Huskies Sweep Past Seattle

Feb 15, 2021

SEATTLE – After weather forced a longer than expected gap since their last match, the Husky men's tennis team was happy to get back on the Nordstrom Tennis Center courts today, starting off a busy week with a 7-0 win against Seattle U.
Washington took all six singles matches in straight sets to improve to 3-2 on the season in their first match since playing at Arkansas on Feb. 6.
"Very grateful to Seattle U with our schedule, losing out on the match with Oregon and being able to adjust this way, and they also had to hustle travel-wise from their last match," said Husky Head Coach Matt Anger. "So Seattle U was great to help us and we both benefit from getting the match in because at this point we usually have more tennis under our belts."
"A lot of good concentration from guys today," Anger said. "At third doubles we made some mistakes but at one and two we were efficient with what we were trying to do. I would say the same thing in the singles. Our young guys didn't get caught looking around and they kept the scoreboard churning, so we're just happy to get the match in and we'll have stuff to work on for Idaho on Friday."
The Dawgs had routine wins at the top two doubles spots to clinch the point to open the match. Jack Davis and Alexis Alvarez clinched it with a 6-3 win over Ogilvy and Cerbelli at the No. 1 spot. That followed a quick 6-0 win for Ewen Lumsden and Han-Chih Lin at No. 2 over Givens-Jensen and Monroy. Seattle had a win at No. 3, as Nikit Reddy and Kailuhia Lam teamed together for the first time but came up short against Krause and Worn.
In singles, Clement Chidekh kept his unblemished record intact with a 6-1, 6-2 win at the No. 1 spot over Eli Ogilvy. The next point came at six, where Alvarez got his first singles start of the season and beat Lars Schmassmann, 6-1, 6-2.
Freshman Han-Chih Lin clinched things at No. 3, beating Emilio Monroy, 6-0, 6-2, and then 65th-ranked Jack Davis followed with a 6-3, 6-3 win at the No. 2 match over Lucas Cerbelli. At No. 5, Jack Pulliam finished off Matt Krause in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4. The last match then saw Adam Torocsik close out Seattle's Julian Worn at No. 4 singles, 7-5, 7-5.
The Huskies will next host Idaho this Friday at 4 p.m. before heading down to take on Oregon on Sunday, Feb. 21, in a match that was rescheduled after weather this past weekend caused the postponement.
