Entering his second season with the Knights, Jacopo Tezza brings a lot of playing experience to the women's tennis team. He was ranked in the top five in the Italian juniors and even held a ranking on the ATP Tour before venturing to Texas. He was a member of Team Italy for junior tournaments in Miami, Fla., Dortmund, Germany, Geneva, Switzerland, and for the prestigious "Copa Del Sol" event in Spain.

Tezza served as team captain from 2005-06, and was ranked as high as No. 21 as a doubles player in 2004. He helped TCU advance to the Sweet 16 in 2004.
Tezza was a volunteer coach for TCU in the fall of 2006. He also helped coach tennis in the summer of 2006 at the Meadow Club in Southampton, N.Y., and was a coach at A.T. Verona in Italy for four years.
In his first campaign at UCF, Tezza helped the Knights to a 12-9 record with the team collecting 108 singles wins and 60 doubles triumphs.
Tezza graduated with a bachelor's degree in communication studies with a minor in advertising/public relations from TCU.
