The UConn men’s tennis team will kick off the season this weekend at the Fairfield Doubles Invitational.
The Huskies are led by senior Wei Lin, who has been a solid competitor in both singles and doubles since his freshman year, obtaining a career record of 37-32 in singles and 43-38 in doubles. Junior captain Ryan Carr, an extremely mature player mentally who has had a significant impact on the team, has an overall singles record of 31-26. Also part of the team are sophomores Joshua Palmer and Jacob Spreyer, who obtained a 22-13 record in doubles during their freshman year, and Peter Surovic of the Czech Republic, who went 6-10 in singles and 10-13 in doubles during his freshman year. Additionally, four incoming freshmen and one sophomore will look to contribute to the Huskies this year.
“We’re really looking to improve our match experience this off-season. With four new talented freshmen and one sophomore, we are a very young but extremely deep team,” said Palmer.
The Huskies will open their season this weekend in Fairfield in a doubles invitational. After the competition in Fairfield, the Huskies will take part in next weekend’s Brown University Invitational in Providence, R.I. They will host Hartford on Sept. 19 and Marist on Sept. 26. The Huskies will then compete in the UConn Invitational in Storrs, Sept. 28-30.
