Decamps Earns 5th AAC Player of the Week Nod

ORLANDO, Fla. – For the fifth time this season, Gabriel Decamps has been tabbed as the American Athletic Conference's Player of the Week. He earned a pair of wins over ranked opponents in singles as well as going 3-0 in doubles with Juan Pablo Grassi Mazzuchi.

The week started off with a bang for the UCF men's tennis team as they triumphed over No. 14 Wake Forest by a count of 4-3. The team followed up that performance with a road victory over No. 37 South Florida and a home win on Easter Sunday over No. 25 Tulane. Decamps had a big role in all three wins, including clinching the doubles point in each match.

The nation's No. 4 singles player continued to stay hot, winning his 13th straight match on Wednesday against No. 14 Wake Forest. It was a back-and-forth matchup throughout at the No. 1 singles position that saw Decamps have to fight through a second set tiebreaker to keep the match alive. He was the last court in action and prevailed over No. 13 Henri Squire 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-2, helping the Knights walk-off on the Demon Deacons.

Decamps' lone downside of the week was that he was forced to retire against No. 37 South Florida on Saturday in singles, snapping his winning streak.

Despite Saturday's setback, Decamps bounced right back the next day and won a thrilling three-set battle against No. 29 Hamish Stewart of No. 25 Tulane. After going down 5-2 in the final frame, Decamps rallied to win 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7-0). He moves to 16-2 in singles this season and 8-2 against ranked opponents.

Decamps and Grassi Mazzuchi were a perfect 3-0 in doubles, clinching the first point of the match each time this week. They won each match by a count of 6-3.

The Knights will have the week off from match action and return to the courts on Sunday as they host North Florida. This will be the second time this season that the two sides meet; UCF got the best of the Ospreys in their last meeting, sweeping them 7-0 in Jacksonville on Feb. 20.
