Norfolk, Va. – The fourth-seeded ODU men’s tennis team fell just short of advancing to the CAA Championship finals when the No. 4 seed Monarchs fell 4-3 to top seeded Seahawks of UNC Wilmington, Saturday afternoon at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center.


UNCW fell into an early hole after the Monarchs captured the doubles point. ODU’s number one tandem of Tobias Fanselow and Matt Fawcett beat Ryan Ybarra and Gustavo Bertei, 8-4 and the number two duo of Aleksandr Seleznev and Alex Funkhouser defeated Illia Ziamtsou and Kinshuk Sharma, 8-6.


The Seahawks got a 6-1, 6-1 win at number four singles from Ybarra over Yakov Diskin, but the Monarchs moved ahead 3-1 after a 6-1, 6-2 triumph by Seleznev over Bertei at number one and a 6-2, 6-4 victory by Krzysztof Muzalewski over Alex Wetherell at number six. UNCW swept the remaining matches to earn the victory, however. Ziamtsou topped Funkhouser, 6-3, 7-5 at number five, Michael Pereira outlasted Fanselow, 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 at number two and Sharma clinched the win by rallying for a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Fawcett at number three.
