Northern Illinois junior Mikhail Titov was selected as the MAC’s Men’s Tennis Player of the Week, the league announced Thursday.
It is the first such honor of his career and the second for NIU this season: Axel Lagerlof earned the recognition Feb. 22.
Titov finished the weekend 3-1 for Huskies, earning two wins in singles and another in doubles. He highlighted his weekend with a win at No. 5 singles against Wisconsin’s Quinton Vega, 6-2, 7-5. Titov aided in NIU’s clean sweep of Southern Illinois, defeating Rafael Cuadrillero, 6-4, 6-1.
The native of Russia is 4-3 in singles for the Huskies this spring and 4-6 in doubles play.
Northern Illinois will return to action Friday afternoon for a match against Brown, starting at 4 p.m. at Boylan Tennis Center in Rockford.
