Dons Whip Pacific 6-0 on Senior Day at The Olympic Club

April 14, 2007

USF men's tennis celebrated Senior Day by sweeping past visiting Pacific 6-0 in a rain delayed match Saturday at the Olympic Club. It was the final tuneup for USF before opening play in the WCC Championships next Friday in San Diego.

The match was delayed until 3:15 due to a morning rain, but after the senior ceremonies for Matthew Berry, it did not take the Dons long to get started.

The match began with singles, and USF got straight set wins by Berry, Falko Huettenberger, Rainier Nachbauer, Asaf Cohen and Greg Hom. USF also got a win at number two by Thong Tu that was decided in a 10-point tiebreaker.

For Berry, the only Dons' senior, the win at number one was his 14th in the last 16 contests.

The doubles competition was not played.
