Where Are They Now?
Former Cavaliers Huey and Inglot Reach ATP Doubles Heights

While teammates at the University of Virginia, Dom Inglot and Treat Huey never played doubles together. But several years later, their friendship led them to join forces on the ATP tour, where they are currently ranked 14th in world.

The 28-year-old Huey, who was born in Washington DC and raised in Virginia, won both the All-American and ITA Indoor doubles titles with two-time NCAA singles champion Somdev Devvarman in 2007, while Inglot, a 27-year-old from London, England, captured the 2009 NCAA doubles title with Michael Shabaz.

After a few post-college years playing both singles and doubles, Inglot and Huey began concentrating on doubles, and in 2012 won their first ATP title at the Citi Open in Washington. Huey, whose mother is from the Philippines, represents that country in Davis Cup play, although Charlottesville, Virginia is his current home and training base.

At this year's US Open, No. 16 seeds Inglot and Huey, who also were seeded at Wimbledon this year, reached their first slam quarterfinal. I spoke to them about what they gained from their college experience, their long-term goals, the proposed format change in college tennis, and where they were in May, when Virginia won its first NCAA team title.


Questions and Answers

Colette Lewis (CL): How did college tennis prepare you for the professional game?

Dominic Inglot (DI): I feel like when I was looking at going to college, as a European, college was seen as the end of your time, that here's what you've done to go and get a good education, play some more fun tennis, but that'll be the end of it.

But I think college was the preparation for this, a springboard to help go into professionals. This is personally for me, but if I had not gone to college I don't think I would be here because it taught me some valuable lessons about toughing situations out.
