IOWA CITY, Iowa - The Western Michigan men's tennis team staged a comeback against their Big Ten rival on Sunday afternoon, but fell just short as the Broncos lost to Iowa 4-3 in Iowa City. With the loss, the Broncos fall to 8-5 on the season.

Nadin Indre won his second No. 1 singles match in as many days, defeating Matt Hagan to improve to 10-2 in dual match singles in 2013. Pablo Mora and Andrew Cahn also earned singles wins on Sunday, but the Hawkeyes snuck by the Broncos with three singles wins on the day to clinch the victory.

Iowa earned the doubles point with victories in the Nos. 2 and 3 singles matches, but the Broncos prevented the doubles sweep with an impressive performance in the No. 1 doubles match. Indre and Ruben Greiner teamed up to get an impressive win over Michael Swank and Garret Dunn, winning 8-6 in the last match off the court.

Indre cruised to a victory in singles play later in the afternoon, downing Hagan in the No. 1 singles match thanks to an inspiring performance. Indre made quick work of Hagan, downing him 6-3, 6-2 for his second No. 1 singles performance of the weekend. Mora and Cahn also registered wins on Sunday, but each required three full sets to win. Mora came back from a set down against Michael Swank in the No. 5 singles match, but put together two solid sets at the end to win 3-6, 7-5, 6-3. Meanwhile, Cahn survived a second set loss to win a tight third set, coming back from a final set point to win 6-3, 1-6, 7-5 against Dominic Patrick in the No. 6 singles.
