Men's Tennis Winning Streak Snapped at Five

Men's Tennis Winning Streak Snapped at Five

The Ohio Dominican men's tennis team struggled from the outset on Saturday morning, dropping their fourth GLIAC match of the year, 6-3, to host Wayne State University.

Doubles was a struggle from the beginning as the Warriors took early control on all three courts. No Panther team was able to build any momentum as WSU took 3-of-3 courts to lead 3-0 after doubles play.

In singles play, the Panthers looked to rebound as Walid Gtari (Fr./Tunis, Tunisia) earned a 6-0, 6-0 win on court one to give ODU hope. With the Warriors taking the next two courts, the match was sealed, leaving courts five and six still competing. Justin Tjon (Fr./Willemstad, Curacao) and Gerardo Perez (So./Mexico City, Mexico) earned singles points, taking #5 and #6 singles, 6-4, 2-6, 10-4 and 7-5, 7-6, respectively.

The Panthers will now return home for six straight GLIAC matches beginning April 4th. ODU hosts Walsh University in a match that is set to begin at 3 p.m.
