At Rochester, Tennis Gets Controversial

+ More

The University of Rochester's tennis team is at the center of a controversy that has led nine of 11 men's varsity players to quit and two coaches to file reports to campus security. The resignations were a protest against one of their coaches, whom they said they had been complaining about for two years, the Campus Times reported earlier this month. Now, two tennis coaches have filed security reports with the university after receiving anonymous phone calls, the paper reports. The former players deny involvement and instead bemoan the fact that their spots on the squad already have been filled. "I'm extremely disappointed," one player says. "I feel like my tennis career is getting cut short by this and I am afraid that tennis players will be left behind."
