Former three-time Texas A&M men’s tennis All-American Conor Pollock (pronounced PAUL-luck) and his partner Cory Parr won the doubles title at the Linda Bogdan Memorial Futures Tournament held over the Fourth of July weekend at the Tennis Club of Rochester in Rochester, N.Y.
Pollock, a native of San Antonio, who starred for the Aggies from 2006-09, and Parr were the No. 2 seeds in the 16-team doubles main draw and are currently ranked No. 797 in the world. The duo defeated fourth-seeded Chase Buchanan and Bryan Koniecko, who both played for 2009 NCAA runner-up Ohio State, 6-3, 6-4, in the finals.
It marked Pollock’s third doubles title on the pro circuit this year next to career tour wins with partner Ashwin Kumar at the ITF Pro Circuit tournament held in late May in Celaya, Mexico, and with partner David Savic at the LX Copa Challenge held in February in Cartagena, Spain.
The Linda Bogdan Memorial Futures Tournament, sponsored by the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, is a men’s $10,000 clay court tournament that has become one of the favorite stops on the Futures Tour for players working their way up the rankings. Bogdan, who passed away in 2009 and was an avid tennis player, was professional football’s first female scout and daughter of Buffalo Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.
