SEO Brings Both International, Local Flavor to S. Fla

Filed under: Uncategorized — magdebar @ 6:47 pm

Tennis is a very big sport internationally and that is definitely reflected at the SEO. Media from France, Belgium, Russia, and all across South America are in the Media Center today. However, the Sony Ericsson Open also has a huge presence locally.

Players like No. 5 Andy Murray, No. 13 Stanislas Wawrinka, and No. 51 Juan Martin del Potro, all train or have trained on campus at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center–right alongside UM tennis players. For a feature story on this very topic, stay tuned. I’ll post that later in the week.

You can’t talk about players with local ties without talking about Michael Russell. Later tonight Russell will take on fellow AmericanJames Blake in the last match of the day. Russell, a Miami Hurricane, ranked No.7 in the country during his time at UM. Again, I’ll have more on this later.
