Dean Wins Finals of "G" Singles Draw

FLUSHING, N.Y. - The Yale men's tennis team wrapped up the three-day USTA Invitational on Sunday, with three Bulldogs reaching the final round. Junior Zachary Dean won the finals of the "G" singles draw, the seventh of nine brackets for singles play, after defeating GW's Richard Blumenfeld in straight sets (6-4, 6-4). Dean won all four matches of the tournament in two sets.

On the doubles side, sophomores Patrick Chase and Tommy Ratchford came up just short against Brown's duo of Tim Klanke and Jacob Laser (8-6) in the "D" draw.

The Bulldogs will return to action next week for the ITA All-American Championship Pre-Qualifying round in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
