Doubles duos Giles Hussey & Jack MacFarlane and Andrei Duarte & Roberts Grinvalds are both on four-match win streaks in doubles play. Hussey and MacFarlane boast an undefeated record at the No. 1 position while Duarte and Grinvalds sit at a perfect 3-0 at the No. 3 spot. Grinvalds, a freshman from Bigaunciems, Latvia, was named Sun Belt Men’s Tennis Player of the Week after finishing last week 7-1 overall.
ETSU (7-3) is on a four-match win streak, with three of the victories coming as 7-0 sweeps. The Bucs are led by sophomore Frazier Rengifo, who owns a 9-1 overall record, including a 5-1 mark at the No. 1 position. In the most recent meeting between the two programs, GSU won 5-2 during the 2018 campaign.
Southern Miss (4-3) returns to the court after a 4-1 victory over Nicholls State on Feb. 24. Wen-Po Tseng leads the Golden Eagles with a 15-0 record this season, with six wins coming at the No. 4 position. Saturday’s matchup will be just the second time in program history GSU has faced Southern Miss.
