Nov. 2, 2013

MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota men’s tennis team earned one doubles victory and went winless in singles of the third day of Gopher Invitational play at the Baseline Tennis Center Saturday afternoon. Jack Hamburg and Mathieu Froment prevailed in the top doubles flight to give the Gophers their only triumph of the day.

The Gophers are now 4-5 in doubles on the weekend and will finish at 9-11 in singles.

In doubles play, Pennsylvania’s Jeremy Court and Vim DeAlwis topped Minnesota’s freshman duo of Jeremy Lynn and Franz Sydow, while UP’s Zach Katz and Thomas Spratt snuck past the Gophers’ Ruben Weber and Tucker Saxon, 8-6.

Hamburg and Froment, however, cruised past the Quakers’ Matt Nardella and Nikola Kucovic, 8-3, to remain undefeated in the top flight of doubles play. The tandem is 3-0 on the weekend.

All six Gophers followed doubles play with singles losses. Weber and Saxon both fell in 10-point supertiebreakers. Minnesota is now done with singles play for the weekend. Hamburg finished 2-1 on the weekend, while Eric Frueh was 2-0 before missing Saturday due to injury. All other Gophers went 1-2.

Minnesota finishes tournament play with a final round of doubles Sunday afternoon at 2. Opponents for each day and time will be determined immediately before the matches  begin.

Minnesota will conclude its fall schedule Nov. 8-10 at the Dick Vitale Intercollegiate Claycourt Tennis Tournament in Sarasota, Fla.
