Miami Comes Up Short at No. 35 Georgia Tech

ATLANTA, Ga. – The University of Miami men’s tennis team (10-10, 2-7 ACC) dropped its match, 4-1, to No. 35 Georgia Tech (14-6, 4-4 ACC) on Saturday afternoon at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex.

The Yellow Jackets started doubles with a ranked win on court one, as the No. 48 duo of Marcus McDaniel and Keshav Chopra took the 7-5 win against No. 70 Antonio Prat and Martin Katz. Miami bounced back and claimed back-to-back courts to secure the doubles point.

Miami’s No. 64 ranked pair of Vladislav Melnic and Adrien Burdet grabbed court two, 6-4, over Andres Martin and Krish Arora, while Nacho Serra Sanchez and Yannik Rahman defeated Elisa Shokry and Robert Bauer, 7-5, on court three.

Despite taking the doubles point, the Hurricanes couldn’t keep the momentum going into singles. Georgia Tech’s Rohan Sachdev was first to finish, taking down Serra Sanchez 6-4, 6-2 on court six to tie it up. The Yellow Jackets then claimed the lead after a court-five win from Arora against Sam Baumgartner, 6-2, 6-4.

Antonio Prat fought hard at the top court, battling a top-20 opponent in No. 16 Andres Martin, but fell 6-3, 7-5 to help Georgia Tech extend the lead to 3-1. Clinching the win, Miami’s Adrien Burdet dropped court four, 6-1, 7-5, to Richard Biagiotti.

The Hurricanes return to the Neil Schiff Tennis Center on April 5 to face NC State.
