Rosenfeld and Subramanian fall at Seminole Invitational
The University of Miami men’s tennis doubles duo of junior David Rosenfeld and senior Vivek Subramanian put together a strong run at the Seminole Invitational, as they advanced to the doubles final.
Unfortunately, they were unable to take the final step and push through, as they were downed, 9-7, by Florida State’s duo of Clint Bowles and Jean-Yves Aubone.
Despite the loss, the run to the finals for Rosenfeld and Subramanian was quite impressive as they defeated three straight opponents after a first round bye, including FSU’s tandem and the No. 26-ranked doubles team of Sam Chang and Maciek Sykut, 8-6.
