Men's Tennis Defeats MVSU in Spring Opener

MATCH 1 BOXSCORE | MATCH 2 BOXSCORE

MEMPHIS, Tenn. --- The Tennessee State men's tennis team opened the season Saturday with a doubleheader sweep of Mississippi Valley State at Whitehaven Tennis Center. 

The Tigers (2-0) went uncontested against MVSU (0-2) winning the doubles point in both matches and allowing the Devils to take only two games in singles play.

The newcomer Stefan Koruga, who arrived on campus just last week from Novi Sad, Serbia notched his first four wins as a Tiger - two in doubles alongside veteran Shashank Nautiyal, and two singles matchups at No. 3.
