LOS ANGELES - The fourth-ranked UCLA men's tennis team improved its record to 18-2 overall and 4-0 in Pac-10 play, defeating Oregon, 6-1 at UCLA's Los Angeles Tennis Center Friday. With the loss, the Ducks fall to 8-10 overall and 0-5 in conference action.

UCLA won the doubles point and then claimed five of six singles matches. Fifth-ranked Tobias Clemens registered a straight-set victory over Manuel Kost at the No. 1 position, and was joined by Lassi Ketola and Alberto Francis, who also won in straight sets.
