Quigley to play pro match at UK Tuesday night



UK men’s tennis All-American Eric Quigley will play one of the first matches in his professional career Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. at UK’s Hilary Boone Tennis Center.

Quigley will face Italian Riccardo Ghedin in a first-round match in the Fifth Third Bank Tennis Championships.  The tournament will culminate with championship matches Sunday afternoon.

Quigley said he will be touring the nation and Canada in the coming months, hoping to land spots in higher-profile tournaments.  This may be the last chance to watch him play live until this time next year.

Tickets are $10 per night, or a full-week pass can be purchased for $50.
