CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard men's tennis opens its spring slate with William & Mary and Boston College Saturday afternoon at the Murr Tennis Center.

LIVE! From the Murr, It's Men's Tennis
For the second-straight year, all Murr Center matches will be streamed live on the Ivy League Digital Network. Subscribers to the network can watch matches both live and on-demand at their convenience, and will have access to live and on-demand content for all Harvard athletic events through the duration of their subscription.

In the Rankings
Harvard opens the season at No. 32 in the nation in the first Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) poll. Senior captain Nicky Hu sits at No. 71 to start the season. Three Crimson doubles pairs are ranked, with junior Sebastian Beltrame and sophomore Kenny Tao sitting at No. 32 and Brian Yeung/Andy Zhou at No. 39. Yeung and Hu come in at No. 44 when paired together.   

Scouting William & Mary
William & Mary starts its 2016 campaign with three Ivy League schools, heading to Yale Friday and taking on Brown Monday. Sophomore Alex Miller leads the W&M, collecting six wins in fall play. Harvard holds a 9-1 all-time advantage over the Tribe, including a 5-2 win a season ago.


Scouting BC
Boston College is led by junior Hank Workman, who was the lone Eagle to compete in singles play at the USTA/ITA Northeast Regional tournament. Harvard owns a perfect 9-0 all-time series mark against BC, in a series that dates back to 1949. The two teams last met in 2012, a 6-1 Crimson win.

Last Year
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.
