Charlottesville, Va. - The Old Dominion University men's tennis team got off to a slow start in its fall opener, as the Monarchs went 1-4 in singles play during the opening day of the UVA Fall Invitational in Charlottesville.

Alex Seleznev earned the Monarchs' only victory of the day with a win in the Yellow singles bracket. Seleznev opened the competition against the 62nd ranked Roy Sichel of Charlotte and won the first set 6-0. However, Sichel rallied to take the final two sets 7-5, 6-4 to advance to the quarterfinals. Seleznev bounced back in the consolation quarterfinals to defeat Penn State's Adam Slagter 7-5, 6-3.

Senior Eidy Igarashi also competed in the Yellow singles bracket where he fell in the opening round 6-4, 6-4 to North Carolina State's Jay Weinacker, ranked No. 125 in the country.
