ATLANTA – Georgia State men’s tennis continues its fall tournament slate this weekend, as the Panthers will have players competing in both the Pro Circuit Futures in Niceville, Fla., and the Georgia Tech Fall Invitational in Atlanta.
GSU returns to the court after the Pro Circuit Futures in Birmingham, Ala., where Quentin Coulaud, Roberts Grinvalds and Giles Hussey all had some success. Hussey headlined the group, winning all four of his matches in the Qualifying Draw before falling to Riccardo Roberto 4-6, 5-7 in the Main Draw.
Hussey started with a 6-2, 6-0 victory over his opponent in round one and defeated Rafael Tosetto 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in round two. The Swindon, England, native then won 6-2, 6-2 in round three and knocked off Scott Jones in round four 1-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Coulaud won his first two matches of the Qualifying Draw then dropped a three-set match in round three. He opened with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Jordi Redelijk and then defeated William Grant 6-2, 7-6(3). Grinvalds won his first match 6-1, 6-2 over Fernando Vargas before falling in three sets in round two.
Coulaud, Grinvalds and Hussey will look to build off last week and will again represent Georgia State in the Pro Circuit Futures this weekend in Florida.
The Panthers will have four players competing at the Georgia Tech Fall Invitational. Andrei Duarte, Kevin Huynh, Patrick Lazo and Bailey Showers will take the court in both singles and doubles play. The group returns to action after a strong showing in the ITA Southeast Regional.
Both the Pro Circuit Futures and Georgia Tech Fall Invitational begin Friday morning and conclude Sunday afternoon.
