Ignat Advances to Finals at Columbia Classic

NEW YORK - Columbia men's tennis player Dragos Ignat will play for the 'A' singles draw title Sunday, having won a pair of matches Saturday at the Columbia Classic.

Ignat began the day with a quarterfinals matchup against Fordham's Srikar Alla. The freshman, playing in just his second collegiate tournament, defeated Alla in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2.

In the semifinals, Ignat faced a tough opponent in Fairleigh Dickinson's Arvis Berzins, but came away with the win, 7-6, 6-4. It will be an all-Dragos final, as Cornell's Dragos Dima will face Ignat Sunday.

The Columbia Classic concludes Sunday.
