Hello Friends of Badger Men's Tennis,

Your Badgers had a great weekend on the road picking up two more B1G wins versus Indiana and Purdue.  We are now 5-2 in B1G TEN play and in sole possession of 3rd place heading into our final weekend of regular season play.  

The weekend began in Bloomington in very tough windy conditions leading to a very competitive battle.  We started the match very well picking up the doubles point and two quick singles wins by Jared Pratt at #1 and Sebastian Vile at #4 to take a 3-0 lead.  However, Indiana fought hard and picked up three singles wins of the their own to tie the match.  Gabriel Huber at #3 singles was the last Badger remaining for the deciding match. Huber was down 0-2 in the 3rd set before winning 6 of the remaining 7 games to clinch the match 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 for a 4-3 for the Badgers.

We carried that momentum to Purdue and again, started the match in a dominating fashion.  After winning the doubles point, we next picked up wins from Tim Dzhurinskiy and Gabriel Huber to take a 3-0 lead.  The final point proved very tough as Purdue won at #1 and then the last three matches were all in third sets.  This time Robin Parts picked up the clinching point with a come from behind win at #5, 4-6, 6-3, 6-1.  Lenard Soha and Sebastian Vile then went on to win their respective matches at #2 and #4 to round out a 6-1 win for the Badgers.
