Denver Ends Penn Invitational With Victory Over Yale

Sept. 17, 2017

Philadelphia – On the final day of the Penn Invitational, the University of Denver men’s tennis team put out a strong performance to takeout the Yale Bulldogs.

 The Pioneers struggled in doubles play against the Bulldogs as the lone DU win came from senior Jesse Ruder-Hook and freshman Pedro Fernandez Del Valle 6-3.

 However, in singles play Denver powered through Yale’s lineup earning victories in six of the eight matches.

“Overall, we improved a lot from day one,” said Pioneer head coach Ricardo Rubio. “We got off to a slow start in the doubles today and we rebounded very well in the singles, winning six out of the eight singles matches.

DU victories came from Fernandez 6-4, 6-7, 6-3 against Yale’s Andrew Heller, Wyatt Lovera 6-0, 6-3 over Stefan Doehler. Jorge Nunez picked up a 6-2, 6-4 dub, Sean Huynh won 6-3, 6-4 and freshman Aaron Diemer scored a three set victory 6-3, 4-6, 6-1. The final win came from Eric Morris who beat Fedor Andrienko 4-1 before the Bulldog retired.

“It is great to see our freshman compete and we will continue to get much better throughout the course of the fall quarter,” added Rubio. “We have three events left and our job is to continue to develop them in practice and during competition.”




The Pioneers don’t compete again until Sept. 29 when the squad heads to Texas for the Rice Invitational.
