WIMBLEDON, ENGLAND – In sports, most careers are on the downward slide by the age of 35. Don't tell former VCU tennis star Frank Moser that.
Moser will be competing in his fifth straight Grand Slam event when he takes the grass courts at Wimbledon this week to play in the Gentlemen's Doubles action.
The 126th Wimbledon Championships get underway today with Moser slated to team up with Croatia's Ivo Karlovic. The duo will face off against Matthew Ebden (Australia) and Ryan Harrison (USA) in the first round.
This will be Moser's third appearance at Wimbledon with his highlight coming last year when he helped take down former Wimbledon Singles Champion Lleyton Hewitt in the first round of the doubles tournament.
In the past two seasons, Moser has been a part of 23 doubles victories, which is nearly 70 percent of his career victories. He enters this week ranked 58th by the ATP in doubles and reached a career-high 47th in the world last month.
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.
