Why Wisconsin






Hello Friends of Badger Men's Tennis,

We are excited to be back home this weekend at Nielsen Tennis Stadium versus two very good B1G TEN Teams.  This Friday at 3pm we take on #25 Northwestern, and finish the weekend Sunday versus Illinois at Noon.  Both matches are scheduled for outdoors, but we will move indoors if needed.  

Your Badgers are currently 2-1 in the B1G TEN with wins over Michigan State and Nebraska.  Our loss came at #4 Michigan two weekends ago.  The match this past Saturday at Nebraska was incredibly exciting as we battled back from a 1-3 deficit to earn a 4-3 win.  We started the match with the critical doubles point, but Nebraska stormed back with three straight-set singles wins to take a 3-1 lead.  The final three matches were all in third sets, and the boys knew we need to be perfect at those spots to get a comeback win.  Gabriel Huber at #3 singles came back from 2-4 in the third set for our second point.  Jared Pratt really stepped up at #2 singles after losing first set in tiebreaker to take the next two sets 6-0, 6-1 to tie the match at 3-3.  Finally, Sebastian Vile (#4 Singles) came up clutch yet again after dropping the first set to clinch the 4-3 team win for the third time this season!

We hope to see you at Nielsen Tennis Stadium this weekend as we play 2 of our 4 home B1G TEN Matches.  Finally, here's another reminder mark your calendars for April 28-May 1 as we host the B1G TEN Team Championships!

As always, thank you for your continued support and ON, WISCONSIN!
