Men's Tennis Weekly Report - Week 1


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference men's tennis season is fully underway this spring.

To kick off the 2019 campaign, Earlham College and Manchester University sit at the top of the leaderboard with a .500 winning percentage.

Earlham's Aitor Zerdilas-Herrera posted a 6-1 singles record to start the spring season, including a 4-1 mark at No. 1 singles and a 2-0 record at No. 2 singles. Five of the freshman's six singles wins were by straight sets, and his lone victory requiring a super-tiebreak was against in-state rival DePauw University. In doubles play, Zerdilas-Herrera went 7-0 with a 2-0 mark at No. 2 doubles and a 5-0 mark at No. 3 doubles. 

Fightin' Engineer Ian Landwehr has a 6-3 record at No. 1 singles against the toughest schedule in the history of Rose-Hulman tennis. The junior's 6-3 spring record includes a 2-0 mark against NCAA Division II players, a 0-1 mark against NCAA Division I players, and a 1-2 record against the top ranked players from NCAA Division III top 25 teams.

Landwehr is 4-2 against NCAA Division III foes, with losses only to the top player on #9 Washington (Mo.) and on #18 Case Western Reserve.
