Men's Tennis Dropped by No. 5 UCLA, 7-0

March 26, 2005

LOS ANGELES - The Arizona State University men's tennis team (6-9; 0-2 Pac-10) fell to fifth-ranked UCLA (17-2; 2-0 Pac-10), 7-0, Saturday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins, who played with four nationally-ranked singles players, swept the doubles and all six singles matches.

 

In double action, the Bruins started strong by taking all three doubles matches for the first point of the dual.

 

In singles play, UCLA kept the pressure on early to extend its lead to 4-0. The seventh-ranked singles player in the county, Luben Pampoulov, handed ASU's Jonathan Kinsella a 6-0, 6-1 defeat on court #2. Soon after on court #6 Mathieu Dehaine dropped Nick Hegarty in straight sets, 6-2, 6-0, while No 50 ranked Kris Kwinta added the fourth point and dual clincher on court #3 for the Bruins as he defeated No. 96 Christopher Biro, 6-1, 6-3.

 

ASU's Mike Beatty looked strong early on against No. 64 ranked Philipp Gruendler on court #5. Beatty won 6-0 in the first set, but Gruendler came back to win the second and third sets, 6-2 and 7-5. On court #1, Clint Letcher forced tenth-ranked Benjamin Kohlloeffe to a third set super-tiebreaker, but Kohlloeffe prevailed for UCLA's sixth point.

 

Up next, ASU returns back to Tempe to take on Stanford on Friday, April at 1:30 p.m.
