Emory Trio Earns UAA Men's Tennis Honor

Emory Trio Earns UAA Men's Tennis Honor

For the second time this fall, three members of the Emory men's tennis program have been selected as the University Athletic Association's Players of the Week.  The trio were recognized by the conference office following their efforts at the ITA Oracle Cup, Oct. 13-16, in Surprise, Arizona.

Senior Aman Manji (Sammamish, WA) was one of the honorees after capturing the D-III singles crown, while the tandem of junior David Omsky (Aventura, FL) and sophomore Jonathan Jemison (Marietta, GA) were tabbed following their championship run in doubles.

Manji became just the second different Eagle in program history to win the D-III Singles crown in that portion of the event, registering wins over three foes.  The No. 4-seeded Manji opened with a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 decision over Arthur Fagundes of UT-Tyler in the quarterfinals before coming away with a 6-2, 6-4, semifinal triumph against Michael Rozenvasser of Carnegie Mellon.  In the championship battle, Manji claimed a 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, outcome over Lubomir Cuba of Middlebury.

Omksy and Jemison joined Michael and Chris Goodwin (2008) as the only Emory doubles team to win the D-III Championship.  Omsky and Jemsion registered a victory over the RPI tandem of Zack Ebenfield and Sebastian Castillo-Sanchez in the quarterfinals before posting a 7-3, 6-1 triumph over Glenn Hull and Nikolai Parodi of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, 7-6, 6-1 in the semifinals.  In the title clash, Omsky and Jemison came away with a 6-2, 7-5 win over UT-Tyler's Matt Tyer and Wilson Lambeth.
