The Yale men's tennis team will look to hold its own amongst a tough pool of Ivy League teams this weekend, travelling to Hanover for the Dartmouth Invitational. Several Yale players will seek to build on a successful fall campaign, especially after a strong showing at the ITA Regional Championship last weekend.
Junior sensation Ryan Cheng has shown his resilience in matches throughout the fall and will certainly serve a major role for the team this spring. Look for him to continue his singles successes this weekend while also taking on the doubles draw with Yale star Dylan King. First year Michael Sun has shown himself to be a prodigy for the Bulldogs after a convincing victory last weekend against one of Penn's top singles players. Sun will likely pair in doubles with classmate Arnav Dhingra, who pushed the former top singles player for the University of Wisconsin to a third set in a jaw-dropping battle last weekend. The experienced sophomore Alan Sou will also make a return to the lineup this weekend, looking to further showcase the hard work he has been putting in alongside his teammates this fall.
