June 1, 2006

Santa Barbara, Calif. - UCSB Men's Tennis Head Coach Marty Davis announced the signing of Denmark native Philip Therp to a national letter of intent today.

Therp, a seven-time Danish national finalist in singles and a six-time Danish juniors doubles champion, figures to make a significant contribution to the Gauchos in 2006-07.

"Therp has a very solid baseline stroke and brings tons of international experience," Davis said. "He will have an immediate impact on our team and in our conference."

Therp comes to Santa Barbara with a hefty resume already intact. In U-16's, Therp was ranked No. 32 in Europe after playing in just four European Tennis Association (ETA) tournaments. That same year, Therp earned a No. 1 ranking in Denmark.
