Glennon Picks up First Career ATP Singles Point
Nov. 1, 2012
PENSACOLA, Fla. - - Sophomore men's tennis player Connor Glennon picked up his first career singles ATP point with a 6-3, 7-5 win over Zimbabwe's Takanyi Garanganga, the No. 5 seed in the draw and the No. 479th ranked player in the world, on Wednesday night.
Glennon already has 30 ATP doubles points, but the win on Wednesday gave him his first career singles point.
His run came to an end in the Round of 16 as Germany's Pirmin Haenle and Glennon split the first two sets, but Haenle prevailed 6-4 in the third set.
Teammate Joe Salisbury also won his way to the main draw, but lost to Jason Jung from the USA, 7-5, 6-0. Jung is the No. 591 ranked player in the country and already has won one Futures singles and doubles event this summer, winning the F21 in Godfrey, Illinois, and the doubles drown at the Canada F5 event.
The Tigers will continue on with another ITF tournament, the USA F31 tournament, in Niceville, Fla., beginning on November 5th. That tournament will again start with 128 players in the prequalifying rounds.
