Men's Tennis Opens Dual Match Season Vs. Detroit
Detroit Titans (0-0) at Western Michigan Broncos (0-0)
Friday, January 10 // 1 p.m.
Kalamazoo, Mich. // West Hills Athletic Club
Broncos Lead Series 28-1
This will be the 30th meeting between the Broncos and the Titans, with WMU holding a dominant 28-1 edge over Detroit in the all-time series. The Broncos defeated Detroit in last year’s season opener as well, taking five of six singles matches and sweeping the doubles session for the win. Nadin Indre, Ruben Greiner, Pablo Mora, and Andrew Cahn all earned singles wins, while Stephen Payne and Marc Shideler also contributed to doubles victories.
The Broncos enter the 2014 dual match season having lost just two players from last year’s singles line-up, meaning that the core of the team’s 10th NCAA Tournament team remains intact. Western Michigan has won 10 MAC Tournament titles since the conference earned an automatic bid to the Big Dance in the 1999 season, more than any other MAC program in that span.
FUN WITH NUMBERS
Western Michigan enters the season with 991 dual match victories in its illustrious history, and will look to the 1,000-win mark before the start of conference play.
In addition, head coach Dave Morin currently has 295 career victories at WMU, needing just five more to reach 300 wins with the Broncos.
