No. 5 Virginia Takes 4-3 Victory over No. 4 UCLA at ITA Indoors

Feb. 14, 2009

CHICAGO - The No. 4 UCLA men's tennis team lost a close one at the ITA National Team Indoors on Saturday, falling 4-3 to No. 5 Virginia in a quarterfinal showdown at the Midtown Tennis Club.

Unlike its previous three matches, the Bruins won the doubles point Saturday, taking wins at court Nos. 2 and 3. The point was clinched at the No. 3 spot when Michael Look and Nick Meister took an 8-5 win over Drew Courtney/Lee Singer.

Look and Meister carried the Bruins in singles as well, as the two players accounted for the team's two singles wins Saturday. Unfortunately, UCLA needed three singles wins to clinch the match.

With the score tied at 3-3, the dual match came down to court No. 2 and a showdown between UCLA's Matt Brooklyn and Virginia's Sanam Singh. Despite losing the first set, Singh came back for a 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 win to give the Cavaliers the 4-3 win.

UCLA rounds out competition at the ITA National Team Indoors on Sunday, facing top-ranked Ohio State in a consolation match at 4:30 p.m. (PST).
