Junior Anthony Rossi is this weeks SEC Player of the Week in men’s tennis. Rossi is coming off an impressive 3-0 week in singles last week against some of the nation’s toughest competition. Most notably, Rossi defeated Stanford’s Bradley Klahn who is a two-time singles All-American and won the NCAA singles championship in 2010.
Anthony Rossi has now moved up to a career high 13th in the nation in singles. He is currently riding a 16-match win streak dating back to his championship title at the SEC Coaches’ Indoor Championships this past fall.
His first two seasons, Rossi was a solid contributor, but never a stand-out player against the giants of Quigley and Musialek. Now, it seems like Rossi has hit another gear of play, and will be a vital factor in the level of success the Wildcats have this year on the court. UK men’s tennis has the French pipeline on tap, as Rossi is one of three Frenchmen on the team, all ranked in the top 80 in the country.
This is UK’s second SEC Player of the Year award so far in men’s tennis, as Eric Quigley was given the award just a couple of weeks ago.
