This weekend is the last chance for the Cornell men’s tennis team to strut its stuff at home in the year 2000, when it hosts the Cornell Fall Indoor Invitational at Reis Tennis Center, starting tonight.

Boston University, Stony Brook, Rutgers, American University, Kutztown, Farleigh-Dickinson, and St. Bonaventure will all be in town from the individual matches.

Head coach Barry Schoonmaker will be playing every member of the team this weekend.

“It’s a chance to let [our players] show what they can do; at the same we get to see and scout some of our opponents,” commented Schoonmaker, “it’s not the same intensity as a regular dual match, but I still think we should dominate these teams.”

The Fall Indoor will be the first chance for senior Mike Halperin to play at Cornell during the fall. The reigning Ivy Player of the Year, who went undefeated in Ivy League play last year, was unable to make the Fall Outdoor and Indoor in 1999 because of injuries.

Halperin will also play with his doubles partner from last year, junior co-captain Stefan Paulovic. Senior Greg Artzt will play alongside his doubles partner, junior Pat Hagan.
