A trio of Govs earned singles wins in a battle between the 2013 OVC regular season and tournament champions. Junior Aleksas Tverijonas was thorough in his demolition of Vasily Eremeev at No. 3 singles, with the Lithuanian romping in a 6-0, 6-1 win.

Junior Iago Seffrin made it three straight singles victories after an auspicious 0-8 start, defeating Gagan Jain, 6-2, 7-5 in the No. 4 singles slot.

Freshman Manuel Montenegro’s continued progression has to be encouraging for head coach Ross Brown. Montenegro defeated Gonzalo Munoz 6-0, 6-3 at No. 6 singles; the Spaniard has now won four of his last six matches.

Unfortunately the Govs struggles with doubles continued. Dating back to March 1st, the Govs have dropped four of five at the doubles point, with Aremeev and Artem Tarasov defeating Seffrin and junior Dimitar Ristovski (8-6) at No. 2. Montenegro and freshman James Mitchell fell to Jain and Alvaro Cintas (8-3) at No. 3.
