Durham, N.C. – Following the second day of the Duke Invitational in Durham, N.C., three Blue Devils have remained undefeated in singles action as Kiril Dimitrov, Reid Carleton and Aaron Carpenter all improved to 2-0 in the tournament.

Dimitrov, a junior from Sofia Bulgaria, gained sole possession of first place in the singles points standings as he defeated a ranked opponent for the second straight day. After splitting the first two sets Dimitrov and No. 55 Jason Jung of Michigan played a deciding third set with Dimitrov claiming the 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 victory.

Carleton saw his match come down to the wire in three sets. After he cruised to a 6-2 win in the first set, Carleton fell short in a tiebreaker 7-6 (5) in the second set to Michigan’s Mike Sroczynski. The third set would not disappoint the many fans in attendance as it came down to another tiebreaker with Carleton defeating Sroczynski 7-6 (3). With the win Carleton improves to 9-4 in his first collegiate season. 

Playing in one of the later matches, Carpenter made short work of his opponent, Michigan’s David Streeter. Carpenter, for the second straight day, won in straight sets 6-2, 6-2 to improve to 4-3 on the year in singles.

Duke’s Alex Stone played a tight match with Michigan’s Chris Madden. The two battled back-and-forth in a two-set match that last for two-and-a-half hours. The first set went to a tiebreaker with Stone edging out Madden 7-6 (8-6) to take the lead in the match. After falling behind in the second set, Stone fought his way back to close out the victory 7-5.

Three other Blue Devils lost in three sets on Sunday. Dylan Arnould battled back after losing his first set to Michigan’s Andrew Mazlin to force three but fell short 6-3, 2-6, 6-3. Christopher Price also came back in the second set and won a tiebreaker but also came shy of victory as George Navas claimed a 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3 win. Jared Pinsky was playing in his first collegiate singles match and won a first-set tiebreaker 7-6 (5), lost the second set 2-6 and then Scott Bruckmann won the super tiebreaker 1-0 (10-8) to take the match.

North Carolina’s doubles pairing of Clay Donato and Stefan Hardy are 2-0 in the tournament and have a two point lead over Michigan’s 23rd-ranked Jung and Sroczynski in the doubles point standings. Dimitrov heads into the final day of the tournament with a two point lead over Michigan’s Matko Maravic and a four point lead over his teammate Carleton.

The final day’s action is scheduled to begin tomorrow at 9 a.m. at the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center.
