Last Time Out
The Crimson wrapped the Aggie Fall Invite last weekend, facing off in a round-robin format against No. 5 Texas A&M, No. 19 Texas Tech and No. 6 Illinois. The Crimson faced off against three elite conferences - the SEC, Big 12 and Big Ten - holding their own against the top-ranked competition. Working in the top spot, senior captain Nicky Hu went 1-3 against fierce competition, upsetting No. 35 Shane Vinsant of Texas A&M (7-5, 6-4) in round two. Freshman Andy Zhou completed a solid weekend, earning a 2-2 record with wins over Toshiki Matsuya of Illinois and No. 79 Jolan Cailleau (Texas Tech).
The Crimson is coming off an appearance in the NCAA Tournament, as Denis Nguyen '15 also earned a spot at the NCAA Individuals and teamed with Brian Yeung to head to the doubles championship.
On the Sidelines
David Fish, the Scott Mead '77 Family Head Coach for Harvard Men's Tennis, enters his 40th season with the Crimson after coaching the men's tennis team to an 19-8 record last season and leading the Crimson to NCAA tournament for the fourth-straight season. Fish owns an all-time dual record of 647-292-1 and has led the Crimson to a top-40 finish in each of the last four seasons.
The Crimson will be off for two weekends before heading to New Haven, Connecticut for the ITA Regionals.
