A three-year team captain and MVP on the Triton Men's Tennis team, hard-charging Michael Meyer played either No. 1 or No.2 singles and doubles for four years. He went to the NCAA Division III Championships as an individual in 2000 and was the NCAA West Region's Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship winner in 2002.
Following his graduation, Meyer traveled through France with UC San Diego teammate Sameer Chopra playing in professional tournaments and training with former UCSD assistant coach Jean-Michel Piazza. He returned from Europe in late 2003 and since January 2004 has worked at De La Rosa & Co. investment bank, specializing in public finance with clients that include the nation's largest cities and public agencies. He has been involved in over 50 municipal bond financings, worth several billion dollars.
Meyer still plays and occasionally teaches tennis and has hopes of potentially returning to the tennis industry in the future. He captains a USTA team out of the Golden Gateway Club in San Francisco which includes another former UCSD standout, Jeff Wilson. The team has made the nationals the last three years, finishing second in 2008. Meyer is also a volunteer at East Palo Alto Tennis & Tutoring, teaching his sport and tutoring underprivileged fifth and sixth graders.
