ORLANDO, Fla. – Just a couple of weeks after the ETSU men’s tennis team fell in the first round of the NCAA tournament, redshirt-freshman Dimitri Badra saw his year come to a close in the opening round of the individual tournament Sunday afternoon at the USTA National Campus in Orlando, Fla.
The Venezuela native squared off against second-seeded Daniel Rodrigues of South Carolina. The Gamecock won in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4. The loss gives the reigning SoCon Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year a 14-6 mark on the season. This was Badra’s first time in the individual tournament.
