DURHAM, N.C. – Inclement weather moved the match indoors after the first set of singles, where Georgia Tech men’s tennis was unable to down No. 20 Duke, dropping a 4-1 decision on Sunday afternoon at the Ambler Tennis Stadium.
The Yellow Jackets (5-15, 1-9 ACC) finish their grueling road trip of four-straight top-25 foes while the Blue Devils (15-10, 6-4 ACC) were able to snap a slight, two-match losing streak.
Despite the loss, the highlight of the day was junior Chris Yun adding to his current win streak, pushing it to six-straight victories after defeating Duke’s Ryan Dickerson, 6-2, 6-3. Yun is 7-1 since returning to the lineup on March 18.
Elsewhere in singles, Elijah Melendez was unable to down Robert Levine, 6-1, 6-3 at the No. 4 spot, before No. 16 Nicolas Alvarez of Duke defeated No. 54 Carlos Divar, 6-3, 6-2. Phillip Gresk then fell in a tough match 7-5, 6-3 to Nick Stachowiak to clinch the match for the Blue Devils.
In doubles, the No. 81 duo of Stachowiak and Sean Sculley defeated Melendez and Yun, 6-3, while Gresk and Andrew Li were unable to outlast Dickerson and Jason Lapidus, 6-1.
