NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Harvard men's tennis team (15-8, 3-0 Ivy League) won its sixth straight dual match, and it's 18th in a row in the series against Yale (15-6, 1-2 Ivy League), earning a 4-2 win against the Bulldogs on Sunday.

Harvard rallied after dropping the doubles point for the first time in six matches, winning four of five singles matches at No. 2 (Kenny Tao), No. 4 (Brian Yeung), No. 5 (Andy Zhou), and No. 6 (Christopher Morrow) to clinch the match.

"Dave and I were so proud of how the team responded after dropping the doubles point," said associate head coach Andrew Rueb. "They went out and won five of six first sets in singles to tilt the momentum in our favor. And they just kept after it – winning four singles in convincing fashion to seal the deal."

All four singles wins for Harvard came by way of straight sets.

Tao had the clinching match, winning 6-4, 6-2 over Yale's Ziqi Wang in the No. 2 spot. Yeung won at No. 4 against Stefan Doehler, 6-4, 6-1. Zhou won, 6-1, 6-0 against Andrew Heller at No. 5, and Morrow earned a 6-2, 6-2 win against Fedor Andrienko at No. 6.
