Brandeis tennis splits weekend

March 15, 2019

Over the weekend, the Brandeis tennis program had a busy weekend filled with a few matches. While the men’s team advanced their record to 6-2 with a 7-2 victory over Tufts, the women fell to MIT 5-4.

During Sunday’s rounds of doubles, the Judges earned their first win versus the Jumbos after David Aizenberg ’20 and Anupreeth Coramutla ‘21 defeated their opponents, 8-6. Another successful duo was Jeffrey Chen ‘22 and Adam Tzeng ‘22 who also pulled out an 8-6 win. Sadly, the last pair of Tyler Ng ‘19 and Colt Tegtmeier ‘22 fell to Tufts after a close match, 7-8.

The success only continued for the men in the singles action. Aizenberg ‘20 earned another victory after his No.1 win of 3-6, 2-6. Joining him were Coramutla at No. 2, Tzeng at No. 3, Nikhil Das ‘21 at No. 4, Chen at No. 5, and Rajan Vohra ’21 at No. 6 after three sets.

Over on the women’s side, it was a very close match but the Judges just couldn’t close it out.  Doubles partners Sophia He ‘19 and Ana Hatfield started off strong with Brandeis’ first win after an 8-1 performance over MIT. The streak continued with Lauren Bertsch’s ’21 and Olivia Leavitt’s ‘19 performance that led them to the 8-6 victory as well. Unfortunately, Keren Khromchenko ‘19 and Diana Dehterevich ’20 fell to the Engineers at No. 2 at a score of 8-4. However, Brandeis still remained in the lead.

On the singles side, Khromchenko was the first Judge to roll past an opponent, earning the 6-3, 6-1 win at No. 3. Bertsch joined her after beating her opponent  6-2, 6-2. However, this wouldn’t be enough for the Judges to take home the win as Leavitt, He and Michele Lehat ‘19 all fell to MIT in their matches.

Currently ranked No. 18, the women fell to 3-3 but will return to action on the road against Middlebury on Saturday morning. After this weekend, the No. 10 ranked men’s team improved to 6-1. Watch them back in action on Friday night versus Rensselaer at 6 p.m.
