This past Sunday at the Tose Family Tennis Center, Fordham Men’s Tennis found itself defeated 4-3 by a strong Navy side.

The Rams opened strong by winning two of the three doubles matches to take the doubles point. While junior Steven Duka and freshman Jofre Segarra dropped third doubles to Cameron Kirkpatrick and Sam Vagner 6-0, Fordham already had the first two doubles in the bag after a 6-2 win by sophomore Max Green and junior Finn Kemper over Jack Dabek and Andrew Hicks. In addition, Fordham got a 6-4 victory from sophomore Lutwin de Macar and junior Fabian Hansch Mauritzson over Matthew Lee and Conners O’Brien.

There were also some bright spots in singles play for Fordham, as de Macar beat Peter Lohrbach 6-2, 6-3 and sophomore Alex Makatsaria beat Kirkpatrick 6-4, 6-4, but the rest of singles play was bleak for the Rams. Green dropped a battle with Derrick Thompson 6-3, 6-2, Mauritzson lost 6-0, 6-4 to Andrew Ton, Kemper was defeated in a close match with Greg Durham 6-1, 6(7)-7(9), 6-3 and junior Jeremy Chung lost to Vagner 6-4, 6-4.

Mauritzson said of the loss this weekend that the members of the team “have all been extremely good competitors,” but noted that “there are some things that we need to work on. We need to trust our game moving forward, and we will achieve that with more hard work.”

Saturday, March 9 will see the Rams back in action for their next match, playing host to Boston University at Life Time Athletic in Harrison, NY at 6:00 p.m.
