The Yale Bulldogs will resume tournament play Saturday morning in New Haven, with doubles play beginning at 10:00 a.m. Saturday's results will be posted throughout the day at the bottom of this page.

The Elis saw success early on Friday as Dylan King and Michael Sun outclassed their opponents, cruising to an 8-3 victory. Meanwhile, Cody Lin and Alan Sou fought hard but eventually fell in an epic 9-7 battle. Although the Bulldogs put up a strong fight in singles play, many close matches fell the other way, with Sun being the bright spot of the day with a blazing 6-1, 6-1 win. However, these challenging matches will provide invaluable experience to a young Bulldog squad as they prepare for the spring season.
