Buffalo:
 
Bulls Upset Cornell in Thrilling 4-3 Decision
 
ITHACA, NY - The Buffalo men's tennis team opened the Spring season in a big way Sunday afternoon, upsetting nationally ranked Cornell 4-3. After winning the critical doubles point, the team was able to split the six singles matches to earn the win. Pablo Alvarez provided the clinching point at second singles. The Big Red were ranked 53rd in the nation in the Jan. 2 Top 75 rankings from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
 
The Big Red came into the day with 7-0 sweeps in the previous three meetings and a 24-0 record in the all-time series between the two, but Buffalo would strike first with a pair of wins in doubles play. After a quick win for the doubles team of Sebastian Ionescu and Alvarez, Cornell's 40th ranked doubles duo of Vrabel and Fleck would defeat UB. The duo of Sergio Arevallilo and Jonathan Hannestad would clinch the point after gutting out a 6-5 win at second doubles.
 
As singles play began, the Bulls would get a break after Cornell's Sam Fleck was forced to retired due to injury at first singles. He had taken the first set over David 6-3, but with David up 1-0 in the second set he would be unable to continue after an injury. Now down 2-0, Cornell would rally back with wins at sixth and fifth doubles to even it up at 2-2. Ionescu would put the Bulls on the brink with a straight-set 6-4, 6-2 win over Vrabel at third singles, setting up a dramatic finish. The Big Red edged out a three-set win at fourth singles to put all the pressure on Alvarez.
 
After a successful Fall season, Alvarez played with toughness in his match against Jason Luu. The Sophomore took the first set 6-2, but would drop the second 3-6. With all eyes on him, and the competition all tied at 3-3, he would find himself in a tiebreaker in the third set. In the deciding tiebreaker, the two athletes were tied up 3-3 before Alvarez would put it away with a 7-3 decision to clinch the deciding set 6-5 and give UB the historic win.
 
"I am so proud of this group right now. Win or lose we made it a goal to focus solely on how we competed, making sure we keep composure and swing for the fences," head coach Lee Nickell said. "The doubles point ended up being huge, and for Jonathan and Sergio to beat a team that made the finals of regionals is a huge step. Cornell has always been supportive by playing us, and I feel bad their number one player got injured. But from top to bottom we competed like champions and we are happy with the result."
 
The team now prepares to open the home season, hosting Cleveland State on Saturday, Feb. 1. The dual is scheduled to begin at 1 pm.

Drake came back at the start singles play. Zeljkovic vs. Goodman was the first singles match to finish, and that one ended in favor of Drake to even the score 1-1. Lagerlof and Amir each had a long set not go their way, as Lagerlof lost in the No. 1 by a 6-2, 6-5 (4) final and Amir lost in the No. 2 by a 6-5 (0), 6-2 final. 
 
With the team down 3-1, Cadieux was in the No. 3 for NIU, facing No. 123 Matt Frost. He disposed of the nationally ranked tennis player in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2 to get the Huskies back on the board. However, Lynch followed by dropping a close one in the No. 5, sealing defeat as Drake reached four team points. Formont closed the action with a back-and-forth battle in the No. 6, one that he eventually won 6-2, 1-6, 6-4.

Western Michigan:
 
Broncos Perfect in Wins over UIC, Chicago State
 
KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Western Michigan men's tennis team was absolutely perfect in its home doubleheader on Monday, as the Broncos defeated the Illinois-Chicago Flames and Chicago State Cougars each by identical 7-0 scores. With the wins, the Broncos improve to 3-1 on the season.
 
The Broncos did not drop a single match, singles or doubles, over the course of their day, and they also saw a truly balanced effort produce those wins; every single player on the roster produced a victory on Monday in either singles and doubles, and most players won in both.
 
WMU began the day with a 7-0 win against UIC, clinching the doubles point with wins by the duos of Nadin Indre and Stephen Payne in No. 1 singles as well as Ruben Greiner and Jimmy Beckwith in No. 3 singles, each by 6-1 scores. The final match of the doubles session proved to be the most exciting, as Andrew Cahn and Michael Treis rallied from a huge hole to catch and beat the Flames' Isaac Llovers and Eric Pontow 6-5 (4) in the No. 2 doubles match.
 
Indre earned the first win of the singles session for the Broncos as he worked quickly against UIC's Alexander Raa; Indre survived a first set tiebreaker with Raa before handily taking the second set 6-2. Matt Hamilton made quick qork of Nicolas Aguirre in the No. 6 singles to put the Broncos in position to clinch the match, and Treis followed shortly thereafter with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Lloveras in No. 4 singles.
 
The final three matches on the court were also won by Broncos, though their results were in question for much longer as all three went to third sets. Beckwith weathered a second-set comeback from Carl Hedstrom in No. 3 singles to win a third-set supertiebreaker 10-4, and Pablo Mora came back from a set down to Eric Pontow to win the No. 5 singles msatch 5-6 (5), 6-3, 1-0 (1). Cahn was the only player to go to a full third set against the Flames, beating Alan Reifer 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 in No. 2 singles.
 
WMU opened the nightcap against the Cougars in the same fashion as the match against the Flames, taking all three doubles matches to set the tone for the competition. Treis teamed with Marc Shideler in No. 2 doubles and got the ball rolling with a 6-1 win over Uros Pajic and Luis Ulloa, and Greiner and Beckwith clinched the point with a 6-2 win in No. 3 doubles. Indre and Payne closed the doubles session with a 6-3 win over Sergiu Muresan and Mario Noboa to keep the Broncos' perfect evening intact.
 
Hamilton earned his second singles win of the night to start the singles session, downing Ulloa 6-1, 6-0 in No. 5 singles to make it a 2-0 match lead for the Broncos. Treis earned his first career No. 2 singles win with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Julian Chavez, and freshman Zach Phillips clinched the match with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Rashley Yeremia in No. 6 singles. Mora took the No. 3 singles match against Pajic, Greiner came back from a 4-0 deficit in the first set against Muresan to win No. 1 singles 6-4, 6-1, and Payne closed out the night with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Noboa in No. 4 singles.
