Former Ram, Moser, reaches second round of French Open

PARIS, France – It's been nearly 15 years since Frank Moser played at VCU's Thalhimer Tennis Center, but the former Ram has continued to shine at the highest level.

This week, Moser reached the second round of the French Open doubles championship. The appearance marked the 10th time Moser has played in a Grand Slam in the past five years. He has reached the second round in five of those 10 appearances. 

Moser and fellow German Florian Mayer defeated the team of Gilles Muller and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi in the first round, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-1) to advance to the second round.

The former Ram is currently ranked among the top-100 doubles players in the world. His highest ATP ranking came in 2012, when he reached #47.

He has 55 victories to his name and his career earnings will reach over $500,00 this season.

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.
