Nov. 10, 2013
The Minnesota men’s tennis team finished its fall season Sunday with a singles loss and a doubles loss at the 2013 Dick Vitale Lakewood Ranch Intercollegiate Clay Court Classic in Sarasota, Fla. Sunday. Both matches were championship contests in their respective draws.
The loss halted a seven-match winning steak for the junior duo, which finished 11-2 on the fall season and is now 18-10 together. The tandem also reached the ITA Central Region final and went a perfect 4-0 in its last tournament, the Gopher Invitational.
Following the doubles loss, Froment dropped the singles consolation draw final. After dropping a grueling 7-6 (11) first set, he fell 6-2 in the second set. The Longwy, France native is now 4-6 heading into the spring portion of the year.
Minnesota will now have two months off before kicking off its spring season at Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla. Jan. 19.
