Kohlloeffel Repeats as Indoor Champion

Nov. 5, 2006

Columbus, Ohio - A day after fighting off two match points in the semifinals, UCLA men's tennis player Benjamin Kohlloeffel successfully defended his title at the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships on Sunday, becoming the first back-to-back champion at the event since 1995.

Kohlloeffel, the tournament's top seed, defeated hometown favorite Steve Moneke of Ohio State, 6-0, 6-4 in Sunday's championship match. He becomes the third player to defend his title at Indoors and first since Sargis Sargsian of Arizona State won it back in 1994 and '95. Trinity's Erick Iskersky also did it back in 1978 and '79.

Kohlloeffel became the first UCLA men's player to a title at the Indoors last year when he defeated Duke's Ludovic Walter, 7-5, 6-1 in the final. Today's victory gives him three national titles, as he also captured the NCAA Singles championship in May.

Kohlloeffel, who twice came within a point of falling in the semifinals to Oklahoma State's Ivan Puchkarov, posted his 100th career UCLA victory on Sunday. He currently owns a three-year record of 100-13.
