The Minnesota Golden Gophers men’s tennis team began its home schedule on Friday with two matches. The Gophers, who are ranked No. 39, hosted Green Bay in the afternoon and then welcomed Marquette to Baseline Tennis Center for an evening matchup.

Minnesota beat Green Bay 4-1 and defeated Marquette by the same score to push its record to 3-2 this year. The Gophers have now won three straight matches after dropping their first two of the season against ranked foes Oklahoma State and Notre Dame 

Minnesota lost the doubles point in the afternoon against Green Bay, but then rebounded with four straight wins in singles to start the year 1-0 at home.

Leandro Toledo made quick work of Howard Scott at No. 1 singles, winning 6-1, 6-1 to level the overall match 1-1. Mathieu Froment then gave the Gophers the lead for good with a 6-2, 6-4 victory at third singles against Leopold Gomez Islinger.

Jeremy Lynn picked up a win at No. 4 singles as he dropped Rowan Isaaks 6-4, 6-4. Franz Sydow then clinched the match for the Gophers with a 6-2, 6-5 (5) triumph at fifth singles against Joey Leto.

Ruben Weber and Eric Frueh were leading their matches for Minnesota when Sydow closed things out for the Gophers.

Minnesota started its night match against Marquette by claiming the doubles point. Froment and Jack Hamburg won at first doubles, while Toledo and Sydow were victorious at second doubles.

Froment then put the Gophers up 2-0 with a 6-3, 6-3 dispatching of Gleb Skylr at No. 3 singles. Toledo won his fourth straight match after he posted a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 against Vukasin Teofanovic at first singles.

Nick Dykema kept Marquette alive with a three set-win at fifth singles against Lynn, but Sydow, like he did earlier in the day, won the match for the Gophers with a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory against Cameron Tehrani.

The Gophers return to action when they host No. 63 Arkansas at 12 p.m. on Feb. 2.
