Men’s Tennis Wraps Fall with Successful Bulldog Scramble

ATHENS, Ga. – Harvard men's tennis wrapped the fall slate with a successful outing at the Bulldog Scramble over the weekend. Junior Brian Yeung went 2-1 over the weekend against top competition, also picking up a doubles win over Georgia with Andy Zhou.

"The Bulldog Scramble was a great event to end the fall," said associate head coach Andrew Rueb. "There was high level tennis all weekend against some of the best teams in the country. It was clear that all the hard work we put in during the last few months is starting to come to fruition.  Yeung and Zhou along with Beltrame and Tao went 3-1 in doubles on the weekend. Everyone had some great matches and wins to build on for the coming season.

"It was great having Sebastian back competing after sitting most of the fall with injuries," continued Rueb. "His dynamic game and improved doubles skills was a big boost for us."  

Yeung defeated Emil Reinberg (Georgia), 6-1, 6-0, on day one before upending Grayson Broadus of Notre Dame in straight sets (6-1, 7-6(3)) on day two. Chris Morrow bested Oklahoma's John Milstead (6-1, 6-3) on day one, also taking down Casey Kay of Georgia Tech.

Zhou posted a 3-1 singles record at the event, upending Grayson Broadus, Daniel Rayl and Nicolas Montoya from Notre Dame. Senior captain Conor Haughey earned two wins in singles action, defeating Kay (Georgia Tech) in straight sets and coming back from a set down to defeat Nathan Griffin of UND.

"The Bulldog Scramble was a great way for us to end the fall season," said Haughey. "All of the guys worked really hard and played a lot of matches this fall, and it was put to the test against some of the top teams in the country this weekend, where we all competed really hard and played some really good tennis. Having this tournament wrap up our fall season was important for us to know what it takes to compete with the best teams in college tennis, and having that fresh in our minds as we enter the off season is an awesome motivator. We are going to use everything we have learned this fall, especially this past weekend in Georgia, to fuel us for the offseason and push us to work hard and get better."  

The Crimson will be back in action at the Murr Center against Boston College Jan. 16. The match will be shown live on the Ivy League Digital Network.
