The USF men's tennis team fell to Bay Area and WCC rival Santa Clara 5-2 in a rain-delayed match Thursday at the Olympic Club. The match was continued from Wednesday when rain stopped the action after the doubles competition.

USF, who trailed 1-0 after Wednesday's play as the Broncos had taken the doubles point, got a win at number one by Matthew Berry 6-3, 6-4 over the Broncos' Jan Macek. The Dons also got a win at the third slot by Thong Tu in straight sets over Brian Brogan. Santa Clara was able to clinch the match after Bob Rasmussen defeated Rainer Nachbauer at the four slot.
