Oct. 10, 2002

LOS ANGELES - UCLA junior men's tennis player Tobias Clemens registered a straight-set victory Thursday in the first round of the Icy Hot/ITA Men's All-American Championships in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Clemens, who is seeded second in the 64-player singles draw, defeated Georgia's Nicolas Boeker, 6-3, 6-1. He will face Mississippi's Paul Ciorascu in Friday's second round.

Also in action Thursday was Bruin sophomore Chris Lam, who extended ninth-seeded Todd Widom of Miami to three sets before falling, 6-2, 6-7(5), 6-1.

The Icy Hot/ITA Men's All-American Championships is not only the largest single tournament of this season in collegiate tennis, with over 300 competitors, but also the first of three national championship events at the Division I level during the 2002-03 collegiate tennis season.

The Icy Hot/ITA Men's All-American Championships offer the first national singles and doubles titles of the season, and are followed by the Omni Hotels/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships in November and the season-ending NCAA Championships in May (the women's counterpart to the Icy Hot/ITA Men's All-American Championships, the Riviera Women's All-American Championships, is hosted by the Riviera Tennis Club in Pacific Palisades).
