The Yale men’s tennis team produced one of its best performances of the season on Saturday, besting Brown 5-2 in a tight match that featured three three-set matches and tested the nerves of players and fans alike.

Yale Looks to Finish the Season Strong against Brown
The Yale men’s tennis team will square off against Brown this Saturday in an effort to end the season on a positive note after a recent string of conference losses. Although the Bears (15-7, 1-5 Ivy) hold a better overall record than the Bulldogs, both teams have produced similar results in Ivy League competition and appear evenly matched at this point in the season. The Elis, who played particularly well this past weekend in a close loss to No. 34 Harvard, will need to keep that same focus if they want to improve their 9-3 home record and send off their seniors in style. The ball is scheduled to drop on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at Yale’s home courts.

Bulldogs Fall to No. 47 Dartmouth
The Yale men’s tennis team came into Sunday’s match against Dartmouth off the heels of a promising performance against rival No. 34 Harvard, in which the Bulldogs forced several three-set matches and lost by a slim margin. The Elis traveled to Hanover with a key element missing, however, as junior Martin Svenning was not healthy enough to play at No. 2 singles; as a result, Yale’s younger players were thrust into higher positions against better competition. This complication, along with Dartmouth’s dominant singles play, led to a third straight 5-2 loss for the Bulldogs, who have now slipped to an overall record of 11-11 (1-5 Ivy). Despite the disappointing score line, Yale submitted some positive performances on Sunday that bode well for the future.

Yale Drops Close Match to Rival No. 34 Harvard
Knowing that rival Harvard (17-6, 3-1) would likely come into Friday’s clash with some complacency after sweeping the two teams’ first meeting this past February, the Bulldogs looked to catch the Crimson off guard with their drastic improvement in recent months. Despite the day ending in a 5-2 loss for the Elis, they succeeded in surprising their rival and nearly pulled off the massive upset; in a match that featured three three-set matches, Yale came up just a few games short of topping Ivy League title contender Harvard.

Bulldogs Gear Up for Crucial Matches against No. 34 Harvard and No. 47 Dartmouth
The Yale men’s tennis team is preparing to face two tough opponents this weekend as the third leg of its Ivy League season kicks off. The Bulldogs, who have now dropped three straight league matches after a breakthrough win over Penn in the Ivy opener, will be looking to right the ship against two nationally ranked foes, No. 34 Harvard and No. 47 Dartmouth. Harvard (17-6, 3-1) is competing for this year’s Ivy League title and scored a crucial win over Princeton in its last match; Dartmouth (11-10, 2-2) has also impressed recently with victories over Penn and Princeton last weekend. The Elis will first play Harvard on their home courts on Friday; they will then travel to Hanover to square off against Dartmouth on Sunday. Both matches this weekend will start at 1:00 p.m.
April 11, 2015
Yale Falls to No. 22 Columbia in Abbreviated Match
The Yale men’s tennis team fell to an overall record of 11-8 (1-2 Ivy) on Saturday with a 4-0 loss to No. 22 Columbia at the Dick Savitt Tennis Center. This result continued Columbia’s great recent form, as the Lions have now won three straight conference matches to start their Ivy League season, and look to be the Ivy League’s strongest squad. Although Saturday’s teams only completed the doubles round and three singles matches before the result was decided for Columbia (and the match cut short), the score of the remaining unfinished matches were a bright spot for the Bulldogs.
April 9, 2015
Bulldogs Travel to New York for Second Leg of Ivy League Season
The Yale men’s tennis team will travel to New York this weekend and square off against two of the Ivy League’s toughest teams, No. 22 Columbia and No. 51 Cornell. Despite a loss in their last match, the Bulldogs (11–7 overall, 1–1 Ivy) will head into this weekend’s action with considerable confidence after posting a breakthrough victory over Penn in their Ivy League season opener last Saturday. While Columbia is making a strong case for best team in the Ivy League this season (as reflected by its ranking and 3-0 Ivy record), Cornell has also impressed with a recent 5-2 win over No. 54 Dartmouth. Yale will play Columbia on Saturday at the Dick Savitt Tennis Center, and then travel to Ithaca to face Cornell on Sunday; both matches will begin at 1:00 p.m.
April 5, 2015
Bulldogs Come up Short against No. 27 Princeton
The Yale men’s tennis team came into Sunday’s match against Princeton on the heels of its most impressive result of the season, a 5-2 victory over No. 67 Penn. Although the Bulldogs were carrying some positive momentum into Sunday’s home match, Princeton (17-4) proved simply too strong on the day and truly played like one of the best teams in the nation. Despite a generally disappointing 6-1 score line, the Elis can take pride in the fact that they excelled in doubles and put in a gutsy singles performance against such a tough opponent.
April 4, 2015
Yale Posts Breakthrough Win in Ivy League Season Opener
The Yale men’s tennis team submitted arguably its best performance of the season on Saturday with a decisive 5-2 victory over No. 67 Penn, marking the Bulldogs’ first win over a nationally ranked opponent in 2015. Although the Elis came into Saturday’s Ivy League season opener having lost two straight matches, they looked confident from the outset and performed at an extremely high level across the board in singles.

The ball is scheduled to drop at 1:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday at the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center.

Bulldogs Suffer Narrow Defeat in Final Preparation for Ivy League Season
In its last match before the start of Ivy League competition, the Yale men’s tennis team fell just games short of victory in a narrow 4-3 loss to St. John’s. Although the Bulldogs will be disappointed to lose another tight match to St. John’s for the second straight year, they came into Sunday’s match without the help of Martin Svenning at No. 2 singles and managed to perform well considering his absence at the top of the lineup. As the Elis gear up to face Penn in the Ivy League season opener next week, such a competitive match – in which several of Yale’s younger players gained valuable experience in higher positions – will serve as a great tune-up.
