Michigan's Evan King wins tennis titles at Harvard and more Sunday results

By Staff

Michigan tennis player Evan King won the singles title and was part of the winning doubles team at the Harvard Fall Chowder Invitational that concluded Sunday.

King, a senior ranked the No. 8 player in the ITA preseason rankings, teamed with Shaun Bernstein to win the doubles competition.

In singles play, King had straight-set victories over three ranked opponents at the three-day event.

"The nicest thing is (King) showed a lot of maturity; he is maturing slowly but surely,” Michigan coach Bruce Berque said. “The results were an indication of the work he's put in and the ability that he has. But I can't say it was a surprise. He has the chance to be one of the best players in college."

Michigan freshman Alex Petrone went 2-1 in his first collegiate tournament.

There was no team scoring at the event. (Complete results)
