Louris Pourroy has had an influence on the Noles this season

The Florida State men’s tennis team kicks off this exciting 2023 season on an impressive winning streak. The Seminoles demonstrated their skill and confidence in their season opener on Jan. 6 in Honolulu, Hawaii, as Florida State beat Hawaii 7-0 on Friday and defeated California 5-2 on Sunday.

With an intense season opening weekend, it can be difficult to play back-to-back games. “We’ve been working on our strength and conditioning to be ready,” senior Louris Pourroy said. “Most of the guys played a tournament at home to prepare for the season.”

The two wins proved to be a massive change of momentum as Garnet and Gold continued to dominate their two subsequent matchups, defeating No. 7 Georgia 5-2 and Florida Atlantic 6-1. Victory in Georgia was exhilarating as the ‘Noles defeated this talented team last season and advanced to Round 16 of the NCAA tournament (the first time since 2009).
