Grinda Leads UCLA's All-Pac-10 Men's Tennis Selections

May 6, 1999

LOS ANGELES - Sophomore Jean-Noel Grinda (Nice, France) leads a list of three Bruins to receive All-Pac-10 Conference honors as voted by the conference coaches and announced by Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen today. The team captain, Grinda has helped lead UCLA to the No. 1 team ranking in the nation and a dual match record of 21-2 entering post-season action.

A returning All-American, who also received First Team All-Conference honors as a rookie, Grinda is currently listed No. 7 nationally in singles. The left- hander owns an 18-4 dual match record while playing in the No. 1 singles position all year and is 20-14 in overall singles matches this season. Playing doubles with junior Jong-Min Lee, Grinda climbed to No. 6 in the nation after winning the doubles title at Pac-10 Championships in Ojai on April 25. As a team Grinda and Lee have compiled a 23-6 overall record and are 16-4 in dual matches (7-2 at No. 1 and 9-2 at No. 2).

Earning Second Team All-Pac-10 honors for UCLA is senior Jason Cook (Woodland Hills, Calif.). The Bruins' only senior with dual match experience, Cook started the season in the No. 3 singles position and moved to the No. 2 slot in March. After taking the fall off, Cook has worked his way to a current ranking of No. 81 in the nation, owns an 18-9 overall singles record and stands 16-7 in dual matches (5-4 at No. 2 and 11-3 at No. 3). In doubles, he teams with junior Brandon Kramer to form the No. 7 ranked duo in the nation. This pair battled Grinda/Lee in the Pac-10 Championships final, before bowing in two tiebreakers. The team of Cook and Kramer stands 25-9 overall and 17-9 in duals (8-5 at No. 1 and 9-1 at No. 2).

Rookie Zack Fleishman (Play del Rey, Calif.) rounds out the Bruins' All-Pac- 10 selections, earning honorable mention. Although not currently ranked, Fleishman has been listed among the nation's best and started the dual-match season playing in the No. 2 position, before Cook moved ahead. He owns a 20-14 overall singles record and stands 14-8 in dual matches (1-0 at No. 1 , 8-6 at No. 2, 5-2 at No. 3).

Teams selected to compete in the NCAA Championships will be announced on Wed., May 5, while individual singles and doubles participants will be announced later in the week.
