Bulldogs Come Close But Cannot Defeat No. 54 Virginia Tech

March 28, 2004

The Bulldogs played well against No. 54 Virginia Tech, but a number of close 3-set matches meant defeat for Yale, who fell 5-2 to the Hokies. Andrew Rosenfeld and Milosz Gudzowski were winners in their singles matches.

The Bulldogs lost all three doubles matches against the Hokies and dropped four of six singles contests. But Head Coach Alex Dorato noted that some of the matches were winnable.

"We certainly could have beaten them," Dorato said. "We lost 2 three-set matches, and we were in there with them."

Rosenfeld, playing at No. 2, cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 victory, while Gudzowski split the first two sets in his match and won the third 10- 6 in the super tiebreaker format to give Yale it's second win.

The Elis will play only Ivy opponents from here on out, beginning with a match against Princeton on April 9th. Yale's next home match is April 16th against Cornell.
