(Matt DeVlieger With Andy Roddick April 2 in Miami).
Much of the Calvin community knows of the horrible scuba diving accident that happened to junior Matt DeVlieger last year, an accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down. As a tennis player, Matt’s teammates certainly hold a special place for him in their hearts as he continues down the road of recovery. So with this in mind and with the 2010 season still just in its initial stages of competition, they have a lot to play for in terms of this season’s emotional significance.
