Tennis history was made on March 26, 2019. Not only did your Trinity Tennis Rocks defeat St. X for the third time in four years, the 4-1 final score was, according to head coach Chris Mather, St. X’s greatest margin of defeat in 33 years. Led by the powerhouse Chou Brothers, Trinity got off to an early lead with #1 singles player Brandon Chou polishing off his opponent 6-1, 6-0 while #2 Michael Chou did not allow a single game to his opponent, winning easily at 6-0, 6-0. The #1 Doubles team of Justin Lee and Freshman sensation Ben Rueff came out victorious in a tough 6-3, 6-4 battle. Finally, #2 Doubles players Akash Patil-Terhune and Jacob Bir outlasted their opponents 6-4, 6-4 with the match point coming on a textbook-perfect lob from Bir, reminiscent of Rafael Nadal. Next up for the Rocks is a match on the 28th against a very tough duPont Manual team.
