The paring of redshirt senior Julia Courter and senior Paula Rincon-Otero finished 0-2 in doubles, while sophomore Caroline Ryba went 1-1 in singles for the Gophers at the All-American Championships that concluded on Oct.
In total, Minnesota had five players in two tournaments over the weekend.
Mathieu Froment and Jack Hamburg were randomly paired together for doubles during their sophomore year.
“We won both matches, and we’ve been playing [together] ever since,” Hamburg said.
And it’s worked out for the Gophers, as the two seniors have honed their game and built chemistry together.
Winning the doubles point gives a team the advantage heading into the singles competition, and the duo has helped the Gophers do that for the past three seasons.
Out of 21 meets this season, Minnesota has won the doubles point 17 times. And of those 17 times, they’ve won a total of 15 meets.
