Costa Mesa, Calif. - UCLA dominated play at the recently completed Costa Mesa Pro Tennis Classic, as players with Bruin ties took home both the singles and doubles titles at the Costa Mesa Tennis Center on Sunday.

Former player Haythem Abid, who played at UCLA from 2006-10, won five straight matches in the singles draw to take home the title, downing Ernesto Escobedo, 6-1, 4-6, 7-5 in Sunday's final. Abid, from Tunisia, was unseeded in the 32-player draw. He is currently ranked No. 748 in the ATP World Tour rankings.

In the men's doubles draw, Bruin junior Marcos Giron teamed with incoming freshman Mackenzie McDonald to win the championship, beating the South African duo of Keith-Patrick Crowley and Matt Fawcett, 6-3, 6-2. Giron and McDonald upset top-seeded Carsten Ball and Daniel Garza in the quarterfinals, 7-5, 3-6, (12-10).

A total of seven former or current UCLA players competed in Costa Mesa last week, as Abid, Giron and McDonald were joined in the draws by Nick Meister, Clay Thompson, Dennis Mkrtchian and Dennis Novikov.
