KNOXVILLE, TENN. — Members of the University of North Carolina men’s tennis team began their fall season with a productive first day at the Knoxville Showdown, hosted this weekend by the University of Tennessee.

Playing against competition on Friday from Columbia University and the University of Illinois, Carolina players won two of their three doubles matches and picked up three singles wins.

The Tar Heels played without graduate student All-America Brian Cernoch, who is spending the week as a hitting partner for Team USA at the Davis Cup this week.

In singles action, graduate transfer Ryan Seggerman, ranked No. 43, picked up a huge win over 10th-ranked Alex Kotzen of Columbia by a score of 7-6, 6-1. Meanwhile, freshman Benjamin Kittay rallied for his first collegiate singles win by defeating Ishaan Ravichander (Columbia), 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. Junior Peter Murphy also turned in a victory, downing Hugo Hashimoto of Columbia 7-6(2), 6-2.
