AUM athlete named SSAC men's tennis player of the week

Auburn University at Montgomery sophomore Loic Didavi has been named the Southern States Athletic Conference's Men's Tennis Player of the Week, the league announced on Tuesday.

Didavi joins fellow sophomore teammate Bruno Savi as members of the team to earn the weekly honor. Savi was won the award on March 21 and March 28. AUM has now garnered the honor three of the four weeks this season.

The Cotonou, Benin, native, earned the award after capturing a pair of straight-set singles victories and two doubles wins last week. On the week, the No. 3 Senators finished the week 2-0, extending their win streak to four matches and nine of their last 10.

In AUM's first match of the week, Didavi defeated Emory's Nicholas Szczurek, 6-2, 6-3, at the No. 4 singles position, while picking up an 8-6 doubles victory with freshman teammate Zinelabidine Jouini. Emory entered the match ranked second in the NCAA Division III poll.

Didavi concluded the week with a 6-0, 6-0, victory over Zach Smith of No. 23 Lee University at the No. 3 position. He and Jouini also captured a doubles win, 8-5.

On the season, Didavi sports a 15-4 singles record, playing primarily at the No. 3 and No. 4 positions. He also holds a team-best 18-4 record in doubles matches.

Didavi and the Senators will conclude their regular season on Saturday, April 23, when they travel to Rome, Ga., to take on conference foe Shorter at 1 p.m.
