FORMER RAM, FRANK MOSER, SET TO PLAY IN WIMBLEDON DOUBLES DRAW

WILMBLEDON, England – A historic event is happening this week in England, and we're not talking about another Royal Wedding.

The 125th Wimbledon Championships will get underway on Monday and a former VCU standout will be in the heart of the action.

For the second time in his career, former Ram Frank Moser will hit the infamous grass courts in the doubles competiton.

Moser will partner with fellow German Matthias Bachinger in a tough draw against Australia's Lleyton Hewitt and Peter Luczak. That's the same Hewitt who won the 2002 Wimbledon Singles Championship.

For Moser, it will be his fourth appearance at a Grand Slam Event, competing in the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2009.

He has been active in Europe in many doubles competitions since then.

A two-time All-American during his time at VCU, Moser helped the Rams earn a spot in the only National Championship Appearance in school history when the Black & Gold battled perennial power Stanford in the 2000 NCAA National Championship.

During his senior year in 2001, Moser teamed with Florian Marquardt to make a run into the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship.

Time and date for Moser's first round match will be released sometime in the coming days.
