TULSA, Okla. (Sept. 30, 2013) – Four ETSU men’s tennis players will compete in the qualifiers of the 2013 ITA All-American Championships Tuesday, Oct. 1.

After winning twice Sunday to advance to the final round of the pre-qualifiers, Rogerio Ribeiro fell to Texas A&M’s Behzad Minavi, 7-6 (5), 6-2, but entered the qualifying round as a lucky loser. Ribeiro then proceeded to beat UNLV's Gilda Berman in the opening round of the qualifier.

Ribeiro will compete in the second round of the singles qualifiers Tuesday, while he and three of his ETSU teammates will compete in the first round of the doubles qualifiers.

David Biosca and Roger Ordeig will take on Morgan State’s Evan Ward and Duk Young Park in the doubles qualifiers, while Ribeiro and Diego Nunez will team up to face Raphael Davidian and Tyler Pham of UC Irvine.
