If Paul Nahon was panicking, his voice wasn’t giving it away.
A mere four days before the Springfield Lasers begin their World TeamTennis title defense, Nahon was still looking for another men’s player to round out the four-player roster. That’s because Joe Salisbury has withdrawn from the season with an injury.
“We’re working on finding a replacement as we speak,” Nahon said Wednesday.
Nahon didn't have to worry for long. The Springfield-Greene County Park Board announced at 5 p.m. Thursday that No. 14-ranked Jean-Julien Rojer has signed on for his third season on the Lasers' roster to replace Salisbury.
