Men's Tennis Captures 5-2 Win Over Louisville

Box Score

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech men’s tennis picked up a 5-2 victory over Louisville at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex on Sunday afternoon. The No. 32 Yellow Jackets (11-8, 5-6 ACC) routed the Cardinals (9-9, 3-6 ACC) in a close match up in doubles, before they took over in singles winning four courts. Sunday’s match served as senior day for academic seniors Zummy Bauer and Brandon Freestone.

In doubles Tech bounced back after dropping position three, collecting wins by No. 50 Marcus McDaniel/Andres Martin on position one and in a tightly contested 7-6 showing by Freestone/Pablo Schelcher. McDaniel/Martin are 2-2 together this season, while Martin is now 11-4 in dual match doubles. Freestone/Schelcher are now 5-3 in dual match doubles when paired with each other.

True freshman Chen Dong was the first Jacket to score in singles, defeating David Mizrahi 6-3, 6-3, on position six, gaining his second straight singles win and improving him to an 8-4 dual match singles record. No. 24 Martin fell on court two to Fabien Salle, but No. 20 McDaniel helped keep Tech afloat with a clutch 6-1, 1-6, 6-4 effort over Tin Chen. McDaniel sports a 15-3 dual match singles record and is 7-3 in singles in conference play.

After Schelcher lost position three to Sergio Hernandez, redshirt freshman Brandon McKinney sealed up the Yellow Jacket win in a third set tiebreaker 2-6, 6-0, 7-6 (4) against Matthew Fung. McKinney improves to an 8-8 dual match singles record. Redshirt freshman Keshav Chopra finished off the Cardinals at position four, earning a win over Josh Howard-Tripp to gain his 10th dual match singles win this year.

Tech finishes with a 7-5 record at home this season. The Jackets will be back on the road next weekend as Tech takes on Boston College on Sunday, April 18 to close out the 2021 regular season.
