GAINESVILLE, Florida – No.35 Florida State edged No. 44 UNCW for the doubles point and then tacked on three singles victories to shut out  the Seahawks, 4-0, in the consolation match of the ITA Kick-Off Gainesville Regional Sunday at Florida’s Ring Tennis Complex.

The Seminoles pushed their record to 8-1 on the season and rebounded from a 4-3 upset to TCU on Saturday. The Seahawks stand 1-2 following their second straight loss after a season-opening win over Appalachian State.

In Sunday’s match, UNCW jumped out quickly with a win at No. 2 doubles behind Pedro Mol and Kaue Pereira, who knocked off FSU’s Grayson Goldin and Marco Nunez, 6-3. But FSU stormed back with a win at No. 3 doubles and nabbed the key point when Dominic Controne and Blake Davis trimmed Santtu Leskinen and Sam Williams, 6-4, at the top of the lineup.

The Seminoles of the ACC posted three quick singles victories to nail down the match, with wins at the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 6 positions.

Controne increased the score to 2-0 by downing Williams, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 1 singles in a match that lasted one hour. Goldin then topped UNCW freshman Karan Salwan, 6-3, 6-4, at No. 6 singles to hike the lead to 3-0.

Davis clinched the match at No. 2 singles when he stopped Mol by identical 6-3 set scores.

The Seahawks played their second straight match without star player Rafael Aita, who is competing on Peru’s team in the Davis Cup.

UNCW competes again on Saturday, Feb. 1, when the Seahawks travel to Coastal Carolina for a 1 p.m. match in Conway, S.C.
