Earlier today we saw Liam Draxl hold court as the No. 1 overall seed with a second-round win over No. 36 Axel Nefve. Draxl won 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to advance to the Sweet 16.

Now we turn our attention to Draxl’s UK teammate, Gabriel Diallo, as Diallo faces Martim Prata of Tennessee in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Also representing Big Blue Nation, in the NCAA Women’s Tennis Tournament UK doubles tandem Fiona Arrese and Akvile Paražinskaite are seeded first in the field and currently competing against Brooke Killingsworth and Anna Brylin from Wake Forest in the first round. If they can advance, Arrese and Paražinskaite will be one step closer to the first doubles championship in school history. UK’s best finish is a runner-up trophy in 2003.

    Out of curiosity I checked the rosters for the men’s and women’s tennis teams, only two on each roster are from the US….interesting. Four women from Spain and two from Russia.
