Day One Results

The Minnesota men’s tennis team opened play today for the Gopher Invitational at Baseline Tennis Center in Minneapolis, Minn. The Gophers welcome DePaul, Dartmouth, Denver, Drake, and Nebraska to compete in the four day tournament.

For the singles competition, there will be 8 groups (A, B, C…).  Each group will have 1 player from each team, totaling 5 players for each group.  Each player will play 4 other players within their group.  No one will play someone on their own team, and there will be no repeat matches vs. the same player.  DePaul is the only team that will not have 8 players, so Group H will only have 5 players.

For doubles competition, there will be 4 groups (A, B, C, & D).  Each group will have 1 doubles team from each team, totaling 5 teams for each group.  Each doubles team will play 4 of the other teams within their group.

The first day of competition saw a face-off between Minnesota and Denver. Three of four individuals picked up wins in the singles category while both Gopher teams earned victories in doubles action.

Rok Bonin and Mathieu Froment teamed up to defeated Denver’s Jens Vorkefeld and Max Krammer, 8-3. Juan Pablo Ramirez and Eric Frueh formed the other Gopher duo and defeated Alex Clinkenbeard and Preben Bjorne in straight sets.

On the singles side, Bonin, Ramirez and Frueh each notched wins on the day. Bonin edged Vorkefeld (7-5, 6-3) while Ramirez defeated Clinkenbeard (6-1, 6-3). Frueh battled Bjorne to win 6-2, 6-2 and Froment dropped the only match of the day for Minnesota, falling 6-3, 6-2 to Krammer.
