CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard men's tennis kicked off the 2014-15 campaign with a strong showing at the Chowdah Fest over the weekend. The Crimson hosted San Diego, USF and Alabama at the Beren Tennis Center.  

Uros Petronijevic of San Diego was the Dale Junta '58 Player of the Tournament. Harvard senior Denis Nguyen went 3-1 on the weekend and was the runner-up of the top flight, besting Alabama's Becker O'Shaughnessey (6-2, 6-1) Sunday.

Sophomore Brian Yeung, undefeated on the weekend, was the winner of Flight 2, downing Stuart Kenyon (7-5, 6-1), of Alabama in the final round. 

Nguyen and Yeung, sitting No. 36 in the ITA preseason doubles rankings, teamed up to take home the doubles title. The pair won two matches on the weekend, besting Oliver Pramming and Justin Roberts of USF in the finals.

The Crimson will split up next weekend, heading to the Napa Valley Classic and the Ivy Plus Tournament at Princeton.
