PHILADELPHIA – The Drexel men’s tennis team returned to Saint Joseph’s University to compete in the final day of the Hawks’ Fall Invitational. Alan Jesudason highlighted Drexel’s performance with a win in the flight number two bracket.

Jesudason continued to show his dominance in the invitational on the third and final day. The freshman competed against the fourth-seeded Matt Kleiman of Lehigh in the finals match and defeated him in two sets. The win is Jesudason’s first tournament win of his collegiate career. The last time a Dragon won at the SJU Fall Invitational was in 2017.

Joining Jesudason in winning hardware was Matvey Radionov. The senior upended Justin Suarez of Villanova, 8-5, in the consolation bracket of flight number two. In the finals match, Radionov defeated his opponent from Lehigh, 8-2.

In doubles play, the duo of Djordje Janackovic and Juan Manuel Sanchez marched to a commanding victory over their opponents from Lehigh, 6-1, in the finals match of flight number two.

The Dragons will now turn their attention towards the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s Regional tournament on October 14. The six-day tournament will be held on Penn’s campus and will feature the region’s top talent.
