Gophers Hit the Clay to Finish Fall
Franz Sydow is 1-2 in singles play this fall.

Nov. 7, 2013

Four members from the Minnesota men's tennis team will wrap up the fall season this weekend with a trip to Sarasota, Fla. for the 2013 Lakewood Ranch Intercollegiate Clay Court Classic. Juniors Leandro Toledo, Mathieu Froment, and Jack Hamburg, and freshman Franz Sydow will all make the trip for the Gophers.

Minnesota will join players from Arizona, Memphis, Florida Gulf Coast, Bates, North Florida, Florida, Duke, Princeton and defending and defending national champion Virginia in the tournament that will feature a 32-player singles draw and a 16-team doubles draw.

Play begins Friday and runs through Sunday. 

All four Gophers will play in the singles tournament and the red-hot duo of Hamburg and Froment will join the tandem of Toledo and Sydow in the doubles draw.

Both Hamburg and Toledo enter the weekend with 2-2 singles records, while Sydow is 1-2 after making his singles debut at last week's Gopher Invitational last weekend. Froment has gone 1-2 in two singles tournaments for a 2-4 ledger on the weekend.

After 2013 USTA/ITA Division I Men's Central Regional Championship final, Hamburg and Froment went undefeated at the Gopher Invite to improve to 8-1 on the fall.

Toledo and Sydow have not yet played together in doubles. Sydow is still seeking his first collegiate doubles win, while Toledo has gone 2-1 with fellow third-year player Eric Frueh.

Following the weekend, Minnesota will have two months off before kicking off its spring season at Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Okla. Jan. 19.
