(Rochester, MN) – Eric has won a total of 13 ATP doubles titles and attained a career high ranking of number 17 in the world. In February of this year, he and partner Bruno Soares triumphed at the Brasil Open in Sao Paolo. This victory came shortly after their January defeat in the quarterfinals at Australian Open, which marked Eric’s third straight quarterfinals or better appearance in Melbourne, as well as the third year in a row that he was defeated by the tournament’s eventual champions. In May, Eric had a relative breakthrough when he earned his first two match wins on the red clay at Roland Garros, making it into the third round of the French Open. Now in his fifth year as a doubles representative on the ATP Player Council, Eric also enjoys working with tour officials and tournament directors to make administrative decisions related to tournament scheduling, format, and prize money. (Eric was a Minnesota state high school champion in singles, as well as an NCAA Division III Doubles Champion at Gustavus Adolphus College.).
