Martin Falls in Second Round of NCAA Single Championship

ORLANDO, Fla. – University of Miami men’s tennis player Dan Martin’s NCAA Singles Championship bid came to an end Tuesday afternoon when he fell 5-7, 4-6 to No. 61 Micah Braswell in the round of the 32.

Martin, the 30th-ranked collegiate men’s tennis player, finishes his six-year collegiate career with a 94-49 overall singles record and a 78-37 mark in doubles play.

He totaled 20 wins over ranked opponents in his career, including a defeat of the then-No. 1 player in the country, Ethan Quinn, earlier this season.

Martin and Braswell traded points to start the match, with Martin holding a narrow 5-4 lead 45 minutes into play. However, Braswell won the final three games of the set to take a 7-5 lead.

Martin jumped out to an early 3-2 lead in set two, but could not contain the dominance of Braswell, who came roaring back to tie the set at four-all. It was all Braswell from there on out as he won nine of the next 10 points to clinch the match, 7-5, 6-4.

A native of Laval, Quebec, Canada, Martin concludes his collegiate career as a four-time all-conference selection, highlighted by two All-ACC First Team nods in 2022 and 2023.
