Men's Tennis Begins Season at ULL Invite

BATON ROUGE – Several members of the LSU men’s tennis team will kick off the 2010 fall tournament season this weekend at 8:30 a.m. (CT) in the University of Louisiana-Lafayette Invitational at Cajun Courts in Lafayette, La.

Senior Cody Loup, junior Jordan Girdley, junior David Roberts and sophomore Olivier Borsos will represent the Tigers at the tournament, which runs through Sunday.

Loup, Borsos and Roberts will compete in flight A of the singles bracket, while Girdley will take the court in flight B. The Tigers will also participate in the doubles portion of the tournament, with Loup and Borsos pairing up in the top flight, and Roberts and Girdley teaming up in flight B.

“This is a good opportunity for these four guys to get some experience playing in the top flights,” said LSU head coach Jeff Brown. “We are looking for one of these guys to break through and make a run and get the season started off right.”

Other teams competing in the tournament include Tulane, Southern Mississippi, Lamar, Oachita Baptist, Xavier of New Orleans and host team UL-Lafayette.
