No. 5 UCLA Downs No. 9 Stanford, 5-2

April 3, 2004

LOS ANGELES - The fifth-ranked UCLA men's tennis team completed its sweep of the Bay Area schools this weekend, defeating No. 9 Stanford, 5-2 Saturday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins, who defeated Cal on Friday, improve their overall record to 14-5. Stanford falls to 12-5 with the loss.

UCLA began the day by sweeping all three doubles matches to claim the one point awarded for doubles play.

Down 1-0 heading into singles play, Stanford quickly answered back when 23rd-ranked Sam Warburg upset fifth-ranked Tobias Clemens of UCLA, 6-1, 6-1 at the No. 1 position.

The Bruins took control of the match after that, winning the next three matches to clinch the victory. Next to finish was court No. 6, where Bruin freshman Philipp Gruendler defeated Chris Rasmussen, 6-2, 6-2. That was followed by court No. 3, where junior Chris Lam battled back to post a 1-6, 6-2, 6-1 decision over Phil Sheng.

The match was clinched at court No. 4, where UCLA's Luben Pampoulov defeated KC Corkery, 6-1, 7-6(5).

Both teams split the remaining two matches. Stanford picked up its second win of the day when James Wan defeated Kris Kwinta, 6-1, 2-6, 6-1 at the No. 4 spot. UCLA's Alberto Francis capped things off for UCLA, defeating Carter Morris, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 at the No. 5 position.

UCLA returns to action next week, traveling to Oregon on Apr. 9 and to Washington on Apr. 10.
