texastech.com

A Texas Tech men’s tennis player attempting to make a run for the national championship came close, but met his match Friday afternoon.

Red Raider senior Gonzalo Escobar lost a three-set battle to Henrique Cunha of Duke University at the 2012 NCAA Men’s Doubles Championships at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia.

40th-ranked Escobar, an Ecuadorian native, took the first set 6-4 over No. 5-ranked Cunha, but Cunha won the second and third set to advance to the Elite Eight of the Championships.

“Gonzalo just completed the greatest tennis career in Texas Tech history,” said Texas Tech head coach Tim Siegel. “I could not be prouder of his effort today and over the last four years.”

Escobar closed his singles career with a Texas Tech record 99 career wins. He is a two-time ITA Texas Regional champion and three-time All-Big 12 honoree.
