Abid Advances to Quarterfinals at Sherwood Collegiate Cup

Jan. 12, 2007

The UCLA men's and women's tennis teams were both in action on Friday playing in three West Coast tournaments prior to the start of dual-match play next week.

The UCLA men are competing this weekend at the Sherwood Collegiate Cup in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Sophomore Haythem Abid was the only Bruin to advance to Saturday's quarterfinals in singles by winning both of his matches on Friday. He began the day with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Stanford's Kevin Kaiser. He followed that up with a 6-2, 6-2 decision over USC's Gary Sacks. Mathieu Dehaine and Jeremy Drean each won a round of singles before falling in the second round. Drean defeated USC's Chong Wang in the first round, while Dehaine downed Stanford's Blake Muller. Unfortunately for UCLA, five Bruin players fell in first-round singles play on Friday, as top-seeded Benjamin Kohlloeffel, Philipp Gruendler, Mike Gurman, Michael Look and Andrew Eklov all lost. The biggest story was Kohlloeffel, who was upset by Stanford freshman Richard Wire, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.

On the women's side, near freezing temperatures in Las Vegas halted play at the Freeman Memorial Championships at UNLV. Only one round of doubles was played, as UCLA's Ashley Joelson and Alex McGoodwin downed Alison Silverio and Tarryn Rudman of Georgia Tech 8-6. Anna-Viktoria Lind and Stephanie Wetmore lost to top-seeded Roxanne Clarke/Kady Pooler, 8-6.

At the National Collegiate Tennis Classic in Palm Springs, Calif., Tracy Lin, Yasmin Schnack and Riza Zalameda are all still alive in singles play. Complete results were unavailable.
