Hume Drops Opening Match at All-American Tournament

TULSA, Okla. - The Boise State men's tennis team opened up its week at the D'Novo All-American Tournament in Tulsa, Okla. on Monday (Oct. 4), as junior Damian Hume dropped his opening round match in the qualifying tournament to fall from singles competition.

The All-American tournament, which features the top collegiate tennis players in the country, kicked-off on Saturday (Oct. 2) with a pre-qualifying tournament. Hume received an automatic bid into the 128-player qualifying tournament, where he was competing for an at-large berth into the main draw of singles competition.

Hume's run at the main draw would end quickly, however, as he opened his week against No. 46 nationally ranked Alex Clayton of Stanford. Clayton, who was the No. 1 overall seed in the qualifying tournament, took down Hume in straight sets, 6-3, 6-1.

Hume will look to rebound as he now teams up with James Meredith to compete in qualifying doubles on Tuesday (Oct. 5) looking for a spot in the doubles main draw. Hume and Meredith will begin doubles play against Filip Milijevic and Matej Zlatkovic of Illinois State.

Following the completion of qualifying action, Meredith will represent the Broncos in the main draw of singles competition starting on Thursday. Visit www.itatennis.com for updates and live scoring throughout the week.
