Stanford men open tennis season with pair of victories

 

The 18th-ranked Stanford men's tennis team opened its season with a pair of victories Wednesday, beating visiting Sacramento State, 4-0, in the morning and topping visiting UC Davis, 4-0, in the afternoon.

David Wilczynski clinched the match against the Hornets, beating Mikus Losbergs, 6-0, 6-1, at No. 1 singles. The sophomore also clinched, with Yale Goldberg, the doubles point.

Against the Aggies, sophomore Tom Fawcett secured the victory at No. 1 singles, downing Alec Adamson, 7-6, 6-2.

The Cardinal (2-0) travels to the ITA Weekend Kickoff in New York to play No. 14 Virginia Tech (1-0) on Saturday and either Columbia or Minnesota on Sunday.

The No. 1 doubles team of Nolan Paige and Maciek Romanowicz completed a 6-4 win to earn the doubles point against UC Davis, while freshmen Michael Genender and Sameer Kumar preceded Fawcett's clinching victory.

Genender beat Everett Maltby, 6-3, 6-1, at No. 5 singles to make it 2-0, and Kumar finished with a 6-4, 6-1 win in the No. 6 spot over Eli Whittle.

Against the Hornets, Paige extended the Cardinal's lead to 2-0 with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Joaquin Marquez on court two, and Kumar notched a 6-1, 6-2 victory at the No. 3 spot over Kasparas Zemaitelis.

The match against Sacramento State was originally scheduled for last week but was postponed due to weather.
