2012-13 All-West Coast Conference Men’s Tennis Teams 

SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The University of San Diego men’s tennis team’s Thibaut Visy, Clarke Spinosa, Uros Petronijevic, and Romain Kalaydjian were honored by the WCC with postseason awards on Wednesday.

Junior Clarke Spinosa was named to the All-WCC Singles First Team, senior Thibaut Visy was named to the Singles Second Team, and together Spinosa and Visy were selected to the Doubles Second Team. Additionally Uros Petronijevic was named WCC Freshman of the Year and freshman Romain Kalaydjian was an Honorable Mention selection for singles.

Spinosa, one of the team’s co-captains, went 9-1 in singles against WCC competition, winning his last nine matches in a row. Spinosa finished with a 19-6 overall dual match record and has been in the ITA’s rankings since February 12. Spinosa was named to the All-WCC Singles Second Team in each of his first two years, but this is the first time he has been selected to the first team. Spinosa has already been one of the most consistent performers in USD’s history and will have a chance next year to become the school’s all-time leader in both singles and doubles career victories.

Visy, the team’s lone senior and one of the co-captains, also has his name sprinkled throughout the Torero record books. Visy has been named an Honorable Mention selection in singles in each of the past three seasons, but this year he was named to the Second Team after going 13-10 playing primarily at the No. 1 spot in the Toreros lineup.



Spinosa and Visy made the Doubles Second Team in 2011, but played with different partners last year and Visy was selected to the Doubles First Team with Nikola Bubnic. Visy and Spinosa posted a13-5 dual match record this season at the No. 1 spot for the Toreros, and went 5-3 against WCC competition. The duo won a total of 19 doubles matches this season, which is the fourth most for a tandem in a season in school history. Additionally, Visy and Spinosa have racked up 36 career doubles wins together, good for second most all-time.

Petronijevic became the second Torero in the past three years to take home Freshman of the Year Honors; Spinosa won it in 2011. Petronijevic, like Spinosa, posted a 9-1 record against the WCC and won his last nine matches. With an overall dual match record of 18-6, Petronijevic was one of three Toreros who won at least 75 percent of their dual singles matches (Spinosa and Victor Pugliese are the others), and he is currently riding an eight match win streak.

Kalaydjian finished with an 11-13 dual singles record while playing at the top three spots in the Toreros singles lineup. Kalaydjian had the most success at the No. 2 spot where he went 8-2. Kalaydjian began the 2013 season ranked at No. 62 by the ITA and re-entered the rankings at No. 110 on April 9 after winning three matches in a row

The Toreros, who finished third in the WCC, were selected to the NCAA Tournament as at-large bid. They will face Alabama (14-13) on May 10 at 11:00 a.m. at USC’s Marks Tennis Stadium. If the Toreros win they will face the winner of USC and Sacramento State on May 11 at 3:00 p.m.
