NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The LSU men’s tennis team continues its fall season September 29-October 1 at the Commodore Scramble hosted by Vanderbilt at the Currey Tennis Center.

Freshman Stewart Block, senior Gabor Csonka, junior Nikola Samardzic and sophomore Rafael Wagner are competing for the Tigers this weekend.

Block will be making his LSU debut while Csonka, Samardzic and Wagner are coming off of strong weekends at the John Breaux Cajun Classic.

The tournament includes SEC foes Alabama, Auburn and host Vanderbilt along with Furman, Lipscomb and Louisville.

“We are excited to play in another fall event and have the opportunity to continue to work on the things that we work on every day in practice,” co-head coach Chris Brandi said.

In doubles competition, which begins Friday at 9 a.m. CT, Block and Csonka will take on Vanderbilt pair George Harwell and Maxwell Freeman. Wagner and Samardzic will square off against Vanderbilt’s Adam Sraberg and Louisville’s Fredrik Moe.

Csonka and Wagner will compete against Auburn’s Edward Nguyen and Carles Sarrio, respectively, in Singles Draw A at 10 a.m. CT.
