Tennis Vols Close Out Fall Schedule

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.
