Noles Start 2017 Fall Season With a Bang at Crimson Tide Four-In-The-Fall.
Senior Jose Gracia started his season of strong winning both of his singles and his doubles matches.

September 22, 2017

TUSCALOOSA, AL - The Florida State men's tennis team began their 2017 fall season Friday at the Crimson Tide Four-In-The-Fall event. Both doubles pairs advanced to in the winner's bracket, as well as redshirt senior Jose Gracia who advanced to the semifinals.

"I was very pleased overall with the team's performance here at Alabama," said associate coach Ryler DeHeart. "It was a very hot day and our guys showed some grit in the most important areas of preparation and effort. They all competed hard until the end today."

The duo of Gracia and freshman Chase Wood as well as seniors Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst both came out on top in the first round of doubles. Gracia and Wood dominated in their first match together as they took down the team of Grant Stuckey from Alabama and Chase Schupp of Tulane, 8-1.

"Jose (Gracia) went undefeated on the day and really helped his freshman partner, Chase, get his first official college win in doubles," said DeHeart.

The Whitehurst brothers fell behind 3-0 to Jochen Bertsch and Jake Van Emburgh of Oklahoma. The duo turned it around and came out on top, 8-5.

"It was good to see the Whitehurst twins storm back from a slow start to take a convincing win over a good Oklahoma team," said DeHeart.

The two Seminole pairs will continue on Saturday in the winner's bracket of the Crimson and Houndstooth doubles draws.

Gracia capitalized off of the momentum he had from his dominating doubles win and took it to the singles court. In a tough battle, he came out on top 6-1, 6-2. Terrance Whitehurst followed along as he too won his match in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1.

In Wood's first collegiate singles match he battled, but came up short to Eric Rutledge of rice, 7-6(5), 6-2. Terrell Whitehurst battled through a three set match against Kai Lemke of Memphis. Whitehurst took the first set 6-2 before losing the second by the same score of 6-2. He came back in the third set to win 6-4.

Gracia continued his winning ways in the second round. He was down 5-2 in the first set against Memphis's Jan Pallares, but quickly turned it around to win 7-6(2). In the second set he took down Pallares 6-3 to move on to the semifinals of the Houndstooth draw.

After cramping in his first match Wood came back to take the first set of his second match 6-3. He lost his second and third sets 6-4, 6-1.

Terrance Whitehurst jumped out to an early 4-1 lead in his second round match, but could not hold the lead as he lost the first set 6-4. The second set ended the same way with another 6-4 loss.

Terrell Whitehurst began his final match of the day with a 6-2 win in the first set over Ferran Calvo of Oklahoma. In the second set, Whitehurst fell 6-2. In his final set of the day Whitehurst once again fell 6-2.


Noles Continue to Play Well on Day Two at the Crimson Tide Four-In-The-Fall.
Redshirt senior Jose Gracia and freshman Chase Wood win first place in the Houndstooth doubles draw.

September 23, 2017

TUSCALOOSA, AL - The Florida State men's tennis team continue where they left on Friday, as redshirt senior Jose Gracia and freshman Chase Wood took home first place in the Houndstooth doubles bracket.

"I was pleased with how the team competed overall on another very hot day," said associate coach Ryler DeHeart.

Gracia and Wood defeated Pallares and Voges from Memphis 6-3, 6-0. This marked the fourth fall doubles tournament title for Gracia in his career, and the third doubles win and first championship for the freshman Wood.

"It is always a good day when you take a title, which Jose (Gracia) and Chase (Wood) did today in strong fashion," said DeHeart. "Jose has continued to be a dominant player especially in doubles for the Noles."

Seniors Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst lost a tough one in doubles to Broska and Foshey of Mississippi State 8-4, before withdrawing from their second doubles match.

In singles, the Noles were able to go 3-1 on the day. Wood continued the strong start to his career as he defeated Zhe Zhou of Alabama, 6-3, 6-0.

"Chase bounced back from a tough day yesterday to dominate his opponent today," said DeHeart.

October 14, 2017

ATLANTA, GA - Florida State men's tennis began play at the 2017 ITA Regional Championships hosted by Georgia Tech Saturday morning, taking four of eight singles matches, and three of four doubles matches. Championship play will continue Sunday through Tuesday.

"There were some really good performances today as well as some tough losses," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist.

In singles, fourth-seeded and No. 47 ranked Seminole, senior Guy Iradukunda captured the Noles first win of the day against Alex Philips of Georgia. Iradukunda took the match in straight sets 6-4, 6-0.

"Guy was dominant today," said Hultquist. "He was able to keep a good opponent from Georgia from winning a game in the second set."

Redshirt Senior and No. 50 ranked Lucas Poullain moved on to the second round after a tough three-set match against Chris Yun from tournament host, Georgia Tech. Lucas took the first set 6-4, before losing the second set in a tiebreaker, 7-6(4). Poullain pulled away for the third set win, 7-5.

"I was really pleased with Lucas's performance today," said Hultquist. "He came from behind to win the last three games of the match. It was a big win for him."

Florida State freshman Chase Wood extended his five-match singles win streak to six after a three-set victory. Wood brought down Loic Blanco from Stetson 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. Wood takes on 11th seeded and No. 102 ranked Jan Zielinski of Georgia in the second-round tomorrow.

"Chase continued his winning ways today taking down a good opponent from Stetson," said Hultquist.

Sophomore Alex Knaff defeated Lasse Muscheites of North Florida 7-6(3), 6-2. Knaff will take on ninth-seeded and No. 88 ranked McClain Kessler from the University of Florida in the second round.

In doubles, the Noles advanced two of their three doubles pairs to the round of 16. Iradukunda and Knaff came in as the sixth seed and received a bye in the first round. In the second round, the Seminoles duo won in dominating fashion, 6-1, over Hussey and Huynh of Georgia State.

Wood and Sophomore Rana-Roop Singh Bhullar received a bye into the second round as the tenth seed. They took on fellow Seminole teammates in the second round, seniors Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst. The Whitehurst brothers won their first-round match, 8-2 against Cerrini and Bates of FGCU. The brothers defeated their teammates Wood and Bhullar, 8-6, to advance to the round of 16.

"I am glad to see two of our doubles teams in the round of 16," said Hultquist. "It continues to show our growth and progress."

ATLANTA, GA - Seminole senior Guy Iradukunda and sophomore Alex Knaff advanced into the 2017 ITA Regional Championships quarterfinals in both singles and doubles on day two at the ITA Regional Championships hosted by Georgia Tech. Redshirt senior Jose Gracia is still alive in the consolation bracket.

"It is great to have three guys left with an opportunity to keep moving on and progress," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist.

Iradukunda and Knaff got the first win of the day for the Garnet and Gold in doubles play as they took down ninth-seeded Divar and Kay of host Georgia Tech 8-7(3).

Knaff and Iradukunda both advanced through the singles bracket as well. Iradukunda took down Michael Kay of Georgia Tech in his first match of the day 6-4, 7-5. In his second match, Iradukunda took on 13th seeded Oliver Crawford of Florida. Iradukunda lost the first set 6-1 but came back to win the second and third sets 7-5, 7-5 to advance to the quarterfinals.

"Guy went down a set in his second match today, but was able to fight hard and come from behind," said Hultquist. "It was a good win and he showed a lot of heart to stay in and come back. He did a really good job hanging in there."

Knaff had a tough match against ninth seed and No. 88 ranked McClain Kessler of Florida to begin his day. Knaff fell in a hole early after losing the first set 6-4. In the second set, they battled back in forth in the tiebreaker before Knaff pulled away to win 7-6(17), he also captured the third set 6-2.

"Alex had a tough win this morning," said Hultquist. "He won the second set after a 19-17 tiebreaker. He played outstanding. He was able to finish off the third set due to his big serving and ground play."

To reach the quarterfinals Knaff defeated Fermin Calvo of Kennesaw State in straight sets 6-1, 6-0.

Redshirt senior Jose Gracia was the lone Seminole to advance to the consolation quarterfinals after a 6-2, 6-2 win over Pierre Luquet of USF.

October 16, 2017

ATLANTA, GA - Seminole sophomore Alex Knaff advanced to the semifinal on Monday at the 2017 ITA Southeast Regional Championships hosted by Georgia Tech. Redshirt senior Jose Gracia moved into the finals of the consolation bracket.

"It has been a good tournament," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "I am pleased with Alex getting to the semifinals. This has easily been his best tournament at FSU. He grew as the tournament went on."

Knaff defeated Grayson Goldin of USF in three sets in his first singles match of the day. Knaff fell behind early after losing the first set 6-4. He was able to take the second set 6-3 and take an early 4-2 lead in the final set. Goldin tied it back up at four apiece, but Knaff pulled away, taking set three 6-4 to move onto the semifinals.

"In my first match, my opponent started well," said Knaff. "I didn't play my best today, but I hung in and tried to play my game. I got better as the match went on and was able to win even though I was not playing my best."

Knaff got off to a slow start in his semifinals match, losing the first set 6-3. He was unable to regain control as the second set went back and forth before Walker Duncan of Georgia pulled out the second set and the match 7-6.

"I faced off against another tough opponent," said Knaff. "I had some opportunities in the second set, but could not pull through. Overall, I am very happy with how I played today."

Gracia took on Jordan Belga of Florida in the quarterfinals of the consolation singles bracket. Gracia and Belga battled in the first set before Gracia came out on top 7-6(4). Gracia was too strong in the second as he dominated his way to a 6-1 second set win and a place in the consolation semifinals.

In the semifinals, Gracia continued where he left off in the quarterfinals and took down Alex Phillips of Georgia in two sets, 6-2, 6-3, to advance to the consolation finals tomorrow.

"I am very pleased with how Jose is playing," said Hultquist. "Being able to fight through the back draw after losing to the No. 1 seed in the first round is great and big for his confidence."

Knaff and senior Guy Iradukunda fell to Loeb and Zielinski of Georgia 8-6 in the doubles quarterfinal.

"We played well, but our opponent was very good," said Iradukunda. "Our opponent stepped up at the end to take the lead."

October 17, 2017

ATLANTA, GA - The ITA Regional Championships wrapped up on Tuesday with the consolation singles finals and doubles finals. In the consolation singles final, Seminole senior Jose Gracia took on Andy Andrade of Florida.

Gracia fell in a tough three-set match. He won the first set 6-2, but could not keep it rolling as he lost the ensuing two sets 6-3, 6-3.

"I was glad to see Jose make a run in the back draw at regionals," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "The back draw is not easy to play in, but he did well. It is good for his confidence and his development leading into the spring."

The Noles had two singles players, Guy Iradukunda and Alex Knaff, make it to singles quarterfinals with Knaff advancing to the semifinals at the ITA Regional Championship. Iradukunda and Knaff both advanced to the quarterfinals of doubles as well.

"I thought it was a good performance overall this weekend," said Hultquist. "Alex was definitely the highlight of the weekend. I liked how he fought hard, as well as how the rest of the team fought. I was very pleased with how we played and where we are at, but I want to keep getting better."

Men's Tennis Goes Unbeaten on Day One of the 2017 Oracle ITA Fall Championships.
Poullain, Iradukunda and Knaff all advanced to the singles round of 32, Poullain and Gracia advance to the doubles round of 16.

November 1, 2017

INDIAN WELLS, CA - In the 2017 Oracle ITA Fall Championships, which hosts the top singles and doubles players from around the country, the Florida State men's tennis team went unbeaten in both singles and doubles play on day one. Florida State is one of two schools to have three singles players left in the main draw, and the only school to have three singles players and one doubles team.

Redshirt senior Lucas Poullain got things started for the Garnet and Gold with a win against Ricky Hernandez Tong of New Mexico. Poullain cruised into the second round with a 6-0, 6-1 straight set victory.

"I played well in singles today," said Poullain. "I don't like to play against lefties, but I only made a few mistakes and played very solid. He made some mistakes, which really helped me out."

Sophomore Alex Knaff earned the Noles second landslide victory against Henry Patten of UNC-Ashville. Knaff won 6-3, 6-1.

"Alex won a big match today against the Carolina regional champion," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "He won four deuce points and played really aggressive. Alex was big at the net."

Senior Guy Iradukunda finished off Florida State's phenomenal day of singles play with a hard-fought three-set victory. Iradukunda took the first set 6-3 before losing the second set 6-2. Iradukunda took the third set against Eduardo Mena of Tennessee Tech 7-6 (5).

"It was a hot day," said Iradukunda. "I played well in my first set, but my opponent stepped it up in the second set. It was a close third set, but I was able to be aggressive and take set three."

"Guy's win was a good comeback," said Hultquist. "He did a great job of coming from behind in the third set."

In doubles, the Noles kept it rolling. Third-seeded Poullain and fellow redshirt senior Jose Gracia battled in the first set against Arizona State. After swapping points, the Seminole duo pulled away and took set one 7-5. Poullain and Gracia took the momentum into the second set and dominated the Sun Devils 6-1.

"We had a good start taking a 4-0 lead," said Poullain. "They came back in the first set to tie it at four. We were able to win a big point at 5-5 that allowed us to win the first set. The second set was a little easier and we were able to win big."

INDIAN WELLS, CA - On day two of the 2017 Oracle ITA Fall Championships, which hosts the top singles and doubles players from around the country, the Florida State men's tennis team advanced two singles players to day three. Florida State is one of two schools to have two singles players left in the main draw.

"I am proud of our guys today, especially Lucas," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist.

Redshirt senior Lucas Poullain and senior Guy Iradukunda advanced to the round of 16 after both winning their matches in straight sets. Poullain took down the two seed and No. 11 ranked Brandon Holt of USC. Poullain breezed through the first set 6-3. The second set was tied 3-3 before Poullain won three of the next four sets to take set two 6-4.

"Lucas has played two really good matches so far this tournament," said Hultquist. "He beat one of the best players in college tennis today in two seeded Brandon Holt."

Iradukunda gathered the Garnet and Gold's second singles win of the day and fifth of the tournament with a win over Jackie Tang of Columbia. After a tough three-set match yesterday, Iradukunda took down Tang in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3.

"Guy is having another good tournament," said Hultquist. "He played much sharper today and closed his match out by winning eight of his last nine points."

Poullain and doubles partner Jose Gracia faced off against Chema Carranza and Josef Dodridge of Wisconsin. They fell down early and lost the first set 6-1. The Seminole duo went down 4-1 in the second set before they started to make a comeback. They could not hold on as they lost the second set 6-4.

"I am really pleased with Jose's and Alex's results from the weekend," said Hultquist. "Alex has played a good fall and has continued to develop as a player."

The Seminoles will have a chance to play in two matches tomorrow as both the round of 16 and the quarterfinals are played on Friday.

Men's Tennis Opens Season With A Shutout Victory Over Hawai'i.
Seminoles start the season 1-0 after defeating Hawai'i 7-0.

HONOLULU, HI - The No. 21 ranked Florida State men's tennis team (1-0) got their season started on the right note with a 7-0 domination of the University of Hawai'i (0-1).

"The season got started really quick," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "We did not have much time to practice and we started quicker than I would normally like. We got off to a 1-0 start and hopefully, we can build on that and get better."

It all got started on the doubles courts as the Seminoles swept the Warriors. Redshirt senior Guy Iradukunda and junior Aziz Dougaz earned the first doubles point for the Garnet and Gold as they earned a 6-4 victory over Blaz Seric and Lucas Labrunie of Hawai'i. Redshirt seniors Jose Gracia and Lucas Poullain clinched the doubles point as they took down Fabian Woehrl and Felix Albert 6-3. Senior twins, Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst capped off the doubles competition with the Seminoles third win, 6-3.

"It was nice to get all three of the doubles matches," said Hultquist. "I thought Hawai'i did a pretty good job of hanging in there. We ended up serving out all three of them. They were tight sets, 6-3, 6-3 and 6-4."

Florida State took their momentum from the doubles round and brought it into singles play as they swept the singles competition.

"We had a really good start in singles," said Hultquist. "Actually, won the first sets fairly handily. I thought Hawai'i did a nice job of staying in the match, winning two of the second sets and being up a break in the third one. I thought Hawai'i fought hard and has a good team. They clearly didn't go away, and it got harder in the second sets."

Poullain got things started as he ran through his opponent 6-2, 6-3. Iradukunda followed him up with a 6-4, 6-3 victory to give the Noles a 3-0 advantage over the Sandbows. Freshman Chase Wood earned his first match-clinching point as he took down Fabian Woehrl on court five.

The Garnet and Gold did not stop there as sophomore Rana-Roop Singh Bhullar earned a 6-4, 7-6 victory on court six. The Noles pulled ahead 6-0 when Dougaz fought to a three-set, 6-1, 6-7, 6-3 victory. Gracia capped off the sweep for the Garnet and Gold with a three-set victory of his own.

"I was pleased that we got all wins, but tomorrow is another day and we are going to have new match-ups," said Hultquist.

Senior Guy Iradukunda and junior Aziz Dougaz rounded out the Seminole's doubles performance with a 6-2 win over Fabian Woehrl and Felix Albert on court one.

"I thought we played a little better as a team in doubles today," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "The guys came out and won pretty quick, and we only lost four total games in the doubles. I was happy with our doubles. They were a lot sharper today."

The Seminoles got off to a hot start in singles with Gracia getting the first singles win on court five, 6-2, 6-2. Poullain gave the Noles a 3-0 lead after defeating Felix Albert 6-3, 6-2.

Freshman Sebastian Arcila gave the Seminoles a 5-0 lead over the Sandbows with a 6-3, 6-4 win against Tristan Martins for his first career win.

"I was glad to see Sebastian get his first collegiate win," said Hultquist. "I thought he played a good match today."

Freshman Chase Wood advanced to 2-0 on the season after defeating Aleksa Lazarevic on court four, 6-2, 1-6, 6-2. Dougaz wrapped things up for the Noles winning a third set tiebreaker on court one and giving the Noles a 7-0 win.

"I was proud of Aziz fighting back from being down a break in the third and coming back to win," said Hultquist. "Chase was down a break in the third as well but was able to come back and win. It has been a good two day start to the season."

No. 21 Men's Tennis Extend Their Win Streak to Three.
Seminoles improve to 3-0 after defeating Texas Tech.

HONOLULU, HI - The No. 21 ranked Florida State men's tennis team (3-0) continued their hot start by defeating No. 24 Texas Tech (1-1) 6-1, to earn head coach Dwayne Hultquist his 33rd career victory against a Top-25.

"I thought this match was good early season win," said Hultquist. "For us to get a Top-25 before most people have even played is great. To get off to a 3-0 start is great as well."

The Seminoles earned their third doubles point of the season after taking the matches on courts one and three. Seniors, Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst got things started for the Noles in doubles as they swiftly took down their opponent 6-3. On court one redshirt seniors Jose Gracia and Lucas Poullain battled against Texas Tech's No. 29 ranked doubles team of Jackson Cobb and Alex Sendegeya. After being tied 2-2 Gracia and Poullain fell behind before tying it back up at five all. The Seminole duo pulled ahead and earned a 7-5 win on court one to clinch the doubles point.

Senior Guy Iradukunda earned the Noles first singles point after defeating Artem Kapshuk 7-5, 6-3 on court three. Poullain quickly followed as he made quick work of Connor Curry on court two, 6-3, 6-1.

In the third set on the last four courts, the Seminoles fought. Gracia fell in two sets, 7-6 (4), 6-4, leaving the Seminoles a 3-1 lead. Not too long after junior Aziz Dougaz clinched the match for the Garnet and Gold with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 victory on court one.

"It was a good day for us as a team," said Dougaz. "I didn't play my best tennis on this trip. We were able to fight has a team and give everything we had even on the bad days and that is the mentality of the team and what will allow us to go far this season. I think it is important to say even when we are not playing our best tennis we are mentally there and that is what is going to allow us to go far this season."

Sophomore Rana-Roop Singh Bhullar and freshman Chase Wood finished things up for the Noles giving them a 6-1 victory over the Red Raiders. Wood fought down a 5-3 deficit to win his match 7-5.

"I think the one thing that showed today was how much depth we have," said Hultquist. "We played without Alex Knaff and were able to get some good wins on courts five and six with Chase and Rana. We have a lot of depth up top without Top-3 guys being high ranked players. We got straight set wins from Lucas and Guy to put us in control and then Aziz did a nice job of clinching after dropping the first set."

No. 21 Florida State Men's Tennis Advances to Finals of the FSU Spring Invitational.
The Seminoles go 2-0, defeating Louisiana 4-0 and Georgia State 4-0.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 21 ranked Florida State men's tennis team (5-0) went 2-0 on the day. They defeated Louisiana 4-0 in the first round and Georgia State 4-0 in the semifinals to advance to the finals against Furman.

"It was a good day today," said head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "Even though we won 4-0 and 4-0, they were not easy matches. We were pushed and the top of our lineup played really well. I was pleased how we responded to being down in doubles today. Our energy level was good in the second match and I look forward to bringing that to the finals tomorrow."

Due to the cold weather, the Noles took on the Ragin Cajuns in the FSU Indoor Tennis courts. All six singles courts began at once as the Garnet and Gold jumped out to a hot start, winning set one on all six courts. Florida State then turned that into a 4-0 victory against Louisiana.

Redshirt senior Lucas Poullain got a quick win on court three as he dominated his opponent 6-0, 6-0. Junior Aziz Dougaz gave the Noles a 2-0 lead with a 6-2, 6-3 win on court two. On court one, senior Guy Iradukunda took down his opponent 6-3, 6-4 to give Florida State an almost insurmountable lead.

Senior Terrell Whitehurst earned his first match-clinching win in his first singles match of the season. He defeated Pearse Dolan on court five 6-3, 7-5.

The Noles continued their hot play in the semifinals as they took on Georgia State.

The Noles fought in a tough doubles battle but pulled out the doubles point for the fourth time this season. Dougaz and Iradukunda earned the first doubles victory and the Whitehurst twins clinched the doubles point with stellar play.

In singles, Poullain once again made quick work and won 6-1, 6-1. Dougaz followed that up winning on court one 6-3, 6-1. Iradukunda clinched the match for the Noles on court two to advance them to the finals.

No. 21 Florida State Men's Tennis Wins FSU Spring Invitational; Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist earns 300th career win.
The Seminoles defeated Furman 4-0 to win the Florida State Spring Invitational.

TALLAHASSEE, FL – The No. 21 ranked Florida State men’s tennis team (6-0) kept their win streak alive as they defeated Furman in the finals of the FSU Spring Invitational and captured head coach Dwayne Hultquist’s 300th career win.

“It was a good weekend for us,” said Hultquist. “Going through the tournament without dropping a point is a significant achievement and showed that we are ready to go every day.”

“I didn’t even realize it until some of the guys told me before the match. You get some of those milestones as a function of doing this for a long time, but it is nice to get to 300 wins.”

Seniors, and twins, Terrance and Terrell Whitehurst finished their impressive doubles performance this weekend as they earned the Seminoles’ first doubles win on court three, 6-1. Senior Guy Iradukunda and junior Aziz Dougaz clinched the doubles point for the Garnet and Gold on court two with a 6-2 win over Furman’s Cameron Green and Drew Singerman.

“I really liked how the Whitehursts played doubles today,” said Hultquist. “They got us off to a quick start and helped us to the early doubles point.”

In singles, the top of the lineup performed well, just like they have all season long. Dougaz earned his sixth win of the season and fourth on court number one to give Florida State a 2-0 lead. Iradukunda earned his sixth win as well, this time on court three with a 6-3, 6-2.

Redshirt senior Jose Gracia clinched the match for the Noles improving him to 3-1 on the season. He took down Drew Singerman 6-2, 6-4 on court four.

“This weekend prepares us for later this season when you have to play back to back days in tough matches,” said Hultquist. “We have played six matches in the last 10 days and that is a lot of matches and it has made us sharper.”
