Binghamton men's tennis bolsters 2007-08 lineup with four recruits
Players from Germany, Sweden and Netherlands will make immediate impact

VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton University men's tennis coach Adam Cohen has significantly bolstered his program with his first recruiting class. Hitting the oversees trail hard, Cohen has landed four student-athletes, including three international talents.

Set to join the program in the fall are junior Sebastian Dietz (Leun, Germany) and freshmen Andreas Danielsson (Onsala, Sweden), Sven Vloedgraven (Lochem, Netherlands) and Evan Algier (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.).

"It was my goal to find a talented group of student-athletes that could excel both on and off the tennis court," Cohen said. "I firmly believe that this group of individuals will lay the foundation for many quality years to come for Binghamton men's tennis."

Dietz is a transfer from Justus Liebig University in Germany, and will have two years of eligibility remaining. He was a highly-ranked junior in Germany and at 18 years old, was among the country's top 200 men's players.

Danielsson was one of the top 15 juniors in Sweden as a 16-year-old. He has reached the semifinals in doubles in both the Outdoor and Indoor Swedish Championships.

Vloedgraven is among the top 100 men's players in Holland. He is ranked among that country's top 10 in his age group.

Algier rounds out the recruiting class, and has an impressive junior tennis resume. "Evan is a big kid with a monster serve and nice hands," Cohen noted.

Cohen returns three of the top four players from last year's team that won nine matches and placed third in the America East. Seniors Faisal Mohamed (Lynbrook, N.Y.) and Alex Dobrin (Flushing, N.Y.) and sophomore Moshe Levy (Ra'ananna, Israel) won a combined 56 singles matches.

Binghamton begins its fall season at the University of Virginia Invitational on September 14-16.
