Jan. 21, 2005

Results

LOS ANGELES - The second-ranked UCLA men's tennis team posted its second shutout in a row Friday, registering a 7-0 decision over Pacific in a non-conference showdown at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins, who defeated NAIA power Azusa Pacific on Thursday, improve to 2-0 on the year. The Tigers fall to 0-1 with the loss.

Similar to Thursday, it was the Bruins' Nos. 2 and 3 doubles teams that came away with the victories to secure the doubles point. First to finish was court No. 3, where freshman Mathieu Dehaine and senior Chris Lam posted an 8-1 victory over Niclas Otte/Jorgen Vestli. UCLA's Benjamin Kohlloeffel and Luben Pampoulov clinched the doubles point with an 8-1 victory of their own at court No. 2. Pacific managed to post a win at the No. 1 position after the doubles point had already been decided.

Singles play was all UCLA, as the Bruins recorded straight-set wins on every court. Senior Alberto Francis dropped just two games en route to a 6-1, 6-1 decision over Vestli at court No. 4. Eighth-ranked Kohlloeffel was equally impressive, posting a 6-0, 6-2 win over Vladimir Zdravkovic at the No. 2 position.

The closest singles match of the day came at the No. 1 position, where Pampoulov, ranked No. 14 nationally, was extended to a second-set tiebreaker in his match with 75th-ranked Arnar Sigurdsson. Pampoulov ended up winning the match 6-2, 7-6(5).

The Bruins also received singles victories from Lam (court No. 3), Kris Kwinta (court No. 5) and Dehaine (court No. 6).

UCLA has a busy schedule ahead, hosting three matches at the LATC next week beginning with UNLV on Jan. 25. The Bruins also face BYU on Jan. 26 and UC Irvine on Jan. 28.
