McPherson College men’s tennis coach Justin Stuckey announced two signings today.

Leandro Nix and Robert Burrows will be joining a Bulldog men’s team that qualified for the NAIA National Tournament this past season. Nix comes from Brazil and Burrows from England.

"Leandro has a lot of upside as he has a lot of different ways he can play tennis, which is nice to see," Stuckey said in a press release. "He has the weapons to play aggressive tennis and also has the weapons to play long tennis points. This will help him a lot since we have so many different types of college tennis players. We are very excited about having Leandro be a part of the tennis program for the next four years.”

Burrows has much experience and will add to the Bulldogs’ depth.

“Robert is a very talented, hard-working tennis player and I feel he has his best tennis ahead of him," Stuckey said. "He is very focused on doing well in the classroom and on the tennis court. Robert is very athletic and quick around the court and it was very apparent while recruiting him that he works hard for every point. Robert is really going to help our men's program and I am really looking forward to working with him over the next four years."
