No. 8 Men's Tennis Falls to No. 1 Stanford 7-0
April 3, 1998
STANFORD, CA - The number one ranked Stanford men's tennis team defeated Pac-10 rivals UCLA, 7-0, today at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium. Stanford improved to a perfect 17-0 overall and 6-0 in the Pac-10, while UCLA is now 12-4 overall and 5-2 in the conference. Stanford has now won 28 consecutive dual matches and has still lost only one single dual match all season.
Due to the threat of rain, the teams played singles first, with the Cardinal sweeping five matches in under two hours. The number six singles match between Stanford's Alex Kim and UCLA's Jason Cook was tied at 6-6 in the second set when it began to rain. After a 30-minute rain delay, Cook rebounded to win the second set. Kim was able to pull out the match with a 6-3 decision in the third set. The teams only played two of three doubles matches, with Stanford winning both.
Stanford's home series continues tomorrow when the Cardinal faces No. 9 USC at noon at the Taube Family Tennis Stadium.
