Ghorbel Chosen As MVC Men's Tennis Player Of The Week
ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The Missouri Valley Conference has announced that Drake junior Anis Ghorbel (Sfax, Tunisia) has been selected as the MVC Men's Tennis Player of the Week. This marks the seventh weekly accolade for a Drake men's tennis player this season and the fifth in Ghorbel's career, including three this spring.
Ghorbel turned in a perfect 7-0 combined singles/doubles ledger this past week, helping the then No. 45 Bulldogs to a 4-0 mark.
He earned two clinching points, including the match winner with a 6-4, 6-3 decision against Michael Tenzer of Green Bay last Sunday (March 25).
His come-from-behind 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 victory over Gaston Cuadranti enabled Drake to garner a 4-3 road victory at SMU.
On the year, Ghorbel owns a team-high 40-10 combined singles/doubles record, including a team-best 23-5 singles mark.
Ghorbel and the Bulldogs (17-2) open defense of their 2011 Missouri Valley Conference title hosting Creighton on Saturday (March 31) at the Roger Knapp Tennis Center. Match time is slated for 10:00 a.m.
