Former UM Tennis Player Shines in Delray Beach Tournament

Former University of Miami tennis star Eric Hechtman won the Delray Beach ITC “Survivor Series I” pre-qualifying tournament this past weekend. The draw included 124 other players. Hechtman scored a three-set win over FAU junior Marc Abdelnour (2-6, 6-4, 6-2) on Tuesday in Delray. Eric reached the finals the past two years-the third time was the charm!

Hechtman is one step from playing in the ITC by earning a wild card into the ATP World Tour event’s qualifying tournament to be played in Febuary. The top 4 players in the 32-player draw advance into the ATP main event.
