NORFOLK, Va. – The Old Dominion men’s tennis team (4-2) outlasted ETSU (3-2) by a 4-3 score on Sunday afternoon at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center. The Tennis Monarchs are now 4-0 when playing on their home courts.
“What a fantastic dual match,” said ODU head coach Dominik Mueller. “ETSU brought their A game today and pushed us all the way until the end. I’m so proud to see Jannik and Oliver staying composed and finishing out their final sets. I couldn’t be more excited about the future of this team. Beating two high quality teams 4-3 after losing the doubles point is a great sign of character and spirit for any team, especially a young one like ours. But the truth is that we need to fix our doubles play. We can’t keep falling behind like this all the time. The schedule works out great with two weeks until our next match, so we will put in a lot of hours on the courts to improve. We pride ourselves to play the toughest opponents we can find, so heading out to NC State to play a Top 25 in a couple weeks will be a great test for us.”
Old Dominion will return to action on Sunday, Feb. 17, when the Monarchs travel to Raleigh, N.C. to take on No. 25 N.C. State at 1:00 p.m.
