Liberty Flames men's tennis junior Nicaise Muamba and freshman Goncalo Ferreira are entered in the Malibu 25k ITF Futures tournament and will play in qualifying starting on Monday.

The event, which runs through Nov. 10, will be held at Pepperdine's Ralphs-Straus Tennis Center in Malibu, Calif.

Muamba is familiar with the tournament venue, as he competed at the Oracle ITA Masters, Sept. 26-28 at the Ralphs-Straus Tennis Center. Qualifying will take place on both Monday and Tuesday.

The Laval, Quebec, Canada native just wrapped up playing in another ITF Futures event on Tuesday, the Naples 25k ITF Futures tournament in Naples, Fla. The Liberty junior went 2-1 at that tournament and holds a 9-6 fall singles record while competing in several challenging tournaments. Muamba is No. 65 in the country in the Oracle/ITA Division I Men's Rankings, which list the top-125 singles players in the nation.   

Meanwhile, Ferreira also played in last week's Naples 25k ITF Futures event, posting a 1-1 record. The Barcelos, Portugal, native has five singles victories this fall.
