Julius Tverijonas Joins No. 74 GW Men's Tennis
Freshman Brings Pro Circuit Experience to Colonials' Lineup
Jan. 17, 2014
Tverijonas comes to No. 74 GW from Siauliai, Lithuania where he graduated from Siauliai Simonas Daukantas Gymnasium in the spring of 2013. He spent the fall months competing on the professional circuit and currently owns a world ranking of No. 1,226 from the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).
“We knew Julius was a great player and he has been a solid addition to our program,” Munoz said. “He is competing with our top players for a spot in the lineup and he has all of the tools to be a No. 1 singles player.”
The rookie earned his highest ATP ranking of 1,206 in September of 2013, and as a junior player he reached his highest ranking of No. 88 in the world by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) in Feb. of 2012. He was also a two-time member of Lithuania’s Davis Cup team, a premier international event run by the ITF where the 16 best national teams compete in a knock-out format tournament.
“Julius comes to GW from the pro tour very fit and in great health and I believe he is fully prepared both mentally and physically for the spring season,” said Munoz. “He is a very serious student and athlete so I don’t think he will have any problems adjusting to the student-athlete lifestyle. We are looking forward to a successful season from him.”
Tverijonas and the 74th-ranked Colonials open the 2014 season on Monday against BYU at Navy’s Tose Family Tennis Center in Annapolis, Md. First serve is scheduled for 10:30 a.m.
