This weekend at the Ivy Plus Tournament, the strategy for the Harvard men’s tennis team was to divide and conquer. With players taking on seven matches throughout the three-day event, the team had several standout performances in the first Ivy League play of the season.
This weekend, the Beren Tennis Center witnessed 78 matches as the Harvard men’s tennis team took on Illinois, Notre Dame, and Texas A&M in the grueling Chowder Fest tournament.
Although the Crimson dropped a season-altering match to Dartmouth, freshman Andy Zhou crushed his Big Green opponent to prevent the clean sweep. That performance continued a season in which the freshman has compiled a five-match winning streak and a 17-11 record, the highest mark on the team.
By beating his Big Green opponent, Andy Zhou capped off an impressive season on a high note, finishing with a team-best 17-11 record.
This weekend, the No. 48 Harvard men’s tennis team extended its winning streak to four, hosting Yale on Friday and traveling to Brown on Sunday. With its 4-2 in-conference record, the Crimson ranks fourth in the Ivy League.
Finding confidence at home, the No. 50 Harvard men’s tennis team (13-10, 2-2) triumphantly ended the weekend with two Ivy League victories.The Crimson bested Penn 6-1 (7-13, 2-2) on Saturday and overcame No.37 Princeton (14-8, 2-2) on Sunday for a close 4-3 win.
After an up and down season, the Crimson is looking to start its conference slate on a high note. After finishing second in the Ivy League last year, Harvard is looking to come up with big wins against rivals Columbia and Cornell this weekend to take an early lead in conference standings.
For a chance at redemption against the Lions and to start its conference season on a strong note, Harvard will need to learn from its otherwise rocky season and harness the momentum from its past three victories.
After struggling to find a groove the past couple weeks, the Harvard men's tennis team put together wins against two ranked opponents.
After a three-week break, the No. 49 Harvard men’s tennis team (10-8) returned to the courts this past weekend in San Diego, CA., for the Hilton San Diego Mission Valley Spring Classic. Harvard ended the weekend with two losses and a decisive victory on Sunday against San Diego State.
