TUCSON, Ariz. ?C The Arizona menˇ?s tennis team dropped its second match in as many days, losing to No. 38 California 4-3 at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center.

?

For the first time this season, the Cats just did not have it in doubles and were beaten on all three courts.

?

But Arizona would come out strong in singles play, knowing that play could turn around quickly.

?

And?it did?with No. 108 Claudio Christen, back on court one, defeating Eoin Heavey in straight sets; 6-4, 6-2.

?

Arizona then took a 2-1 lead when Andres Carrasco beat Pierre Mouillon; 6-1, 6-4.

?

California, as did Stanford the day before, hung tough by picking up key wins on courts five and six.

?

The Cats made it close with Bruno Alcala topping Pedro Zerbini on court four, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.

?

But California would clinch the match when No. 96 Kallim Stewart, usually their number position player, beat Jay Goldman on court two; 7-6 (5), 3-6, 7-5.

?

ˇ?I thought Cal was a little mentally tougher today, especially in the doubles,ˇ± said head coach Tad Berkowitz.? ˇ?I think our team has learned a lot in these two losses and hopefully it will make us stronger down the road.ˇ±

?

Arizona next will host the Arizona State Sun Devils on March 22nd at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center beginning at 12 p.m.
