The men's tennis split their two matches on A-10 opening weekend. After falling to Dayton 6-1, the Dukes rebounded with a hard-fought 4-3 victory over George Mason

HOW IT HAPPENED
Against the Flyers, Chris Corrao won the Dukes only point with a 7-5, 6-4 win at #3 singles.

On Sunday, George Mason came to town. Duquesne opened the match with a dominating performance at #1 and #2 doubles both the #1 team of Adam Blasinsky and Tim Kane and the #2 team of Dominic Lea and Andrew Ong winning 6-1. Corrao and Jared Isaacs also won at #3 7-6.

Blasinsky's straight set win at #1 singles put the Dukes up 2-0. Mason won #2 singles. Drew Akins took #3 singles, which meant the Dukes need just one more win to clinch the match. But Mason won at #4 and #6. It was down to Isaacs at #4, who split the first two sets. But he came out on top in the 3rd set 6-3 to give Duquesne the 4-3 victory.
