THE FLATS – Georgia Tech men’s tennis was unable to overcome the loss of the doubles point on Sunday afternoon, falling to No. 48 Louisville, 4-3, at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center.

The Yellow Jackets (5-10, 1-4 ACC) led 5-4 on court 2 with Elijah Melendez and Chris Yun taking on the Cardinals’ (13-4, 4-1 ACC) Federico Gomez and Brandon Lancaster, but would drop the 1 and 3 spots, 6-3, 6-4, respectively, to go down 1-0 overall.

In singles, nationally ranked Louisville was able to take the first match at No. 1 as C. Morin-Kougoucheff downed No. 54 Carlos Divar, 6-4, 6-0, before 98th-ranked Parker Wynn defeated Phillip Gresk, 6-2, 6-3.

Melendez was unable to best Gomez at the 3 spot, falling 6-3, 6-3 as the Cardinals clinched the match.

The Jackets wouldn’t give up, however, battling to victories at No. 4-6. Andrew Li got the ball rolling for Tech with a hard-fought 6-4, 7-6 (4) win at the 5 over George Hedley. Michael Kay then returned to form, defeating Nicolas Rouanet in a come-from-behind win, 4-6, 6-3, 10-5.

C. Yun finished the day with his second-straight win this weekend, defeating Lancaster at No. 6 position, 6-4, 5-7, 10-7.
