The SMU Men's tennis team was selected last May to go to the 2010 All-Conference USA for both singles and doubles.
Artem Baradach competed in the first round of the NCAA Singles Championships last spring, falling to Bradley Klahn of Stanford 6-3, 6-2. Baradach ended the season 22-12 overall.
He was named to the first-team All-C-USA singles team earlier last season.
Last year, doubles pair, Adham el-Effendi and Darren Walsh earned all-doubles honors, and were ranked No. 47 in the nation last season.
Although the Mustangs won both the No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles match, the Mustangs fell 4-1 to Houston in the semifinals of the C-USA Championships.
This season the tennis team welcomes a new assistant coach, Tobias Clemens to the Hilltop. Clemens played singles for UCLA, where he holds the record for most wins at the No. 1 singles position in Bruin history with 119.
"We're really excited to add Tobias to our staff," said head coach Carl Neufeld earlier this year.
