Three Bruins Named to All-Pac-10 Teams

May 5, 2004

LOS ANGELES - For the third year in a row, UCLA men's tennis player Tobias Clemens was named a first-team All-Pac-10 selection, leading a list of three Bruins named to All-Pac-10 teams Wednesday. UCLA's Alberto Francis and Kris Kwinta were named Pac-10 Co-Doubles Team of the Year.

Clemens, a senior from Bonn, Germany, is currently ranked No. 7 in the nation with a 32-8 overall singles record. He has posted a 15-7 mark at the No. 1 singles position, playing in the top spot in every dual match this season. His 118 career singles victories rank No. 1 all-time at UCLA.

In addition to Clemens, UCLA's Chris Lam (2nd Team) and Luben Pampoulov earned All-Pac-10 honors Wednesday. It is the second such honor for Lam, a junior from Honololu, after being named an All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention selection a year ago. He is currently ranked No. 60 in the nation with a 31-14 overall record, reaching the main draw semifinals at the Pac-10 Championships two weeks ago. Pampoulov, a newcomer from Dornbirn, Austria, earned honorable mention honors despite playing in just six dual matches. He is ranked No. 67 nationally, anchoring the Bruins' No. 2 singles position. Pampoulov and teammate Philipp Gruendler captured the Pac-10 doubles title back on April 25.

Although Francis (McAllen, TX) and Kwinta (Poznan, Poland) didn't capture this year's Pac-10 title, they have been the most consistent team in the Pac-10 all season. The duo owns a 30-10 overall record, including a 16-7 mark in dual-match play. They are currently ranked No. 7 in the nation. Cal's Patrick Briaud and Balazs Veress were also named Co-Pac-10 Doubles Team of the Year.
