Athlete of the Week
Sebastian Gallego, Minnesota
Jr., Medellin, Colombia

Gallego won two singles matches over ranked opponents last weekend to earn his first Big Ten Athlete of the Week honor. Playing at No. 1 singles, the junior battled to three-set wins in each of his matchups. On Friday against No. 82 Joshua Graves of Northwestern, Gallego, ranked No. 80, dropped the first set, but came back to win a 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 decision. His contest on Sunday against 22nd-ranked Marek Michalicka played out similarly to his Friday match. Gallego dropped the first set, but rallied to win the next two, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2, to earn the victory.
