EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. -- Former University of Michigan men's tennis standout Jason Jung (2008-11) captured his second professional tennis title on Sunday (Aug. 11), winning the singles championship at the USTA Pro Circuit Futures Tournament hosted by the EGHM Foundation. Jung defeated Dimitar Kutrovsky, 6-2, 7-6 (5), in the final.
Jung, a two-time All-Big Ten honoree, compiled an 83-64 singles record during his four-year tenure in Ann Arbor. He was a unanimous first team All-Big Ten selection as a senior, closing out the singles portion of his collegiate career with a 25-12 record, marking his best statistical year at Michigan. Jung earned his first professional singles title last July, winning the USTA Pro Circuit Futures Tournament in Godfrey, Ill.
