Former Campbell University standout Davy Sum is in his third year playing on the International Tennis Federation Futures Tour.
The native of Strasbourg, France is now ranked No.-600 in the world in singles after reaching as high as No.-585 in late May. He stands No.-682 in the world doubles rankings after moving as high as No.-574 last month.
This season Sum has twice reached the semifinals in tournaments in Turkey (outdoors) and France (indoors). On the year, he owns a 15-13 record in singles. Since turning pro in 2011, Sum owns a 39-43 all-time singles record on the ITF Futures Tour.
A four-time all-conference choice and the 2011 Atlantic Sun men's tennis player of the year, Sum won Campbell's 2010-11 Outstanding Male Athlete award.
Sum won more singles matches – 108 (against just 29 losses) – than any player in Campbell men's tennis history. As a senior in 2011 he was unbeaten in 20 matches and was a unanimous choice as the Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Year.
He was listed number-118 in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association national singles rankings, eighth in the Carolina Region singles charts and seventh in the final regional doubles ratings. He also received an invitation to the NCAA singles national tournament.
Sum lost only two sets in 20 matches during the 2011 spring campaign. In addition to four-straight first-team all-league singles honors, Sum also earned second-team all-conference recognition in doubles, compiling an 18-2 record during the spring 2011 season.
He was recognized as A-Sun Player of the Week seven times in his career. Last fall, Sum won the Davidson Invitational tournament, advanced to the round of 16 at the prestigious Southern Collegiates and reached the semifinals in doubles with Dominik Kaniewski at the ITA Regionals.
In addition, Sum earned A-Sun all-academic honors in each of his four seasons.
