Charlottesville, Va. – Despite a win over the No. 2 doubles team in the country and a singles victory over a highly ranked opponent, the Old Dominion University men’s tennis team still could not upend top ranked Virginia, falling to the Cavaliers 6-1 Tuesday afternoon.

 

The Cavaliers (15-0) secured the doubles point with wins at No. 2 and No. 3 doubles, but the No. 1 match was still being decided.  End the end, the Monarchs 53rd ranked duo of Aleksandr Seleznev and Tobias Fanselow defeated the nation’s No. 2 team in Virginia’s Houston Barrick and Sanam Singh, 8-5.

 

With four players nationally ranked, the Cavaliers dominated singles play by winning five of the six matches in straight sets.  However, ODU’s lone senior Seleznev again accounted for the Monarchs (13-9) only bright spot.  After dropping the first set of his match to the 12th ranked Singh, Seleznev rebounded for the 4-6, 7-6, 10-7 victory.

 

The Monarchs return to action this weekend when they’ll host Marquette on Friday and Harvard on Saturday.
