UGA Men's Tennis Team Reach Finals of SEC Indoors But Fall Short of Repeating as Champs

Play in the SEC Coaches' Indoor Tennis Championships wrapped up yesterday, 16 January 2012, with Georgia's Sadio Doumbia playing for the singles title and the team of Wil Spencer and Garrett Brasseaux vying for the doubles championship. Host Kentucky's Anthony Rossi defeated Doumbia 6-4, 6-3, while twin Ole Miss Rebels Chris and Marcel Thiemann won the doubles competition over Spencer and Brasseaux 8-3.

It's a disappointment not to repeat the conference indoor championship sweep from 2011, but reaching the finals in both singles and doubles for the third consecutive year shows the strength of the men's tennis program. Georgia opens 2012 match play against visiting Clemson this Saturday, 21 January, 1:00 p.m., at the Dan Magill Tennis Center. Be sure to check back early and often for all your Dawg Sports news.
