Jack WhiteOctober 14, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintJunior Jeremy Lynn started the 2015 season going 2-0 in doubles with senior Ruben Weber and 0-2 in singles at the Arizona Wildcat Invitational over two weeks ago.   Now approaching his second tournament of the year — the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regionals — Lynn will look to get his first singles victory. Lynn said he’s made a short video for one of his film classes and is looking forward to making a 10-minute spot by the end of the semester. “[In high school] I thought he had a really good forehand with a really good serve,” Young said. Lynn went 2-3 in doubles as a freshman but only competed in one doubles match last year, which he lost. “He’s working on some new things in his game,” head coach Geoff Young said. “I don’t think he played his best tennis in [the Wildcat Invitational], but I think that ever since then, he’s been playing better.” Off the court, Lynn originally thought he would be a business major, but he is currently studying film and media.center_img To start his junior season, Lynn was defeated 6-2, 6-1 by Jason Jaruvang of Arizona at the Wildcat Invitational. In the consolation round, he was defeated 6-4, 6-2 by Felix Schumann of Northern Arizona University. Lynn joined the Gophers from Joplin, Mo., where he won the state championship in high school in 2013. Young said he is optimistic Lynn will bounce back at the next tournament. “I’m looking to become a more well-rounded player and be able to get into the net a little more, be more aggressive,” Lynn said. “So I’ve been working on my sway on my backhand. I think it can be an effective shot and throw people off.” Lynn has seen playing time in all three of his collegiate seasons, finishing 3-11 in singles as a freshman but improving to 7-7 as a sophomore. “I love to watch movies and [want to] eventually start making movies,” Lynn said. “He’s been working on his slice backhand and coming to the net more,” Young said. “I’m really excited the rest of the fall, watching him play.”last_img read more
