CARY, N.C. -
The men's tennis team had a solid final day of play at the Duke Fab Four Invite, coming away with four wins in four matches at the Sheffield Tennis Center. Overall, the Crimson Tide collected 15 wins in its first tournament of the season.
"The Duke Fab Four Invite is an ideal event," said Alabama head coach George Husack. "The format challenges players physically and mentally. We will take several things back with us to work on and prepare for our next tournaments."
Daniil Proskura cruised through his match, beating NC State's Sean Weber, 6-0, 6-2, while Carlos Taborga also won in dominating fashion, posting a 6-2, 6-1 victory over North Carolina's James Coxe. Becker O'Shaughnessey took down Duke's Daniel McCall, 6-3, 6-2, and Jarryd Botha capped off the tournament with a 7-6(4), 6-3 win over Radford's Stijn Meulmans.
Alabama returns to action on Monday, Oct. 1, when it takes part in the qualifying round of play at the 2012 D'Novo/ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla.
