In the first round of the 2000 Men's Tennis Singles Championship, TU senior Nenad Toroman fell to 24th-ranked Mark Parsons of Tennessee, 7-6, 6-2, at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia.

Toroman concludes his career as the Tulsa's all-time winningest singles player and just the third All-America tennis player in school history. He was a two-time all-WAC first team selection and was named to the all-WAC second team in 1998-99. Toroman, a four-time NCAA tournament qualifier, completes his career with an overall singles record of 100-56 (.641) and a doubles mark of 78-48.

Last year, Toroman and former Hurricane All-American Gareth Williams (1996-99) won four matches at the 1999 NCAA Tournament and finished as the national runner-up to Stanford.

As a freshman, he became the first Tulsa player in school history to compete in the modern format of the NCAA Championships. He earned Region V ITA Rookie of the Year honors in 1997 after winning a school-record 36 singles matches.
