Men's Tennis Has Mixed Results on Day One of USF Invite
Jan. 12, 2008
TAMPA, Fla. - Playing on the first of three days of tournament play at the USF Spring Invitational, the University of Memphis men's tennis team found some mixed successes on day one.
The doubles team of Charlie Ramsay and Amrit Narasimhan defeated the No. 1 team of Thomas Estrada and Daniel Daudt, 9-7, and newcomer Leon Naseman won his first match in a Tiger uniform, 6-3, 6-3, over Estrada in Flight C Singles.
Narasimhan had the unenviable task of facing a nationally-ranked singles player to begin his final spring season, falling to No. 84 Mahmoud Hamed, 6-3, 6-1, in Flight A Singles. Teammates Charlie Ramsay, Michael Gaerthoeffner, Spencer Heflin and Benedikt Fischer all lost their respective singles matches in straight sets.
The Tigers will remain at the tournament for two more days of play before returning to participate in an Alumni Match, Jan. 20th, at 6 p.m. at The Racquet Club of Memphis.
