Five fall tournaments, eight home matches, and contests against USC, Stanford, Florida State and Texas, highlight the Georgia men’s tennis team’s 2022-23 schedule, it was announced Monday.
The Bulldogs begin the season with the 55th Southern Intercollegiate Championships, which take place Sept. 16-18 at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. The annual tradition has been held in Athens each year since 1968 and is one of the greatest and longest running fall tournaments in college tennis history.
Following the SICs, Georgia will compete in four additional fall events, concluding with the ITA Fall Nationals and Georgia Tech Invitational in November.
Georgia will begin 2023 at the Miami Invitational from Jan. 6-8, before road trips to Florida State and Texas. The Bulldogs host LSU, Miami and Louisville for the ITA Kick-Off Weekend on Jan. 29-30.
Then, three of the winningest programs in tennis history will square off in Lake Nona, Fla., as Georgia, Stanford and USC compete in a three-team event on Feb. 4-5.
The indoor portion of the schedule wraps up with trips to Georgia Tech (Feb. 12), Illinois (in Chicago on Feb. 15) and the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in Chicago on Feb. 17-20.
Georgia’s 12-match Southeastern Conference slate features home contests against Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Ole Miss as well as road matchups at Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Arkansas, South Carolina and Florida.
This year’s SEC Tournament will take place April 20-23 in Auburn, Ala., followed by the NCAA first and second rounds, super regionals and finals in May.
The Bulldogs return four seniors in Trent Bryde, Philip Henning, Blake Croyder and Britton Johnston and will have a bevy of newcomers. Redshirt freshman Ethan Quinn, now ranked No. 509 on the ATP World Tour, had an impressive summer that saw him knock off four players ranked in the top-10 of last season’s final ITA rankings. Joining Quinn will be Arizona State transfer Filipe Costa and Clemson graduate transfer Teodor Giusca.
Georgia’s full schedule is attached.
