Jan Zielinksi and Robert Loeb entered the NCAA doubles tournament as the No. 1 overall seed. And so far they’ve taken care of business.
Zielinski and Loeb advanced to the finals after beating the TCU pairing of Terry Lopez and Reese Stalder 6-3, 7-6(4).

With the win, Zielinski and Loeb will now face the Oklahoma pairing of Andrew Harris and Spencer Papa. The Oklahoma duo beat the No. 4 ranked pairing of Skander Mansouri Christian Seraphim of Wake Forest in the semifinals and beat the No. 2 pairing of UCLA’s Martin Redlicki and Evan Zhu in the quarterfinals.
The NCAA Tennis championship are being held in Athens this year but it will be the last time for at least the next five years. It would be a great send off for Zielinski and Loeb to win a championship at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex for the home crowd. The men’s tennis team ended up losing in the semifinals to North Carolina, 4-3. Virginia ended up taking home the team title.
Zielinski and Loeb’s final match of the season will begin at 1 p.m. ET on Monday.
