(Pebble Beach, CA) - The Dons struggled on Saturday and fell to the University of Minnesota at the 2006 Pebble Beach Intercollegiate Tennis Shoot-Out.
The Dons were in command of the Doubles Point with the clinching match up 5-4 but freshman Korbi Kramer and junior Matt Berry lost a close one 8-6. Berry then bounced back in the singles to win 7-5, 6-7, 1-0; 10-8 in the super-tie-breaker against No. 65 Nationally Ranked DJ Geatz. Berry showed stamina and toughness to pull the match out in the end after a close second set tie-breaker. The Cape Town, South Africa native had strokes of greatness with backhands up the line and aggressive play.
The Dons return to action tomorrow at Pebble Beach, taking on Cal.
