Viktor Svensson Earns No. 1 Singles Victory at Navy Men's Tennis Invitational
Sophomore Defeats Georgetown's Top Player in Come-Back Win
Oct. 7, 2011
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Despite falling behind 2-6 in the first set of flight one singles action Friday afternoon, sophomore Viktor Svensson fought to earn a 6-3, 10-6 victory over Georgetown's Andrew Bruhn on the first day of the Navy Gold Invitational in Annapolis, Md.
"This win is a great boost for Viktor's confidence," said assistant coach Rodrigo Briceno, who coached the Colonials while head coach Greg Munoz returned home from the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla. "He got a great win against a very tough opponent and now has the opportunity to compete against some of the best players in the area this weekend."
Svensson teamed up with senior Richard Blumenfeld for flight one doubles play, but dropped the match, 8-4, to Georgetown's Bruhn and Charlie Caris.
Blumenfeld then matched up against Caris in flight two singles, but lost the first set 6-1 and had to retire the match due to a knee injury. Blumenfeld will not compete again this weekend.
Svensson returns to action on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 9 a.m. Results will be made available after completion of the match.
