Jamie Fillol (1967-68)

Coral Gables, Fla. - As a former member of Chilean Junior Davis Cup team, Jaime Fillol's presence was felt the moment he stepped on the court of the Coral Gables campus. In 1965-66, his first collegiate season, Fillol posted an 11-4 singles mark and 10-3 doubles mark. Fillol's win in the last match of the regular season, in both singles and doubles play, set the pace for things to come. In the 1966 National Intercollegiate Tennis Championship held here at the University of Miami, the first to be held in this part of the country, Fillol advanced to the fourth round in singles play and the quarters in doubles competition.

Fillol followed his outstanding sophomore season performance with an even better junior season. In the regular season, Fillol went 17-0 in singles and 14-0 in doubles competition. Fillol would reach the finals of singles play and the quarters of doubles in the 1967 National Intercollegiate Tennis Championship. His performance in the Tennis Championship brought his 1967 season record to 23-1 in singles and 17-1 in doubles.

Fillol continued on his path of success by winning his first 11 singles matches of the 1968 season. These 11 wins brought his total to 30 consecutive singles victories. Fillol finished his senior season with a 17-2 mark in singles and 16-0 mark in doubles play. With his perfect doubles mark, Fillol finished his collegiate career with 31 straight victories. For his outstanding season, Fillol was selected as an All-America for the second consecutive season.

Fillol's success at the collegiate level continued at the professional level. In 1969, his first season as professional, Fillol teamed up with fellow Chilean Patrico Cornejo the first of his 15 doubles titles. Four years later, Fillol captured the first of his seven singles titles. Fillol was a singles finalist 11 other times and a doubles finalist 14 other times. On February 3, 1974, Fillol climbed up to the No. 14 ranking, the highest in his career. Four years later Fillol was inducted in the University of Miami's Hall of Fame.
