Jan. 26, 2001
STANFORD, Calif. - The top-ranked Stanford University men's tennis team opened defense of its 2000 Pacific-10 Conference title with a 6-1 win over #63 Oregon on Friday afternoon in Eugene. The Cardinal improved to both 1-0 on the season and in the conference, while the Ducks fell to 1-2 and 0-1.
Defending NCAA single champion Alex Kim (Potomac, MD/Winston Churchill HS) saw his first action of the 2000-01 season and was victorious in both singles and doubles for the Cardinal. Kim knocked off the Ducks' Oded Tieg 6-3, 6-3 at No. 1 singles, and teamed up with 1999 NCAA Doubles Champion K.J. Hippensteel (Roanoke, VA/International Academy) to defeat Martin Pawlowski and David Becker 8-6 at No. 1 doubles.
In all, Stanford won three of its five singles matches in straight sets and swept all three doubles contests. The Cardinal is 15-0 against the Ducks dating back to 1967.
