Jan. 30, 2005
MONTCLAIR, VA - The George Washington University men's tennis team fell to American, 5-2, on Saturday, Jan. 29, despite taking an early 1-0 lead in the contest at the Montclair Country Club. Senior Jake Jopling (Wexford, PA) continued his strong play for the Colonials recording his second straight win at No. 1 singles, and third overall, with a tough three-set triumph.
The Colonials took an early 1-0 advantage in the contest as they swept all three doubles matches. At No. 1, Jopling and freshman Mustafa Gencsoy (Istanbul, Turkey) defeated Juan Jaysingh and Nicolas Frayssinoux, 9-8 (7-5), while freshman Sam Salyer (Minneapolis, MN) and sophomore Gordon Daniels (Hilton Head, SC) earned a 9-8 (7-5) win over Juancarlo Vazquez and Jason Harris at the No. 2 position. The tandem of senior Daniel Raisbeck (Bogota, Colombia) and sophomore Daniel Balke (Portage, MI) also were victorious at No. 3.
In singles play, Jopling earned a hard-fought three-set win over AU's Vazquez, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, for GW's second point of the match. Jopling fought back from a break down in the decisive set to improve his singles record to 3-1 in dual-match contests.
