Ducks Post 7-0 Win Over Seattle U
EUGENE, Ore. – Nearly two weeks since its last match, the Oregon men's tennis team got back to work Saturday with a 7-0 win over Seattle U in Eugene. The Ducks last played March 7 against Cal Poly. With the victory, Oregon improves to 11-2 this season ahead of Sunday's Pac-12 matchup with Utah.
How it Happened: For the 10th time in their 13 matches this year, the Ducks won the doubles point for the early 1-0 match lead over Seattle U (2-9). Brandon Lam and Luke Vandecasteele raced through their match—6-0—at No. 2 doubles followed by a win from Emmanuel Coste and Jesper Klöv-Nilsson in the No. 3 spot which clinched the opening point of the day.
Individually, Klöv-Nilsson was first off court with a dominant 6-0, 6-1 showing at No. 4 singles. Freshman Ryoma Matsushita extended the Ducks' lead to 3-0 with his victory, and Charlton secured the team win at No. 1 singles. Both Matsushita and Charlton won with 6-2, 6-2 score lines.
With his two wins Saturday, Charlton now has 96 total victories in his UO career. He now has a career singles record of 49-14 and a doubles mark of 47-15, good for a .768 combined winning percentage.
The Ducks completed the match sweep with wins from Luke Vandecasteele at No. 5, Emmanuel Coste at No. 2 and Quinn Vandecasteele at No. 3, sequentially. The sweep is Oregon's sixth of the year, and fifth with a 7-0 score; UO beat Cal Poly, 4-0, on March 7.
