Pacific Men's Tennis: Tigers Dominate Singles Action To Pick Up Their First Win Of The Year

Jan 28, 2012

Dominating the singles play against Northern California rival UC Davis, the Pacific men's tennis team earned its first match win of the season on Saturday, January 28.  The Tigers defeated the Aggies, 6-1, at home at Hal Nelson Tennis Courts to improve to 1-2 on the year and 1-0 in Big West Conference play.

In what turned out to be a nearly flawless day for the Tigers in their home debut of the Spring season, Pacific found itself down an early point against the Aggies as UC Davis took home the doubles point to begin the match.  Early on, the Aggies controlled the courts in the conference opener for both teams, taking both the No. 1 and No. 2 doubles matches before the Tigers could get on the board.  However, a late charge by the Tigers' No. 3 doubles team of Tomasz Krzyszkowski and Ben Mirkin gave the Tigers their first win of the afternoon and sparked what would become a rout of the visiting Aggies.

Immediately out of the gates in singles play the Tigers took firm command of the day as Pacific dominated the first sets of all six matches, giving up just one game in four of the six matcches on the courts.  With the first set in their pockets, the Tigers did not let up as they went for the clean sweep of the singles matches.  The first to finish the day for the Tigers was the senior Krzyszkowski, who finished the day without a loss as he took the No. 2 singles with an impressive 6-1, 6-1 victory over Kyle Miller.  Joining Krzyszkowski among the undefeated Tigers for the day was Mirkin, who won at No. 4 singles with a 6-1, 6-4 showing against Josh Albert.

The Tigers will be back in action on Saturday, February 4, when they travel to San Francsico to take on the Dons in non-conference action.  The match is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm from the Bay Club.
