Baylor’s Bendeck Finishes 6-1 At ITA All-American Championships

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor men’s tennis sophomore Jimmy Bendeck concluded his run in the 2016 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men’s All-American Championships at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center Tuesday.

Bendeck went 1-1 on his final day of competition, opening with an upset of 89th-ranked Tim Strodder of Tennessee, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the third round of qualifying singles action. The Hollywood, Fla., product then needed one more win to reach the singles main draw, but came up short to Oregon’s Thomas Laurent, ranked No. 105, 7-6, 6-4.

Over four days of competition, the sophomore Bear went 6-1 in Tulsa. He produced a 4-0 record in pre-qualifying singles action and then a 2-1 mark in qualifying play.

Bendeck is now 8-1-0 on the year and 1-1 against ranked foes.

In singles qualifying draw consolation play, Constantin Frantzen was beaten by Florida’s 76th-ranked Chase Perez-Blanco, 6-3, 6-1 to wrap up his play at the event. The freshman Bear is now 2-2 on the season.

WHAT'S NEXT
On Thursday, Max Tchoutakian will take part in the singles main draw at the ITA All-American Championships. Times and opponents for that day of competition are still to be determined.
