TUCSON, Ariz . ?C The Arizona menˇ?s tennis team took on the Pacific Tigers at the Tucson Racquet Club today and won; 6-1 to improve to 5-0 on the season.

?

In doubles play, the No. 2 duo of Ravid Hazi and Bruno Alcala beat the Tigers twosome of Artem Gramma and Renan Delsin; 8-3.

?

Then, Jay Goldman and Claudio Christen , playing in the No. 1 spot, beat Mortiz Starke and David Gonzalez; 8-2.

?

On the third doubles court, Pat Metham and Andres ˇ?Nachoˇ± Carrasco beat Vegerd Veskimagi and Pedro Toledo; 8-3, to sweep the doubles point for the Wildcats.

?

In singles play, Christen was taken to three sets by Starke but was able to pull out the win; 6-3, 2-6, 6-3.

?

Playing in the third spot, Peter Zimmer won his singles match besting Delsin in straight sets; 6-4, 6-2.

?

The Cats dropped their first singles match of the year when Carrasco was defeated by Gonzalez in a match determined by a super-tiebreaker; 4-6, 6-4, 10-5. The match which was very spirited, pitted two very high energy, grind-it-out players against each other.

With Arizonaˇ?s fifth win today, they equaled their win total of all last season.

?

ˇ?I thought the guys competed well today. Weˇ?re obviously happy with the result and will look to use these early wins as momentum going into our first road match next week,ˇ± said head coach Tad Berkowitz.

?

Up next the Cats will travel to Texas for a two match road trip. On the trip they will square off against No.?41 Rice on Friday, then play No.?44 Texas A&M Corpus Christi on Saturday.
