Malibu, Calif. ?- Sunday’s overcast skies would not stay clear long enough for the Arizona-Pepperdine men’s tennis match to be completed in Malibu, Calif.
After a short rain delay, Pepperdine claimed the doubles point at the Ralphs-Straus Tennis Center. The individual matchs between No. 34 Arizona and No. 17 Pepperdine (5-1) were postponed due to rain. Arizona hopes to complete the match on a later date.
In doubles action, the No. 18 pair of senior Colin O'Grady and junior Roger Matalonga fell to 5-2 in dual match play, as they lost to the No. 26 duo of Scott Doerner and Pedro Rico, 8-4. Pepperdine secured another doubles point when junior Daniel Andrus and freshman Bruno Alcala fell to Jonas Berg and Ivor Lovrak, 8-5. To round out doubles competition, junior Tim Mullane and freshman Claudio Christen defeated Kevin Borzenski and Richard Johnson, 8-6.
The Wildcats will be back in action next Friday, Feb. 25, as they face cross-state rivals Arizona State at 1:30 p.m.
