The Georgia men's tennis team improved to 3-0 on the season and qualified for the ITA National Team Indoor Championships by defeating the VPI Hokies Monday in Athens. It was a bit more competitive than the previous match against TCU, but the result was the same: 7-0.
After the doubles pairs of Sadio Doumba/Ignacio Taboada and Hernus Pieters/Nathan Pasha secured the first point with wins, the singles matches mostly were closely fought by the visiting team. Several sets were decided by tie-breakers, but the Dawgs emerged victorious in all six matches to take the team victory in a shutout.
The win means that Georgia will follow the women's team to the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in Charlottesville, Virginia. The women's event is 10-13 February, while the men will play 17-20 February. Before that trip, the men will play ETSU on 2/4, followed by William and Mary on 2/10 and Georgia Tech on 2/14, all in Athens. The women next play Florida International on Sunday, 2/5, also in Athens.
