ITA All-American Run Ends for TCU's Sestini


Oct. 7, 2004

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.

TCU's Fabrizio Sestini won his first match then faltered in the next to end his run in the Icy Hot/ITA All-American Championships Thursday at the Champions Club in Chattanooga, Tenn. Sestini, ranked No. 73 in the nation, upset 41st-ranked Jamil Al-Agba from Southern California in the first round, 3-6, 6-2, 7-5. California's No. 17-rated Conor Niland defeated Sestini later in the day in straight sets, 6-0, 7-6(4). Sestini's fall singles record stands at 8-2, including a 3-1 mark against ranked opponents.

Sestini and Rafael Abreu were stunned in their first-round match in doubles by Shannon Buck and Tyler McClung from Air Force, 8-5. The loss was the first of the fall for the nation's No. 8-ranked duo. Sestini and Abreu will now attempt to make a push in the consolation portion of the doubles starting Friday, Oct. 8, against LSU's Mark Growcott and Jason Hazley at 12:30 p.m. CDT. Growcott and Hazley are ranked 28th in the country.
