Feb. 17, 2007
BERKELEY - The California men's tennis team snapped its four-match losing streak with a 7-0 shut out over UC Santa Barbara, Saturday afternoon at the Berkeley Tennis Club. The Golden Bears got back to a record of .500 (4-4) with the win.
Cal won all six singles matches in straight sets. The closest a Gaucho came to winning a set was on the sixth court. Sophomore Geoff Chizever was in a battle against UCSB's Nigel Barton in the first set, but Chizever won the set and the match, 7-5, 6-3.
Chizever was one of three Bears to win in singles and doubles. In doubles, Chizever and sophomore Eoin Heavey beat Bijan Hejazi and Max Taylor, 8-4. Heavey also beat Taylor in singles, 6-0, 6-3. The other Cal player to win two matches was senior Tyler Browne. Browne and fellow senior John Pettit beat Anders Dalskov and Grant Robertson, 8-6. Browne faced Dalskov later in singles on court two and Browne once again came away with the victory, 6-2. 6-4.
Cal stays in Berkeley but returns to the Hellman Tennis Center next weekend. The next match for the Bears is Friday, Feb. 23 when they host Arizona at 1:30 p.m. The next day, Cal goes up against Arizona State at 12:00 p.m.
