FORT WORTH, Texas
TCU sophomore Rafael Abreu and junior Fabrizio Sestini of the Horned Frog men's tennis squad will travel west on I-20 to Midland, Texas, for the Midland Racquet Club Invitational over Oct. 17-19. It marks the third tournament for both Frogs this fall. The duo kicked off the season in Peachtree City, Ga., at the adidas Invitational in September and then competed in the Icy Hot/ITA All-American Championships in Chattanooga, Tenn., two weeks ago.
The Midland Invitational consists of a 32-player singles field and a 16-team doubles draw. Consolation matches will be played in addition to the main draw. Other schools sending student-athletes to compete in Midland include Arizona, Baylor, Boise State, Duke, Oklahoma, Pepperdine, SMU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa and UCLA.
Abreu is off to a 3-2 start this season. He posted three consecutive wins at the adidas Invitational before falling in the semifinals. Sestini, who stands at 63rd in the preseason ITA Collegiate Rankings, holds a 1-2 singles slate this fall. The tandem is 2-2 in doubles.
