The University of Oregon men's tennis team captured a convincing win against the Idaho Vandels in Moscow, Idaho, 6-1.
In doubles action, Oregon swept Idaho in all three matches, beginning with No. 1 doubles where senior David Becker and Martin Pawlowski defeated the Vandals' Amod Wakalkar and Brad Lum-Tucker, 8-4. At the number two position, the Ducks' Jason Menke and Buck Mink defeated Idaho's Eddie Brisbois and Stephen DeSilva, 8-3, while fellow Oregon duo Oded Teig and Chris King topped the Vandals' Chris Faulman and Brock Berry, 8-1.
In singles play, Oregon's Oded Teig had a straight-set victory over the Vandals' Eddie Brisbois, 6-3, 6-1, while the Ducks' Martin Pawlowski defeated Amod Wakalkar, 7-5, 6-3, in the number two position. The Ducks' David Becker battled three sets against Idaho's Brad Lum-Tucker (2-6, 6-4, 6-3) to cap Oregon's victory over the Vandals. Also scoring points for the Ducks were Jason Menke, with a win over Idaho's Fubian Bummett (6-1, 6-2), and the Ducks' Chris King, who defeated the Vandals' Chris Faulman (6-3, 6-3).
'I thought we played pretty well for the most part,' said Oregon head men's tennis coach Chris Russell. 'This win is good for us in order to gain some momentum heading into next week's match because we have a couple of tough ones coming up.'
