Hard Fought Battle for Men’s Tennis at Tribe Invitational

Harvard will return to action next spring with its first dual match against SMU (Paul Rutherford). 

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – The Harvard men's tennis team completed its final event of the fall season this weekend at the Tribe Invitational hosted by William & Mary. Members of the Crimson squad compiled an overall record of 15-8 in singles and 5-3 in doubles action against competition from six other teams. Andrew Ball, Galen Lee, Michael Peters, Grant Solomon, Jean Thirouin, Logan Weber, Robert Wrzesinski, Andy Zhou and Constantin Zoske all competed for Harvard.

The Crimson had a standout first and second day of tournament play, finishing undefeated in doubles action on day two and entering day three with a 13-3 singles record.

Andrew Ball (2-0) and Grant Solomon (3-0) finished the weekend undefeated in singles play, while Robert Wrzesinski and Constantin Zoske (3-0) went undefeated as partners in doubles. Ball remains undefeated in singles action this fall, with a 6-0 record. 

Other notable achievements include six Harvard players finishing 2-1 in doubles action, including Galen Lee, Michael Peters, Grant Solomon, Jean Thirouin, Logan Weber and Andy Zhou.

"It was a strong finish to the fall season", stated associate head coach Andrew Rueb. "I was really proud of the way the team carried themselves and competed under pressure. The team is certainly learning their lessons and building their games one brick at a time. Everyone had something to be proud of over the three days of matches from our seniors - Jean Thirouin and Grant Solomon - who lead by example to our freshmen - Constantin Zoske and Robert Wrzesinski. I'm excited to continue to consolidate the lessons from the fall and push ahead in the last few weeks of training."
