Men’s Tennis Set to Face Stanford in First Round of NCAA’s

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA—The LSU men’s tennis team kicks off their NCAA Tournament campaign on Saturday, May 8 at 9:00 a.m. at the Virginia Tennis Facility.

The Tigers make their first appearance in the NCAA Championships since 2016. It’s also the first appearance that co-head coaches Andy and Chris Brandi have made in the NCAA Championships since they’ve been at the helm of LSU, a step in the right direction for the Tigers.

Scouting the Cardinals

LSU’s first round matchup is against one of the most storied franchises in all of college tennis, the Stanford Cardinals. The Cardinals have 17 National Championships under their belt with their last coming in 2000. This season, Stanford holds a 10-5 overall record with a 6-1 record in the Pac-12. The Cardinals have two ranked singles players in No. 78 Arthur Fery and No. 104 Axel Geller. Fery has hopped around courts this season but has played most of his matches on court two, where he holds a 6-2 record. Geller has been Stanford’s court one player this season where he’s 5-6.
