JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (September 9, 2010) - After winning its fourth straight A-Sun Championship a year ago, the ETSU men's tennis team will kick of its 2010 fall tournament season on Friday at the UVA Invitational in Charlottesville, Va.

The Bucs return seven key members from last year's championship team, including 2010 Atlantic Sun Player of the Year Sander Gille (Kuringen, Belgium) and NCAA Singles Championship participant Charles Bottoni (Bois Guillaume, France). The Bucs also return all-conference members Robin Akser (Ornskoldsvik, Sweden) and Grega Teraz (Mojstrana,, Slovenia) as well as all-freshman member Jesus Bandres (Caracas, Venezuela).

There are also two new faces on this year's squad.
