Student Assistant Coach


TCU men's tennis head coach Dave Borelli has announced the addition of former TCU standout Radu Barbu as student assistant coach. Barbu starred for the Horned Frogs from 2005-07.

"I'm really excited to have Radu as part of our team," said Borelli. "Radu was such an important part of our team chemistry last season, as we were 1-7 without him in the lineup and 9-5 when he returned to our lineup. Not only was his play a factor in our success, but also his presence. He'll be a big help for our team this season."

As a member of the men's tennis team, Barbu went 35-27 overall in singles play in three seasons and 31-20 in dual matches, including a 10-3 mark last season. As a senior, Barbu recorded an undefeated 6-0 mark in regular season Mountain West Conference play and earned MWC Player of the Week honors.

Barbu also excelled in doubles play with TCU, notching an overall record of 36-21 and a dual mark of 28-18. In 2006, Barbu went 16-3 overall in doubles, including an 11-1 dual mark when playing with Cosmin Cotet. In total, Barbu earned 67 singles and doubles victories as a Horned Frog.

Barbu is a native of Pitesti, Romania, and plans to earn his undergraduate degree from TCU in December of 2007.
