MERION STATION, Pa. – The Saint Joseph’s men’s tennis team kicked off the 2013-14 season at home on Friday, hosting the opening matches of the 2013 Saint Joseph’s Men’s Tennis Invitational at the SJU Tennis Complex.

Junior Pierre Brondeau won his first-flight singles match before teaming up with freshman Kyle Chalmers to advance to the semifinals of the first doubles flight.  Brondeau defeated Brandon Goldstein of Lafayette, 4-6, 6-4, 12-10, in a top-flight singles match to kick off the event before transitioning to doubles play.

Later on, Brondeau and Chalmers earned a pair of 8-2 wins, dismissing Dale Fetterman and De’Sean Fennell of La Salle in the first round before topping Christopher Seitz and Bradley Noyes of Villanova in the quarterfinals.

In other singles action, sophomore Kevin Gates defeated Army’s Josh Cook in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, in the third flight.

Seniors Jose Sierra and Dan Barrus reached the first-flight semifinals as well, getting past Cook and Daniel Shutov, 8-3, before earning an 8-5 quarterfinal win over Alex Fioravante and Xabier Saavedra of Drexel.

Senior Paranjay Malhotra and sophomore Andres Urrea defeated Villanova’s Matt Colonnese and Max Levine, 8-5, in the first round, but ultimately fell 8-5 in the quarters to Adam Lawton and Troy Beneck of Delaware.

In the second flight, junior Jason Sisti and freshman Tristan Boustany took an 8-4 result over UD’s Blake Dantzler and Mike Furr before succumbing to Cameron Voigt and Joey Hatala of Army in a tiebreaker, 8-7 (7), in the quarters.
