Sunday November 10, 2013Diep and Piro Win Doubles Title at 2013 Dick Vitale Clay Court Classic

Lakewood Ranch, FL

Seniors Florent Diep and Stephane Piro won the doubles title at the 2013 Dick Vitale Lakewood Ranch Intercollegiate Clay Court Classic on Sunday morning, beating Minnesota’s Mathieu Froment and Jack Hamburg 8-5.

 

Diep and Piro, playing doubles together for the first time at Florida, had a very successful weekend on the clay courts. After a bye in the first round, the pair beat Florida Gulf Coast’s Tianyu Bao and Lancy Lvovsky 8-3 in the Quarterfinals on Friday evening.

 

On Saturday, the Florida duo took down Virginia’s Luca Corintelli and Harrison Richmond, ranked No. 55 in the ITA Doubles Rankings this fall. Then on Sunday they continued their good play by beating Froment and Hamburg to take home the Gators first title of the 2013-14 season.

 

With the conclusion of this event, the Gators fall season is completed. They will return to action for two more individual tournaments in January before starting the dual season on January 22 against UNF in Gainesville.

 

 

From the Coach – Volunteer Assistant Coach Scott Perelman

“We are very happy for Flo and Steph to take the doubles title here at the Dick Vitale Classic. All of our guys came to Florida to win titles, and hopefully this is the first of many.”
