NORFOLK, Va. - The Old Dominion men’s tennis team (7-1) defeated Elon (1-5) by a 5-2 score on Sunday afternoon at the Folkes-Stevens Tennis Center. The Monarchs clinched their victory with a 4-0 score.

“I was very pleased with our intensity and focus level in doubles,” said ODU head coach Dominik Mueller. “We can see progress in doubles and that's encouraging. We got off to a good start in singles and won three matches in straight sets. I wish we could have closed some off the other matches a little better, but overall another great team win.”

No. 24 Adam Moundir made it 2-0 for ODU when he defeated Felipe Sarrasague 7-5, 6-2.
