NORMAN, Okla. – OU men’s tennis head coach John Roddick announced today that Tsvetan Mihov, a product of Sofia, Bulgaria, has signed a letter of intent to become an Oklahoma Sooner.
Mihov recently competed in the 2010 Davis Cup where he won the doubles point for Bulgaria in their meet. In addition, Mihov was the 2009 Bulgarian National Champion.
“We are excited to get someone that is the caliber that he is,” head coach John Roddick said. “He has done very well in Futures tournaments. He has played Davis cup for Bulgaria. That adds a really high level of team tennis experience that we don’t have. We had a tough battle recruiting him and we are really happy to get him. I know he is going to have an immediate impact on our team when he shows up.”
In addition to Mihov’s Davis Cup participation, the south-eastern European was a semifinalist at the 2009 F7 Futures, quarterfinalist at the 2008 F5 Futures, doubles winner at the 2007 Prince Cup, doubles semifinalist at the 2007 European Junior Championships and a singles semifinalist at the 2006 Prince Cup.
Mihov is the Sooners only spring signee and will enroll in the fall of 2010.
