ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- For the second week in a row, former University of Michigan men's tennis standout Evan King (2009-2012) claimed an ITF Pro Circuit doubles championship, teaming up with Sekou Bangoura to win the Markham Futures Tournament on Friday (Sept. 20). King and Bangoura won three straight matches on their way to the title, defeating the tandem of Hans Hatch and Andrew Ochotta, 6-3, 6-2, in the championship match.
King, a three-time ITA All-American, ended his illustrious Michigan career with a 116-34 singles record and is U-M's all-time leader in combined singles and doubles wins with 195. The 2013 Big Ten Athlete of the Year award recipient, King finished his senior campaign with a 32-5 singles record, including a 23-1 mark in dual matches and a perfect 10-0 record in Big Ten play.
Former U-M All-Big Ten honoree Jason Jung (2008-2011), who teamed up with King last weekend to win the ITF Pro Circuit Tevlin Futures Tournament, has cracked the top 400 of the ATP world rankings. Jung, who comes in at No. 393 in the latest ATP rankings, 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.
