Duke Claims Two ACC Weekly Tennis Honors

DURHAM – For the third time this season, Duke men’s tennis earned two of the ACC’s three weekly awards after securing both the player and doubles team of the week.
Redshirt senior Garrett Johns received solo praise for the third time this year as the conferences’ player of the week, while the Blue Devil tandem of Johns and sophomore Pedro Rodenas collected ACC Doubles Team of the Week nods for the second time.
Johns went 4-0 on the weekend with four ranked wins, playing at the No. 1 position in both singles and doubles. The Atlanta, Ga., native defeated Louisville’s No. 45 Etienne Donnet in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, before besting Notre Dame’s No. 29 Sebastian Dominko in a three-set come-from-behind victory, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4. Johns, who clinched Sunday’s victory over the Fighting Irish, is now 13-4 in dual action and 8-3 against nationally ranked opponents. The senior is ranked No. 21 nationally after jumping nine spots in the latest ITA rankings. 
In doubles action, he and Rodenas registered two top-15 wins last weekend, downing ninth-ranked Donnet and Natan Rodrigues on Friday, 7-5, to clinch the doubles point against Louisville, before handing 13th-ranked Sebastian Dominko and Jean March Malkowski a 6-3 defeat on Sunday against Notre Dame. The then-No. 6 ranked pair has won six straight doubles matches and are 8-2 against nationally ranked opponents. On the season, the duo holds a 14-3 overall record, including a 7-1 mark in ACC play. Johns and Rodenas are now ranked No. 4 in the latest ITA rankings.

The Blue Devils close out their regular season home slate hosting North Carolina on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Ambler Tennis Stadium. Duke will honor five Blue Devils prior to the match for Senior Day.
