April 6, 2012
Washington, D.C. - The Stony Brook's men's tennis team split the six singles matches but the Georgetown Hoyas won the doubles point and that proved to be the difference in the Hoyas 4-3 win over the Seawolves on Thursday afternoon.
Georgetown opened the match by winning all three doubles matches to take a 1-0 lead. The Seawolves battled in singles play, winning three matches in three sets.
But the Hoyas won the other three singles matches in straight sets to earn the one-point victory. At No. 1 singles, sophomore Nikita Fomin (Moscow, Russia) rallied after dropping the first set as he improved to 8-1 at the top singles spot.
Senior Max Sztabholz (Paris, France) also rallied after dropping the first set to earn the victory at the No. 5 position. Junior Robert Forai (Novi Sad, Serbia) earned Stony Brook's other point, winning at No. 6 singles.
