the women faced Navy, the No. 25 FSU men (7-2) played without two of its top players and still walked away with a 6-1 victory over The Citadel (7-7). Without seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez at the top of the lineup, Jose Gracia and Jack Haffey were able to crack the lineup and cruised to a 6-1 win on Court 3 in doubles. Aziz Dougaz and Michael Rinaldi won on Court 2 to clinch the point.

In singles, Florida State swept the Bulldogs on Courts 1-5, including one bagel each on Courts 1-4. The Citadel’s lone point came on Court 6, with Michael Anzalone defeating Parker Evertsen in a third-set super tiebreaker, 6-3, 5-7, (11-9).

FSU MEN 4, LIBERTY 0

The afternoon match played out much like the first, with the Noles (8-2) winning the doubles point and the first three singles matches to knock off Liberty (3-5). Dougaz and Rinaldi won 6-1 on Court 1, while Gracia and Haffey clinched the doubles point on Court 3 with a 6-4 win.

In singles, Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst won in quick fashion, while Gracia clinched the match and ended play for the day with a 6-4, 6-3 win on Court 5 over Diego Castano.

Women’s Head Coach Jennifer Hyde:

“Today was an absolutely amazing day. So many people were a part of something fairly unique and special that we’re doing here with Florida State tennis. It was a great tribute to the legacy of Scott Speicher, a tribute to our student veterans and the military community as a whole, and the service academies that were able to come for today’s matches.”

On the level of play from her team today:

“I’m so happy for Dany Schippers to be back in the lineup after returning from a broken wrist. It’s great to have her back on court competing for us. It was nice to have all seven girls play for us today. This season is going to continue to intensify and spots in the lineup will get moved around. It’s going to be exciting and the girls will have to make sure to take full advantage of every opportunity they are getting.”

On looking ahead to ACC play beginning next Friday:

“We play a pair of Top 10 teams next week at Duke and North Carolina, so our opportunities to show our growth are staring us in the face.”

Junior Daniela Schippers:

“I had missed the court and competition so much. Competing is my favorite thing. I prefer it a lot more than just practicing. It was great to feel that adrenaline and I love that kind of pressure. It was a good match for me to begin and I’m looking forward to playing against UNC and Duke next week. My team was really happy for me today and that was really cool.”

Men’s Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“Florida State is very military friendly, and that’s one of the goals of President Thrasher. We feel a sense of appreciation for all the people who have served and represented our country. We have a special connection to Scott Speicher because he was an FSU student. With our courts being named after him, it’s great that his family was able to return today. We also had a great crowd and people came out specifically for military day, but the tennis was great and hopefully we made a few new fans today.”

On today’s matches:

“I was pleased with Jose, he went 4-0 today. I was pleased with Jack, he went 3-0 and close to winning his second singles match before running out of time. He did great today. It was a good overall day. It was nice to get a few extra people in the lineup.”

Lock & Nunez Beat No. 1 Doubles Team at Florida.
The win was the first over the top-ranked pair for the Seminoles since 2009.

GAINESVILLE, FL - FSU seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez put together their most complete performance of the season Saturday in taking down the top-ranked pair from Florida at the Ring Tennis Complex in Gainesville. The 6-1 win over Diego Hidalgo and Gordon Watson took only 25 minutes and was the only Seminole win in a 7-0 Florida victory.

For Lock and Nunez, it was the highest ranked win of their careers and the first time the Seminoles have beaten the No. 1 team in the country since 2009.

The Gators rallied to win the remaining two doubles matches and the point, including a 7-6 (2) win on Court 3 that featured Terrance Whitehurst playing with Jose Gracia, the first time Terrance has played with someone other than his brother Terrell in his two seasons at Florida State.

In singles, the Gators clinched the match with straight-set wins on Courts 1, 5, and 6, then won third-set tiebreakers on Courts 2-4 to secure the shutout.

QUOTES:

Head coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"We were in position to grab the doubles point and let it slip away. We did a good job bouncing back in singles, taking three first sets and actually having some other opportunities to get even more. Florida did a good job of closing it out the three matches they won the first set on and coming from behind on the other courts."

On Lock and Nunez's win over the No. 1 doubles team:

"They beat them last year and have played well this spring and are still undefeated in the spring. Ben and Marco are one of the better teams in the country."

Senior Benjamin Lock:

"It was a good win for Marco and myself. We have been playing quality doubles this spring and Marco has been clutch on the big points. We really don't focus on our opponents that much, we have a certain style that we play and we just try and give our best effort each match to help the team win the doubles point. We beat this Florida team last year, but to beat the No. 1 team in the nation was pretty cool and we were happy about it."

Noles Open ACC Play with 7-0 Win at Clemson.
The win was just the second ACC road shutout in 10 years.

CLEMSON, SC – No. 47 Florida State opened the ACC season with a closer-than-the-score 7-0 shutout win at Clemson Friday afternoon. Florida State (9-3, 1-0 ACC) won all five matches that went three-sets to defeat the Tigers (8-7, 0-1 ACC).

In doubles, Courts 2 and 3 won in dominating fashion with identical 6-0 bagels to give FSU the early lead. Aziz Dougaz and Michael Rinaldi won on Court 2, while Terrance Whitehurst and Jose Gracia picked up their first win as a pair in just their second match together.

If FSU thought singles play against the unranked Tigers would be as easy, that quickly changed when Clemson won four first sets, ensuring an FSU victory would take at least one three-set victory. Instead, FSU rallied to win the second set on all four courts.

No. 85 senior Marco Nunez was the only Nole to win in straight sets, a 7-6 (7), 6-3 winner on Court 2 over Luke Johnson to put FSU up 2-0. Dougaz took the next point, rallying from a 6-1 first-set loss on Court 4 to beat Austin Ansari, 1-6, 6-4, 6-4. The clincher came from Gracia on Court 5, who also rallied from a first-set loss to beat Robert Dudley, 1-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 for FSU’s second consecutive win over the Tigers.

The remaining three courts were already in a third set and FSU won all three to take the 7-0 win.

NOTES:

QUOTES:

Head coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“We lost four first sets in singles and it was key when Marco fended off three set points and came back from 5-1 down in the tiebreak to win the first set. That was key. I liked how we played in the second and third sets. We won 10 of the last 11 sets of the match in those two sets. It showed our strength and resiliency and we continued to play better as the match went on.

“Jose’s win down a set and a break was huge for us, and for him to clinch was good. Aziz was down as well, broke at 4-all in the third set. It looked convincing, but Clemson played hard. Any ACC win on the road is a good win. It shows the momentum that comes in college tennis. We won the doubles easy and were in a position where Clemson got off to a great start. They pushed us hard in the first set and came out on top. As the match wore on, we did better.”

On finishing the match strong:

“That’s something we didn’t do last week. That was a point of emphasis, finishing matches off, and playing well at all parts of the match.”

CORAL GABLES, FL – No. 47 Florida State (9-4, 1-1 ACC) fell 4-3 Sunday afternoon at Miami (6-4, 1-0 ACC). The loss snapped a 41-match winning streak for the Seminoles against unranked opponents.

FSU opened the match perfectly, taking the doubles point and the first two singles courts before the Hurricanes rallied to win the final four singles matches. In doubles, seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez moved to 9-0 on the season with a 6-1 win over Jesse Flores and Christian Langmo. FSU clinched the point on Court 3 with a 6-4 win from Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst.

In singles, Gracia and Whitehurst won on Courts 5 and 6, respectively, to give FSU a 3-0 lead. The Hurricanes rallied with straight-set wins on Courts 3 and 4.

Miami then won both of the remaining matches versus ranked opponents in three sets – No. 81 Langmo beat No. 85 Nunez, 2-6, 7-5, 6-0, and No. 78 Piotr Lomacki clinched the 4-3 win over No. 16 Lock, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

Noles Beat No. 1 UNC 4-3.
Thrilling three-hour match is the highest-ranked win in school history.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – In a match that lasted nearly three hours, the Florida State men’s tennis team notched its biggest win in school history, emerging as 4-3 winners over No. 1 North Carolina Friday evening. The win is the first for Florida State (10-4, 2-1 ACC) over a top-ranked team in school history and the highest in head coach Dwayne Hultquist’s 17 seasons at Florida State.

Coming off a 4-3 loss Sunday at unranked Miami, Florida State fell three spots to No. 51 in this week’s ITA rankings, while North Carolina was the lone undefeated team remaining in the country and entered its ACC opener with a 15-0 record on the season.

The Seminoles attacked early in doubles, with freshman Aziz Dougaz and senior Michael Rinaldi securing a 6-1 win on Court 2 over Jack Murray and Brayden Schnur. After North Carolina tied it with a win on Court 3, FSU seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez beat third-ranked Brett Clark and Robert Kelly, 6-4, and gave the Seminoles a 1-0 lead.

The win for the 26th-ranked pair of Lock and Nunez was their 10th consecutive to open the season and their second in two weeks over a Top 3 team after beating No. 1 Gordon Watson and Diego Hidalgo of Florida last month.

Needing three wins for the upset, the Seminoles faced a five-headed monster of ranked players for the Tar Heels. North Carolina took a 2-1 lead after wins on Court 3 by No. 29 Clark over Rinaldi and Court 5 by No. 89 Kelly over Jose Gracia.

FSU tied the match with its lone straight-set win by Dougaz on Court 4, 6-1, 7-6 (4) over No. 74 Murray. The win was Dougaz’s first over a ranked player in three tries through his first season in Tallahassee.

With the match tied at 2-2, the final three courts went to a third set. Lock and Nunez were facing a pair of Top 40 players, Lock against No. 38 Schnur and Nunez on Court 2 against No. 12 Ronnie Schneider. Lock used a break on a deuce point at 4-3 to take a two-game lead, and served out for the 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 win to give the Seminoles a 3-2 edge.

After Lock’s win, and with his teammates on the court cheering him on, Nunez took a 4-0 third-set lead and finished off Schneider with a 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-3 win to clinch the upset.

In the remaining match, Carolina’s Blaine Boyden beat Terrance Whitehurst, 3-6, 7-6 (1), 6-2 to finalize the margin.

NOTES:

QUOTES:

Head coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“I never feel that anyone should win the doubles on us. We’re good at all three spots. Ben and Marco haven’t lost this year (10-0). Aziz and Michael played lights out. That set the tone for the whole match.

You don’t win National Indoors (UNC) without being a resilient team, and they showed that today. We split the first sets with them, and they took it to us in the second sets. Aziz’s win in straight sets was huge for us. It tied the match up and reestablished our momentum. Ben and Marco have been in the pivotal spot a number of times in their career, and today they both came through when we needed them. They were great today.”

On beating the top-ranked team in his 17th season:

“Historically, it’s the biggest win for us. We’ve never beaten the No. 1 team in the country. We’ve had a couple of Top 5 wins over Duke and beat Illinois in the NCAA Tournament when they were defending national champions. But as far as the regular season, this is our biggest win. It’s got to rank up there.”

On being doused with the water cooler postmatch:

“That hasn’t happened before. I knew it was coming but I wasn’t going to fight it.”

Senior Benjamin Lock:

“Unbelievable. Roller-coaster of a match. Really tight doubles – Michael and Aziz played lights out today and that’s the best I’ve seen them play. We really set the tone heading into singles. After last weekend, taking a loss to Miami, we got a reality check with this team. We talked about how we were going to act moving forward and that it wasn’t going to affect our season.

"Everyone gave a great effort. I was trying to focus on my match but there was so much emotion. I knew that if I just kept holding serve in the third set, I was going to get a break. Next thing I knew, I was 5-3 up and 40-0 serving. That’s when it hit me that we could win this thing.”

Seniors Shine for Noles in 5-2 Win over Duke.
Lock, Nunez, Rinaldi combine for four wins against the Blue Devils.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Coming off the biggest win in school history Friday, the men's tennis program beat its second ranked team of the weekend, emerging as 5-2 winners against No. 66 Duke at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The win snapped a seven-match losing streak against the Blue Devils (7-8, 1-2 ACC) that dated to 2009.

For the 11th time in 13 tries this year, Florida State (11-4, 3-1 ACC) won the doubles point with wins on all three courts. Seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez moved to 11-0 on the season with a 6-1 win over Nicolas Alvarez and Vincent Lin on Court 1. Sophomores Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst clinched the point with a 6-3 win on Court 3, and Aziz Dougaz and Michael Rinaldi finished soon after to complete the doubles sweep.

In singles, FSU raced to a 3-0 lead with straight set wins on Court 2 (Nunez, 6-2, 6-4 over Lin) and Court 5 (Gracia, 6-2, 6-2 over Ryan Dickerson). Searching for the clinching point, the remaining four courts went to a third set. In all four, the player that won the first set went on to lose the match.

Dougaz fell on Court 4, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1, to TJ Pura, and Whitehurst lost on Court 6 to Josh Levine, 4-6, 6-4, 6-0.

The clincher would come from Rinaldi on Court 3. Forcing a third set with a break at 6-5 in the second, Rinaldi used breaks at 3-3 and 5-3 for the 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 win over Catalin Mateas.

With only the final margin left to determine, No. 30 Lock beat No. 20 Alvarez on Court 1, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3. His lone break of the third set came at 4-3 and he served out for the win.

Noles Extend Win Streak to Three with 4-3 Win at Va. Tech.
Gracia's three-set win on Court 5 clinched the Noles come-from-behind win.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Florida State won its third straight match against a ranked opponent Friday night, beating No. 40 Virginia Tech 4-3 at the Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center in Blacksburg. After losing the doubles point for just the third time this season, the Seminoles secured four singles wins, including three third-set tiebreakers.

Looking for just its second road victory of the season, Florida State dropped the doubles point to the Hokies and quickly fell into a 1-0 hole. The FSU pair of Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, who entered 11-0 on the season, fell 6-4 to No. 21 Andreas Bjerrehus and Joao Monteiro. Playing together for the first time this spring, sophomore Jose Gracia and junior Jack Haffey fell 6-3 on Court 3.

Needing to win four singles matches for the victory, FSU tied it up with a straight-set win on Court 1 by the 30th-ranked Lock over No. 18 Monteiro, 6-3, 6-2. Lock, the reigning ACC Player of the Week, beat his third consecutive opponent ranked in the ITA Top 40 after wins last week against No. 1 players from North Carolina and Duke.

Virginia Tech struck back, taking a 3-1 lead with a straight set win on Court 6 and a three-set win on Court 3. With the final three courts in a third set, FSU had to take all three to extend their winning streak to three straight. Nunez, who beat No. 12 Ronnie Schneider of North Carolina last week, overcame a 2-0 hole in the third to force a tiebreaker, which he eventually won, 6-3, 1-6, 7-6 (1). Shortly thereafter, freshman Aziz Dougaz beat the second ranked opponent of his career with a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (8) win on Court 4 over No. 59 Edoardo Tessaro to even the match.

With the score tied 3-3, Gracia trailed 5-4 in the third set against Mitch Harper having to break to stave off a Hokie win. He came through, eventually forcing the third three-set tiebreaker of the match. Leading 5-4 in the tiebreaker, Gracia used a mini-break to clinch the 6-7 (5), 6-4, 7-6 (4) win and a 4-3 win for the Seminoles.

QUOTES:

Head coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"It was an unbelievable match. For us to win against a very tough program in Virginia Tech, who hosted an NCAA regional last year and has a lot of seniors in their lineup, was huge. It was a tough day. We overcame the adversity of not winning doubles. We had a good start to the singles portion, winning four first sets. When Jose fought back in the second set to force a third, that was a turning point for us. Aziz was clutch, overcoming a break down in the third for the win.

"It follows up our successes from last weekend, against North Carolina and Duke, and to win this match on the road really speaks to our seniors and our team to fight hard and not give up. Three matches we could have lost in a tiebreaker and we won all three. I love the spirit with our guys doing the Seminole chant. Our players really got behind Jose in the clincher. I'm proud of Jose for competing after being down in the third, he was winning points at the net. Great team effort."

On senior Benjamin Lock:

"Ben's on fire. In the ACC, he's playing a Top 20 player almost every match. He beat a player today that was in the finals of the National Indoors, a darn good player. Ben's success comes from his approach to the game - we show up to practice, he's on the courts ready to go, training hard. He beat a good player, a great player, today. Beating him today at his place was huge."

Sophomore Jose Gracia:

"I was just taking it point by point in the tiebreaker. I never really thought about the moment, just wanted to keep playing my game. I was able to fight back from an early mini-break and my teammates kept cheering me on.

"I knew I was going to step up. I hit a backhand passing shot and took it to him. It was a very competitive match."

Cavaliers Too Much for Noles.
Shutout ends FSU win streak at three.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. - No. 23 Florida State (12-5, 4-2 ACC) lost 7-0 Sunday afternoon at the Boar's Head Sports Club against top-ranked Virginia (14-2, 4-0 ACC). It was the Seminoles second match in nine days against the No. 1 team in the country after beating North Carolina last week in Tallahassee.

In doubles, the high-profile matchup of No. 26 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez of FSU and No. 6 Ryan Shane and Luca Corinteli remained unfinished and on serve when the Cavaliers clinched the doubles point. Lock and Nunez beat the Virginia pair in the ACC Tournament last season.

In singles, Virginia won all six of the first sets, including a 7-6 tiebreaker on Court 6 from Jake Albo. The Cavaliers would clinch five of the six matches in straight sets. Nunez forced a third set against No. 47 Collin Altamirano before falling 6-1, 3-6, 7-5.

Noles Stay Perfect at Home with 5-2 Win over Ga. Tech.
FSU won five singles points to secure the win.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A week after beating No. 40 Virginia Tech with four singles wins, the 20th-ranked FSU men's tennis team (13-5, 5-2 ACC) beat No. 32 Georgia Tech (11-5, 4-2 ACC) 5-2 in similar fashion with five singles wins Thursday night. Braving windy conditions all night and eventually being forced inside to complete the win, FSU used wins on Courts 1-5 for its 10th-consecutive home win to open the season.

Like they did against the Hokies, FSU dropped the doubles point. It was the third consecutive match the Seminoles lost the doubles point after dropping just two in the first 15 matches of the season. Sophomores Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst prevented a Tech sweep in doubles with a 6-3 win on Court 3.

Needing four matches in singles to lock up the win, Florida State turned to senior Benjamin Lock for its first point. Ranked 12th in the country in the ITA poll released Tuesday, Lock faced No. 11 Christopher Eubanks on Court 1. Last season, an unranked Lock beat No. 66 Eubanks in Atlanta, and again beat the Yellow Jacket this season with a quick 6-2, 6-2 win to even the match. The win was the highest of Lock's dual match career, an honor he previously set last week with a win over No. 18 Joao Monteiro of Virginia Tech and tied two weeks ago against No. 20 Nicolas Alvarez of Duke.

Freshman Aziz Dougaz, playing on Court 4, rallied in the second set for a 6-2, 7-5 win and gave FSU a short-lived 2-1 lead. Tech tied the score with Nathan Rakitt's 6-4, 6-3 win on Court 6 over Whitehurst.

As dark clouds began to fill the sky, a lightning warning that eventually turned to a thunderstorm forced the remaining three matches indoors. Gracia, on Court 5, went indoors with a 6-2, 6-6 (5-3) lead over Daniel Yun. After Yun evened the tiebreaker at 5-5, Gracia won the next two points for the match and a 3-2 FSU lead.

Senior Michael Rinaldi, on Court 3, went indoors with a 2-1 third set lead that ballooned to 4-1 before finally clinching the Seminole victory with a 7-6 (8), 6-3 win.

The final match, between No. 60 Marco Nunez and Carlos Benito, was decided in a third match tiebreaker. After both players held serve the entire third set, Nunez prevailed with a 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (6) win to provide the final margin.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"One of the key points to the match was when we won five first sets and the fact that Michael came back and won being down, that was key to the match. To get five first sets gained momentum and we finished all five off."

"Momentum kind of got stopped with us coming indoors. But we came back and won the three matches here and the guys did a good job of staying together."

"We had to make the point to them that we had to get after it. We were two points away from Jose and we're fortunate that Jose won that tiebreaker, because momentum could have shifted. Mike did a real good job holding serve, breaking serve and getting off to a 4-1 lead and hitting a backhand pass for the winner."

Senior Michael Rinaldi:

"I'm just glad I could win the match for us. The guys all fought hard and it was a good match. It was a tough day. Anytime you move from outside to inside, it's hard to adjust sometimes, but we did a good job and took all three matches that we had."

Senior Benjamin Lock:

"I knew I had to play my best tennis. I played him [Eubanks] last year. He's really aggressive and likes to go after his shots."

"We were just so focused on winning today and the team has been on a roll at the moment. We wanted to keep the undefeated record at home, which is pretty cool. Our guys played well today with a lot of energy, so I'm happy for them."

Rinaldi Win Snaps Wake Forest’s Eight-Match Shutout Streak.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida State men’s tennis fell to No. 13 Wake Forest 6-1 Sunday afternoon at the Indoor Tennis Facility. The Seminoles (13-6, 5-3 ACC) prevented the shutout with a straight-set win from senior Michael Rinaldi on Court 3 for FSU’s lone point.

In doubles, Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst beat Romain Bogaerts and Dennis Uspensky, 6-3, to even the doubles point at 1-all. On Court 3, the Demon Deacons prevailed in a tiebreaker, 7-3, to clinch the doubles point and enter singles with a 1-0 lead.

Wake Forest continued its strong play in singles, opening first set leads on five courts. On Court 5, Wake’s Christian Seraphim knocked off Gracia, 6-0, 6-3, and Uspensky beat Whitehurst on Court 6, 6-2, 6-2, for a 3-0 lead.

The Demon Deacons clinched the match with a 6-4, 6-1 win on Court 2 from No. 36 Petros Chrysochos over No. 60 Marco Nunez.

After the match was clinched, Rinaldi’s 6-4, 6-3 win over Ho snapped the Demon Deacon’s eight-match shutout streak.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“We were right there, up 5-4 (in doubles) and had a chance to win it, then up 6-5 and then the tiebreaker, so not winning it was big. Clearly Wake is a great team and they jumped on us in singles. Ben had his chance in the tiebreaker in the first. We had an opportunity with Aziz in the third set. I’m pleased with Mike getting the win.”

“North Carolina was a team like this. We got the quick start and hung there. We did the same thing against Virginia Tech. We have a lot of playing ahead of us and another tough weekend ahead of us next weekend.”

Senior Michael Rinaldi:

“It’s always tough when you lose the doubles point, especially when you lose it in a breaker like that. It’s especially tough when you’re playing a team as good as Wake. We could have come back stronger in singles, but that’s how it is sometimes.”

Noles Pull Off 4-3 Comeback Win at Notre Dame.
FSU wins doubles, final three points to beat the Fighting Irish.

NOTRE DAME, IN - In front of a hostile crowd Friday evening, No. 22 Florida State (14-6, 6-3 ACC) pulled off a stunning, come-from-behind 4-3 victory over No. 51 Notre Dame (10-11, 4-5 ACC) at the Eck Tennis Pavilion. The Seminoles won the doubles point and the final three singles matches in a contest that lasted nearly four hours.

Forced indoors due to weather and with the start time pushed back three and a half hours, Florida State snapped a four-match doubles skid with wins on Courts 2 and 3 that gave the Noles a 1-0 lead heading into singles. No. 59 Aziz Dougaz and Michael Rinaldi broke a personal three-match losing streak with a 6-3 win over Grayson Broadus and Josh Hagar on Court 2, while sophomores Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst won for the fourth consecutive match and moved to 6-1 in ACC play with a 6-4 clincher on Court 3 over Eddy Covalschi and Kenneth Sabacinski.

With the 1-0 lead, Florida State came out flat in singles, dropping five first sets as Notre Dame quickly regained momentum. The Irish tied the score at 1-all with a 6-4, 6-0 win on Court 4 by Alex Lawson over Dougaz.

The remaining five courts were all much closer. Notre Dame took a 2-1 lead with a 6-4, 6-4 win on Court 3 from Covalschi over Rinaldi. In a third set, Jake Albo fell to Sabacinski 6-2, 4-6, 6-1 to give the home team a 3-1 lead.

Needing to win the remaining three courts to leave Indiana with a win, senior Marco Nunez finished off a long, drawn-out straight set win over Hagar on Court 2, 7-6 (2), 7-5 for one of the three points the Noles needed. Gracia faced match point down 5-3 in the third set before forcing a tiebreaker that he won, 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3) to even the score.

The final match on was between seniors Notre Dame's Quentin Monaghan and FSU's Benjamin Lock. Last season, Monaghan came to Tallahassee and handed Lock his worst loss of the year, 6-1, 6-0, and the Irish escaped with a 4-3 win. This season proved to be much closer, with Monaghan taking the first set in a tiebreaker, while Lock rallied for a 6-3 second set.

In the third, Lock picked up an early break before both players held serve until 5-3, when Monaghan finally broke Lock on a deuce point to extend the match. Monaghan proceeded to win the next two games to take a 6-5 lead before Lock again broke on a deuce point, second serve backhand down the line.

In the tiebreaker, Lock led 6-4 before smashing a winner that Monaghan's racket grazed for a 6-7 (6), 6-3, 7-6 (4) win. After the point, Lock was mobbed by his teammates as he collapsed to the ground.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"Unbelievable win for us, to be able to beat them indoors. I respect them as a team and how they fight. Great win for us. Come from behind, down 3-1, had to win the last three matches. Marco got us off to a start with his win, then Jose was down a match point and pulled out a tiebreaker win, then Ben, with the crowd on him, he faced match point before winning in a tiebreaker. I'm proud of our effort tonight. Great team win for us. Shows what can happen when you don't quit and continue to fight."

On the importance of the doubles point:

"We didn't play our best doubles tonight. We had a chance at No. 1 and got beat. Those guys for Notre Dame have played great all year. We spent this week working on doubles, and it paid off on 2 and 3. I liked how we finished it serving at 2 and 3."

On different guys coming through this season:

"The thing is, with our seniors when they're battling, we're in the match. We have things to work on and guys that need to improve, but our seniors, and Jose, and Aziz against North Carolina, have been big. We need everyone to come through at different times. It's different people on different days. They've all contributed to winning. We're doing a good job of being in matches."

On regrouping for Sunday's match in Tallahassee against No. 18 Oklahoma:

"It's brutal. It's a difficult turnaround for us, but they're also on the road. It's definitely a challenge, but we didn't have many choices scheduling. They were the national runner-up and I wanted our guys to have a chance to play a school like Oklahoma."

Senior Benjamin Lock:

"I had to focus on my court and stay as tough as I can. I couldn't tell what was happening on the other courts. Monaghan made balls in that third set to come back from 5-2. Down 6-5, I just took my time and kept with my game plan and stayed aggressive. On the deuce break, I just told myself, 'Go for it'. In the tiebreaker, it was just emotion. Not keeping track of the score, just crushing the ball and being aggressive."

On facing Monaghan after losing to him last season:

"I had that in the back of my mind and I was fired up. I blew a 6-2 tiebreaker lead in the first set today, but I kept in the match. I really wanted to beat him and Notre Dame. They're a good team, especially at home. They're tough. Our team was so strong. We played good doubles. Marco was solid against a guy that had beaten him twice, and Jose fought off a match point. Great team victory on the road."

On winning a pair of 4-3 road matches in ACC play:

"It shows the confidence we have in ourselves and our team. Big shots at big moments. Same story as Virginia Tech - guys aren't going to give it to us. Before, we were playing not to lose. You won't make every shot, but it will pay off if you play to win. A lot of experience in tough situations. Don't crumble, stay strong. Everyone trusts each other on the team knowing they have the experience in big moments."

Seminoles Fall Against No. 18 Oklahoma.
Sooners' 4-0 win was the first loss at Speicher for FSU this season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - After an emotional win Friday night at Notre Dame, the FSU men's tennis team fell 4-0 Sunday against No. 18 Oklahoma (11-7) at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. It was the first loss at Speicher this season and second in Tallahassee this season.

After dropping the doubles point, the Seminoles (14-7) came out strong in singles, winning the first set on three courts. FSU could not sustain the momentum, however, and Oklahoma won a pair of straight-set matches, Andre Biro 6-4, 6-3 over Terrance Whitehurst on Court 6 and No. 47 Alex Ghilea clinched against Michael Rinaldi on Court 3, 7-5, 6-4.

On Court 2, FSU's Marco Nunez, ranked No. 60 in the ITA standings, won the first set 6-4 before dropping the final two, 6-1, 6-2, against No. 91 Spencer Papa.

In the remaining unfinished matches, No. 12 Benjamin Lock was on serve in the second set after dropping the first; Aziz Dougaz was up a break in a third set; and Jose Gracia was down a break in the third set.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"Oklahoma came out really strong in doubles. That's usually a strength of ours and they beat us pretty good at No. 1 and 2 and really gained momentum of the match. We did a great job coming out first sets in singles, getting in position to get more than three. We had set point at 1 and 3 singles. If we convert those, the match would have gone on and the score would have shown either our way or at least closer."

On playing Friday on the road and Sunday at home:

"It's difficult, but they're playing on the road too. They had to play Friday and come up here. It was a long match Friday, a great win for us and unbelievable experience for our guys to be down match point in two different matches in a difficult place to win."

On the difficulty of winning second sets this season:

"If you look at the second sets, we didn't win any second sets today. The three we won the first set, we didn't win the second and that changes the momentum of the match. We were battling hard and had some opportunities. We were up at different stages, and with no-ad tennis there's up and downs."

Lock Shines in No. 23 Noles 4-3 Win over Louisville.
Tenth-ranked Lock wins 6-0, 6-1 on Court 1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Looking to top last season's ACC win total of six, No. 23 Florida State (15-7, 7-3 ACC) knocked off Louisville (12-14, 0-9 ACC) 4-3 Friday evening at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center. The Seminoles raced out to a 4-0 lead before Louisville snagged the final three points of the match.

In doubles, 19th-ranked seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez won for the first time since March 13 with a 6-1 win over Jeffrey Brown and Alex Gornet. The Louisville pair are ranked No. 81, and beat Lock and Nunez in the fall. FSU clinched the doubles point with Aziz Dougaz and Michael Rinaldi's 6-2 win on Court 2.

Lock's brother, Courtney, is a Louisville sophomore. He and Sean Donohue were tied with FSU's Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst when the doubles point was clinched.

In singles, Lock played his most dominant match of the season, beating Gornet 6-0, 6-1. It was the first bagel against an ACC opponent on the season, and the first unranked ACC foe he has faced since the opener against Clemson on March 4.

With a 2-0 lead, Dougaz won 6-3, 6-2 on Court 4 over George Hedley, while Gracia clinched the match in FSU's favor with an identical score on Court 5 over Brandon Lancaster.

With the Noles leading 4-0, the Cardinals recorded the final three points to provide the final margin.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"We had a really good start on doubles. It was great seeing Ben and Marco have a dominant performance, winning 6-1. Our guys did a good job of winning it at No. 2. It was a different match - we won three of the matches going away to clinch, and then lost two matches fairly closely. It was a little different because in the tournament that's a 4-0 win, but in reality it goes down as 4-3. I'm especially pleased with Ben being quick off, as well as Jose and Aziz. All three were very dominant performances. They did a good job staying on their opponents and finishing them off. I give Louisville credit for competing the way they did."

On impact of the three seniors heading in to Senior Day Sunday:

"Those guys have been good battlers and won a lot of matches. They're on our list for most wins. They've won a lot of big matches - Ben and Michael against Oklahoma in 2013 and the big win this year against North Carolina. They're competitive guys and they work hard and play hard every day."

Seminoles Sweep Senior Day Doubleheader.
Lock, Nunez, Rinald combine for six singles wins against NC State, Bethune-Cookman

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 23 Florida State beat No. 41 NC State and Bethune-Cookman Sunday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in the final home matches of the season. The two shutouts, 7-0 against NC State and 6-0 against Bethune-Cookman, improved the Noles to 17-7 on the year and 8-3 in the ACC. It was also Senior Day for Benjamin Lock, Marco Nunez, and Michael Rinaldi. A pre-match ceremony prior to the NC State match included displaying the flags and playing the national anthems for each seniors’ country (Lock – Zimbabwe; Nunez – Mexico; and Rinaldi – U.S.). No. 23 FSU 7, No. 41 NC State 0

Against the Wolfpack (17-12, 5-6 ACC), FSU won the doubles point with victories on Courts 2 and 3. With a 1-0 lead entering singles play, the three FSU seniors faced ranked opponents on the other side of the net, the second straight season FSU faced three ranked singles players from NC State. Similar to last season, FSU won all three matches.

First off for FSU was sophomore Jose Gracia, a 6-1, 6-4 winner over Chris Mikrovas. It was Gracia’s eighth conference win of the season, tying with Lock for the team lead. Freshman Aziz Dougaz made the score 3-0 FSU with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Igor Saveljic on Court 4. The match was clinched when Rinaldi beat No. 93 Nick Horton on Court 3, 6-4, 7-5.

With the match clinched, Terrance Whitehurst beat Ivan Saveljic, Igor’s brother, on Court 6, snapping a nine-match losing streak for the Seminoles on the final court. No. 74 Nunez beat No. 119 Thomas Weigel, overcoming a first-set loss to win 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5), and No. 10 Lock beat No. 55 Simon Norenius, 6-4, 7-6 (6), to provide the final margin. The win improved the Noles to 24-3 all-time against the Wolfpack, and was the first shutout of NC State since 2002.

No. 23 FSU 6, Bethune-Cookman 0

In the second match of the doubleheader, FSU and Bethune-Cookman (11-12) played singles first and did not play doubles when the match was decided. FSU posted three bagels against the Wildcats, including a pair by Rinaldi against Justin Hall in a 6-0, 6-0 win that took less than 45 minutes to complete. The first five courts were decided in straight sets, while junior Jake Albo and BC-U’s Alvaro Barrera went to a third-set tiebreaker, with Albo eventually prevailing, 6-1, 2-6, 7-6 (5).

It was just the second meeting between the Noles and Wildcats after FSU’s 7-0 win in 2013.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“NC State was an exceptional match for us. Winning the doubles point after losing at No. 1 was a very key point. It established us being in the lead and we did a really good job coming out and getting early breaks in singles. Jose had a very dominant performance and got us on the board quick. We were fortunate enough to finish them off with Aziz and Michael to clinch. Having a senior clinch on Senior Day is always nice. I was pleased with Terrance, down 4-1 in the first and came back to win the first set and close out his match.

“Ben and Marco got another ranked win. We had three on the day and we beat them where they would consider their best points.”

On the importance of a 7-0 win over a ranked NC State team:

“It’s good. NC State ranked in the low 30s, early 40s that has had a good year, some really good wins, specifically over Wake Forest. It was good to have a dominant performance because that shows you played good at every spot.”

On the seniors going 6-0 in singles play on Senior Day:

“One thing that helped – we played the doubleheader and they played a lot of tennis today. That works on your stability and physical. Marco played five sets today, Ben played four that were pretty tough. It wasn’t easy, but the score was good. We’ve beaten a lot of good teams this year, and NC State is another one. A lot of team’s we’ve beaten are moving up in the rankings. Our schedule has been strong this year.”

On going 13-2 at home in 2016:

“You have to play well in the ACC at home with how difficult it is to play on the road. We only lost one ACC match at home, and that got moved indoors. We did a good job. We had some great road wins too, specifically Notre Dame and Virginia Tech.”

On sophomore Jose Gracia’s improved ACC play this season:

“He’s been clutch this year. Virginia Tech and Notre Dame, on the road, he was huge, facing match points and getting wins. He’s grown his game, coming to the net more and finishing more at the net.”

On winning at No. 6 and the impact that could have moving forward:

“Terrance has a good record, just not recently. Today gets him back in the win column, and that should be a good point for us no matter who we play. It was good to get him winning there today and hopefully we build off that next week.”

Seminoles Sweep Senior Day Doubleheader.
Lock, Nunez, Rinald combine for six singles wins against NC State, Bethune-Cookman

TALLAHASSEE, FL – No. 23 Florida State beat No. 41 NC State and Bethune-Cookman Sunday afternoon at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in the final home matches of the season. The two shutouts, 7-0 against NC State and 6-0 against Bethune-Cookman, improved the Noles to 17-7 on the year and 8-3 in the ACC. It was also Senior Day for Benjamin Lock, Marco Nunez, and Michael Rinaldi. A pre-match ceremony prior to the NC State match included displaying the flags and playing the national anthems for each seniors’ country (Lock – Zimbabwe; Nunez – Mexico; and Rinaldi – U.S.). No. 23 FSU 7, No. 41 NC State 0

Against the Wolfpack (17-12, 5-6 ACC), FSU won the doubles point with victories on Courts 2 and 3. With a 1-0 lead entering singles play, the three FSU seniors faced ranked opponents on the other side of the net, the second straight season FSU faced three ranked singles players from NC State. Similar to last season, FSU won all three matches.

First off for FSU was sophomore Jose Gracia, a 6-1, 6-4 winner over Chris Mikrovas. It was Gracia’s eighth conference win of the season, tying with Lock for the team lead. Freshman Aziz Dougaz made the score 3-0 FSU with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Igor Saveljic on Court 4. The match was clinched when Rinaldi beat No. 93 Nick Horton on Court 3, 6-4, 7-5.

With the match clinched, Terrance Whitehurst beat Ivan Saveljic, Igor’s brother, on Court 6, snapping a nine-match losing streak for the Seminoles on the final court. No. 74 Nunez beat No. 119 Thomas Weigel, overcoming a first-set loss to win 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5), and No. 10 Lock beat No. 55 Simon Norenius, 6-4, 7-6 (6), to provide the final margin. The win improved the Noles to 24-3 all-time against the Wolfpack, and was the first shutout of NC State since 2002.

No. 23 FSU 6, Bethune-Cookman 0

In the second match of the doubleheader, FSU and Bethune-Cookman (11-12) played singles first and did not play doubles when the match was decided. FSU posted three bagels against the Wildcats, including a pair by Rinaldi against Justin Hall in a 6-0, 6-0 win that took less than 45 minutes to complete. The first five courts were decided in straight sets, while junior Jake Albo and BC-U’s Alvaro Barrera went to a third-set tiebreaker, with Albo eventually prevailing, 6-1, 2-6, 7-6 (5).

It was just the second meeting between the Noles and Wildcats after FSU’s 7-0 win in 2013.

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“NC State was an exceptional match for us. Winning the doubles point after losing at No. 1 was a very key point. It established us being in the lead and we did a really good job coming out and getting early breaks in singles. Jose had a very dominant performance and got us on the board quick. We were fortunate enough to finish them off with Aziz and Michael to clinch. Having a senior clinch on Senior Day is always nice. I was pleased with Terrance, down 4-1 in the first and came back to win the first set and close out his match.

“Ben and Marco got another ranked win. We had three on the day and we beat them where they would consider their best points.”

Noles End Regular Season With 5-2 Win at Boston College.
Ninth ACC win of season ties a school record.

CHESTNUT HILL, MA - No. 22 Florida State won its only match of the week Sunday with a 5-2 victory at Boston College. The win ends the regular season and gives the Noles (18-7, 9-3 ACC) its most ACC wins in school history, tying the 2008 team (9-2).

Playing without senior Benjamin Lock, the 11th-ranked player in the country, FSU tinkered with the lineup to defeat Boston College (6-17, 0-12 ACC). In doubles, senior Marco Nunez, Lock's regular partner, played with junior Jack Haffey at No. 3 and beat Kent Mukai and Jeff Melvin, 6-3, while sophomores Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst won at No. 2 6-3 to secure the point.

In singles, No. 75 Nunez moved to the top slot and posted a double-bagel against Aidan McNulty, 6-0, 6-0, extending the FSU lead. Gracia beat Alexandre Thirouin on Court 4 and Michael Rinaldi beat Hank Workman on Court 2 to secure the win.

With the match decided, Mukai beat Whitehurst after Whitehurst had to retire on Court 5, and Kyle Childree beat FSU's Jake Albo on Court 6. The final margin was decided with Aziz Dougaz's 6-3, 6-4 win on Court 3.

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"Good to get the win today. We're pleased to finish in the top three for the ACC Tournament, which is arguably the best conference in the country. We had a very good ACC season. We're looking forward to a challenging tournament. A lot of teams are playing to get in the NCAA Tournament or increase seeding and playing to win.

"Jack played well in doubles and got us the first point playing with Marco. We had quick matches on the top side and glad to see those guys win quick."

Noles Fall in ACC Quarterfinals to Virginia Tech.
The Hokies won three tiebreakers, including the clincher in a third set.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - Playing indoors due to rain in the area all day Friday, the three-seed Seminoles fell 4-3 to six-seed Virginia Tech in the ACC Tournament Quarterfinals. The match was a reversal from when the two teams met last month, a 4-3 FSU win.

In doubles, Florida State (18-8) tallied wins on Courts 2 and 3 to enter singles play with a 1-0 advantage. First to finish was Aziz Dougaz and Michael Rinaldi on Court 2, 6-3 winners over Amerigo Contini and Edoardo Tessaro. Just seconds later, Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst improved to 9-1 against ACC opponents with a 6-3 win on Court 3 over Jai Corbett and Mitch Harper.

FSU's No. 16 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez led No. 15 Andreas Bjerrehus and Joao Monteiro, 5-3, when the match was clinched.

Needing three singles wins to advance to a semifinal match against Wake Forest, the Seminoles started strong on Court 6 with Whitehurst's 6-0, 6-2 win over Aaron Gomez. That was the only first set the Seminoles won, however, and soon trailed 3-2 after Virginia Tech scored straight-set victories on Courts 4, 1, and 2, the latter two coming in tiebreakers.

On Court 5, Gracia dropped the first set before forcing a second against Harper. Gracia used an early break to gain momentum and a late break to seal the victory, tying the match 3-3 with a 2-6, 7-5, 6-2 win.

With the match knotted up, Rinaldi led 4-2 in a third set against No. 107 Contini. Contini broke to make the match 4-3, and both players remained on serve until the tiebreaker. Rinaldi had two match points at 6-5, 30-40, but Contini connected on both to extend the match.

In the tiebreaker, Contini ran out to a 4-0 lead before winning the match 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (2).

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

"It was a great college match. It was competitive. Virginia Tech is an outstanding team and one of the most underranked teams in the country based on what their ability is. We had a great win over them earlier in the season at their place, and this is a great win for them to beat us. The difference came down to the flipping of the matches (5 of 7 spots changed results from the regular season match). We won the doubles point this time, and they won it last time. They were good at closing matches out in the decisive sets. That's exactly what we did up there.

I'm extremely proud of Jose. He was down to match point and came back and won. I was very pleased with Terrance, one of his best matches of the year in convincing fashion.

I'm sure Michael feels bad about not winning his match, but that's only one of four points that occurred. He did a great job of coming back from a first set loss. We lost the match in the first set - they won five of six."

On what he said to the team after the match:

"I told them the key was the flipping of the matches and that we didn't play good enough in the first sets. They did a good job of not giving up and digging in and fighting. Certainly, it's advantageous for Virginia Tech to play indoors, but we did a good job in a hard-fought indoor match."

On how the team will prepare over the next three weeks for the NCAA Tournament:

"The first thing is we have to get through finals. We're fortunate to have a couple guys, Ben and Marco, playing in the Tallahassee Challenger next week. We'll take some days off to regroup and get our bodies healthier and train hard. There's some things we can correct and improve on, but this is not a bad loss."

Season Ends with 4-3 Loss vs. Baylor in NCAA Tournament.
Gracia, Terrance Whitehurst pick up singles victories.

ATHENS, GA – The 2016 season ended in heartbreaking fashion Saturday as Florida State (18-9) lost to Baylor (16-13) in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament hosted by Georgia. It was the Noles ninth match this season that finished 4-3, with FSU going 4-5 in those matches.

The Noles opened the match winning the doubles point with wins on Courts 2 and 3. Off the court first was the sophomore duo of Jose Gracia and Terrance Whitehurst after they blanked Julian Lenz and Tyler Stayer, 6-0. After filling in for an injured Terrell Whitehurst midseason, Gracia and Whitehurst finish the season with an eight-match win streak and 10-2 overall record, including an 8-1 mark in the ACC.

On Court 2, freshman Aziz Dougaz and senior Michael Rinaldi used a late break to take down the Bears’ Jimmy Bendeck and Felipe Rios, 6-4. The Seminole pair won their final four matches of the season.

On Court 1, 17th-ranked Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez were at match point, 6-6 (6-2), over No. 86 Tommy Podvinski and Max Tchoutakian when the match was abandoned.

Needing three singles wins to advance, Florida State took the opening set on three courts, including tiebreaker wins on Courts 3 and 4. Baylor tied the match at 1-1 with a 6-1, 6-4 win by No. 94 Tchoutakian over No. 76 Nunez on Court 2, but FSU regained the lead with an identical win on Court 6 by Whitehurst over Stayer.

With FSU leading 2-1, the match of the day on Court 1 between All-Americans No. 11 Lock and No. 12 Lenz went in Baylor’s favor with Lenz’s 6-2, 7-6 (4) win to even the score at 2-2. It was a rematch from the Oracle Masters in September, a straight-set win for Lock.

The teams split the next two points, with Baylor’s Bendeck beating Dougaz, 6-7 (1), 6-4, 6-2, while FSU’s Gracia beat Podvinski, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, on Court 5.

With a spot in the Round of 32 at stake, Rinaldi trailed 4-0 early in the third set before rebounding, but Rios was able to close out the Baylor victory with a 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-3 win.

QUOTES:

Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist:

“I was pleased with how well Jose came back. I thought he did a great job of fighting back. There were a lot of big points that could’ve gone either way. It was an incredibly tough draw. Baylor is a team that made National Team Indoors, they’re a team that was one of the top seeds last year. They have their top three guys back, so we knew it was going to be a battle up top even though we were maybe slightly favored down low. The key match was really number four. We won the first set there and didn’t quite finish it off. At four-all, we had some game points to go up 5-4, and it ended just one game away. I thought that was the defining moment of the match.”

Lock Advances to Second Round at NCAA Tournament.

May 25, 2016

TULSA, OK – A day after being named the nation’s Most Improved Player by the ITA, Florida State senior Benjamin Lock advanced to the second round of the NCAA Singles Championship with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Vanderbilt’s Daniel Valent at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center Wednesday afternoon.

Lock, ranked No. 11 in the country and seeded 9-16 for the draw, overcame an early break to take down No. 36 Valent. After Valent went up 2-0 in the first set, Lock won the next 11 games to take a 6-2, 5-0 lead before serving for the win in commanding fashion. It was Lock’s 16th win against a ranked opponent this season.


Lock, Nunez Finish Seminole Careers at NCAA Tournament.
The seniors dropped a third-set tiebreaker in doubles Thursday.

May 26, 2016

TULSA, OK - In a scene reminiscent of 2015, Florida State seniors Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez ended their seasons on Day Two of the NCAA Tournament. In both seasons, Lock fell in the second round of singles action earlier in the day, while he and Nunez fell in a third-set against Oklahoma State in doubles in the afternoon.

This year, Lock, the No. 11 player in the ITA and already an All-American, was facing No. 28 Ronnie Schneider of North Carolina with a Round of 16 berth on the line. Lock was dominant in the first set, holding on to an early break to win the opener 6-3. In the second set, the players traded breaks before heading to a tiebreaker, which Schneider won 7-6 (5). In the deciding set, the players were forced to the sideline for nearly 10 minutes with nagging rain.

When the rain came, Schneider led 4-2 in the third and went on to win the deciding set 6-2.

For Lock, the match was the final singles event of his Seminole career and caps a senior season that saw him named the Most Improved Player in the country en route to 16 ranked wins on the year and First Team All-ACC honors. He finishes in the top 10 in FSU history in singles, doubles, and combined wins for a career.

In the afternoon, Lock and Nunez opened the first round of doubles play against Oklahoma State's Arjun Kadhe and Julian Cash. In the 2015 NCAA Tournament, the Cowboys duo of Kadhe and Jakob Sude knocked off the FSU pair in three sets, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. This season, with a different format that enforces third-set tiebreakers, the Cowboys won 6-1, 2-6, 1-0 (6).

Lock and Nunez will go down as one of the strongest doubles tandems in school history after making the NCAA Tournament two of their three years playing together. Lock graduated in April and will play professionally, while Nunez will remain at Florida State and work towards a finance degree. The pair led the Seminoles to an 18-9 record as a team in 2016.
