FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. — The Dartmouth men's tennis team kicked off their fall season over the weekend with a trip to Flushing Meadows, N.Y., for the 2012 USTA National Tennis Center Collegiate Invitational at the US Open.

Andres Isaza (3-1) highlighted the action, reaching the Flight G finals with victories over Mario Huljev (SFU), Alex DeRinzo and Billy Bishop (Marist). He was finally knocked off by Princeton's Michael Lin, by scores of 6-3 and 6-2 in the final round. Three other Dartmouth players - Chris Kipouras, Erik Nordahl and Brendan Tannenbaum - went 3-1 on the weekend.

In doubles action, the combination of Kipouras and Sam Todd fared best, winning their first two matches before falling to FDU's Grichenko/Skvarka in the third round, 8-4.

As a team, Dartmouth was 18-12 overall in singles action, including an impressive 13-2 mark on Saturday and Sunday. The Big Green posted a combined doubles record of 7-5 overall.

Dartmouth returns to the court the weekend of Friday, Oct. 5, when they host the Dartmouth Shootout in Hanover.
