ace summer honors
Michigan's Eric Friedler made it close but lost out to
Gonzalo Nunez of Texas last Sunday in the National Amateur
Men's Grass Court tennis championships held at Newport,
The Wolverine net ace, who reached the doubles semi-
finals of the NCAA tournament this past June, was turned
back by Nunez, 6-3, 3-6, 6-5.
Friedler had beaten Nunez in singles earlier this year,
while the combination of Nunez and Steward Keller knocked
No. 1 doubles seeds Vic Amaya and Fred DeJeusus out of
Three Wolverine netters received major recognition

commented Michigan tennis coach Brian Eisner. Earlier in
the week Victor Amaya competed in the Chicago Inter-
national Tennis chakpionships and advanced past the sec-
ond round before losing to professional Dick Stockton 7-6,
6-3 in a battle for a quarter-final berth.
By being named to the Davis squad, opportunities like
the upcoming Western Championships at Indianapolis and
the U.S. Clay Court Championship at Louisville, of which
Amaya is defending champion, will open to the Michigan
How they do in their summer tournaments will deter-
mine whether they will play in the prestigous U.S Ope
at Forest Hills. .
For Eric Friedler, making the finals at the Amateur
Grass Court championships may not be enough to get him
directly into Forest Hills. "That's an amateur tournament
and he was beating other amateurs," reminded Eisner.
