Goffi Announces Fall 2022 Schedule
Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina men’s tennis head coach Josh Goffi announced his team’s Fall 2022 schedule on Wednesday.
“The majority of our guys went out and played pro matches this summer so we’re looking to build off that momentum going into the fall,” said Goffi. “We’re hoping to get in a great tournament run at Vanderbilt and all the way through Fall Nationals. We’re also going to allow some of our guys who picked up ATP points this summer to go out and play Futures events to maximize those points and look to earn some more.”
The Gamecocks will spend the fall semester on the road, beginning at the Vandy Fall Invite in Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 23-25. Selected members of the team will then head to Tulsa, Okla., for the ITA All-American Championships Oct. 1-9. Pre-qualifying for the event will begin with a singles draw of 256 on Oct. 1-2. Qualifying for singles and doubles will take place on Oct. 3-4 with the main draw following from Oct. 5-9.
The next round of competition will take place closer to home at the ITA Carolina Regionals in Durham, N.C., Oct. 21-25.
The fall season will conclude with three concurrent events; the Alabama Fall Invite, Georgia Tech Invite, and ITA Fall Nationals. The squad will split with those qualified heading to San Diego, Calif. for the ITA Fall Nationals. The remaining members will attend the events at Alabama and Georgia Tech to conclude the fall slate.
The men’s tennis squad will also have opportunities to compete in ITF Futures events throughout the fall. Currently scheduled are the M15 in McAllen, Texas, Oct. 10-16, and the M15 in Norman, Okla., Oct. 24-30.
The Gamecocks finished last season ranked No. 10 in the nation, the program’s best final ranking since coming in at No. 5 at the end of the 1988-89 campaign. South Carolina advanced to the NCAA Championships Round of 16 for the second consecutive year and ended the season with a record of 23-7 (.767).
