Williamsburg, Va. – The ODU men’s tennis team closed out its regular season on Sunday with a 5-2 loss to visiting South Alabama as the Monarchs said goodbye to their lone senior Aleksandr Seleznev on Senior Day.


The Monarchs won the No. 1 doubles match 8-3 as Matt Fawcett and Tobias Fanselow defeated the Jaguar duo of Romain Bocaert and Hanno Bartsch.  However, South Florida came back to win the doubles point with victories at No. 2 and 3.


The singles competition was fierce as all but one match went into a third set.  Attempting to win his final match at Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center, Seleznev could not hold off South Alabama’s Marek Sramek who won 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 at No. 1.  Fanselow and Fawcett accounted for ODU’s two points on the day with wins at No. 2 and No. 3 respectively.  Fanselow knocked off Bocaert 6-4, 0-6, 6-4 and Fawcett was too much for Leo Dominguez, earning the 5-7, 7-5, 10-3 win.


The Monarchs will now shift their focus to the upcoming CAA Championships which will be held on the campus of ODU beginning this Thursday, April 16.
