Ojai, Calif. - The UCLA men's tennis team had two doubles teams win semifinal matches Saturday, guaranteeing the Bruins of a doubles title at the Pac-10 Championships at Ojai's Libbey Park.

Top-seeded Philipp Gruendler and Benjamin Kohlloeffel defeated Cal's Lennart Maack/Dean Wallace, 8-6 in the top half of the main draw Saturday. They will face teammates Mathieu Dehaine and Jeremy Drean, who advanced to the final when Stanford's KC Corkery/James Pade had to withdraw due to injury to Corkery. Whichever Bruin team comes out on top Sunday, it will mark UCLA's first Pac-10 doubles title since Gruendler and Luben Pampoulov claimed the crown in 2004.

Drean has a busy day Sunday, as he will also be playing in the finals of the Pac-10 Invitational singles draw. He advanced to the final with a 7-6(16), 6-7(5), 6-0 victory over Stanford's Phil Kao. He will take on another Stanford player, Blake Muller, in the final.

The Invitational singles final is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. The main draw doubles final will begin at 2:00 p.m.
