ROUEN, France --- University of Georgia senior men’s tennis player Wil Spencer went a perfect 3-0 in helping the United States win three matches to claim the 2011 Master’U BNP Paribas championship in Rouen, France.

Spencer was one of six American college players – three men, three women – representing their country and joining seven other teams of collegians from around the world at the sixth annual event this week. The United States ultimately claimed the championship with wins over Germany (6-1), Belgium (7-0), and France (4-3) in the best-of-seven format consisting of two men’s and two women’s singles, one men’s and one women’s doubles, and one mixed doubles match each day.

Spencer won all three of his singles matches, including the defining match of the tournament as he rallied from down 4-1 in the third vs. his French counterpart Sebastien Rocher Sunday with the U.S. already trailing 3-0 and facing the loss. Spencer’s tiebreak victory gave the United States its first point, which would spark the team to three straight doubles wins to pull it out, 4-3.

On Saturday in the semifinals vs. Belgium Spencer defeated Dimi Jottier 3-6, 7-6, 6-2, and on Friday in the quarterfinals he bested Germany’s Nico Schinke, 6-1, 6-2.

The United States also won the Master’U title in 2009 with a win over France.

Spencer went 17-2 this fall season for the Bulldogs, winning the Southern Intercollegiates as well as the consolation draw of the National Indoor Championships. He is a returning All-America from last season’s NCAA semifinalist team.
