Won his first-round match this morning. Advancing to 2nd round, but time, date and opponent are TBD.

That’s huge. He’s already won over $100k by advancing to the second round. So awesome. Hopefully this will get him direct entry into some atp events.

Up next is 24 seed Diego Schwartzman of Argentina. That will be a tough out, bit good luck!

If I'm interpreting your question in its intended context, my answer would be, "No, he actually is a former Tulane tennis star, so it reflects why he's being singled out for the article."
In other cases where fans are legitimately irked by the local press' depiction of in-transferees to Tulane, it is analogous to describing an Army General as "Former Lieutenant Jones." That is an insulting characterization, even though it is true.

Koepfer lost in straight sets to Diego Schwartzman of Argentina Thursday. See you next year.

But this does not address the DJ Lemahieu scandal?

German article on his path to Tulane and beyond … a good read on what hard work can achieve.
