In the biggest tournament of the fall for the men’s tennis team, the Polo Ralph Lauren All-American Tennis Championships in Tulsa, Okla., junior Cosmin Cotet won five matches in a row in the singles qualifying bracket, which was by far the best showing of any individual TCU player.The tournament began Sept. 30 and ended Sunday.
Cotet’s most impressive win came in the first round of the qualifying bracket when he upset the tournament’s No. 5 seed Bruno Agostinelli of the University of Kentucky.
Cotet fell one match short of qualifying for the tournament’s main draw Oct. 4 with a loss to David North of Georgia Tech.
Cotet also reached the second round of qualifying in doubles play with senior teammate Radu Barbu.
After the tournament, head coach Dave Borelli said he was happy the team gained tournament experience with Cotet playing as well as he did, and said he is excited about the rest of the season.
