Hello Friends of Badger Men's Tennis,
I would like to first thank all of you for your support this season. Our team really grew as the season went on and once at full strength, we played some fantastic tennis. Last week at Nielsen during the Big Ten Tournament was special! We would have loved to go a bit further in event, but the crowd and atmosphere was electric! Thank you to all the fans that made it out! You all made it an experience our players will never forget!
The match versus Illinois started great for your Badgers. In Doubles play, Robin Parts and Sebastian Vile won their match at #1. A new pair of Gabriel Huber and Lenard Soha clinched the first point with an incredibly tense tiebreaker win at #3. In singles, we battled incredibly hard, but unfortunately, we could not beat the Illini for a second time this season. Full Recap with box scores below:

We are incredibly proud of the growth and accomplishments of our team this season. We finished 3rd in the Big Ten which was our highest conference finish since 2008. Individually, Jared Pratt had a very solid season and earned a Second-Team All Big Ten Selection. What was very exciting about this group was that different players stepped up in different times of the season to clinch or win must have individual matches. We were 6-1 in 4-3 matches this season which speaks to the team first mentality we played with. We cannot wait to get going next season as we return 6 of our 8 players and add two very good recruits for this fall.
We truly appreciate all your support and while our last match at Nielsen was a loss, you all made it very special.
Wishing you all a great summer and we are already looking forward to getting back on the courts with this group next fall.

Wishing all of you a fantastic summer!
