After being edged in a tight match in the first day of play at the 2013 Saint Francis ITA Men's All-American Championships at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Okla., Minnesota men's tennis junior Leandro Toledo recovered and finished his tournament with a win Tuesday afternoon. Toledo defeated South Carolina freshman Andrew Schafer 7-5, 6-3 in consolation play.

Toledo, who dropped his first-round qualifying-draw match against No. 116 Benjamin Lock of Florida State is now 1-1 on the fall season. He went 8-4 last fall en route to a 25-11 season overall.

In his first match of the season Monday afternoon, Toledo lost 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 to fellow third-year player Lock, who had won his first two matches of the year a week ago. Schafer was coming off a 6-4, 6-4 loss to Connor Glennon of Memphis Monday in the first round.

Toledo's pair of matches were the first of the season for any player on the Gophers.

The next time Minnesota will see action will be Oct. 17-21 back in Tulsa at the USTA/ITA Regional Championships.
