DENVER, CO - New Mexico State junior men’s tennis player Roman Stoisavljevic has been named the WAC Men’s Tennis Player of the Week Monday, Feb. 25 as announced by the league office.
Stoisavljevic had a perfect weekend in both his singles and doubles in matches against No. 57 New Mexico and No. 41 Texas Tech, Feb. 22 and 24.
He and sophomore teammate Eduardo Salas convincingly defeated Texas Tech’s No. 2 nationally ranked doubles pair of Christian Rojmar and Bojan Szumanske, 8-2.
"Roman and Eddie's win is the best result against that level of doubles team that we’ve ever played, which is exciting," head coach Don Ball said.
In singles play, Stoisavljevic won his first match in three sets at the No. 3 position over Graeme Kassautzki of No. 57 New Mexico, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, before winning in straight sets at the No. 2 position over No. 41 Texas Tech’s Sinisa Markovic, 6-4, 6-4.
Stoisavljevic is 4-2 in singles play this spring and he and Salas have a 6-1 doubles record.
The Aggies are back in action this coming weekend as they host Sacramento State, Utah and Texas-Arlington in the final three matches of an eight-match home stand.
