Juan Carlos Rebaza Advances to Semifinal Round of Pac-10 Championship

April 27, 2007

OJAI, Calif. - Day two saw a huge win for the Sun Devil Men's Tennis program as Juan Carlos Rebaza rattled off a straight sets win in the Singles Championship quarterfinal round to advance to tomorrow's semifinal round. The doubles duo of Wes Miller and Matt Brooklyn also made it through to semifinals, grabbing two wins in the opening rounds of doubles Saturday.


Doubles started the day off with Wes Miller and Matt Brooklyn coming out strong in the first round with a 8-5 win over Washington's Fischer/Ricks duo to advance to the semifinal round where they were slated to face Oregon's Gallardo and Verdasco. The match went down to the wire, going into a tiebreak where the Sun Devils finally triumphed with a 9-8(4) win.


In singles action, it was all Juan Carlos Rebaza as he set to take on Dejan Cvetkovic of USC. Rebaza proved to be way too much for Cvetkovic as he beat the Trojan in straight sets, 6-3, 7-6(4), to advance to the semifinal round. Matt Brooklyn also battled his way to the quarterfinal round, only to fall to Cal's Pierre Mouillon in a tough three set loss.


Play continues in the Pac-10 Championships tomorrow with the semifinal rounds of both singles and doubles play.
