Men's Tennis To Participate In The Sherwood Cup
Jan. 14, 2009
STANFORD, Calif. - The No. 12 Stanford men's tennis team will begin spring action this coming weekend as it will head to Thousand Oaks, Calif. for the annual Sherwood Cup. Eight players are slated to suit up for the Cardinal in both single and doubles competition beginning on Friday, Jan. 16.
Draws for the tournament have yet to be completed, but Stanford plans on entering four tandems in doubles competition and all eight players in the singles table.
As of 1 p.m. Wednesday, the doubles teams are as follows: Matt Bruch-Ryan Thacher; Alex Clayton-Bradley Klahn, Ted Kelly-Greg Hirshman; Richard Wire-Blake Muller.
The Cardinal boasts three ranked singles players in No. 16 Klahn, No. 33 Clayton, and No. 62 Wire.
At last year's Sherwood Cup, the duo of Kelly and Muller advanced to the doubles final, but ultimately suffered a loss in the final to Baylor's Atilla Bucko and Denes Lukacs, 9-7.
Upon completion of the Sherwood Cup, Stanford will head back to The Farm for a set of dual matches against Saint Mary's on Jan. 23 and Sacramento State on Jan. 27.
