JOHNSON CITY, Tenn.
(Sept. 16, 2010) - After an impressive opening weekend, the ETSU men's tennis team returns to action this weekend as they will participate in the Duke Fab Four Invite, beginning on Friday afternoon.

ETSU freshman Jorge Varon (Valencia, Venezuela) won the gold flight singles championship to lead the Bucs at the UVA Fall Invitational this past weekend. Varon, who was making his first appearance in a collegiate tournament, defeated Camill Salomon of VCU, 6-4, 6-4 in the finals to earn the title. Varon won four straight matches on the weekend to gain the championship.

Varon will take on Chris Mengel of Duke in the opening round of Section B singles on Friday afternoon at 2:30 p.m.
Jesus Bandres (Caracas, Venezuela) also had a successful final day in Charlottesville as he earned fifth place in the white singles bracket. Bandres knocked off Gilbert Wong of Binghamton in the fifth place match, 6-2, 6-3. Bandres will take on Cale Hammond of Duke in the opening round of Section B singles and will team up with Varon for doubles action Friday morning in Section B doubles.

No. 93 ranked Grega Teraz (Mojstrana, Slovenia) will see his first action of the season this weekend as he will battle Jake Bowling of South Carolina in the opening round of the Section A singles. Teraz finished last season with a 19-15 overall singles mark and was named First-Team All-Atlantic Sun.

Freshman Roger Ordeig (Gurb, Spain) got his first taste of collegiate tournament action last weekend and will take on the No. 63 ranked player in the country, Simon Childs of Louisville. Ordeig will also team with Teraz in Section C doubles action. The duo is the top-seeded team in Section C doubles.

Following the Duke Fab Four Invite, the Bucs will return to action on September 24 as they will travel to Athens, Ga. for the Southern Intercollegiate.
