On His Game

Tennis standout Doug Matthews has taken his tennis skills from the courts to the coaches’ corner, being hired as an assistant coach this year after graduating in 2009 with back-to-back honors as the Atlantic 10 Conference Player of the Year. But he’s also proving that he hasn’t lost his game. In July, Matthews won the men’s singles title at the Cincinnati Met, the city’s highly competitive, highly prestigious public tennis tournament. He was also part of the teams that won the men’s doubles and mixed doubles titles, making him only the second person in the tournament’s history to win three titles in the same year. The titles give Matthews a total of eight Met championships of the 14 in which he’s played.
