MELBOURNE, Fla. (April 8, 2019) – Nicolo De Fraia picked up Sunshine State Conference player of the Week honors for his efforts against No. 10 West Florida this week. This is the senior's first weekly conference award of the season, and the second of his career.
De Fraia justified his ascension in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Singles Rankings with a straight set win in the first position against the Argonauts. The Cagliari, Italy native, who is ranked as the No. 20 singles player in the country, upset West Florida's top player, fifth-ranked, Serdar Bojadjiev, 6-4, 6-0.
De Fraia has yet to lose in singles play this season, while facing someof the nation's toughest competition. The senior is 16-0 overall, playing exclusively in the number one singles spot. He has defeated three nationally ranked, and six regionally ranked, opponents.
The Tars return to SSC play tomorrow, Tuesday, April 9, when they host Eckerd at the Bert Martin Tennis Complex. First serve is set for 3:00 p.m.
