Lock returns for FSU

HARARE - Zimbabwe tennis player Benjamin Lock is set to return to action for United States-based Florida State University (FSU) after recovering from an injury that sidelined him in 2014.

According to FSU website before he was injured, however, he paired with Marco Nunez to rise as high as number in the country in doubles.

“Lock will use his experiences playing with the Zimbabwe Davis Cup team to improve for the Seminoles this year,” FSU website said.

Lock was a member of the Zimbabwe Davis Cup team that advanced to the Africa/Europe Zone Group II stage for the first time since 2006.

During the Group III matches, held in Cairo, Egypt, Lock went 4-1 combined in singles and doubles as the Zimbabwe team went undefeated to advance.

FSU head coach Dwayne Hultquist showered praise on Lock and Nunez.

“Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez, winning the Disney doubles tournament in the fall, winning regionals and reaching the semifinals of National Indoors in 2013, they are clearly an outstanding doubles team and both of them will bring some good experience to us on the singles side,” Hultquist told FUS website

“Ben has done a great job over the summer of picking up some ATP points, and Marco had some good ranked wins this fall. We’ll see both of those guys in the top four of our lineup.”
