TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Furman men's tennis team opened the 2018 season Saturday with a 4-3 victory over Florida Atlantic in the opening round of the FSU Spring Invitational at the Florida State indoor tennis facility in Tallahassee, Fla. 

Due to inclement weather in the Tallahassee area, the tournament was moved indoors and singles matches were played first.  The Paladins claimed wins in the top three singles matches.  Senior Cameron Green came from behind to beat Remi Chancerel, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, at flight one, and junior Jake Munns outlasted Ignacio Garcia, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, in the second-seeded spot.  At flight three, rookie Ivan Mitric defeated Anthony Schohn, 6-4, 6-3.

The Owls captured the bottom three flights of singles.  Jason Legall defeated freshman Drew Singerman, 7-5, 6-3, and Gabriel Sidney downed Jake Bhangdia, 6-4, 6-3.  In the flight six match-up, Thomas Bugeaujd topped freshman Daniel Vishnick, 6-0, 6-4.

With the match knotted at 3-all, the teams entered doubles play where Munns teamed with Mitric for a 6-0 victory over Chancerel and Sidney in the top-seeded match, then Garcia and Schohn evened the slate with a 6-4 advantage versus sophomore Jake Bhangdia and junior Alex Steryous at flight three.  In the decisive flight two contest, Green and Singerman held on for a 7-6 win to clinch both the doubles point and the match.

Furman (1-0) will face North Florida Saturday at 4:30 in the second round of the tournament.
