No. 6 Bruins Post 6-1 Victory Over Oregon
By: UCLA Athletics

April 2, 2005

LOS ANGELES - The No. 6-ranked UCLA men's tennis team remained perfect in Pac-10 play Saturday, registering a 6-1 victory over visiting Oregon at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. With the win, the Bruins improve to 19-2 overall and 4-0 in Pac-10 play. The loss drops the Ducks to 7-13 and 0-4 in the conference.

For the 17th time in 21 matches this season, the Bruins started the day by claiming the doubles point, taking decisive victories on all three courts.

In singles play, the Bruins took five of six matches in equally convincing fashion, with three players dropping no more than a single game. Freshman Mathieu Dehaine turned in the most impressive victory of the day, posting a 6-0, 6-0 win over Chris Liao at the No. 6 spot. Both Chris Lam and Alberto Francis were nearly as perfect, losing just one game in their matches with Manuel Kost and Vladimir Pino respectively.

Senior Luben Pampoulov and sophomore Philipp Gruendler also posted straight-set victories for the Bruins. Oregon's lone win on the afternoon came at the No. 1 position, where 22nd-ranked Sven Swinnen upset 10th-ranked Benjamin Kohlloeffel, 6-4, 6-4. It marked only the fifth loss of the season for Kohlloeffel, who is now 35-5 overall in singles play.

UCLA travels to the Bay Area next week for matches with Cal (April 8) and Stanford (April 9). The Bruins have just one more regular season home match remaining, hosting USC on April 15. If both UCLA and USC are able to go undefeated next weekend, the April 15 showdown will decide this year's Pac-10 champion.
