Lead Story

Weather forced the match indoors, but that didn’t make a difference to Florida State men’s tennis on Sunday. The Seminoles dominated Georgia Southern, 7-0.

After taking a hard-fought doubles point, four FSU players won their singles matches in straight sets. John Bernard clinched the victory for the Seminoles with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Georgia Southern’s Laurent Julia Calac.

Andreja Petrovic, Josh Karpenschif and Maks Silagy also won in straight sets for FSU. Loris Pourroy and Youcef Rihane bounced back from first-set losses to complete the perfect day for the Seminoles.

With the win, FSU moves to 2-0 on the season. FSU will play three matches in two days, beginning with South Alabama on Friday.
