The men’s tennis team had a successful showing at the Brown Invitational, which was held over the weekend. The team took four of six doubles matches and six of eleven singles matches across both days of play at the Pizzitola Sports Center. The Bears hosted players from Boston University, Fairfield University and Quinnipiac University.  

“While there's always room for improvement, I'm proud of their performance,” wrote Head Coach Alex Kasarov in an email to The Herald. “Our players showed great determination and sportsmanship on the court. They executed their strategies well and displayed strong teamwork.”

Brown earned four combined doubles victories with wins by the duo of Tim Dzhurinskiy ’25 and Oliver Worth ’25, as well as Chun Lam ’24 and Ross Cornelissen ’24. Singles wins by Dzhurinskiy, Worth and Lam earned the Bears six singles match wins. 

Lam cited the team’s preparation as a key reason for their success. “We've been working super hard in practice on patterns of play in both singles and doubles, and it really was helpful this weekend, as everything I saw in the match happened in practice already,” Lam wrote in an email to The Herald.

Describing both doubles teams, Kasarov highlighted their “excellent chemistry on the court.”

“Winning four out of six matches in doubles is a testament to their hard work and dedication. Their success contributed significantly to our overall performance,” he added.   

Heading into Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regionals in New Haven this Friday, the team hopes to build on their success. “I feel confident and want to continue the good momentum I've had from the last two weekend tournaments,” Lam wrote. “This week of practice will be key for me to address small things from my last few matches and fine-tune my game.” 

Kasarov described the Bears’ success over the weekend as “a confidence booster” heading into ITA Regionals. “We should learn from our experiences at our home invite and carry those lessons with us to perform at our best in New Haven. … Our success in doubles this past weekend shows that we have the potential to be competitive in all aspects of the game,” he added.

The Bears are set to open play at ITA Regionals in New Haven beginning Friday, October 6.
