CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson men’s tennis team will play host to Navy and Dartmouth on Saturday in a doubleheader at the Hoke Sloan Tennis center located on the university’s campus. In case of inclement weather, the matches will be moved to the indoor tennis center adjacent to the Hoke Sloan Tennis center and Historic Riggs Field.

The Tigers will play Navy at 9:00 a.m. and Dartmouth at 2:30 p.m. Clemson is now 4-4 on the year, and Navy is 8-4 this season. The midshipmen are coming off a 7-0 loss to North Carolina on Thursday. Dartmouth is now 2-5 on the year and will play at Furman on Friday (February 27) evening.

This will be the fifth meeting between Clemson and Navy on the tennis courts. Clemson leads the overall series 4-0. This will also be the sixth meeting between the Tigers and Dartmouth. Clemson leads the overall series 5-0. Ironically, both series began in the 1965 season as the Tigers first played the two teams just five days apart that year.

Clemson will continue its home stand as the Tigers will play its first ACC home match of the season on Wednesday, March 4 as Georgia Tech comes to the Hoke Sloan Tennis center for a 2:30 p.m. meeting.

Statistically, Clemson is led by Carlos Alvarez as he has a 5-3 record in dual matches. He has posted a 3-1 record at number one singles this season. In doubles, the team of Rok Bizjak and Gera Boryachinskiy has won five matches this season.
