Hello Friends of Badger Men's Tennis,
We had a great weekend on the road in the Pacific Northwest splitting a pair of matches versus the Pac-12. We started the weekend with a very good win over a tough Oregon team. Oregon has had a very solid start to their season including a huge home win over Pepperdine, but your Badgers were up to the task. We started off strong by winning the doubles point, and getting a quick win by Daniel Nuzhny at #6 to put us up 2-0. After a loss at #1, Sebastian Vile earned a straight set win at #4 to put us up 3-1. The clinching point would prove very tough to win as we were in 3rd sets in the final three matches. Tim Dzhurinskiy came up with the clinching 4th point with a 2-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4 win after saving match point in the second set. Parts capped off the 5-2 team win with another come from behind singles 3-set win for the Badgers.
Sunday's match versus Washington proved to be a little too tough. We started the morning great earning the doubles point with wins at #1 and #3. Unfortunately, we could only pick up one win in singles with Dzhurinskiy at #5. Washington is currently 9-3 and just came off hosting the ITA National Team Indoor Championships and was very sharp on their home courts.

We are very excited to play back at home this Saturday at Noon versus a very good Western Michigan team. WMU has played a tough schedule so far and is currently 4-5 on the season including a 6-1 win over Michigan State. We expect a very competitive match and having a great crowd will certainly help us this Saturday. Hope to see you at Nielsen Tennis Stadium (Indoors) this Saturday at Noon!
