Bruins Blank Anteaters, 7-0

Feb. 2, 2005

LOS ANGELES - In what seems to be a recurring theme with the UCLA men's tennis team this season, the second-ranked Bruins posted yet another shutout Wednesday, dispatching of UC Irvine, 7-0 at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Bruins, who move to 6-0 overall, have yet to surrender a point in any match this season. The Anteaters fall to 1-3 overall with the loss.

Alberto Francis and Kris Kwinta, ranked sixth nationally, set the tone for UCLA, as they surrendered just one game en route to an 8-1 win over Ryusuke Kashiwabara and Brian Morton at the No. 1 doubles position. The Bruins' other two teams quickly followed suit, as UCLA won the doubles point with victories on all three courts.

In singles play, Bruin sophomore Benjamin Kohlloeffel moved his record to 23-3 on the season (including fall play) with a 6-4, 6-0 victory over Morton at the No. 1 position. Kohlloeffel is the first UCLA player to register 20-plus singles wins this season.

UCLA freshman Jeremy Drean was next to finish back on court No. 6, posting a 6-4, 6-1 win over Mustafa Ulukan. The match was clinched at court No. 4, where Mathieu Dehaine defeated Peter Surapol, 6-3, 6-4. Surapol is the brother of current UCLA junior Chris Surapol, who is redshirting the season due to injury.

Other straight-set winners for UCLA on Wednesday were Kwinta (court No. 5) and Chris Lam (court No. 2). Francis split sets on court No. 3, but ended up defeating UCI's Victor Lamm, 6-2, 5-7, (10-6).

UCLA returns to action this Friday, hosting San Diego State at the LATC beginning at 1:30 p.m.
