BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana University men's tennis team takes on Toledo (10 a.m.) and Murray State (4 p.m.) on Saturday, Jan. 20. Last week, Indiana began its 2007 dual-meet campaign victorious, defeating Morehead State, 6-1, then downing IPFW, 7-0, on Jan. 15.
Murray State begins its dual-meet season with the Hoosiers. The Racers return seniors Fadi Zamjaoui (No. 1 singles, 14-4) and Dmytro Hryhorash (No. 2 singles, 12-6). The duo paired up to go 10-8 at No. 1 doubles last year.
Toledo lost 6-1 to Michigan State on Jan. 13 to start the year. Notable for the Rockets is the doubles team of Jared Miller and Mohammed Al Nabhani, who advanced to the quarterfinals this fall at the ITA Regionals. Al Nabhani was a first team All-MAC selection last year, while Miller was named to the second team.
HOOSIERS RANKED IN FIRST ITA RANKINGS
In the first Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) FILA Collegiate Tennis Rankings of the 2006-07 season, the Hoosiers are ranked at No. 58. The ranking is equal to Indiana's final ranking of the 2005-06 year.
BUBENICEK NAMED BIG TEN PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Senior David Bubenicek was named Big Ten Player of the Week on Jan. 18 for his performance in Indiana's first matches of the spring campaign. He won his first two singles matches of the spring campaign against Morehead State and IPFW, competing at No. 1. Bubenicek is currently 12-3 on the year. He also went 2-0 at No. 2 doubles with Peter Antons to start the year. Bubenicek is ranked at No. 48 in the first ITA singles rankings of the year.
THREE JOIN HOOSIERS FOR SPRING SEASON
Three new faces join Indiana for the spring tennis campaign. Thomas Richter is a transfer from Birmingham-Southern, and is a junior in eligibility, but is in graduate school. Richter was ranked at No. 119 in April 2006 in the ITA singles rankings. He went 1-1 at No. 3 singles against Morehead State and IPFW, and earned a 1-1 record at No. 1 doubles with junior Dara McLoughlin.
Phillip Eillers is a freshman from Germany, while Lachlan Ferguson is a freshman from Australia. Both bring solid juniors credentials to the Hoosiers.
