ITA All-American: Singles Qualifying | Doubles Qualifying | Singles Main | Singles Consolation
TULSA, Okla. – Gopher Men’s Tennis senior Matic Spec picked up another consolation draw victory but saw his bid end in the quarterfinals of the tournament at the St. Francis Health ITA Men’s All-American Championships on Saturday afternoon.
After falling in the first round of the main draw on Thursday, Spec rebounded with a consolation bracket victory on Friday afternoon. Saturday saw his first two-match day of the week, defeating Peter Bertran of USF 7-5, 6-2 in the round of 16. He was ousted from the quarterfinals in three sets, falling to Nathan Ponwith of Georgia 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.
Spec and fellow senior Felix Corwin represented the Gophers at the tournament. Corwin picked up a pair of victories in the singles qualifying draw earlier in the week, falling in the Qualifying Round, one victory away from joining his teammate in the main draw. The duo also competed in the doubles qualifying tournament, falling in their lone outing against a duo from Florida.
The Maroon & Gold will next be in action at the Baseline Tennis Center when Minnesota hosts the ITA Central Regional Championship in two weeks beginning Thursday, Oct. 19.
