Hello Friends of Badger Men's Tennis,
Your Badgers picked up a very gritty 4-3 win over a tough Western Michigan Team last Saturday at Nielsen Tennis Stadium. We had a great atmosphere to begin the match thanks to our Women's Team hosting a kids clinic for local Madison youth! The match, however, did not start of great for our guys, with WMU picking up the always important doubles point with wins at #2 and #3. Gabriel Huber tied the match at 1-1 with a quick 6-1, 6-2 win at #3 singles. Huber has been out since January 31 with an injury and his return gave us a huge lift in our singles lineup. WMU answered with straight set wins at #1 and #4 to take a 3-1 lead with three matches to play. But your Badgers did not flinch! Next, Lenard Soha and Tim Dzhurinskiy continued their strong spring seasons with big wins at #2 and #6 respectively, to tie the match at 3-3. The last man standing for your Badgers was Sebastian Vile at #4 singles for the second time this season. Vile came through once again, coming back after dropping the first set with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 to clinch the dual for the Badgers!
Full Recap HERE.
Up next we travel to San Diego, CA for Spring Break. We play #13 Harvard on Tuesday, March 15 at 10am PST and #37 San Diego on Thursday March 17 at Noon PST. The team is really looking forward to a great trip out West for the opportunity to take on two very good programs. Our next home weekend is not until April 8 versus Northwestern and April 10 versus Illinois. Please also mark your calendars for April 28-May 1 as we get set to host the Big Ten Team Championships. We hope to see you back at Nielsen Tennis Stadium soon!
As always, thank you for all your support!
