SPOILER ALERT: Australian Open results below!


I owe a huge apology to College Tennis! I have left former LSU All-American Michael Venus off my updates so far, and he is making a great showing in the Mixed Doubles at this year’s Australian Open after losing in the opening round of the Men’s Doubles to American Scott Lipsky and partner David Marrero. I have gone back and edited my previous update articles to include Michael. If there are any other college players I have left out, please let me know!
