Singh quits UGA tennis team as Bulldogs prep for NCAAs

Georgia senior KU Singh has notified men’s tennis coach Manuel Diaz that he has decided to leave the team effective immediately, according to a university release.

Singh’s decision comes just three days before the second-ranked and third-seeded Bulldogs are set to begin NCAA championships play in Athens, with first- and second-round matches scheduled for Friday and Saturday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.

Singh was ranked No. 4 in the nation in singles prior to his departure, with an overall record of 17-9.

“This is a very close group and today they’re closer than ever,” Diaz said in a release. “Our program will continue to stress teamwork, togetherness, and playing with our hearts for each other, as it always has. We are united and are moving forward in a positive manner.”
