This past weekend, Fordham’s men’s collegiate tennis team had one sole match to play. This match took place on Sunday, April 15, against St. Francis College Brooklyn at Fordham’s home courts. The Rams swept the Terriers, taking all six singles points and the doubles points for good measure, giving them a sweep.

Fordham won two out of the three doubles matches. The first doubles match was dropped by freshman Lutwin de Macar and sophomore Fabian Mauritzson against their opponents Javier Navarro and Pablo Blasco-Torres, 3-6. The next two doubles teams redeemed this loss with two wins. In the second doubles position, sophomores Finn Kemper and Jeremy Chung won their match 6-4 against Guillermo Artiz and Daniel Blasco. Sophomore Allen Thornes and freshman Max Green grabbed the third doubles match with a score of 6-0 against Tim Cecere and Josh Halperin, scoring Fordham the doubles point.

The singles matches all went to Fordham. De Macar had a long but triumphant match in the first singles position with a score of 4-6, 6-4, 10-5. Green took the second singles match against Guillermo Artiz with a score of 6-2, 6-0. Following this win, Mauritzson won his third singles match 6-1, 6-2 against Pablo Blasco-Torres. Both Kemper, who played fourth singles, and freshman Alex Makatsaria, who played fifth singles, won their matches 6-1, 6-3, against Stefan Gmijovic and Daniel Blasco, repsectively. Finally, Chung claimed the sixth singles match against Michael Sparacino with a score of 6-1, 6-0.

With the success in their sole match of the weekend are moving forward to win their upcoming matches.

The Rams will be back in action Sunday, April 22 against Baruch College at Fordham’s Hawthorn/Rooney Tennis Courts.
