The Minnesota men’s tennis team will kick off its fall season Monday afternoon when Leandro Toledo travels to Tulsa, Okla. to compete it the qualifying round of the 2013 Saint Francis ITA Men's All-American Championships. Toledo, the 53rd-ranked player in the nation, will take on No. 116 Benjamin Lock of Florida State in the first round.
The match, played at the University of Tulsa’s Michael D. Case Tennis Center, will begin at 3:30 p.m. The first round of the draw includes 128 of the nation’s top players.
Toledo, who ended last year’s spring season ranked No. 80, is coming off a 25-11 season, including an 8-4 ledger in fall play. At the All-American Championships a season ago, the Hamburg, Germany native dropped matches to Emilio Gomez of USC and Malte Stropp of Mississippi State in the main draw.
Fellow junior Lock finished his sophomore season with a 21-15 singles record, including a 6-4 mark in the fall. A native of Harare, Zimbabwe, Lock is one of four players from Florida State to make the trip to Tulsa.
The winner of the match will play the winner of the match between Max Schnur of Columbia and Behzad Minavi of Texas A&M Tuesday. A field of 64 singles players will then compete in the main draw which begins Thursday.
Singles quarterfinalists will receive an automatic entry into the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships on Nov. 7-10, held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, NY.
Following Toledo’s appearance at the All-American Championships this week, the Gophers will pick up play back in Tulsa at the USTA/ITA Regional Championships Oct. 17-21.
