PRINCETON -- For the first time in back-to-back seasons since 2000 and 2001, the Princeton men's tennis team has won its first three Ivy League matches, reaching that mark this season with a 4-3 win at Yale.

All three of Princeton's Ivy League victories this season have come by 4-3 scores, and Matt Siow had the honor of providing the clincher against the Bulldogs.

Princeton had to rally from losing the doubles point, doing so with singles wins from Matija Pecotic on court one, Dan Richardson on court five and Alex Faust on court six. That put Princeton ahead 3-2, and Yale stayed alive with a win at second singles before Siow completed a third-set sweep of opponent Erik Blumenkranz for Princeton's fourth team point.

The Tigers will look to keep the momentum going next weekend against Dartmouth Saturday and Harvard Sunday on campus. Both matches are scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. and will take place at the Lenz Tennis Center unless rain or chilly temperatures force the matches indoors to Jadwin Gym.
