April 8, 2014

ROSEMONT, Ill. – Minnesota men’s tennis junior Leandro Toledo was named the Big Ten Men’s Tennis Athlete of the Week, the league announced Tuesday afternoon. The honor is the second of the season for Toledo and the team as a whole and is the third of the Hamburg, Germany-native’s career.

Along with Toledo, Rok Bonin and Juan Pablo Ramirez gave the Gophers three weekly league award winners last season. Toledo’s first honor of 2014 came Jan. 28.

Last weekend, Toledo registered a pair of straight-sets singles victories over top-50 opponents. Friday, in a loss to top-ranked Ohio State, he defeated No. 8 Peter Kobelt, 6-1, 7-6 (5). The Karthause Gymnasium product then dispatched No. 50 Leonard Stakhovsky of Penn State (6-2, 6-4) Sunday.

With the pair of wins, Toledo moved from No. 66 to No. 41 in the ITA’s national singles rankings. He is now 15-4 on the season with all his matches coming at the No. 1 position. He is 5-1 versus ranked foes.

The No. 55-ranked Gophers will host No. 43 Michigan Friday before wrapping up their home schedule Sunday with a tilt against Michigan State. Ramirez will be honored as the team’s only senior between doubles play and singles play against the Spartans.
