Men's Tennis Rolls Over Chicago State|
Oct. 5, 2002
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 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.
