Nov. 14, 2001
The Tennessee tennis team ended its fall schedule Wednesday when the doubles tandem of Mario Toledo and Simon Rea fell at the USTA/UT Challenger being held at the Goodfriend Indoor Tennis center on the UT campus.
The Vol duo ended a promising fall season with a loss in the first round of the main doubles draw. Toledo and Rea played well, but the No. 2 seeded duo of Stephen Huss and Paul Rosner proved to be too much, taking a 6-3, 6-4 win.
The Vols will next be in action Jan. 7, 2002 at the USTA Futures of Florida.
