    Chicago, Ill. - University of Illinois at Chicago men's tennis coach Hans Neufeld has been smiling a lot lately.

    It may be because his team is showing early on this season that it is a squad to be reckoned with.

    On Saturday morning at Flames Courts, UIC dominated Chicago State, 6-1, showing why the Flames are thinking big this season.

    The Flames struck early winning the doubles point, as Ken Howrey and Amol Desai paired to win the No.1 match, while James Wonneberg and Pat Zufan teamed up to win the No.2 match.

    The Flames won the No.3 doubles match by default.

    In singles play, Nick Bodmer fended off Anand Mukherjee, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2, in the No.1 slot, while Yeugen Ryeznik grabbed a point in the No.3 match beating Dejan Auramovic, 7-6, 3-6, 6-1, in a battle.

    Chicago State's lone point was won by Robert Gates in the No.2 match, as he beat Ken Howrey, 7-6, 3-6, 3-6.

    UIC's Desai and Zufan won the fourth and fifth singles match, respectively, as Chicago State did not field a sixth singles player giving the Flames the 6-1 outcome.

    The Flames will serve it up again at the ITA Regional in Madison, Wisconsin on October 24.
