Main Draw Day Two Results

Consolation Day Two Results

The men’s tennis team wrapped up day two of the Penn Invitational yesterday in Philadelphia, Pa. The Gophers continued success in doubles competition while results varied among singles action.

Both doubles teams continued their dominance to advance to today’s semifinal round. Eric Frueh and Brendan Ruddock defeated Specter and To (Brown) by a score of 8-5. Juan Pablo Ramirez and Tucker Saxon claimed the 8-6 win over Barrus and Gates (St. Josephs). The pairs will start the final day of competition this morning at 9 a.m.  for their places in the final match-ups.

In main draw individual play, the Gophers fought hard to maintain their heat streaks at the tournament. Ramirez started off hot with a victory over Ismael Lahlou (Penn), but lost momentum in the semifinals to fall 6-1, 6-2 to Princeton’s Dan Richardson. Saxon was eliminated from title contention after an extended battle with Lucas Da Silveira, in which he came up short, 7-5, 7-5.

Ruddock was bounced out of consolation after losing 6-0, 6-3, while Frueh lasted one round by overcoming Garret Dunn (6-3, 6-4), before falling to Blaine Willenborg in the consolation semis.

The final day of competition begins with the semifinals for doubles and consolation finals and 9 a.m. Singles finals will follow with doubles finals to close out the event.
